TAMPA, Florida—Red Roof has partnered with Dhruv Management to begin development on the HomeTowne Studios by Red Roof Tampa, Florida, and recently broke ground for the future HomeTowne Studios Bradenton, Florida. Dhruv Management owns and operates two Red Roof hotels in Alabama and Florida, with four more currently in various stages of development through its construction partner, Dhruv Development.

Once open, the HomeTowne Studios Tampa, Florida, will add 124 extended-stay suites to the local area. This hotel broke ground alongside the HomeTowne Studios Bradenton, a 124-suite property designed to appeal to long-term visitors to The Friendly City. Once completed, the HomeTowne Studios Tampa and HomeTowne Studios Bradenton will have kitchens with refrigerators, in-room WiFi, HD TVs with cable, and storage space designed for functionality and comfort.

“We are excited to partner with Red Roof on our latest extended-stay hotels with the HomeTowne Studios in Tampa and Bradenton,” said Amit Patel, CEO of Dhruv Development. “Red Roof is not just a franchisor; they are heavily invested in any franchisee partnership from the moment they sign a deal. Their assistance has been invaluable, from securing approvals to moving dirt. Thanks to Red Roof’s continued commitment to hospitality fundamentals, we are confident in the future of this hotel.”

“The upcoming HomeTowne Studios properties in Tampa and Bradenton, Florida, in combination with the experienced and diligent teams led by Amit Patel at Dhruv Development and Vijay Patel at Dhruv Management, are on the road to exceeding expectations across Florida,” said Matthew Hostetler, chief development officer at Red Roof. “Dhruv Management has been a leader in the Florida hospitality industry and nearby areas for nearly 20 years, and Red Roof is happy to play a continued part in their success. We remain committed to our partnership with Dhruv Management and are thrilled to take the next steps toward extending hospitality excellence to Florida travelers.”


Both the HomeTowne Studios Tampa and HomeTowne Studios Bradenton, Florida, are being built by Dhruv Development. HomeTowne Studios Tampa is convenient to the Tampa Airport and multiple attractions such as Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, The Florida Aquarium, Tampa Theatre, Tampa Riverwalk, and more. Both hotels are expected to open in 2024.
