“Super 8’s success can be attributed to its winning combination of quality and value, which has been embraced by hotel developers as well as travelers around the world,” said John Valletta, president of the Super 8 brand.

In addition to its expansion in China, the brand announced a deal in March that will bring a minimum of 10 Super 8 hotels to Poland over the next five years. The deal marks the entrance of the Super 8 brand into Europe.
