ATLANTA, July 14 // PRNewswire // -- Oneida-Verona Hotels, LLC of Rochester, NY has opened a Microtel Inn & Suites hotel at 5118 New York State Route 365 in Verona -- in the heart of central New York State and one mile from the New York State Thruway (I-90) at exit 33. The 81-room hotel showcases the Microtel brand's award-winning new prototype design, and boasts a contemporary and streamlined environment with unexpected amenities that guests would not ordinarily expect to find in an economy hotel -- such as free WIFI and free local and long distance phone calls. The new hotel is operated by Essex Hotel Management, Inc. of Rochester, NY and was constructed by Mahoney Custom Builders of Canastota, NY, also a partner in the project.
The Microtel Inn & Suites in Verona is adjacent to Turning Stone Resort Casino and the Skana Spa at Turning Point. It is nearby several championship area golf courses including Kaluhyat Golf Course, Shenendoah Golf Course and Atunyoute PGA Golf Course. Colgate University and Hamilton College are 24 miles away.
Microtel is the award-winning chain of all-new construction, interior corridor economy/limited service hotels. 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 Study(SM). The brand began with 22 hotels in Upper New York State in the late 1980's and now boasts more than 330 hotels open and under construction worldwide. Essex Hotel Management has been a longstanding developer and management company with the Microtel brand since it began, and continues to manage and develop Microtel properties in the eastern U.S.
"We are excited to continue Microtel's expansion throughout New York State and to bring a new and contemporary economy hotel with quality accommodations and reasonable rates to the Verona-Oneida area," said John Kattato, Director of Operations, Essex Hotel Management, Inc. "In addition, the hotel is ideally located -- right next to the Turning Stone Resort Casino and within easy access of the Interstate."
The three-story Verona Microtel Inn & Suites offers single, double and suite accommodations. With its new design, the hotel's color palette known as "Citrus" integrates clean lines with graphic forms and energetic color palettes for an altogether contemporary and inviting space and consistent theme throughout. All guestrooms feature a 32" flat-panel television with ESPN and Showtime; sleek granite countertops; desk unit with easily accessible power and data ports, and coffeemaker and hairdryer. Suites are equipped with Microtel's signature MicroKitchen(TM) with micro-fridge and microwave, and divided into four 'zones' with space to work, eat, sleep and relax.
Amenities at the new hotel include free local and free long distance phone calls anywhere within the continental U.S. and free WIFI. In addition, the hotel features the stylish Microtel bedding known as Dream Well(TM) with plush pillow-top mattress and fitted bed skirt, high quality 200-thread count white linens with triple sheeting, down-like blanket, bed scarf and extra pillows.
