AmericInn’s portfolio includes 200 mainly franchised hotels with 11,600 guest rooms in 21 states, with 23 more properties in the works. If the deal receives regulatory approval, Wyndham will increase its Midwest and midscale hotel footprint.
When asked about the reasons for the acquisition, Geoff Ballotti, Wyndham Hotel Group’s president and CEO, cited AmericInn’s consistently high guest satisfaction scores in an area where he sees opportunity for growth.
“AmericInn’s guest-centric culture aligns perfectly with our values, making it a fantastic tuck-in brand for us,” he said. “With the global middle class expected to more than double in the next 10 years, we know investing in the midscale segment allows us to offer great experiences and value at price points that travelers need and where they want to be.
It also offers AmericInn guests to access Wyndham Rewards loyalty program.
