Dual-Branded Hotel Opens Near St. Louis Airport
- Jan 04, 2018
Choice Hotels International has opened a new dual-branded Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites hotel close to St. Louis’ Lambert International Airport. This marks the company’s 10th property under both flags, and another 70 similar properties are underway nationwide. The three-story hotel is owned by Sam Ursani, a local investor based in Ballwin, Mo. Construction began in the fall of 2016, and was financed by Live Oak Bank.
Located at 11225 Lone Eagle Drive in Bridgeton, on the northwest side of St. Louis, the property is some two miles from the airport via Interstate 70 and sits next door to Embassy Suites and Crowne Plaza hotels. Guest amenities include a fitness center, complimentary Wi-Fi, laundry services, a business center and free transportation to the airport. Two meeting rooms totaling 768 square feet are also available for guests.
“Choice has been a great collaborator and offers all of the resources to bring this unique concept to life. The combination of two well-established brands and the efficiency of construction and operations have contributed to our success,” said Ursani in a prepared statement.
The dual-branded hotel concept is popping up across the nation, with another asset breaking ground last summer in Charlotte, N.C.. It is expected to open under Hilton’s Tru and Hampton flags by the end of the year.
