According to the brand’s latest announcement, more avid hotels are opening soon, with nine additional properties in Lancaster, Pennsylvania; Beaumont, Texas; Grovetown, Georgia; Perry, Georgia; Monona, Wisconsin; Orlando, Florida; Midland, Texas; Portland, Texas and Yukon, Oklahoma expected to open before the end of 2019.
“A compelling proof point of owner belief”
Jennifer Gribble, vice president, avid hotels, IHG, commented: “In partnership with Champion Hotels and Hi-Tech Hospitality, we are excited to grow from one to three avid hotels properties now open. The impressive construction timeline is a compelling proof point of owner belief in the brand and strong consumer demand for a hotel stay that is laser-focused on the amenities and experiences that are most important, like a great night’s sleep, cleanliness and a fresh cup of coffee with a balanced breakfast offering.”
International growth is strong as well with the first signing in Germany announced earlier in 2019, as well as multiple properties under development in Mexico and Canada.
