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.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


Construction also will start up this spring for My Place’s Shakopee, Minn., property. Situated southwest of Minneapolis and St. Paul, the hotel will stand four stories high and offer 63 units. Like My Place’s upcoming Kansas location, it should open by the end of 2019.

With 45 hotels already open and operating in the United States, My Place Hotels’ near-term pipeline includes an additional 75 properties, with more than 40 more to follow. The hotel franchise company currently operates in 21 states, a number that should rise to 27 by the end of the year.
