DALLAS—G6 Hospitality, known for its economy lodging brands Motel 6 and Studio 6 in the U.S. and Canada, has signed a franchise agreement with HKV Hospitality LLC to develop a new property in Austin, TX. The new-construction will have both Studio 6 and Motel 6 brand offerings in the same location, and it’s slated for completion in early 2019.
Located outside downtown Austin, the new Motel 6/Studio 6 property will consist of four floors with 98 total rooms and enhanced architecture along with a large social area. The property will offer the brand’s “Phoenix” design, which has wood-effect flooring, flat-screen televisions, pedestal beds, granite bathroom countertops and a bold color scheme.
Additionally, the dual-brand’s first new-construction property will offer a fully equipped kitchen with a microwave, refrigerator, and cookware, as well as guest laundry, expanded cable, WiFi and parking.
“As the hotel landscape continues to diversify and evolve, we are constantly pursuing creative ways to provide our guests with trusted economy lodging options that cater to their unique lifestyle needs,” said Rob Palleschi, chief development officer, G6 Hospitality. “We are confident that the decision to offer the best of our Motel 6 and Studio 6 offerings in one location will further drive the G6 Hospitality brand in a positive direction toward significant product growth, both domestically and internationally.”
The new Motel 6/Studio 6 property is owned by franchisee Vijay Patel, president and CEO of Lakeway Hospitality LP.
