The 138-room WoodSpring Suites Orlando International Drive, franchised by Choice Hotels International in collaboration with Pearl Eagles, has opened in Florida. It marks the brand’s third location in the area, joining the WoodSpring Suites Orlando East and the WoodSpring Suites Orlando Clarcona.

The hotel features an expanded lobby with a coffee station, free Wi-Fi, a fitness center and a 24-hour laundry room. Guest accommodations come in three layouts, each with an in-room kitchen with a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher and stove.

"Orlando is an amazing growth market not only for its jobs-building economy, but because of its ability to attract tourists from around the world,” Ralph Thiergart, Vp/GM, extended stay brands at Choice Hotels, said in a statement. “And as the city continues to grow, so does the need for affordable extended-stay accommodations for vacationers, families between homes, and folks in town for long-term project work."
