Featuring five distinct brands - Red Carpet Inn, Scottish Inns, Master Hosts Inns, Downtowner Inns and Passport Inn - hihotels is attracting more and more hoteliers thanks to its unique franchising model that delivers customized support, advanced technology and overall value.

The response has been tremendous and we look forward to building on this great momentum in 2021," said hihotels President & CEO Chris Guimbellot.
