Vantage Hospitality Signs Agreement with American Hotels International and Expands into North Africa
Value Inn Worldwide Flag to Fly in Morocco and Tunisia
“After researching many hotel companies, we chose Vantage because of its corporate philosophy of putting hoteliers first. The depth of the company’s worldwide resources, innovative programs, and giving hotel owners the freedom to make their own business decisions is a proven formula for success and continues to attract hotel owners throughout the world,” said Abdessamad (“Sam”) Nhairy, principal of AHI. Plans include rebranding hotels in the imperial cities of Morocco (Casablanca, Rabat, Fez, Marrakesh) and Tunisia (Tunis, Carthage).
“Sam’s industry expertise is a great advantage for developing our brand with hotel owners. By initially targeting popular tourist areas, we’re confident that Value Inn Worldwide will exceed its potential and become the hotel of choice for the leisure and business traveler. We’re looking forward to a successful relationship,” said Bill Hanley, Partner and Managing Director of International Development for Vantage.
The properties being developed by AHI will be following Vantage’s Freestyle Membership Model. Created by Vantage’s CEO, president and founder, Roger Bloss, it is considered an “affordable alternative to franchising.” This membership model offers hotel owners low, flat monthly fees based on number of rooms; no royalties; short-term contracts, no liquidated damages, a choice of amenities, and a voice and a vote in all major brand decisions.
