Pipeline Surpasses 70 as Concept Expands Throughout U.S.
ROCKVILLE, Md., 2018-Jan-04 — /Travel PR News/ — Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world’s largest hotel companies, reached a milestone today with its 10th Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites dual-brand location opening at the St. Louis Airport. In addition, there are more than 70 Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites dual-brand hotels in the pipeline as the innovative concept continues to grow rapidly in the United States.
“We are seeing great progress for our Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites dual-brand concept as it offers tremendous value to guests and developers,” said Brian Quinn, vice president, franchise development, Choice Hotels. “Our state-of-the-art design allows guests to experience the key features of two distinctive brands during their stay to exceed their needs. At the same time, the dual-brand locations provide developers with construction and operational efficiencies, as well as the ability to deliver a product that appeals to business, leisure and extended stay guests – all under one roof. It truly is a win-win for everyone.”
The Sleep Inn brand, a leader in midscale new construction, offers the lowest cost to build in the segment along with a smart design rooted in timeless nature elements. The evolved prototype, introduced in 2016, offers modern, enduring innovations that appeal to guests of today and tomorrow. MainStay Suites is an all-suites, extended stay brand with a new prototype, unveiled earlier this year that was inspired by hotel and residential design trends. The brand incorporates features such as open-concept community rooms and outdoor living spaces, and is designed for guests who are looking for long-term hotel options that feel like home. Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites dual-brand locations offer popular amenities, like free hot breakfast and Wi-Fi, meeting space, and business and fitness centers.
Choice recently opened three new Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites dual-brand locations in Bridgeton, Missouri, Big Spring, Texas and Moab, Utah. There are now 10 open in the U.S.
“Choice Hotels’ Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites dual-brand is the perfect match for developers. It has provided me a strong return on my investment, and guests truly enjoy the flexibility that it offers for all types of travel,” said Sam Ursani, Rukshana Hospitality LLC, owner of the Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites – St. Louis Airport in Bridgeton, Missouri. “Choice has been a great collaborator and offers all of the resources to bring this unique concept to life. The combination of two well-established brands and the efficiency of construction and operations have contributed to our success.”
