May 4, 2011

Magnuson Hotels, the world’s largest independent hotel group, announced today the complete rebranding of the Magnuson Hotel & Suites Bellevue, Bellevue, OH. This 75-room hotel seeks to truly upgrade its local, regional and national market position with the Magnuson Hotels brand.

Owner Mak Kingson considered switching to Magnuson Hotels even before he purchased the Bellevue property about a year ago. “Magnuson Hotels has a good brand name that is very attractive to myself and the consumer. I chose them because they allowed me more freedom to work with my customers directly versus having to go through a dictated corporate process. I’ve been very satisfied with all aspects of our business relationship. Unlike my past experiences with franchises, Magnuson Hotels has been very responsive, offers solutions in a timely manner, and understands this business, ” stated Kingson.

Corporate, educational and leisure travelers will enjoy this Magnuson Hotels affiliate located near downtown Bellevue. The Magnuson Hotel & Suites is within driving distance to Twin Lakes Golf Course, Sorrowful Mother Shrine, Cedar Point, Seneca Caverns and Historical Lyme Village. Guests will enjoy free continental breakfast each morning, free wireless Internet, an indoor pool and hot tub, fitness room, business room and meeting space.

“We are proud to announce our affiliation with the Magnuson Hotel & Suites Bellevue. Magnuson Hotels is dedicated to the success of independent hotel owners and support Mr. Kingson’s ongoing commitment to service. We look forward to working with him to increase visibility and drive more reservations to the Magnuson Hotel & Suites Bellevue,” stated Thomas R. Magnuson, CEO.

As a Magnuson Hotels affiliate, the Magnuson Hotel & Suites Bellevue will receive complete brand representation across North America and the UK, without the costs and requirements of franchise brand affiliation. In contrast to traditional hotel chains that charge a percentage of total hotel revenue, the Magnuson Hotel & Suites Bellevue will increase its net income with higher market exposure at a lower cost, as all direct revenue to the hotel is non-commissionable and royalty free. The Magnuson Hotel & Suites Bellevue is backed by the quality standards of the world’s largest independent hotel group, and the hotel will also receive a 10% brand rebate, paid every six months.
