About Red Roof Inn Brand Hotels

Economy hotels are aplenty in the hospitality business, but Red Roof Inn stands out from among the many options with its quality accommodations, and its experience in the industry. Red Roof Inn saw its beginning in 1973 in Columbus, Ohio. It was founded by Jim Trueman, but after his demise, his family was unable to run the company and soon saw the hotel purchased by a real estate fund company, the Morgan Stanley.

Years later, Morgan Stanley offered franchising opportunities for Red Roof Inn and the first franchise was in Branson, Missouri. Accor Company eventually purchased the Red Roof Inn from the Morgan Stanley which saw Red Roof Inn boom to expand to 37,208 rooms in 324 locations.

After the purchase, Accor was deemed to be the third largest owner of hotel chain worldwide. But in 2007, Accor sold Red Roof Inn to Westbridge Hospitality Fund LP and Global Special Situations Group for $1.3B.

Westbridge Hospitality Fund then decided to expand the chain year after year. They opened new hotels in different locations including Brazil, Thailand, Japan, and Canada. One of the brand extensions is the Red Roof Plus that was launched in 2014. It is more expensive as compared to the Red Roof Inn. The amenities were improved such as enhanced LED lighting, outside signage, and new room type.

Another midscale hotel under the umbrella of Red Roof Inn was launched in 2018 called the Red Collection. It is in Downtown Chicago and later expanded in the New York City and Illinois.

This was the worse hotel...

Pros: The only thing that I can say that I liked was that the man at the front at least walked me to my room to open the broken door that was stuck that I couldn't open after six tries
Cons: The room and hallway was disgusting!!!!!!! I had to go and buy cleaning products to clean the room and linen. The bed was very uncomfortable and lumpy. The floors in the bathroom looked like they had never been mopped Ever!!!!. The linen was obviously dirty from other guests. There were stains all over them. The blankets had Not been washed at all!!!! I asked to have the handicap room as I had paid for online and needed the accessibility, but they Never gave me one. Each day I asked, they said that it was not available! Then one of the ladies at the front told me, "you wouldn't be able to afford a king handicap room anyway." I told her that "I paid for a king handicap room already, what are talking about?" She said, "regardless, we don't have any available for you." Then she moved away from me to talk to someone else. I would not even recommend homeless people to stay here if that was the only place available to stay anywhere!!! That's how I really feel!!!
