DALLAS, May 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — G6 Hospitality LLC today announced the opening of two new-construction, dual-branded hotels, Motel 6/Studio 6 Austin, TX-Airport and Motel 6/Studio 6 Corpus Christi S. Padre Island Drive. The openings, both in Texas, signify a growing interest for owners to provide multiple lodging experiences for guests. G6 Hospitality expects to open nearly 30 of these dual-branded properties in key markets across the U.S. and Canada by the end of 2019.
“The launch of these purpose-built, dual-brand locations underscores our commitment to providing travelers with trusted, affordable lodging in sought-after destinations like Austin and Corpus Christi,” said Rob Palleschi, CEO, G6 Hospitality. “Offering both our Motel 6 and Studio 6 brand experiences under one roof caters to our guests’ varied lifestyle and travel needs, be it leisure or business, and allows our owners the opportunity to attract two different guest segments to fill rooms.”
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport
The new Motel 6/Studio 6 hotel in Austin is conveniently located near the major artery connecting the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport to downtown, amid major office and industrial areas. The hotel is represented by Humble Origins Hospitality Management and operated by G6 Hospitality.
This four-story property features modern design throughout its 98 guest rooms – 54 in the Motel 6 brand and 44 in the Studio 6 brand. This building also offers free Wi-Fi in guest rooms and common areas, a guest laundry facility and free parking.
The development is Humble Origins Hospitality Management’s second project with G6 Hospitality. The company, which has a long history in the Austin hospitality industry, also recently purchased the Motel 6 Austin Central-North location, which is also now managed by G6 Hospitality.
“Working as a hotelier in Austin for many years, I know that affordability is a tremendous challenge for travelers to the area,” said Vijay Patel, president and CEO, Humble Origins Hospitality Management. “My goal in partnering with G6 Hospitality on this and other locations is to help make visiting Austin affordable, whether guests are looking to stay for one night or an extended period of time.”
Corpus Christi/South Padre Island
Ideally located in Corpus Christi near S. Padre Island Drive, the new dual-branded development is a three-story building featuring modern brand design touches, including sleek wood-effect flooring, brand-new flat-screen televisions,pedestal beds, granite bathroom countertops and a bold and inviting color scheme.
This location boasts 123 total guest rooms, divided almost evenly between the Motel 6 and Studio 6 design layouts. The building features an outdoor pool and a large social area for optimum guest relaxation and enjoyment. A guest laundry facility, free parking and complimentary Wi-Fi in all rooms and common areas are also available. The Studio 6 accommodations offer fully-equipped kitchens including coffee makers.
This is Corpus Christi-based ZJZ Hospitality’s first development project with G6 Hospitality and in the economy segment.
“As we looked at the long-term outlook for the Corpus Christi market, we knew the economy segment was one that we could help enhance and support,” said Deven Bhakta, president and CEO, ZJZ Hospitality. “Knowing our local community is a popular spring break destination, we worked closely with G6 Hospitality to prioritize this development and ensure we opened our doors in time to welcome guests traveling to the area with an affordable place to stay.”
