On the Journey to Extraordinary there's always a Holiday Inn® Hotel

Millions of people come through our doors every year. Every one of them is on a journey. Every one of them has a story to tell. Here, we shine a light on some of these guests and celebrate the extraordinary in all of us.

This is Majora Carter from the South Bronx. She still lives there, and now travels the world helping people and communities gain access to the jobs and opportunities they need. We’re honored she’s shared her journey with us and excited to share it with you. #JourneyOn
