Welcome to Red Roof® & Red Roof PLUS+®
We opened the first Red Roof in Columbus, Ohio, in 1973. The goal then was the same as it is now: Provide travelers with simplicity and economy without compromising quality.
Red Roof now has over 500 properties across the United States, including over 50 Red Roof PLUS+® locations and growing, and more than a dozen additional PLUS+ properties planned by the end of 2017. We’re growing internationally, too, with three locations in Brazil, two in Japan, and more planned in Thailand and Canada.
Our customers are impressed with the value and comfort of newly designed NextGen® rooms featuring flat-screen TVs, contemporary furnishings, plush new bedding, and spa-inspired bathrooms.
Red Roof introduced franchising in 1996 to accelerate the expansion of the chain. Today, while all Red Roof locations are franchised, we continue to manage almost 26% of the brand.* The result? Our owner-operator perspective guides our decision making and keeps us focused on the same goals as our franchisees.
In 2014 we introduced Red Roof PLUS+ for guests seeking more value and an enhanced experience, but engineered for economy segment efficiency.
