Dhruv Management owns and operates two Red Roof hotels in Alabama and Florida and has four more properties in various stages of development through Dhruv Development.

“We are excited to partner with Red Roof on our latest extended-stay hotels with the HomeTowne Studios in Tampa and Bradenton,” said Amit Patel. “Red Roof is not just a franchisor; they are heavily invested in any franchisee partnership from the moment they sign a deal. Their assistance has been invaluable, from securing approvals to moving dirt. Thanks to Red Roof’s continued commitment to hospitality fundamentals, we are confident in the future of this hotel.”

HomeTowne Studios Tampa will have 124 extended-stay suites, and HomeTowne Studios Bradenton will provide a 124-suite property for long-term visitors, Red Roof said in a statement. Both properties are set to open in 2024.

“The upcoming HomeTowne Studios properties in Tampa and Bradenton, Florida, are on the road to exceeding expectations across Florida,” said Matthew Hostetler, chief development officer at Red Roof. “Dhruv Management has been a leader in the Florida hospitality industry and nearby areas for nearly 20 years, and Red Roof is happy to play a continued part in their success. We remain committed to our partnership with Dhruv Management and are thrilled to take the next steps toward extending hospitality excellence to Florida travelers.”

HomeTowne Studios Tampa is situated near Tampa Airport and attractions such as Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, The Florida Aquarium, Tampa Theatre, and Tampa Riverwalk. Meanwhile, HomeTowne Studios Bradenton is located near TKTK.

In December, Red Roof unveiled Red Roof Inn in Hutchins, Texas, a 41-room hotel owned and operated by Jay Patel, introduced to Red Roof by a friend and existing franchisee.
