PARSIPPANY, N.J.—As an indication of the brand’s rapid growth and increasing interest in new construction development, Baymont Inn & Suites, part of Wyndham Hotel Group, recently announced the opening of its 350th hotel, a new-construction, 71–room property in Odessa, Texas.
The Baymont Inn & Suites Odessa is the most recent of several new-construction, prototypical Baymont Inn & Suites properties that have opened in the last 12 months, including new hotels in Erie, Pa.; San Angelo, Texas; Bellevue, Iowa; and Rapid City, S.D.
The brand, which consisted of 115 hotels when it joined the Hotel Group’s portfolio in 2006, has more than tripled in system size thanks to consistent growth into new domestic markets.
“We continue to focus on rapidly growing the Baymont Inn & Suites brand by working with great partners to develop new-construction properties and convert existing high-quality, limited-service hotels,” said Patrick Breen, brand senior vice president, Baymont Inn & Suites. “The momentum has been incredible and the accelerated interest from developers, owners, and operators is truly a testament to their belief in the potential of the brand.”
Properties such as those in Odessa, Texas, and Erie, Pa., were constructed using the brand’s interior prototype design, which was developed to revitalize the traditional white picket fence and hometown neighborhood brand appeal for today’s traveler. The properties feature textural stacked stone, dark wood, and white-painted wall paneling.
