Phoenix, Arizona (February 25, 2020) – Best Western® Hotels & Resorts (BWHR®) announced today that the rapidly-growing SureStay Hotel Group has reached yet another milestone with over 300 active hotels worldwide. Leading the premium economy segment, SureStay Hotel Group has soared in popularity among both travelers and hotel developers.
Launched in October 2016, SureStay Hotel Group is already celebrating more than 300 properties open globally, making it one of the fastest growing brands in the hotel industry today. The brand is known as a trusted and respected lodging option among travelers, boasting average Google and TripAdvisor ratings of close to 4.0. SureStay® branded properties offer travelers consistent and quality levels of comfort, cleanliness and a service guarantee, all at an affordable price.
“BWHR has evolved into a global powerhouse, offering vibrant brands in every chain scale segment from premium economy to luxury,” said David Kong, President and Chief Executive Officer of BWHR. “SureStay Hotel Group is the latest example of how our iconic brand is on the forefront of delivering innovative travel solutions to guests and developers alike.

SureStay has solidified BWHR as a global leader in the premium economy segment, and we look forward to its continued growth and success.”
The brand has also garnered significant interest among developers in the premium economy segment because of its remarkable performance. SureStay Hotel Group has achieved an average RevPAR of $40.44 at 107.2% share, and an average ADR of $79.20 at 123% share, as reported against the economy segment in North America for fiscal year 2019. This impressive performance, coupled with a competitive fee structure and access to BWHR’s powerhouse brand, has made SureStay the go-to premium economy brand for hoteliers.
