My Place Hotels is making its impact as franchisor of an all-new build economy extended stay hotel brand. Fortunately, CEO Ryan Rivett has a product that’s connecting with both owners and hotels guests because of its no fuss, no-frills approach. Plus, Ryan comes from a long line of hoteliers whose grandfather happened to create and grow one of this country’s most well know hotel brands. Now, this third-generation hotelier is building a new level on his family history and using his lifelong industry experience to go up against the ever-growing mega hotel companies. This is the story of how he plans to do it.

First up, Craig Sullivan, founder of the CLIC conference, and the host of Check Out California, on OC Talk Radio, as well as here on the No vacancy feed. He shares what you need to know about the California hotel market. Plus, Glenn and Craig initiate a new game.
