IHG sets its sights on Austin for Atwell Suites brand

Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced that its newest brand – Atwell Suites – is coming to Austin, Texas. The Atwell Suites Austin Airport is owned and managed by Bob & Son, Ltd and is the third hotel underway for the brand, joining hotels currently under construction in Miami and Denver. There are currently more than 20 properties in IHG’s US pipeline for this design-led, dynamic, all-suites hotel brand optimized for longer stays of up to six nights.

The 80-room Atwell Suites Austin Airport property will be conveniently located near Austin Bergstrom International Airport, the new Oracle headquarters and Tesla Gigafactory facility. Additionally, guests will enjoy the hotel’s proximity to the world-renown Circuit of The Americas facility which brings fans from around the world for major events such as the Moto Grand Prix, NASCAR and Formula One Racing, as well as concerts and other events.

Karen Gilbride, Vice President, avid hotels and Atwell Suites, IHG, said:

As Austin continues to be a popular destination due to its eclectic music scene and culture, we are thrilled to partner with Bob & Son, Ltd. as we transform their existing hotel property into one of our first Atwell Suites locations. The brand’s thoughtful and flexibly designed spaces can adapt for new build or conversion opportunities making this a strong offer that will appeal to owners and guests. We congratulate Bob & Son, Ltd. and look forward to introducing guests to this new, exciting brand in Austin.
