Motel 6 sets milestone with 1,300 locations

Aggressive growth continues as iconic brand unveils newly renovated properties across U.S. and Canada.

DALLAS – G6 Hospitality, known for its iconic economy lodging brands, Motel 6 and Studio 6 in the U.S. and Canada, announced the opening of its 1,300th location in Bakersfield, CA. The 1,300th Motel 6 is managed by Harshad D. Patel, operating under the entity Chandni Corporation, Inc. Mr. Patel has been an operator of the iconic brand since 1997 and operates an additional 24 existing properties, which are located throughout the states of California, Georgia, New Mexico and Texas.

“G6 Hospitality is very excited to celebrate our 1,300th opening alongside our long-term partner and friend Harshad D. Patel. We are thrilled to see this relationship grow stronger and more successful through the decades, and we are looking forward to a solid and successful closing in 2015,” said Dean Savas, Executive Vice President of Franchise and International Development, G6 Hospitality.

The Motel 6 Bakersfield consists of 71 rooms featuring the brand’s award-winning “Phoenix” design, which incorporates sleek wood-effect flooring, flat-screen televisions, pedestal beds, granite bathroom countertops and a bold color scheme. To celebrate the grand opening of this location, G6 Hospitality executives, property management and staff hosted a celebratory event where attendees had the opportunity to meet the owner, Harshad D. Patel, General Manager Nick Patel, as well as G6 Hospitality executives and employees.

G6Hospitality, which oversees the Studio 6 and Motel 6 brands, was acquired by Blackstone Group in October 2012. Since then, Blackstone has invested nearly a half-billion dollars in the Motel 6 and Studio 6 brands. By the end of 2015, the business estimates it will open an additional 200 new properties while renovating its portfolio of corporate assets. The renovated properties feature an all-new, modern room design that is not only more aesthetic, but also more functional and energy efficient. It is a new standard that is raising the bar for the economy lodging segment.
