InnPlace Hotels

A Hotel Brand Management Strategy for Hotels in Transition  

Inn Place Hotel Brand ManagementInnPlace Hotels membership has been created to meet the needs of lenders for independent hotels and hotels going through a transition.This membership-based temporary hotel brand solution enables our clients to maintain hotel operations during a brand transition, without committing to a long-term franchise. Upon notice, the brand can be operational within a week and identified on all major channels within 30 days. Fees are lower than all traditional brands because there are no marketing fees, brand reward program or national sales teams to offset.
