My Place Hotels of America opened the brand’s newest location in Yakima, marking its third location to open in Washington. Located at 21 South 18th Street, the three-story, 64-room hotel opened its doors for business on Nov. 6 as America’s 44th My Place location across 21 states.

My Place Hotel-Yakima, Wash., provides access to the Yakima Greenway and Sara Hubbard Park. Hotel guests also are able to access Yakima’s downtown, the Yakima Speedway and a variety of dining and retail options nearby.

Yakima’s newest hotel is independently owned and operated by Thind PMR Enterprises IV. The location becomes the brand’s first to be opened by a member of the Asian American Hotel Owners Association, the largest hotel owners association in the world, with Minnie Thind, president of Thind PMR Enterprises, launching the hotel.
