Competing systems tend to oversaturate their markets, which results in a brand rate cap. Hotel RL avoids the unnecessary brand requirements and PIPs that encroach on your ROIC.

Ideally suited for quality conversions or adaptive reuses, Hotel RL thrives in vibrant business districts where the brand competes with other lifestyle hotels and boutique independents.
