It’s no wonder a recently released J.D. Power & Associates survey of hotel guests gave high marks to Red Roof for guest satisfaction, ranking the economy brand second overall in the economy lodging segment. Red Roof’s high ranking demonstrates once again that at a time when companies – in all sectors - are curtailing costs, Red Roof is investing in its customers and increasing customer loyalty. Red Roof currently has 50 hotels in the pipeline; approximately 17 of these properties will be new construction of the NextGen Prototype and all of these inns will feature the NextGen interior room design.

The newly constructed 94-room property in Beaumont features Red Roof’s NextGen new room design which includes sumptuous bathrooms with granite countertops, vessel sinks and spa-inspired rain-flow showers. The Beaumont inn will also have wireless internet and flat-screen TVs, in each room, that will be outfitted with auto sensing remote jack packs (RJPs) that allows guests to connect, hear and see their electronic devices on their in-room TV display, as well as, spacious workspaces with ergonomic seating, Love-your-Linens™ plush bedding and Smart-by-Design® amenities. Additional features at this location include an outdoor pool, meeting room, fitness center, complimentary gourmet coffee and USA Today in the lobby, voicemail and cable TV with over 60 channels (including HBO).

“We are proud to be the first property to feature Red Roof’s new NextGen prototype design,” says Bill Sisson, owner of the Beaumont property. “We feel that guests will be impressed with the combination of modern luxury at a budget conscious price. The NextGen design is the new frontier for Red Roof, one we strongly believe in and know will be successful.”

Minimalist. Simple. Modern. Authentic: Red Roof, long a stalwart of the economy traveler, has recommitted itself to serving today's demanding consumer with upgraded rooms that are sure to please even the most discriminating traveler.

"Red Roof is always looking forward.
