Holiday Inn & Suites

Ocean City, MD

Holiday Inn

The Holiday Inn and Suites located on 17th Street in Ocean City, Maryland is a 14-story oceanfront hotel on the
Boardwalk. The massive building features 210 guest suites, each offering a full kitchen and luxury bathroom with
Jacuzzi bathtubs. There are indoor and outdoor swimming pools, restaurants, a health and fitness center and
game room. Gillis Gilkerson constructed this hotel in three phases, overcoming a number of logistical challenges
along the way.

Prior to commencing Phase I’s vertical construction on the Holiday Inn & Suites, Gillis Gilkerson demolished one of the two former onsite hotels; the other was later demolished as a part of Phase II. The construction team’s ability to deliver on time and within the allotted budget allowed for a seamless transition between Phases I, II and III. In the final phase, Gillis Gilkerson delivered an indoor pool, two restaurants and multiple ocean-view hotel rooms.

What Our Clients Say

“The original roof was only seven years old so finding out that we needed a whole new roof – the hard way – was disappointing. The team from Gillis Gilkerson addressed every single concern we had from the very beginning. They even called me on July 4th when we had bad storms in the area and asked if they could get inside the church to make sure everything was safe and secure. Now that’s commitment.”

~ Bruce Glisson,
Executive Pastor,
Allen Memorial Baptist Church

“The best compliment is repeat business. Dwight Miller has earned all of our business over the last 20 years and is always trustworthy and gets things done. If a problem or challenge arises, he will always take care of it.”

~ Dennis Silicato,
Silicato Development

“For a design/build project it is unusual for the initial cost estimates and timing to be maintained and in this case the project was completed on time and the costs were held to the contract level. In going into a design/build project like this, one always wonders if the right decision was made on the contractor selected. Now that the project has been completed, I can say that I know we made the right decision with Gillis Gilkerson.”

~ Norman S. Grubb,
Assistant to the President,
USAir Express
