Largest Mid-Scale Hotel Brand in Mid-America Targeting 2016 Debut
AmericInn®, the largest mid-scale hotel brand in the central United States, today announced it is expanding overseas. The expansion plan calls for at least 20 new hotels to be opened across the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent over the next five years as part of a long-term commitment to growing internationally.
Partnering with Singapore- and Dubai-based, Eaglewing Estates and Hotels Pte. Ltd., the expansion will bring an upscale, value-based hotel brand into key international markets including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Doha, Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore and beyond.
“AmericInn was built upon the values that make America itself so great: hard work, honesty, and the bonds of family and friendship,” stated Mr. Paul Kirwin, President and Chief Executive Officer 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.”
Eaglewing is run by founders and principles Dinky Puri and Rahul Raghuwanshi, a duo with over 50 years of experience owning, managing, and operating hospitality and real estate businesses.
“We’re thrilled to partner with a vibrant, growing hotel brand built upon fundamental American business values like commitment, trust, and cooperation,” said Mr. Dinky Puri. “Business, leisure, and government travelers alike can expect AmericInn hotels will help them relax, refresh, and recharge while they are away from home.”
The AmericInn Hotels and Suites brand is owned by parent company, Northcott Hospitality, a multi-generational family-owned business, successful in creating, developing, and managing hotels and restaurants for over 50 years.
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 centers. The hotels will also be designed to meet the unique social and cultural expectations of travelers from the region including a full-service, all-day restaurant in many locations.
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.
“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 Mr. Puri.
“I had the pleasure of partnering with Dinky and Rahul while working in Asia previously,” notes Mr. Kirwin. “It was a wonderful experience and I look forward to working with them again to bring a powerful, exciting new hotel brand into the Middle East and Asia.”
