On Sept 17, Holiday Inn unveils the world’s first Key Card Hotel – the first ever hotel made of key cards – 200,000 Holiday Inn key cards, to be specific. It weighs 4,000 pounds and took four months to construct.
The 400 sq. ft. Key Card Hotel was built by Cardstacker Bryan Berg, and includes a guest bedroom, bathroom and lobby, all fully equipped with life-sized furniture made out of Holiday Inn key cards.
The key card hotel will be open for viewing from Sept 17-21 at South Street Seaport in downtown Manhattan. During the five day event, Bryan Berg will build a freestanding 9-ft replica of New York’s Empire State Building in the lobby of the Key Card Hotel, using Holiday Inn branded playing cards.
If you stop by there, don’t forget to pick up your ‘virtual key card’ game piece – you might be the one with the ‘master key’ and win an all-expense paid trip to a Holiday Inn of their choice, anywhere in the world.
IHG is relaunching its Holiday Inn brand hotels globally, and the Sept 17 key card stackup is meant to mark the relaunch of 1200 Holiday Inn hotels.
Even if you can’t be there, all Holiday Inn guests can enter the the Key to Change promotion for a chance to win free nights at a newly relaunched Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express.
