Dallas, Texas – Accor North America, one of the nation’s largest owner/operators of economy lodging, announces the completion of its renovated property in Jackson, Wyoming. To celebrate the renovation and to showcase the new modern look and feel, Motel 6’s president and chief operations officer, Jim Amorosia, and the Jackson Motel 6 staff welcomed community members and guests at an on-site ceremony and offered tours of the new guestrooms.
“We are truly happy that the city of Jackson can now include the new Motel 6 “Phoenix” experience as an affordable lodging option for visitors,” said Olivier Poirot, CEO of Accor North America, Motel 6 and Studio 6.
The newly renovated Jackson property features elements of the new “Phoenix” prototype design, which includes a modernized interior, sleek European boutique-style guestroom, wood-effect laminate flooring, 32” flat-screen TVs and granite bathroom countertops.
Located near both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, the renovated Motel 6 property is in a perfect position to offer a fresh, modern and comfortable lodging option for friends and visitors to the area – still at the lowest price of any national chain.
The new modern guestroom design features bright accent colors, ambient lighting, and a pedestal bed that complements the room’s sleek, clean design. Additionally, guestrooms include a multi-media panel with A/V plug-ins for mp3 players, video game systems and laptop computers; Wi-Fi internet access; and a settee/banquette area for two.
In addition to its modern styling, the “Phoenix” design also incorporates a number of green and environmentally-friendly features. The renovated Jackson property utilizes Motel 6’s current energy management practices including the disposal of hazardous waste with a Fluorescent Light Bulb and Battery Recycling Program and reduced water consumption with low-flow aerators for faucets and shower heads and 1.1 gallon low-flow toilets. The wood-effect laminate flooring is made of 80% pre-consumer recycled material.
Unveiled in March of 2008, the efficient, simple and modern design of the “Phoenix” represents a revolution for economy lodging in both appearance and environmentally-conscious practices. It is changing the way travelers look at economy lodging – offering guests a modern feel while maintaining Motel 6’s traditional affordability.
Currently, Motel 6 corporate properties in select markets around the country are being renovated with elements of the new prototype.
