Choice Hotels International opened its 10th Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites dual-brand location. The new property officially opened at the St. Louis Airport, and more than than 70 Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites dual-brand hotels remain in the company's pipeline throughout the U.S.

"We are seeing great progress for our Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites dual-brand concept as it offers tremendous value to guests and developers," Brian Quinn, VP, franchise development at Choice Hotels, said in a statement. "Our state-of-the-art design allows guests to experience the key features of two distinctive brands during their stay to exceed their needs. At the same time, the dual-brand locations provide developers with construction and operational efficiencies, as well as the ability to deliver a product that appeals to business, leisure and extended-stay guests—all under one roof. It truly is a win-win for everyone."

The Sleep Inn brand, a leader in midscale new construction, is designed to offer low costs to build alongside modern design rooted in nature elements. The brand's new prototype, introduced in 2016, offers modern updates that appeal to guests of today and tomorrow. MainStay Suites is an all-suites, extended-stay brand with a new prototype unveiled earlier this year that was inspired by hotel and residential design trends. The brand incorporates features such as open-concept community rooms and outdoor living spaces, and is designed for guests who are looking for long-term hotel options that feel like home. Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites dual-brand locations offer popular amenities, such as a free hot breakfast and Wi-Fi, meeting space and business and fitness centers.
