VANCOUVER — American Hotel Income Properties REIT LP (AHIP) has completed its previously announced conversion of 46 hotels — including all hotels in its Rail Hotel portfolio — to Wyndham hotel brands.
In total, 28 hotels have converted to Travelodge hotels, 15 hotels have become Baymont Inn & Suites, two properties are now Super 8 hotels and one hotel will remain a Days Inn. Each of these hotels can be booked through Wyndham’s worldwide reservation network and all converted hotels now provide the hospitality and guest experience expected from Wyndham brands, including earning and redeeming Wyndham Rewards points.
“This is a pivotal strategy for our Rail Hotel portfolio, as the enhanced brand awareness and greater market appeal of these properties will allow us to more effectively fill guestrooms not already utilized under our rail crew contracts,” says Ian McAuley, president, AHIP. “We believe this increased productive capacity will drive incremental revenue and earnings accretion and enhance the margin profile of this portfolio of hotels.”
