Ida Engel (July 20, 1903 – April 30, 2002) was an American actress.
In 1994, she appeared as herself in the movie Young at Hearts, a documentary about eight Los Angeles women who remain happy and young at heart.
Ida Engel became best known in the commercials for Holiday Inn. A Generation X slacker in his thirties would make demands of his grandmother, played by Engel, and the grandmother would cachinnate, and ask, "What do you think this is, the Holiday Inn?"
