NEWS BRIEF: New hotel with local ties to open

SLIDELL — Headquartered on US-51 in LaPlace, QHotels recently broke ground on a new Springhill Suites by Marriot hotel in Slidell. The hotel will be located in the Fremaux Towne Center and is expected to open in Fall 2020.

Established in 1997, QHotels offers hotel management services and development services. The family-owned company’s strong ties with Marriott, IHG, Hilton and Best Western help deliver strong return to each partner.

QHotels updated its LaPlace facilities in late 2018 with the unveiling of the renovated Holiday Inn Express.

QHotels President Vimal Patel said his family is excited to expand operations in Slidell.
