About Choice Hotels Int'l.

In 1939, seven motor court owners in Florida met and decided they could be more successful working together, establishing standards for service and quality and helping each other to fill their rooms through a referral system. More and more owners joined and eventually the company, then Quality Courts United, decided to begin franchising. Today the company is known as Choice Hotels International, which includes 11 hotel brands ranging from the economy to upscale segments.
