About The La Quinta by Wyndham Franchise
In 1968, brothers Sam and Phil Barshop first established the La Quinta hotel brand. La Quinta started franchising in 2000 and was acquired by The Blackstone Group in 2005. After experiencing relative growth under Blackstone, Wyndham Hotels purchased La Quinta Corporation in 2018. Now with over 600 hotels in the U.S. and more than a dozen in other countries–most of them operated by franchisees–the hotel brand has become a staple for the middle-income traveler. For the budget-conscious, La Quinta by Wyndham offers fairly low room rates, free Wi-Fi and breakfast, pet-friendly rooms, and a swimming pool.
