Americas Best Value Inn Enjoys More Solid Growth During First Quarter
Americas Best Value Inn® (including its sister brands, Canadas Best Value Inn® and Value Inn Worldwide®) began the year with the addition of 19 new properties during the first quarter of 2015. ABVI is part of the Vantage Hospitality Group family of brands, a top 10 global hotel company with over 1,200 properties.
The Canadas Best Value Inn brand expanded in British Columbia with a 2-diamond, CAA-approved Inn & Suites in Castlegar. Formerly a Quality Inn, the 48-room property brings the current CBVI total to 31 hotels in seven provinces and territories throughout the country.
"Throughout North America, hotel owners continue to embrace ABVI's innovative model that provides the best value and most reliable return on investment in brand affiliation. Hoteliers are joining to enjoy our numerous innovative programs and comprehensive resources that help them drive revenue," said Patrick Mullinix, Group President of Vantage's Value Brands.
A limited-service brand, ABVI operates under Vantage Hospitality's unique Freestyle® brand affiliation, which allows hotel owners to pay low, flat, monthly fees based on number of rooms – not a percentage of revenue as do traditional hotel brands that typically charge fees that are three to five times higher than ABVI's. Owners also enjoy low, straightforward fees; reasonable agreements; A Voice and A Vote® in the direction of the brand; and sensible property improvement plans.
Vantage also grew earlier this year when it acquired the America's Best Inns & Suites®, Country Hearth Inn & Suites® and Jameson Inn® brands, and the current licenses, as part of its commitment to ensure that it is able to offer clearly distinct brands for each segment of the industry, from budget through upscale. Vantage also has re-launched Signature Inn®, acquired at the same time, as a budget brand.
