Choice Hotels International is completing its move to its new global headquarters at 1 Choice Hotels Circle in Rockville, Maryland at Rockville Town Square.
The company’s more than 400 headquarter employees will begin work here on April 8, 2013.
This move is just 13 miles from the Choice Hotels current headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland.
However, it represents a sea of change for the lodging giant which franchises hotel brands that have become household names around the world, including Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality and Econo Lodge as well as newer upscale brands Cambria Suites and Ascend Hotel Collection.
That change is reflected in the new workplace which offers a layout designed to encourage collaboration and creativity.
Open work areas, high technology and connectivity, and several non-conventional meeting spaces were conceived on the fact that great ideas come from everywhere, not just behind a desk or around a table.
