The AmeriVu brand continues to grow with the addition of two hotels in Wisconsin – a 50-room former Super 8 in Shawano, about 40 miles northwest of Green Bay, and a 47-room former independent in Saint Croix, about 55 miles northeast of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
“After a year of economic pain in 2020, hotel owners are ready for the return to more stable, more profitable results that our three brands deliver,” said Doug Collins, Chairman and CEO of Hospitality Lodging Systems (HLS), which offers the AmeriVu brand along with Budgetel and Haven Hotel.
“In today’s financial environment, owners are drawn to our unlimited free online reservations and our modest $20 per room per month royalty / marketing charge,” added Nick Rai, CEO of Vishav Hotels who started the AmeriVu brand in 2015 and signed a long-term exclusive licensing agreement with HLS in 2016. “Also popular is our yearly exit opportunity and that we have few mandated amenities.”
HLS now has a total of 63 hotels under its three brands – 33 Budgetel Inns & Suites; 21 AmeriVu Inns & Suites; and 9 Haven Hotel properties.
