Choice Hotels International and Paladin Equity Capital are building three Everhome Suites extended-stay hotels with nearly 350 combined rooms across the Inland Empire.

The Maryland-based hospitality chain and the San Marino-based developer have broken ground on the four-story Everhome hotels in Temecula, Ontario and San Bernardino, the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin reported.

The Everhome Suites are rising with 120 rooms at 27165 Madison Avenue in Temecula; with 113 rooms at 1820 G Street in Ontario; and with 114 rooms at 898 Harriman Place in San Bernardino.

Each Everhome Suites will come with apartment-style rooms with furnished kitchens and appliances, large bathrooms and closets and pet-friendly options.

Some hotel suites will come equipped with a standalone bedroom, as well as washers and dryers.

Each hotel will have laundry facilities, fitness centers and self-service markets for groceries and snacks.

The first Everhome Suites opened last year in Corona. Its franchise operator, Paladin Equity, is building the new hotels.

Choice Hotels has joined major hospitality firms ramping up for a consumer trend towards extended-stay hotels, which have become one of the most popular options in the sector. Hilton and Marriott International are both launching extended-stay brands next year. 

Last year, extended stays had an occupancy rate of 74.7 percent across the U.S., beating the overall hotel occupancy rate of 62.6 percent.

The segment gained steam during the pandemic when traveling nurses and doctors filled rooms for longer stays than the average traveler. More recently, vacationing families and remote workers have increasingly sought rooms better suited for a longer stay.

Choice Hotels, among the world’s largest hospitality firms, has 22 brands that include Quality Inn, Comfort Inn and Cambria Hotels. It has more than 7,500 properties with nearly 630,000 rooms in 46 countries, according to its website.

In October last year, the publicly traded firm bought Radisson Hotels Americas with nine brands and 67,000 rooms in the U.S., Canada and Latin America for $675 million.

Last month, Choice Hotels tried to buy the larger Wyndham Hotels & Resorts with an unsolicited offer of $8 billion, but was rejected by the New Jersey-based company, which owns 9,300 hotels worldwide, according to the Associated Press.
