BELLINGHAM, Wash. – There will be a new Holiday Inn hotel within walking distance of the Bellingham International Airport.

The Port of Bellingham Commission approved the plan for the 150 room hotel on Tuesday.

Port Real Estate Director Shirley McFearin says the hotel may be finished and open as early as the summer of 2015.
