The AmericInn hotel chain has announced that its proprietary AmericInn SoundGuard construction is the first of its kind in the hospitality industry. AmericInn’s quiet room environment is providing the hotel chain a pioneering competitive advantage in the hospitality industry by focusing on the latest amenity that is becoming of high importance to travelers, according to a recent study by the Yesawich, Pepperdine, Brown & Russell/Yankellovich Inc., 2007 National Business Travel Monitor.
Each AmericInn hotel is built to strict standards with solid masonry block, thick drywall, and sound-deadening foam between every room—all features that go above and beyond traditional hotel construction. The result is room environments that have been scientifically proven to be significantly quieter than others in the industry, as noted in recent articles about AmericInn’s new strategy featured in the New York Times and the USA Today.
“Recent trends suggest that future success in the hospitality industry involves carving out a niche in the market,” said Jon Kennedy, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development at the AmericInn Lodging System. “We have always held ourselves to a high standard of quality construction. Now we want to go one step further to set ourselves apart as the quiet hotel chain.”
In addition to quiet rooms, AmericInn provides franchisees with a broad range of training and services ranging from support in finding and choosing a hotel location, design and construction support, ongoing management training, regional and national marketing and Internet marketing services, and a state of the art Electronic Reservation System and Internet bookings.
“We know that there are many options to choose from when you are considering investing in a franchise,” said Kennedy. “AmericInn is a brand that is dedicated to innovation and looking to the future. It is our goal to dominate the new ‘quiet’ hotel niche as we expand across the country in 2008”
