National Hospitality Services to manage Baymont Inn & Suites

New management, newly opened 1000 Degrees Pizza to enhance customer experience

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (February 12, 2016) — National Hospitality Services, LLC (NHS) has been selected as the new professional management company for Baymont Inn & Suites in Grand Forks, North Dakota. NHS provides human resources, sales and marketing, revenue management services, and its proprietary OnTracTM accounting system for 20 full service, extended stay and limited service hotels nationwide — including six in North Dakota.

Baymont Inn owner Chris Connelly says NHS provides outstanding customer service, backed by a strong service-based team and customer-centric systems. “We were looking for a management company with North Dakota roots. We did our due diligence and fell in love with them. They have a great philosophy, more in line with our own.

“Baymont Inn is known for hometown hospitality,” he adds. “We focus on customer service and offer premium upgrades, making us a mid-scale brand that attracts an upper mid-scale client — those who want premium amenities at a better value.” Baymont Inn provides premium triple-sheet bedding, microwave and refrigerator in every room, granite showers, sinks and vanities, and complimentary hot breakfast.

Connelly expects the now open, on-site, 1000 Degrees Pizza to further enhance the customer experience. According to owner Mark Connelly and managing partner Nadia Grosskreutz, the young, yet rapidly growing franchise serves an untapped regional market, offering authentic Neapolitan style with a fast-casual experience. Customers can make their own pizzas, choosing from more than 50 toppings, watch it fired in the revolving 1000-degree oven, and pick it up by they time they reach the register. The ovens enhance traditional hand-crafted Italian ovens with cutting-edge technology that allows them to revolve and serve many savvy pizza lovers custom orders in a few short minutes.

Baymont Inn & Suites and 1000 Degrees Pizza are located 10 minutes from Grand Forks International Airport and several area attractions, including the Japanese Gardens at Sertoma Park, Greater Grand Forks Symphony, and the Empress Arts Center. They are adjacent to the Alerus Convention Center and landmark Tim Hortons Coffee and Bake Shop.

Baymont Inn & Suites is part of the Wyndham Hotel Group. Guests have the opportunity to earn and redeem points through the Wyndham Rewards® guest loyalty program.
