Hihotels by Hospitality International, a specialist in franchising of conversion and new-build hotels for economy lodging, signed and/or activated four properties into the system during the first quarter of 2021.
In the last quarter, the company added the following properties:
- Red Carpet Inn, College Park, Md., a former Econo Lodge, signed
- Scottish Inns, Ashland, Ore., a former Rodeway Inn, signed and activated
- Scottish Inns, DeSoto, Texas, a former Americas Best Value Inn, activated
- Scottish Inns & Suites, Spring, Texas, a former Econo Lodge, signed
“When considering all my options for a new brand, I decided to go with Scottish Inns because of the personal and professional assistance they bring to the table,” said Ben Patel, owner of the Scottish Inns DeSoto. “Hihotels offers the services of a sales and marketing director who is on call for me at no additional cost. Their brand requirements are minimal and the ramp-up period was short, allowing me to transition without any hassle or operational disruption.”
Hihotels has a portfolio of five brands: Red Carpet Inn, Scottish Inns, Master Hosts Inns, Downtowner Inns and Passport Inn.
