US Expansion Continues: My Place Hotel-Ankeny/Des Moines, IA is now open!

DES MOINES, IA – DECEMBER 28, 2017—My Place Hotels of America is thrilled to announce the opening of My Place Hotel-Ankeny/Des Moines, IA today, marking the brand’s 37th open location nationwide, and the third My Place Hotel to open in Iowa since August. The new three-story, 46-room hotel is located at 2506 SE Tones Drive, offering guests easy access to Des Moines’ commerce centers in addition to the diverse dining and retail options nearby. Following the October opening of its sister property in Altoona, Ankeny’s newest hotel will serve travelers to the metro’s northern corridor while the Altoona property focuses on a mix of business and leisure guests just East of Des Moines.

The two Des Moines area hotels are the first of 40 My Place Hotels planned by owner Matt Eller and partners, who initially announced their plan to open 40 My Place Hotels at their first groundbreaking ceremony in May. As a celebrated leader in business, Eller has effectively organized his teams at Pro Commercial and Eller Enterprises to accomplish the goal. Together the teams have opened their first two My Place Hotels this year, while their third is underway in Davenport, Iowa.

General Manager Jesse Etherington said he and his team are excited to complete construction and serve the guests they’ve been working to welcome.

“I am most excited for our guests to experience our style of service,” Etherington said. “My Place is designed to be your home away from home, and that concept doesn’t stop at the amenities. We’re a family who treats our guests like family, and we can’t wait to make people feel valued as they stay here with us.”

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!”
