Leland, NC: As of February 2020, a partnership group associated with Crown Hotel & Travel Management secured another site in Leland, NC within the Waterford community adjacent to the Harris Teeter, to build a new hotel. The same group owns the Holiday Inn Express Leland-Wilmington Area in  Magnolia Greens. The new property will be developed by Claredon Properties and managed by Crown Hotel & Travel Management. Both companies are based in Wilmington, NC.

The new hotel will include 93 rooms, an indoor pool, continental breakfast, and other amenities. “We have always been pleased with the performance of our Holiday Inn Express Leland-Wilmington area and believe it’s time to add another hotel.  Leland is a vibrant town with the type of growth we look for when evaluating new sites.” said Barry Eagle, President/CEO of Crown Hotel & Travel Management. “We are still evaluating brands but are sure it will either be associated with Hilton or Marriott.”

Claredon Properties LLC President, John Sandlin states, “Claredon Properties is looking forward to working with Crown to develop another hotel in the area. We are excited to start on this new project in the rapidly growing Leland area.”
