Choice Hotels International continues to grow its extended stay segment with three new Everhome Suites under construction, and six more in various stages of development across the southern California region. For the first nine months of 2023, Choice's extended-stay hotel openings grew by 38 percent compared to the same period in 2022. Choice's extended-stay domestic pipeline increased 12 percent year over year to more than 47,000 rooms in the third quarter of this year. Choice currently has 60 Everhome Suites properties in the pipeline and over 250 across three other extended stay brands: MainStay Suites, Suburban Studios and WoodSpring Suites.
"With three new properties under construction in key California growth markets and six more Everhome Suites under development, Choice is continuing its leadership and growth in the extended-stay segment," Ron Burgett, senior vice president, franchise development, extended stay at Choice Hotels, said in a statement. "Despite challenges in new construction projects, our successful track record and strategic development approach, in collaboration with outstanding developers like Paladin Equity Capital, enable us to efficiently bring projects to fruition."
The new California properties under construction are Everhome Suites Temecula, Everhome Suites Ontario and Everhome Suites San Bernardino. There's currently double the demand compared to the supply of extended stay hotels, and some of the largest areas in demand are in Los Angeles and San Bernardino, according to Choice. Paladin Equity Capital established the inaugural Everhome Suites in Corona, Calif. in 2022, and is expanding with these three additional Everhome Suites and six additional projects in various stages of development.
The hotels under construction are slated to open in the second half of 2024 and early 2025. Each will have apartment-style rooms with well-defined areas and built-in ways for guests to customize the space.
The new hotel details are:
- Everhome Suites Temecula: A four story, 120-room property at 27165 Madison Avenue, Temecula, Calif.
- Everhome Suites Ontario: A four story, 113-room property at 1820 G Street, Ontario, Calif.
- Everhome Suites San Bernardino: A four story, 114-room property at 898 Harriman Place, San Bernardino, Calif.
"Choice Hotels has been an exceptionally supportive partner as we continue to build the Everhome Suites brand," said Philip Powers, partner at Paladin Equity Capital. "Our first Everhome Suites has been open for a year and really hit its stride. We have been in close collaboration with the Choice Extended Stay Brand and marketing teams, working to effectively drive brand awareness and book long staying guests. Their highly sophisticated approach has been a huge asset and we're confident the next three opening in 2024 will be very successful."
