From the Lodging Conference 2010, Choice Hotels International, Inc. recently announced that it will reach 1,000 domestic units online for its Quality Inn brand with the upcoming opening of the fully renovated 86-room Quality Inn & Suites Conference Center of Mattoon, Illinois. The Quality brand, franchised by Choice Hotels International, was the nation’s first hotel chain when formally founded as Quality Courts United in 1941. The brand has a rich history of industry firsts, including the first to guarantee reservations and to offer 24-hour desk service, in-room telephones and 24-hour-a-day, toll-free reservations.
Quality hotels are known worldwide for superior hospitality, having served travelers for nearly 70 years. Quality is a mid-priced hotel that offers all the accommodations and essentials to make each guest’s stay satisfying.
In the face of a continuing challenging economic environment – and with access to credit a significant barrier to hotel ownership – Choice has launched a limited-time offer for hotel developers interested in converting an existing hotel to the company’s Quality, Clarion or Econo Lodge brand. These brands represent strong conversion opportunities in the mid-scale and economy segments — with one of the world’s largest, most well-respected lodging franchisors.
