Local inn rebranded

Published 12:36pm Friday, December 7, 2012

The Jameson Inn, located at 4335 U.S. Highway 280, was officially rebranded as a Baymont Inn and Suites Nov. 28.

“We’re going to be renovating early into this next year and just (doing) a lot of hotel improvements,” said Matthew Weber, assistant general manager.

Renovations will add suite-style rooms to the inn. Weber said they will also have higher standards for property appearance.

The inn has not changed ownership, Weber said.

According to the Baymont Inns website, the chain features more than 250 locations across the United States and Canada. Baymont is part of the Wyndham group, which also includes Days Inn, Super 8, Howard Johnson, Travelodge, Knights Inn, Night Hotels, Ramada and Dream Hotels, among other hotels and resorts.

The rebranding and coming under Wyndham Group also offers another advantage, Weber said.

“We’re also now offering a rewards program,” Weber said. “I think that’s probably the most exciting (change).”
