ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Indus Mehta Properties, LLC of Pittsford, NY has opened a Microtel Inn & Suites hotel at 370 West Morris Street in Bath, NY, off I-86 in the southwestern Finger Lakes region, near Hammondsport and 43 miles from Elmira, NY. The new hotel showcases the brand's award-winning prototype design, and boasts a contemporary and streamlined, yet practical environment, with unexpected enhancements that guests would not ordinarily expect to find in an economy hotel. Microtel is the award-winning chain of all-new construction, interior corridor economy/limited service hotels.
The 67-room Microtel Inn & Suites in Bath is convenient to local wineries, Glen Curtis Museum, the Corning Museum of Glass and Watkins Glen Raceway. It is 80 miles from the Rochester, NY International Airport.
"We are proud to continue Microtel's expansion throughout New York State and to bring a new economy hotel with quality accommodations and reasonable rates to Bath," said Jett Mehta, managing member of Indus Mehta Properties, which owns and operates Microtel hotels in the Buffalo and Rochester, NY markets in Olean, Springville, Victor and Wellsville. "Microtel's prototype design sets a new standard for guests and defines the economy hotel of the future." Mehta is a former Microtel brand 'Franchisee of the Year' and all his company's Microtel hotels were named 'Quality Excellence' award winners at the brand's conference last February.
The three-story Bath, NY Microtel Inn & Suites offers single, double and suite accommodations. With the new design, the hotel's bold color palette known as "Metro" (one of the brand's six new palettes) integrates rich, deep colors to create a comfortable, inviting atmosphere and consistent theme throughout. All guestrooms feature a coffeemaker, microfridge, hairdryer, iron and board, as well as a 26-inch flat-panel television with HBO, ESPN and Pay-Per-View, sleek granite countertops, and desk units equipped with easily accessible power and data ports. Suites, equipped with 32-inch flat-panel televisions and Microtel's signature MicroKitchen™, are divided into four 'zones' with ample space to work, eat, sleep and relax.
Amenities include free local and free long distance phone calls anywhere within the continental U.S. and free WiFi in all guestrooms, Microtel's new complimentary Get Up and Joe™ continental daily breakfast and 24 hr. coffee and tea, a fitness center, business center, and guest laundry. The hotel features the stylish Microtel Dream Well™ bedding with plush pillow-top mattress and high quality white linens with triple sheeting.
The brand's new design – which is being launched at all new Microtel hotels – was created last November as an outgrowth of a competition that Microtel sponsored with the Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta (SCAD). It has received "Best Guestroom Design" in the limited-service category in the HotelWorld Global Hospitality & Design Awards competition, and Lodging Hospitality magazine's 2008 "Chain Leadership Award."
For the sixth consecutive year, Microtel has been ranked highest in guest satisfaction among economy hotel chains in the J.D. Power and Associates 2007 North America Hotel Guest Satisfaction Index StudySM.
There are currently 328 Microtels open and under construction worldwide. Microtel is a sponsor of The Society for Accessible Travel & Hospitality (SATH) and is known as the preferred hotel chain for travelers with disabilities.
