Holiday Inn & Suites
Ocean City, MD
Gillis Gilkerson began pre-construction services for the new Holiday Inn & Suites on 17th Street in Ocean City in 1999. In order to meet the owner’s aggressive schedule, this project morphed into a multi-phase project. Phase one included the demolition of an existing hotel on the south side of the property and the start of vertical construction of the new hotel. The team was able to meet the owner’s budget which allowed phase two to commence with the demolition of another existing hotel and vertical construction on the north side. Phase three of the project included an indoor pool, two restaurants and additional ocean view hotel rooms.
The finished product includes 210 rooms, two outdoor swimming pools, one indoor pool, an oceanfront splash park, restaurants, a fitness center and meeting rooms. All the suite style rooms are equipped with sitting areas, full kitchens, a bathroom, bedroom and some include a Jacuzzi style tub.
The team overcame unique challenges in keeping the phase one tower weather tight while joining the phase two section with the phase three portion of the hotel. They also mastered the scope and size of the overall build with tight lot lines and clearances, as it covered an entire ocean front block in Ocean City.
In its time, Holiday Inn 17th Street was the largest hotel in the resort town to offer suite style rooms for visiting families and travelers.
