Vantage Hospitality Group is the 12th largest Hotel and Hospitality Company in the world.[1] Their brands include Best Value Inn and Lexington by Vantage.

History[edit]

An America's Best Value Inn in Flint, Michigan

Best Value Inn chain was founded in 1999[2] and had expanded to over 1000 US properties by 2006.[3][4]

America's Best Value Inn received a Hotel Vikas diamond award in 2010 in the Best Hotel Franchisor category.[5] Hotel Vikas is a trade publication targeted to hotel CEOs.

In 2005, Vantage introduced the Lexington by Vantage brand.[6]

In 2014, Vantage acquired Americas Best Franchising and its brands: America's Best Inns & Suites, Country Hearth Inns & Suites, Jameson Inn, Signature Inn, and 3 Palms Hotels and Resorts. [7] As part of the acquisition, Vantage plans to re-start the Signature Inn chain, which is currently inactive.[8]
