The 63- (Bentonville) and 64- (Pooler) key hotels are part of a multi-development agreement between My Place and TGC Group, who plan to develop nine My Place hotels over the next several years. MPHOA is extremely excited about TGC's part in continuing to grow the brand's footprint and can't wait to see what the future holds for this partnership.
In addition to celebrating two properties at once, it shouldn't be understated that this will be the first My Place Hotel to open in Arkansas, and will bump up My Place's presence into 30 states across the country. There are two Arkansas projects in the works, but Bentonville is slated to open its doors first in the fall of 2024. As the My Place brand continues to expand into new markets, it's reassuring to receive such warm welcomes from the communities they're entering.
"We're very excited that you chose Bentonville as your first city in the state of Arkansas," said Debbie Griffin, Director of Administration for the City of Bentonville. "Not only does it show confidence in our region and our state, it also helps drive economic development to our city, so we appreciate the investment in Bentonville, and we want to welcome you to our city!"
Two groundbreakings, a new territory, and entering My Place's 30th state — just another day at the office! 2024 is going to be a monumental year for My Place Hotels, and January couldn't have kicked it off any better!
