The former Keller Inn & Suites, located at 1103 Avenue of Mid America in Effingham, IL, is now a Lexington Inn & Suites, part of Vantage Hospitality Group, the 8th largest hotel company in the world.
“Lexington is a great brand for this property,” said David Rains, general manager of the hotel. “The corporate team is very attentive and always available. I’ve been in the hospitality industry for a while and I’ve never seen this level of interaction from another brand.”
Ideally located at the junction of I-57 and I-60, the city of Effingham bills itself as the “Crossroads of Opportunity.” The exceptional property features 91 spacious guest rooms and executive suites as well as a business center and meeting room that can accommodate small groups.
Leisure and business travelers alike enjoy the heated indoor pool, fitness center with upgraded Star Trac cardio equipment, and complimentary wireless Internet access in all guest rooms and public areas. Mornings are started right with a free daily deluxe continental breakfast including fluffy scrambled eggs, sausage patties, biscuits and gravy, French toast, and waffles.
“If the city of Effingham is a crossroad of opportunity, then this Lexington Inn and Suites is situated to prosper,” said Bill Hanley, group president of the Lexington Collection® of Inns, Hotels and Suites. “Not only are they ideally located, but they have an outstanding management team that understands how to use the Vantage resources to continually increase revenue and reservations. We’re honored to have them in the system.”
Hanley expects Lexington to add at least 15 properties in 2012. The Lexington brands currently include 25 properties either in the system or under development throughout the United States and China. For more information, please visit www.LexingtonCollection.com or call 888-316-2378.
