My Place Hotels of America announced plans to open three new locations this year in the Midwest. The new properties will open between this summer and the end of 2019 and mark the company’s first properties in Wisconsin, Kansas and Minnesota.

With construction already underway on a Mount Pleasant, Wis., property, My Place expects to introduce its first new Midwest hotel this summer. The new three-story, 64-unit hotel, located directly between Chicago and Milwaukee, will offer quick access to Foxconn’s developing Wisconsin campus, the University of Wisconsin-Parkside and Petrifying Springs Park.

Work on My Place’s upcoming three-story, 64-unit Overland Park, Kan., hotel should start this spring and finish in time for a 2019 opening. Southwest of Kansas City, the location is a short distance from the 135th Street Business Park, Blue Valley Recreation Sports Complex and Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex.
