Choice opens first Everhome Suites hotel

More than two years after announcing the brand, Choice Hotels International has opened its first Everhome Suites hotel. The Everhome Suites Corona in Riverside, Calif., has 98 apartment-style rooms and is close to Los Angeles and surrounding Riverside County towns.

“Two years ago, when we launched Everhome Suites, we set out to breathe new life into the segment with the first new midscale extended-stay brand in nearly a decade," said Anna Scozzafava, VP and general manager, extended stay, Choice Hotels. "Today, we are elated to bring the first hotel to life to meet the growing demand from franchisees seeking to capitalize on one of the industry’s fastest growing segments while also empowering guests’ success on the road. This grand opening represents the first of many milestones to come for the brand, and as Everhome begins to take off around the country, we can’t wait for guests to experience our hotels, which are designed to be just as flexible as them, so they can maintain their routine when away from home for days, weeks, or longer.”

“Creating a new brand is a journey into uncharted territory, but Choice has been extraordinarily supportive on every level in working with us to bring the very first Everhome Suites to market,” said Philip Powers, partner at real estate investment and development company Paladin Equity Capital. “The Everhome brand represents the culmination of Choice’s many years of experience in the extended stay arena, with a focus on the guest experience and a high-quality, stylish product. The Everhome Suites Corona represents the first of at least 10 Everhome Suites we plan to build in Southern California, with five already in various stages of development currently.”

Hotel Management & Consulting will manage the Everhome Suites Corona.
