Microtel Inns & Suites Checks-in with Free Services

Ever wished that you could check-in to a reasonably-priced hotel room and
enjoy free local phone calls, free long distance calls to anywhere in the
continental U.S., free wireless high speed Internet access, and more?
Now, Microtel Inn & Suites—the chain of all newly-constructed, interior
corridor economy hotels—will become the first budget brand to offer
guests free local and long distance calls, and free wireless high speed
Internet access in every room in all its hotels, along with advance online
check-in and check-out. With unprecedented access to Microtel online folio
data, guests can pre-register online and head straight to their guestrooms
when they arrive, and also virtually avoid the check-out process.

The wide-sweeping program—known as “Project Reveille” and announced at
the chain’s annual franchise conference in Atlanta—will greatly extend
the scope of complimentary telecommunications services and time-saving
conveniences available to Microtel guests. The new services will be
available in all Microtels nationwide by the end of this year.

According to Mike Leven, president and CEO of Atlanta-based U.S. Franchise
Systems (USFS), franchisor of the brand, “Microtel has raised the bar on
the scope of amenities that hotels can offer guests. These services are
groundbreaking and singular to Microtel, and what has made us the leader
in the economy-budget segment.”

Microtel is one of the fastest growing hotel brands in the U.S., and for
the second consecutive year, has been ranked highest in guest satisfaction
among the economy/budget hotel chains by J.D. Power and Associates. As of
December 31, 2003, there were 266 Microtels open or under construction in
the U.S. and four other countries. All properties offer
chiropractic-approved mattresses and continental breakfast, and travelers
can also enjoy membership in MicroPass(TM), the frequent quest program
where guests can earn free stays. For reservations, contact 1-888-771-7171
