INDUS HOSPITALITY GROUP in Rochester, New York, has opened a new Microtel Hotel by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts in Warsaw, New York. The company, led by Jett Mehta, also broke ground on another Microtel in Farmington, New York.
The 67-room hotel in Warsaw opened July 21 near Letchworth State Park. It features a meeting room, a fitness center and outside firepit. Rooms are singles, doubles and suites.
Mehta and Tammy Murphy, Indus vice president, broke ground on the 60-room Farmington Microtel on July 24. Nearby attractions will include New York state’s Finger Lakes region. Amenities will include meeting rooms, a fitness center and business center.
“We look forward to welcoming travelers to the area’s newest hotel, scheduled to open in June 2021,” Murphy said.
Indus, which owns and operates more than 60 hotels, also recently completed a Best Western in Brockport, New York, and has plans to break ground on a 125-room Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton as part of The Strong’s Neighborhood of Play expansion in downtown Rochester.
“We are thrilled to partner with Indus Hospitality Group once again to open their 10th Microtel by Wyndham hotel,” said Keri Putera, brand leader and vice president of brand operations for Microtel. “This milestone is a testament to the Indus team and the Microtel brand’s lasting model of brilliant efficiency built for the modern traveler.”
Wyndham introduced its new “Moda” prototype for Microtel last year. Moda is designed to be lean and mean with an emphasis on efficiency and cost reduction, Putera said at the unveiling. The company opened the first Moda Microtel on July 14 in George, Washington.
Last August, Developer Pinu “Pete” Patel of Patel Construction, LLC, agreed to build five of the economy brand hotels in Florida, Louisiana and Texas while Richmond, Virginia-based KM Hotels under the leadership of Mayur Patel, president and COO, announced plans to build two.
