ATLANTA — hihotels by Hospitality International, a company franchising conversion and new build hotels for economy lodging, today reported that it signed and/or activated 18 properties into the system in 2020.

Featuring five distinct brands—Red Carpet Inn, Scottish Inns, Master Hosts Inns, Downtowner Inns, and Passport Inn—hihotels’ franchising model is designed to deliver customized support, advanced technology, and overall value.

“Last June, we announced a new branding identity for the company that expanded franchisee services and development opportunities, and refocused our goal of becoming the best choice for economy hotel franchising. The response has been tremendous and we look forward to building on this great momentum in 2021,” said Chris Guimbellot, president & CEO, hihotels.
