April 28, 2015 // Franchising.com // Austin, Tex. and MCLEAN, Va. – Home2 Suites by Hilton has reached a significant milestone, opening its 50th hotel - less than five years after welcoming its first guests - with the debut of Home2 Suites by Hilton Austin North/Near the Domain. Home2 Suites by Hilton, an award-winning mid-tier, all-suite hotel brand designed for modern business travelers and extended stay guests, is one of the fastest growing brands in the history of Hilton Worldwide.
Home2 Suites has shown momentous growth since opening its first hotel in 2011. In the last year alone, it grew its rooms’ pipeline by 67 percent and now has nearly 200 hotels in its property pipeline and another 30 locations scheduled to open by the close of 2015.
Home2 Suites’ portfolio expansion into Austin, which brings 135 new hotel rooms to the state of Texas, comes on the heels of a major spike in demand for the extended-stay hotel product. According to the Highland Group’s Report on the US Extended Stay Lodging Market, occupancy rates for the segment are at their highest levels in 13 years.
“Home2 Suites’ instant popularity is an incredible story, and the demand demonstrates how well it has been received by both business and leisure travelers,” said Bill Duncan, global head for Homewood Suites by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton. “As developers continue to seek new prototypes that stress efficiency, both in design and ongoing operational costs, I expect the Home2 Suites brand will continue to thrive.”
Owned by Esperanza Hospitality, LLC, Home2 Suites Austin North/Near the Domain is part of a continued trend of Home2 Suites expanding throughout the area, as the brand is expected to more than double its number of properties in Texas by the end of 2015.
“The flexible and innovative building models paired with the value-added amenities that the Home2 Suites brand offers are proof points for why this brand has achieved this important milestone so quickly, and why we chose to bring this brand to the Austin area,” said David Bohac, general manager, Home2 Suites Austin North/Near the Domain.
Located at 2800 Esperanza Crossing, Home2 Suites Austin North/Near the Domain offers guests convenient access to the Domain, also known as the Austin’s second downtown, and the high tech headquarters. The property is located just 15 minutes from the live music capital of the world and downtown Austin, where guests can experience the finest shopping, dining and entertainment the city has to offer.
