ROCKVILLE, Md., June 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Sleep Inn, a proven leader in midscale, continues its significant growth with the opening of a 67-room property in Ankeny, Iowa, a rapidly developing suburb of Des Moines. The Sleep Inn & Suites Ankeny-Des Moines hotel reflects the proven prototype design introduced in 2016, which has fueled interest from developers and served as a catalyst for the brand’s expansion. The Sleep Inn brand has more than 140 properties in the pipeline with openings planned this year in popular markets, such as Denver and Fort Worth, Texas.

“The demand for the Sleep Inn brand’s simply stylish design prototype continues to increase among developers who recognize that its timeless aesthetic is more than just a savvy design—it’s a savvy investment,” said Brian Quinn, head of development, new construction brands, Choice Hotels. “We offer the lowest new construction build costs in the midscale market, without sacrificing quality, and the resources to help owners thrive.”

The property is being developed by Hart Family Hotels, which owns and operates several Choice brand properties across Iowa, including in Ames, Fort Dodge and West Des Moines.

“The Sleep Inn hotels we operate are high-performing, which is why we plan to develop several more throughout the Midwest, Denver, and Utah,” said Troy Hart, president of Hart Family Hotels. “Guests love the nature-inspired look and feel, and modern, timeless experience.”

The Sleep Inn & Suites Ankeny-Des Moines hotel, located at 2406 SE Tones Drive, is close to the Prairie Meadows Casino and Racetrack, Adventureland Amusement Park, Iowa State Fairgrounds and the Wells Fargo Arena. Nearby corporations include Monsanto, John Deere, B&G Foods, and the headquarters for Casey’s General Stores Inc.
