Ready, Set, Renovate Teams with Holiday Inn Club Vacations to Re-Inspire Hospitality Villas at Give Kids The World Village

Posted May 24, 2018

ORLANDO, FLA. (May 24, 2018) – Orange Lake Resorts, home to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand, rallied 33 of its vendors to donate time and resources, while the in-house design team at Holiday Inn Club Vacations created incredible, new spaces for Give Kids The World Village’s hospitality suites. The Florida-produced television program Ready, Set, Renovate partnered with the brand to chronicle the project and will air the show in six Florida cities beginning May 26.

Four of the suite’s rooms were themed by the design team from Holiday Inn Club Vacations into unique settings, with renovations completed in only two weeks. Families arriving or departing the resort can relax in specially designed hospitality suites that now include themed princess, outdoors, aquatic and gaming rooms. Updated kitchens, furniture, outdoor seating and common areas complete the transformation of the villas.

“Our team put a lot of thought and creativity into designing these rooms,” said Tammy Oliver, Vice President, Design & Development for Orange Lake Resorts. “Each of our designers developed the rooms’ look and feel, and then worked closely with our vendors to execute the vision to perfection. I am so proud of the team and our business partners for putting their hearts into these fantastic transformations.”

Give Kids The World President and CEO Pamela Landwirth said the new hospitality suites are “something we’ve needed for many years, and we’re incredibly grateful to Holiday Inn Club Vacations for making them a reality.

“They’re a wonderful gift to our visiting families,” Landwirth said, “and a testament to the generosity of Holiday Inn Club Vacations and all the companies who became part of the project.”

Ready, Set, Renovate airs in six Florida television markets: Orlando (WKMG) West Palm (WPTV), Fort Myers (WINK), Jacksonville (WJXT), Pensacola (WPMI) and Tallahassee (WTXL). Segments of the show also air on “Daily Flash,” a Miami-based show that is broadcast throughout the country.
