WORLD'S SMALLEST HOLIDAY INN TO OPEN AT DANA POINT, CALIF.
DANA POINT, Calif., May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's smallest Holiday Inn hotel will open June 1 at Dana Point, Calif. The Holiday Inn Express-Dana Point/Edgewater features just 30 rooms in a setting of sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and a pristine bay midway between Los Angeles and San Diego. The hotel capitalizes on the natural beauty that prompted writer and sailor Richard Dana to call the area "the only romantic spot in California." The hotel is nestled between the cliffs of Capistrano Bay, adjacent to renowned Doheny Beach, just three miles from the Old Mission San Juan Capistrano. "Because our hotel is small, we are able to give our customers personalized attention and service," said Darin Klein, managing partner. The hotel offers rooms with private balconies, fireplace suites with ocean views, suites with in-room whirlpools, rooms with kitchenettes and an atrium whirlpool overlooking Capistrano Bay. "Operating as the independent Edgewater Inn, we drew most of our customers from throughout southern California," Klein said. "By affiliating with Holiday Inn we can increase our share of business in two areas: families and business travelers. Holiday Inn markets itself as the Official Hotel for Family Fun and the natural and historic attractions around our hotel certainly build on that theme. In addition, our goal is to lure business travelers, who regularly travel between San Diego and L.A., off the interstate for a change-of-pace stay with us. We think a number of business travelers would quickly trade a sterile urban hotel for the getaway we have to offer here under the Holiday Inn umbrella." To cater to the business traveler, the Holiday Inn Express-Dana Point provides in-room laptop/modem capability as well as fax and copy services. Near the hotel are opportunities for fishing, boating, water sports, golf, fitness, hiking, shopping and, in season, observing the coastal migration of California grey whales. Like all Holiday Inn Express properties, the Dana Point hotel features a complimentary continental breakfast and free local phone calls. Holiday Inn Worldwide, which is owned by Bass PLC of the U.K., is the world's leading hotel chain, with more than 1,700 hotels and 330,000 guest rooms in 56 countries and territories around the world. -0- 5/25/93 /CONTACT: Darin Klein, managing partner of Holiday Inn Express Dana Point, 714-240-0150/
