Pillar Hotels & Resorts warned state regulators Tuesday that it would lay off more than 150 employees in Frederick and Cumberland as it ends a management contract with Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express locations.

The workers could be hired by the Texas company's successor, however. Pillar told the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation that it expected the new managers would ask employees to apply to stay on.

Neither Pillar nor Holiday Inn's parent, InterContinental Hotels Group, returned calls seeking comment.

Pillar told the state that it would have to let go 87 employees at the Holiday Inn in Frederick, 19 employees at the Holiday Inn Express in Frederick, and 53 employees at the Holiday Inn in Cumberland.
