Atlanta-based Hospitality Lodging Systems (HLS) has added two AmeriVu brand hotels to its portfolio — a 61-room former Fairfield Inn in Grand Forks, North Dakota and an 80-room former Super 8 in Aberdeen, North Carolina, about 37 miles west of Fayetteville.
There are now 23 AmeriVu properties in operation in nine states.
“In today’s uncertain economy and recovering hotel environment, hotel owners want lower costs, higher profits, and more peace of mind,” said Doug Collins, Chairman and CEO of HLS. “Our brands effectively deliver dependable results.”
The AmeriVu brand was started in 2015 by Nick Rai, CEO of Vishav Hotels, who signed a long-term exclusive licensing agreement with HLS in 2016.
According to Rai, “Owners are able to grow revenue in the short-term and also build long-term asset value with our features like unlimited free online reservations, a modest $20 per room per month royalty / marketing charge, and few mandated amenities.”
In addition to its AmeriVu hotels, HLS has 36 Budgetel Inns & Suites in 10 states and China plus 12 Haven Hotel properties in nine states.
