Redefining Luxury

Palace Inn opened its first independent hotel in Houston, Texas as a luxurious option setting it apart from the existing budget hotels in the region. Since its initial launch in 1996, Palace Inn has continuously evolved by redefining the boundaries of design, style, and service in the economy hotel market.

Our brand offers new and unique ways to give guests everything they need at an affordable price. At Palace Inn, affordability does not mean sacrificing style or comfort. Our design incorporates comfortable rooms, with premium amenities at a cost to build that hotel developers will find easy to digest and more likely to qualify for SBA lending. Our site plans include spacious on-site managers’ apartments, allowing for greater operational efficiency.

Palace Inn Blue, a new prototype introduced in 2006, is designed for guests seeking greater value and an enhanced experience with a fresh, modern design, while maintaining the efficiency of a midscale hotel.

Palace Inn appeals to developers seeking an affordable hotel investment without royalty based franchise fees and overbearing corporate oversight. At Palace Inn, franchise fees are charged on a flat rate basis which provides you the benefit of knowing your annual fees upfront. Our business model allows you to reinvest in your people and your property.

Redefining Community

Palace Inn was founded on the core values of treating our employees like family and giving back to the community. Our 20 years of experience has shown that compensating our employees with a living wage, rather than just the minimum wage, helps contribute to long term business success. We also strongly believe that our members should share our commitment to give back to the local and cultural communities in which we do business. In keeping with these beliefs, Palace Inn is committed to the following causes:

  • education for low-income and underserved children in major U.S. cities;
  • domestic hunger relief;
  • access to women’s health care and family planning;
  • access to equal justice for minorities;
  • disaster relief for our local regions;
  • healthcare and education in third world countries.

In 2016 alone, Palace Inn partnered with its members to donate over $100,000 to organizations that support these important causes. We welcome developers and franchisees who are aligned with our beliefs and commitment to family, community and fair practices.

Proven History

Palace Inn started with just one property in 1996 and over the last 22 years has grown to over 35 properties carrying the iconic Red or Blue Palace Inn flag.  That success doesn’t come from luck but from hard work, high standards for service, and a quality product offering.

Low Cost of Investment

Although our standards are high, once an approved franchisee, our process for acquisition and development yields the highest return on investment. This process has been honed over the past 22 years of developing dozens of successful Palace Inn and Palace Inn Blue hotels.
