WICHITA, KS—WoodSpring Suites has entered into a franchise agreement with NH Highway Hotel Group to develop the brand’s first location in New England, in Hooksett, NH. The 124-unit hotel is expected to open mid-2016.
“The WoodSpring Suites brand was the perfect fit for our site given its proven operating model and high consumer demand,” says Jeff Larrabee, manager of NH Highway Hotel Group. “WoodSpring Suites has been a fantastic partner so far, and we are very excited to begin construction later this summer.”
In addition to Hooksett, the hotel will meet demand from nearby Concord and Manchester. Once completed, the hotel will feature such guest amenities as in-room kitchens, free high-speed Internet, guest laundry facilities and the brand’s signature 99-point cleaning process.
“The WoodSpring Suites brand has strong appeal to developers and guests, and is a real asset to local communities,” said Bruce Haase, CEO of WoodSpring Suites. “We are excited to partner with Jeff and NH Highway Hotel Group to bring our growing brand to New Hampshire.”
WoodSpring Suites expects to break ground on 30 additional properties by the end of the year. Expansion plans through 2017 include the addition of corporate and franchised properties in major metropolitan markets such as Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle, Miami, Minneapolis and Portland, OR.
