Avid Hotels’ second and third hotels officially opened in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla., this week. Before the end of the year, the midscale IHG brand plans on opening nine additional properties in Lancaster, Pa.; Beaumont, Texas; Grovetown, Ga.; Perry, Ga.; Monona, Wis.; Orlando; Midland, Texas; Portland, Texas and Yukon, Okla.

Last August, Avid Hotels introduced its first hotel, the Avid Hotel Oklahoma City – Quail Springs. This week, the Avid Hotel Oklahoma City Airport and the Avid Hotel Tulsa South – Medical District, joined it. Champion Hotels owns and operates both Oklahoma City hotels. It owns the Tulsa hotel with Hi-Tech Hospitality, which also operates it. All three properties are 87-room, new-build hotels.

The brand signed a deal with GS Star earlier this year to open its first location in Germany. GS Star has a development agreement with the brand to open 15 Avid hotels in the country. Avid Hotels also has multiple properties under development in Mexico and Canada.
