Arlington Hospitality Inc. (
For new construction projects, the Company offers turnkey development services, having the in-house expertise to manage a project from inception through completion, including market research, site selection, architectural services, the securing of financing and construction management The Company offers complete operational and financial management services, including sales, marketing, quality control, training, purchasing and accounting. Arlington provides employee leasing services to hotels in which it has a minority ownership interest, and to hotels owned by unaffiliated third parties but managed by the Company.
All of the Company's AmeriHost Inn hotels are operated pursuant to 20-year franchise agreements with Cendant. Pursuant to these agreements, the Company has access to the reservation system, marketing plans and trademarks. The franchise agreements require the Company to maintain both the quality and condition of the hotel, as well as specific operating procedures.
The Company's AmeriHost Inn hotels have been designed and constructed using a two- or three-story prototype, featuring 60 to 120 rooms, interior corridors and an indoor pool area. The AmeriHost Inn hotel's amenities and services include an indoor pool, whirlpool, exercise room, meeting room and extensive exterior lighting for added security. The standard AmeriHost Inn guest room features an electronic card-key lock, in-room safe, in-room coffee maker, telephone with data port for personal computer, a work area and a 25" color television with premium cable service or movies on demand. In addition, each AmeriHost Inn hotel typically includes two to 12 whirlpool suites that, in addition to the standard amenities, include in-room whirlpools, microwave ovens, compact refrigerators and an expanded sitting area. AmeriHost Inn hotels do not contain food and beverage facilities normally associated with full-service hotels. Food service for hotel guests is generally available from adjacent or nearby freestanding restaurants, which are independently owned and operated.
The Company targets smaller communities in tertiary and secondary markets with established demand generators such as major traffic arteries, office complexes, industrial parks, shopping malls, colleges and universities or tourist attractions, as the principal location for the development and construction of AmeriHost Inn hotels. An AmeriHost Inn hotel is typically positioned to attract both business and leisure travelers seeking consistent amenities and quality rooms at reasonable rates, generally ranging from $50 to $80 per night.
Arlington's non-AmeriHost Inn hotels were primarily acquired by the Company through joint ventures prior to 1993. In addition, the Company acquired one other brand hotel in the fourth quarter of 2001. The other hotels have been owned, operated and managed by the Company independently, or as part of a national franchise system such as Days Inn, Howard Johnson Express, Holiday Inn, and Ramada Inn.
At December 31, 2001, the Company had franchise agreements with AmeriHost Inn Franchise Systems, Inc., Days Inn of America, Inc., Howard Johnson's Franchise Systems, Inc., Holiday Inns, Inc., Holiday Inns Franchising, Inc. and Ramada Franchise Systems, Inc.
