Namora Hotels acquires the Holiday Inn in Big Rapids

Big Rapids – Namura Hotels, a Bloomfield Hills-based hotel ownership and management company, recently announced its acquisition of the Holiday Inn in Big Rapids.

The Holiday Inn will be converted into a Holiday Inn Express by spring 2022, which will feature the Holiday Inn Express brand’s latest design: Formula Blue.

Guestrooms will include flexible workspace, functional storage units, horizontal luggage storage, ergonomic movable seating that allows guests to use the space in the ways that best suit them, and newly designed guest room décor.


The open lobby design will enable guests, particularly business travelers, to connect and cater to their overall technology needs. Additional hotel amenities include an indoor pool, exercise room, and free WIFI, as well as fax and copy services.

“With the Formula Blue concept, we expect this to be an award-winning hotel and the preferred accommodation option for business and leisure travelers in the Big Rapids and Mecosta County area,” said Julie Allen, Regional Director of Sales and Marketing.

Asad Malik, President and CEO, said clean, modern and tech-friendly accommodations will be brought to the Big Rapids community with the addition of the Holiday Inn Express & Suites.

“On behalf of Namura Hotels, this is going to be a very exciting project, much needed in hotel improvements,” added Mark Kouekendall, Regional Director of Operations. “Once the conversion to the Holiday Inn Express is complete, we look forward to our guests enjoying this modern and impressive property.”

The Holiday Inn is located at 1005 Perry Avenue.
