Holiday Inn,  c.1950s

Utica, New York 

Hey, did you know that Kemmons Wilson decided to build his own Hotel after being terribly dissappointed by inconsistent and poor quality roadside accomodations after a family road trip? The name Holiday Inn was given to the original hotel by his architect Eddie Bluestein as a joke, in reference to the 1942 musical film,  Holiday Inn, starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire.
