Hospitality Lodging Systems adds four new properties

The three brands operated by Atlanta-based Hospitality Lodging Systems — Budgetel Inns & Suites, Haven Inns & Suites and AmeriVu Inns & Suites -- continue to grow with the addition of four new properties.

Budgetel now has 30 properties open and is adding two more within the next month:
Chattanooga, Tenn.—with 280 rooms will become the largest Budgetel in the U.S.
Stone Mountain, Ga.—with 100 rooms in the Atlanta metropolitan area.

Haven Hotels, which was introduced in December of 2014, has five properties open, including a 63-room hotel that opened in Birmingham, Ala., in September. An additional Haven property is under construction in Houston, a 40-room hotel scheduled to open in time for the NFL’s Super Bowl in that city on Feb. 5, 2017.

AmeriVu, which joined HLS in March of this year with five properties under a long-term licensing agreement, now operates six properties.

“Our brands appeal to owners who want a sound long-term investment together with strong immediate returns,” said Doug Collins, chairman of HLS. “We are able to deliver more profits and greater operating freedom by having lower fees, fewer mandated amenities and less bureaucracy.”

HLS contracts include an annual exit opportunity, flat monthly royalty and marketing fees and a comprehensive reservation management system with multiple internet booking sources.
