IHG opens 60th avid hotel

IHG Hotels & Resortsavid hotels has opened its 60th property, avid hotel Atlanta – Conyers I-20, the brand’s sixth hotel in Georgia.

With 11 new openings in 2022 and an additional 145 in the pipeline across the Americas region, including 16 under construction, avid hotels is on pace to nearly quadruple in size in the coming years.

Karen Gilbride, VP, avid hotels, said, “It’s incredible to be celebrating this milestone for the brand. This is a testament that our ‘just right’ approach—to deliver the basics done exceptionally well at a fair price—is resonating with both owners and guests. We’ve been focused on growing the avid brand and our footprint in North America. We recently opened our first-ever property in Canada, have expanded our presence in Mexico with three open hotels and are now welcoming guests in 24 states across the U.S.—all with the same core proposition of a great night’s sleep in a hotel that is modern, clean, comfortable and dependable no matter where or when you stay.”

Owned by Comfort World USA LLC, the 95-room hotel features a fitness center and the complimentary Good all-around grab-and-go breakfast, along with bean-to-cup coffee. It is close to historic Olde Town Conyers, Georgia International Horse Park and Cherokee Run Golf Club, and is 24 miles east of downtown Atlanta.

Along with avid hotel Atlanta – Conyers I-20, other recently opened hotels include avid hotels – Fort Wayne North in Indiana, avid hotel Toronto – Vaughan Southwest and avid hotel Odessa Northwest in Texas. New openings for the brand later this year include properties in Tuscaloosa, AL; Austin; and Tulsa, OK.
