January 27, 2014

Magnuson Hotels, the world’s largest independent hotel group, announced today a year-over-year (2013/2012) brand growth of 25% for its three non-franchise hotel brands.

The three brands; Magnuson Grand Hotels, Magnuson Hotels and M Star Hotels now encompass 30 US states, 2 Canadian provinces with 148 hotels.

Magnuson reports 20013/12 occupancy growth of 22%, Same-Store RevPAR growth of 19%, and an increase in www.magnusonhotels.com bookings to more than 18% of total bookings.

Parent company Magnuson Worldwide credits the rapid addition of new hotels to expanded consumer brand recognition and increased booking volumes from its proprietary worldwide reservation system and free global distribution platform Global Hotel Exchange.
