The Quality Inn and Suites and Airport North Suites offers a unique opportunity to purchase a dual concept hotel asset. In 2016, ownership underwent a renovation program for the hotel and the process of upgrading the property, converted the 48 unit annex to accomodate exclusively extended stay guests. This split occurred in September 2016. Since that time, the Airport North Suites has grown occupancy to 89.9% with a monthly rate of $561.30 (daily RevPar of $18.71). Franchise fees will not be paid on the 48 unit Airport North Suites going forward.

At the same time, the 122 unit Quality Inn and Suites has benefited from an upgrade to the guestrooms and lobby area. Interestingly, for the first quarter of 2017, the 122 unit Quality Inn & Suites outperformed the 170 unit facility (prior to the Airport North Suites split) for the same time period in 2016. The first quarter Gross Room Revenue for the 2016 was $408,463 compared to $510,107 for the first quarter of 2017. Clearly, the strategy is working, and it will finish the year with record revenues for each hotel.
