New Year. New Experience.

downloadThe Holiday Inn Express in Grenada might best be summed up simply as “New.”  2017 brings with it recently added leadership, a major renovation, and fresh perspective on hospitality.  General Manager Mary Graydon had no hotel management experience before being hired by MMI Hotel Group to lead the team at Holiday Inn Express.  “Mary has not only hit the mark, but exceeded expectations for our Team Members and guests alike,” states Scott Sledge, MMI’s VP of Operations.  “Her experience in getting The Polar Express ‘down the tracks’ is similar to what we do in the hotel business.  It’s all about the people.”

The hotel business is about hosting an environment that is safe, fresh and welcoming.  With guest service scores putting the Grenada property in the top ranks nationally, ownership knew it was time to ensure that the quality of product was appropriate.  As a result, Holiday Inn Express-Grenada is undergoing a significant renovation that pretty much touches every surface of the hotel –inside and out, guestrooms and common areas.  With a design that puts sleep quality, simplicity, and ease of maintenance at the center of its concept, Formula Blue, the franchisor’s latest prototype design is meant to appeal to Holiday Inn Express’s target guest—the “smart traveler.”   The renovation is being completed one floor at a time to ensure that guest impact is minimal before a schedule completion date in the second quarter of 2017.

MMI Selected to Manage Operations for Ridgeland Hotel

unnamedMMI Hotel Group, a full-service hospitality management company, has been appointed by Rambakir of America, LLC to oversee all operations and sales services for the 111-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites–Ridgeland.  Having recently completed a refresh of the property’s interiors and parking lot, the hotel is positioned well for IHG Reward Club members and highway-bookers alike.  The consistency that a traditional Holiday Inn Express guest has come to expect will be found in Ridgeland.

MMI will add Holiday Inn Express & Suites-Ridgeland to an already strong portfolio of independent and franchised select-service hotels across greater Jackson.  “Strength comes in numbers when one is looking to ensure a quality of experience across a community,” stated Scott Sledge, VP of Operations for MMI Hotel Group.  “Our reputation stands on the security and service provided in our hotels for first time visitors and long-term business relationships alike.  We believe the community will recognize the support MMI brings to the existing on-property and are grateful to the hotel’s owners for giving us this opportunity.”
