Dissatisfied with his experiences at other motels, Kemmons Wilson decided he could do better and began work on his first location. The name for it was actually offered as a joke by his architect, referring to the musical film Holiday Inn that had come out a few years earlier.
The name stuck and the first Holiday Inn Hotel Courts opened in August of 1952 in Memphis. The next year, three more new hotels in the Memphis area were opened, and by 1956, there were 23 Holiday Inns in operation, all getting solid reviews from guests. Due to Wilson’s dedication to undoing his own disappointment in the industry, the chain took off and by 1968 the number of hotels with his joke of a name on it had reached 1,000 and were all getting excellent reviews.
