In 1994, Red Roof was bought by The Morgan Stanley Real Estate Fund from the Truemans. With their first franchised store in Branson, Missouri, they started franchising the business in 1997. French hospitality management company Accor acquired the business from the Morgan Stanley Real Estate Fund in 1999. The Red Roof Inn has 324 sites and 37,208 rooms at the time of the acquisition.

For $1.115 billion, Accor, a company that controlled several hotel brands, including Motel 6, bought the Red Roof Inn. The acquisition made Accor the third-largest chain of guestrooms globally at the time.

Red Roof Inns were sold by Accor for $1.3 billion to Citigroup Global Special Situations Group and Westbridge Hospitality Fund LP in April 2007. Some sites were changed over to Motel 6, Accor’s other North American brand, as part of the deal. After the sale was completed, Accor intended to concentrate all of its efforts on the Motel 6 brand in the North American lodging sector. The franchise unit was transferred to a different business company, Red Roof franchise, LLC, following the sale to Accor.

Work of Hotels

The main function of hotels is to give travellers a place to stay, food to eat, refreshment to drink, and other such services and goods. They do this by commercially providing items that are often furnished in homes but not available to those travelling away from home.

Red Roof Inn Suicide Suite

The typical place to stay while having fun on vacation is a hotel. But they might also be the places where people pass away. It’s much more common than you’d expect for someone to pass away while staying in a hotel room, whether they do so by suicide, murder, or natural causes. Most hotels avoid discussing fatalities that have occurred on their grounds in order to preserve their reputation, but that has not been the case of Red Roof Inn.

The charge for its newly created suite which allows people to commit suicide is $39.99 for a guest in a room.  In a video, Marcia Connelly, hospitality director at Red Roof Inn, gave details of how the suite operates. The suite has a hanging rope, different types of knives, poisonous chemicals, and a 9mm pistol loaded with bullets which will help in committing the suicide which they termed as “perfect death.”
