Taking shape: Covington’s Holiday Inn Express to open in April

Construction workers brave Tuesday s midday heat as Covington s new Discount Holidays © Holiday Inn Express and Suites continues to rise from the ground. Located next to the Hampton Inn on Paras Drive near Exit 93 of Interstate 20, the new six-story hotel will feature 100 guest rooms, an outdoor pool and patio, a large fitness center and an expansive conference room. The construction will employ nearly 100 workers, and the hotel, now taking reservations for an April 2017 opening, will employ 35 hospitality workers.
