US-based hotel management and services company Marshall Hotels & Resorts has won five property management contracts.

The hotels are the 142-room Radisson Hotel Cleveland-Gateway in Ohio; the 80-room Holiday Inn Express Braselton, the 139-room Hampton Inn Atlanta/Marietta and the 66-room Hampton Inn Cartersville, both in Georgia; and the 113-room Hampton Inn & Suites under construction in Ocean City, Maryland.

Marshall Hotels & Resorts president and CEO Mike Marshall said that the majority of investors and owners held back from making changes at the property level during the summer months to determine the effects of the economy on business and leisure travel.

"Now it appears that owners and investors are tired of waiting for the economy to dictate what changes they make at their hotels," he said. "Money has become more readily available for decision-makers to move forward with previously postponed changes."

Holiday Inn Express Braselton features a complimentary hot breakfast service and high-speed wireless internet access, while Hampton Inn Atlanta/Marietta offers a fitness centre and the Clean and Fresh Hampton Bed.

Both hotels have swimming pools and business centres.

The features offered by Radisson Hotel Cleveland-Gateway include the Sleep Number bed, complimentary high-speed wireless internet access and on-site dining at The Library Grille.

In July this year, Marshall Hotels added four properties to its management portfolio – the 90-room Pocono Inne Town Magnuson Hotel in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania; the 131-room Sea Esta Motels complex in Delaware; the 88-room Four Points by Sheraton Long Island City/Queensboro Bridge in Long Island, New York; and the 60-room Econo Lodge University Arena in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The company operates three and four-star branded hotels and resorts, averaging 100-500 rooms in urban and central business districts, as well as suburban and resort locations.

Marshall Hotels has managed hotel brands including Hilton, Starwood, InterContinental Hotel Group, Hyatt, Choice and Wyndham.
