US: WoodSpring Suites has started 2019 as one of Choice Hotels’ fastest-growing brands.

WoodSpring has gained especially strong traction in the western US, and it is progressing toward its goal of 300 hotels open across the US by the end of next year.

"Every month since the acquisition, WoodSpring Suites has delivered for Choice and our owners, who appreciate the brand's operating model, franchisor support, and return on investment," said Ralph Thiergart, vice president and general manager, extended stay brands, Choice Hotels. "We're particularly pleased that a dozen extended-stay hotels have already opened this year-several of which expand our footprint in the western US."

From the start of the year to the end of May 2019, WoodSpring opened the following hotels:

    WoodSpring Suites Portland North Gresham - Portland, Ore.
    WoodSpring Suites Harrisburg Linglestown - Linglestown, Pa.
    WoodSpring Suites Naples - Naples, Fla.
    WoodSpring Suites Indianapolis Zionsville - Whitestown, Ind.
    WoodSpring Suites Merrillville - Merrillville, Ind.
    WoodSpring Suites Davenport - Davenport, Iowa

    WoodSpring Suites St. Paul Woodbury - Woodbury, Minn.
    WoodSpring Suites Orlando International Drive - Orlando, Fla.
    WoodSpring Suites Quantico - Stafford, Va.

Choice says the brand continues to draw strong interest from developers across the country. In the first quarter, Choice awarded seven WoodSpring franchise agreements and increased the brand's pipeline by 22 per cent to 110 hotels.

"Since the Choice acquisition, the WoodSpring brand has taken off with developers and shows no sign of slowing down," said Ron Burgett, vice president, extended stay hotels development, Choice Hotels. "We're proud to bring our proven extended-stay brand to more markets and expand WoodSpring's footprint across the nation."
