US Expansion Continues: My Place Hotel-Ankeny/Des Moines, IA to open by year end!

DES MOINES, IA-DECEMBER 18, 2017- August marked My Place Hotels of America’s debut in the state of Iowa. Now My Place Hotel-Ankeny/Des Moines, IA is in the final days of construction while its team prepares to welcome guests as Iowa’s third, and America’s 37th location. The newly constructed three-story, 46-room hotel is set to open within the final days of 2017 at 2506 SE Tones Drive, offering guests easy access to Des Moines’ commerce centers in addition to a plethora of diverse dining and retail options nearby.

The hotel is the second of 40 My Place Hotels planned by owner Matt Eller and partners, who first announced their plan to build 40 My Place Hotels at the Altoona My Place Hotel’s groundbreaking in May. While his team prepares to open their second Des Moines area hotel, their third location is already underway in Davenport. Based in Ames, Iowa, Eller said his group is both excited and encouraged by the concept’s reception in Altoona.

“Out of the gate, I had someone come in and book five rooms for the next three months,” Eller said. “He didn’t even know I was in the corner, listening to him just talk about why he likes My Place, why he likes the people, why it’s just so comfortable for him to walk in and have someone call him by name, and it’s all at an affordable price that he loves. That’s really exciting.”

Terry Kline, My Place EVP of Franchise Development, said the brand is thrilled to welcome Eller’s organization of expert developers, builders, and operators. While My Place continues its campaign for U.S. expansion, Kline said Eller’s team will undoubtedly connect many key markets throughout their plan to build 40 My Place Hotels in 10 years.

“We’re extremely pleased to work with Matt and the team he has assembled to execute this plan,” Kline said. “As experienced hotel operators who are as passionate about the My Place product as we are, we know this team will excel in offering the finest in friendly service and flexible lodging!”
