BWH Hotel Group announced the launch of HOME by BWH, a new midscale brand created to address the needs of both travelers and hotel developers in today’s hospitality landscape.

BWH Hotel Group collaborated with active extended-stay developers to create a lean prototype that offers credible return on investment. HOME by BWH is a fresh approach to extended-stay with the philosophy of “options, not mandates,” which is unique for this segment. Guests will find all their needs taken care of at HOME by BWH, while hoteliers will enjoy more flexibility.

HOME by BWH is launching with a prototype for new construction, and conversion opportunities will also be available. The brand is announced with a strong pipeline and development efforts for the brand will be focused on proven extended-stay markets where demand for new product is strong.

Every HOME by BWH property will be provided unparalleled support with the formation of a dedicated extended-stay support team. Hoteliers will also gain access to BWH Hotel Group’s website, global partnerships and sales team, and revenue management system. Hotels will also have access to a revenue manager to maximize revenue and reduce operating costs.

We know that extended-stay is an important market segment and there is tremendous demand for more options in this category, so we are extremely proud to bring a new product offering to developers and our valued guests. HOME by BWH is redefining the extended-stay segment with a new approach to the extended-stay experience.

Larry Cuculic, President and Chief Executive Officer, BWH Hotel Group

The extended-stay segment has been outperforming the industry, is driving 25% higher revenue than in 2019, and it is showing no signs of slowing down. When talking to our hoteliers about the segment and assessing what is on the market, we recognized an opportunity to change the way extended-stay is designed, both for the developer and guest. We’ve already seen a lot of excitement about HOME by BWH and I am proud to be introducing the brand with a healthy pipeline.
