Woolley’s Classic Suites
By WCS Hotels
Led by the legacy of innovative hotelier Robert E. Woolley, the company’s experienced development team brings a revitalized vision of success worth repeating. Robert E. Woolley is recognized in the hospitality industry for creating incomparable guest experiences and championing customer service. In 1969, he created the first all-suite hotel by converting an apartment complex into the original Granada Royale Hometel, thus revolutionizing the hotel industry with the launch of the all-suite lodging category now populated with thousands of all-suite hotels worldwide. From the first hotel, the Granada Royale brand grew to 26 properties with approximately 75 franchised locations, and in 1984, Holiday Inn purchased the chain. Woolley became the largest franchisee of Embassy Suites and went on to develop more than 45 hotels and 10,000 suites before launching his newest venture, Woolley’s Classic Suites.
