La Quinta Inns & Suites Introduces New Prototype

New Design Makes Bold and Inviting Statement For Today's and Tomorrow's Guest

IRVING, Texas - June 2, 2014 // PRNewswire // - La Quinta Holdings Inc. (NYSE: LQ) ("La Quinta"), owner, operator and franchisor of La Quinta Inn & Suites™ and La Quinta Inn™ branded hotels, today introduced a fresh, new prototype design called Del Sol. Inspired by extensive guest experience research, the Del Sol prototype combines iconic brand elements with elegantly clean geometric lines. Artfully blending light and shadow provides a new level of warmth that enhances the guest experience. Designed to maximize revenue-per-square foot while maintaining a competitive cost-per-key, the new prototype's operational functionality is enhanced to lower ongoing expenses for hotel owners.

The highly visible placement of the La Quinta name on the building, along with the outreaching rays of the La Quinta sun, delivers on a promise that people know and trust. Inside, natural elements and color cue the feeling of optimism that the La Quinta brand evokes. With an emphasis on space and light, the great room serves as a multifunctional area for social gatherings or as a place of relaxation and connectivity. Incorporating guest learnings, the guest room has been updated with a fresh and stylish design providing comfort, convenience and productivity. The integration of the latest technology makes the room appealing to savvy millennials, plugged-in boomers and all business and leisure travelers.

"This new Del Sol prototype is part of La Quinta's overall business strategy to innovate for the benefit of our guests and hotel owners," said Rajiv Trivedi, La Quinta's Chief Development Officer. "It is a dramatic composition of shapes, color and texture that creates a facade that is bold and inviting. The adaptable and scalable footprint optimizes the site and fully maximizes ROI potential offering a competitive advantage for hotel owners.
