Sleep Inn Brand Launches Bold Campaign to Fortify Midscale Dominance
ROCKVILLE, Md. - Oct. 16, 2017 // PRNewswire // - Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's largest hotel companies, is affirming its leadership in midscale with a provocative new trade marketing platform for the Sleep Inn brand that highlights the brand's timeless appeal and proven approach. The new tongue-in-cheek print and digital ads, which debuted across several lodging industry trade publications, remind developers of what really matters: a strong, long-term return on investment.
"Our 'Always Sleep Inn Style' ads illustrate how trends that appeal to consumers today may not appeal to consumers tomorrow. Travelers evolve, and developers should invest in brands that withstand the test of time," said Anne Smith, vice president, brand management and design, Choice Hotels. "Simply put, no matter what seems flashy today, we remain the best choice for developers seeking new construction in midscale."
Sleep Inn hotels are the lowest cost way to build new construction in midscale - a segment with strong consumer demand - thanks to its efficient footprint and smart design. And with Sleep Inn hotels, owners and guests don't have to sacrifice function or style. The evolved prototype, introduced in 2016, offers modern, enduring innovations that appeal to guests of today and tomorrow. Developers have taken notice as the brand continues a successful expansion with a pipeline of more than 120 hotels.
The franchised hotel brand is a proven performer, outshining the competition in the midscale lodging segment, with domestic RevPAR index gains outpacing competitors in 36 out of 37 months.
"The Sleep Inn brand has been delivering results for years," said Brian Quinn, vice president, franchise development, Choice Hotels. "We've always recognized the appeal of midscale, and understand what midscale owners and guests want, with the high guest satisfaction scores to back it up."
