Garner To Be a Midscale Brand
IHG’s upcoming Garner brand will strive to offer guests a comfortable stay at an affordable price with offerings such as a complimentary hot breakfast. The brand promises to be found in convenient locations and to be ideal for anyone who desires a “reliable and relaxed experience,” according to a press release.
Each property will feature IHG Digital Check-in to make check-in faster. Lobbies will feature flavor-infused water, coffee, and snacks available throughout the day.
IHG says that no 2 Garner hotels will be the same — but guests should expect the same overall quality of services and products from each property.
The first Garner hotel is expected to be open by the end of 2023 with plans for over 500 hotels to open over the next 10 years in the U.S.
