CLEVELAND - March 19, 2014 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Value Place, the largest economy, extended-stay hotel brand in the U.S., has announced the grand re-openings of its hotels in Akron and Mentor, Oh. following their $500,000 renovations. These are two Value Place hotels of 10 that are currently open in Ohio.
Inspired by guest feedback and competitive offerings, Value Place enhanced the property by upgrading lighting, beds, and televisions, as well as amenities including high-speed, wireless Internet.
"Enhancing our current properties is a great way to improve our guest experience," says Value Place COO Kyle Rogg. "We already meet the 'needs' of budget-conscious guests. These upgrades answer the 'wants.'"
These local renovations are part of Value Place's national effort to enhance corporate-and franchisee-owned properties, all new construction between 2002 and 2013, to better serve business and personal travelers requiring a week or more of lodging.
Extended-stay hotels like Value Place are an appealing option for government employees, military personnel, business travelers, and construction workers who travel frequently for work and require a budget-friendly hotel. Retirees, students, tourists, and those relocating to the Cleveland area also appreciate the value of an extended-stay offering.
In Akron, the four-story, 121-room property, located at 3325 Fortuna Drive is just a short drive south of downtown Cleveland and is accessible from exit 120 off Interstate 77. In Mentor, the three-story, 119-room property, is located at 5650 Emerald Court. It is conveniently located near First Energy Stadium, home of the Cleveland Browns, and is accessible from Interstate 90 off the OH 44N/Heisley Road exit. There is abundant shopping, eating, and business adjacent to both properties.
