“Choice evaluates growth opportunities carefully—and our deliberate strategy to welcome WoodSpring Suites into our family of brands is paying off,” said Patrick Pacious, president and CEO, Choice Hotels. “The WoodSpring Suites brand has seen significant business delivery growth nearly every month since the acquisition. As we continue to integrate the power of Choice with the brand, WoodSpring Suites’ trajectory as one of the fastest growing and most profitable hotel brands is expected to yield high returns on investment for its owners. In addition, the acquisition has benefited our entire extended-stay portfolio, including the MainStay Suites and Suburban Extended Stay brands, and solidifies our position as a leader in the extended-stay segment.”
The WoodSpring Suites brand expects to open approximately 20 hotels this year in markets, such as Miami and Orlando, Fla.; Sacramento, Calif.; and San Antonio. Choice anticipates having around 300 WoodSpring Suites hotels open and serving guests across the country by the end of 2020.
