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.

“We are extremely excited to be able to open the doors to the very first My Place Hotel in Yakima! From the very beginning, the concept of My Place resonated with us and aligned with what we recognized the community needed,” Thind said in a statement. “Being able to expose Yakima and its surrounding communities to such a phenomenal brand that offers a quality stay at a reasonable price leaves us with such warm feelings that will last over the location’s many years to come!”

Terry Kline, My Place Hotels EVP of franchise sales and development said the brand is welcoming its newest member to the family in the Pacific Northwest and as another key location in Washington state.

“We are extremely excited to congratulate our partners at Thind PMR Enterprises on opening their first My Place Hotel,” said Kline. “As our brand continues to proliferate in the Pacific Northwest region and make our mark on Washington state, we can only be grateful for our franchise partners who have made it possible for us to tap into such a great community, while also upholding the very pillars of our brand as the trailblazers of our westward expansion!”
