New Marketing Partners for InTown Suites

We are happy to share good news from our client InTown Suites who recently added The Weather Group’s “Local Now” and credit builder eCredable to its marketing partner roster with Showtime.

True North is continuing to seek additional partners interested in engaging (and marketing to) to the guests staying at InTown Suites. With 189 properties across 22 States, they have 24,154 guest rooms and an 86% occupancy rate – that’s 20,772 occupied suites every day. With an average of two people per suite, they host 15+ million occupied guest nights annually.

InTown Suites provides an alternative to traditional apartments and extended-stay hotels by offering fully furnished, apartment style accommodations, affordable weekly rates, and a community atmosphere. Rooms are very “homey” and locations are proximate to walkable retail. InTown Suites more closely resembles a multi-family apartment than a hotel. At hotels, guests come and go, spending just one or two nights on average. At InTown Suites, a typical guest stays months at a time with each location offering apartment-style amenities so they feel right at home.

This can be a heck of a sales opportunity/marketing platform for your organization. Much like advertising and consumer engagement platforms in malls, airports, hotels, etc. — InTown Suites can provide targeted marketing directly to their consumers (guests) via multiple modes of engagement in their lobbies and guest rooms, mobile app, wi-fi login page, website and more.

InTown Suites’ guests are diverse and stay primarily for low cost, flexible, short-term housing. However, other reasons for staying include commercial construction projects (construction workers), extended work assignments (traveling nurses, blue, white and gray collar workers), military duty, relocation, divorce or other personal situations, in between homes/apartments and low cost vacation.

The annual cost of the promotion is very affordable, ranging from $1,500-$2,500 per InTown Suites location activated!  For more detailed information, please  visit the link below:

Let me know if you would like more information about this great opportunity.
