hihotels added six properties in Q2

hihotels by Hospitality International signed and/or activated six properties into its system during the second quarter of 2021.

“We have been working aggressively to expand the footprint of our brands through what I call smart growth,” said Chris Guimbellot, president/CEO, hihotels, which consists of five brands—Red Carpet Inn, Scottish Inns, Master Hosts Inns, Downtowner Inns and Passport Inn. “Instead of focusing on the sheer number of hotels in the system, we are focusing more on hotels that are in good locations, are high quality and have ownership that has a desire to work together to achieve success for both their property and their franchise system. These new additions are perfect examples and will help increase the value of the system in the long term.”
