Special Operations Manager
We are known as the fastest growing brand in the history of the lodging industry (we opened 140 locations in 36 months). Our concept is a cross between a hotel and an apartment- we only rent rooms by the week. Our product is in high demand by business travelers and those who life’s circumstances cause them to need an extended stay hotel. Most locations have occupancy rates 20-25% greater than competitors.
As the largest economy extended stay lodging franchise in the U.S. we currently operate over 180 hotels in more than 30 states. By December 2016 we have plans to open another 125 locations, with goals to have 1,000 locations nationwide.
