WATERTOWN, S.D. (September 24, 2019) After much anticipation, today marks the opening of America’s 50th My Place Hotel in Watertown, South Dakota! It is an exciting milestone for the brand after five years of franchising. The opening of Watertown’s newest hotel also marks the sixth My Place Hotel to open in the Mount Rushmore State. The opening of the four-story, 63-unit hotel comes during one of the most pivotal periods of growth since launching the brand’s franchise system in 2014.
My Place Watertown is located just a stone’s throw away from bustling I-29 off of Exit 177 at 3409 8th Ave. SE, an opportune location for travelers commuting between Sioux Falls and Fargo, N.D. to have a quality place to stay. The hotel’s prime location offers guests close access to many area attractions that have helped identify Watertown as a destination for a unique mix of travelers. Nearby attractions include the Redlin Art Center, Bramble Park Zoo, and Lake Kampeska. Beyond its positioning in respect to local attractions, My Place Watertown is located in close proximity to a wide variety of dining and retail options and is prepared to accommodate for the varying needs of guests.
Watertown’s newest hotel is locally owned by Watertown Hotel LLC., and operated by Venerts Hotel Management, Inc. Venerts Director of Operations Connie Ward believes the opening of Watertown’s newest hotel comes at the perfect time amidst a shortage of rooms in the area and will provide guests with an exceptional experience as they take in the brand-new Gen 2 guestroom.
“We are super excited to be one of the first properties to open with the new Gen 2 guestroom. The redesigned elements of its design provide many improvements for the comfort of our guests,” said Venerts Director of Operations Connie Ward. “Watertown was an opportune location to open a My Place Hotel in based on the needs of the town currently. With many construction projects in progress and an aggressive CVB booking new events in town, My Place is the right product to fill a need that the area currently lacks!”
My Place EVP of Franchise Sales Terry Kline is delighted to celebrate the opening of the brand’s 50th location in its home state of South Dakota.
“Everything seems to be coming full-circle for us as we welcome our newest hotel to the family in our home state of South Dakota,” said Kline. “While our momentum continues to accelerate exponentially across the country, at the core of all of our growth we’re still very proud to celebrate our South Dakota roots that got us to where we are today. With that being said, it is with great pleasure that we welcome Team Watertown to the My Place family, especially as we set our sights on the next chapter of our growth!”
