US midscale hotel giant says planning Gulf expansion

US midscale hotel giant says planning Gulf expansion

AmericInn, the largest midscale hotel brand in the central United States, has announced plans for at least 20 new hotels to be opened across the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent over the next five years.

Partnering with Singapore- and Dubai-based Eaglewing Estates and Hotels Ltd, the expansion will bring an upscale, value-based hotel brand into key international markets including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Doha, Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore.

"AmericInn was built upon the values that make America itself so great - hard work, honesty, and the bonds of family and friendship," said Paul Kirwin, president and CEO of Northcott Hospitality and AmericInn.

"In 2016, we look forward to bringing our brand and its values to the exciting, high growth markets of the Middle East and India, along with the comfort, warmth and relaxation found in every AmericInn."

AmericInn's new upper mid-scale hotels in the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent will target domestic and international business and leisure travelers with short and extended stay accommodations.

The hotels will deliver the brand's signature amenities and services, including the AmericInn Perk breakfast, 24-hour coffee bar, Serta Perfect Sleeper beds, relaxing pools, workout rooms, and business centres.

AmericInn is launching its international growth strategy in the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent to leverage the strong demographic and travel trends in the region, it said in a statement.

Its partner Eaglewing is run by founders Dinky Puri and Rahul Raghuwanshi.

"With the continuing demand for mid-market hotels occurring across the Middle East and Asia, we are eager to work with AmericInn's unique design philosophy which provides both a great experience for the consumer and tremendous investment returns for the hotel asset owner," said Puri.
