Choice Hotels International has announced a deal with Gulf Coast Hotel Management to convert 15 properties to its MainStay Suites portfolio, the largest multi-unit transaction in the brand’s history.
Altogether the hotels offer nearly 1,700 rooms, significantly increase the brand’s presence in the midscale extended stay segment.
Three of the hotels are located in Illinois, in Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg and Wheeling. Another three are in the North Carolina cities of Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh. Two more are in Auburn Hills and Farmington Hills, MI.
Other hotels to be rebranded include Centennial, CO, Meriden, CT, Altamonte Springs, FL, and Blue Ash, OH. The remaining properties are located in Louisville, Omaha and Salt Lake City.
MainStay Suites is an extended-stay hotel brand offering residential style suites, free high-speed Internet access, free continental breakfast, fitness center and weekly housekeeping and guest laundry services.
Choice International has over 70 MainStay Suites properties across the United States, with 140 currently in the pipeline.
Together with MainStay Suites, Choice International also offers two other extended stay brands, WoodSpring Suites and Suburban hotels. A fourth Choice extended stay brand, Everhome Suites, broke ground on its first property last January in Corona, CA.
