Birmingham, Ala. — August 4, 2011 — Centerstone Hotels and I-20 Hospitality/Raj Patel today announced that they have jointly re-branded the former 3 year old Comfort Suites Hotel in Longview, Texas.
Longview, Texas is a key business center and manufacturing hub in East Texas. The city is near the Haynesville Shale oil and natural gas exploration, retail distribution and manufacturing. Longview also has two large major regional hospitals in the city that support the area.
“This hotel is only a few years old and frankly, is exquisite inside and out. We welcome it to the ever-growing Centerstone family and are particularly pleased that this property will be professionally managed by USi Management,“ said Steve Belmonte, Owner and CEO of Centerstone Hotels.
The three story interior corridor Centerstone Suites Hotel Longview is located at 711 North Access Road, near many major international companies, such as Halliburton, Key Energy Services, Trican Well Service and LeTourneau Technologies, which provides convenient access for business travelers. The hotel is located minutes from several area attractions, including Maude Cobb Convention Center, East Texas Oil Museum and the Longview Fine Arts Museum.
In addition to the spacious guest suites, which feature 10 ft. high ceilings, the hotel offers an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, Fitness Center, Meeting and Breakfast Room, Business Center and Daily Complimentary Hot Breakfast.
“I looked at all the franchise companies out there and Centerstone’s model made the best economic sense. Plus, their support and infrastructure is impressive. I look forward to this new exciting venture of our beautiful hotel and partnership with Centerstone. We feel that this opportunity is happening at just the right time for the marketplace,” according to Raj Patel, Centerstone Suites Hotel owner.
Beginning immediately, all signature programs and services offered by Centerstone Hotels will be available to guests at the new Centerstone Suites Hotel Longview. Guests will be guaranteed a fresh and clean room with Centerstone’s Certified Clean Room program, which includes a certificate on each guestroom bed complete with the phone number of the general manager. Start Your Day With a Smile program provides guests with a joke under their door each morning and at check out all guests will receive an aventurine stone, symbolizing good luck.
USi Management (www.usimanagement.com), based in Lewisville, Texas will manage the daily operations of the Centerstone Suites Hotel Longview. “Our company is very proud to be involved with Mr. Patel and Centerstone Suites. We have a strong established presence in the East and North Texas area. Our goal is to generate excitement as the newest Centerstone property,” said Hermann Bauer, President of USi Management.
