Magnuson Hotels

Magnuson Hotels operates three related brands in three separate industry sectors: Magnuson Grand with five properties operating in the upscale category, Magnuson Hotel with 78 properties operating in the midscale segment, and M Star Hotel with 15 properties focuses on the economy tier. Yet Magnuson, which is based in Spokane, Wash., operates as an independent hotel group as opposed to a traditional franchise operation. Hotels participating in the Magnuson system receive global brand representation, including a hotel reservation network, access to worldwide global accounts, and a number of internet booking channels. Last year Magnuson announced a partnership with Paris-based Louvre Hotels Group to place both company’s combined inventories on a shared distribution platform, an agreement that combined the companies resources and technologies to reciprocally sell one another’s room nights in noncompeting territories. In February, Magnuson announced a new initiative that would reinvest 20 percent of membership fees into co-op marketing endeavors.
