La Quinta Inn & Suites in Albany, New York
|SALISBURY, Md., October 5, 2005 — Marshall Management, Inc., a leading,
mid-sized hotel management company, today announced that it has signed
a contract to manage the La Quinta Inn & Suites in Albany, New York,
scheduled to open in May of 2006. This is the seventh hotel contract
the company has signed this year.
“La Quinta is aggressively moving into the Northeast, and we believe this will be an excellent addition to their brand,” said Michael Marshall, president of Marshall Management. “The hotel’s location is in a rapidly developing sector of the city, which is expected to continue to expand.”
Located at 246 Old Loudon Road (Route Nine) in Latham, N.Y., near Interstate 87 and Latham Circle, the 76-room property is the first La Quinta Inn & Suites to be built in the Albany area. The hotel will feature an indoor swimming pool, an onsite fitness center, complimentary continental breakfast, free high-speed Internet access, microwaves, refrigerators, ceiling fans and safes large enough for a laptop in each guest room.
Marshall will oversee pre-opening operations and provide guidance and purchasing support for major equipment and operating systems, such as computer systems and laundry equipment. The property, which is owned by the Cocca family, began construction in June this year.
“As we continue to extend our brand into the Northeast, we seek proven owners and operators who can represent us well,” said Alan Tallis, president of La Quinta Franchising, LLC. “We believe Marshall Management is ideally suited to guiding our first property in Albany to its fullest potential.”
Marshall Management, founded in 1980, has special expertise in operating three- and four-star branded hotels and resorts, averaging 100 to 400 rooms, in urban and central business districts, suburban/drive-to and resort locations. In addition, the company has a proven track record managing independent resort properties.
