We look forward to partnering with TGC Group in their future hotel developments across the country.”

The four-story, 108-room, new-build Extended Stay America Suites will have a fitness room, on-site guest laundry and a lobby with additional vending options. The rooms include kitchens with a full-size refrigerator, microwave, stovetop, cookware, utensils and dishes.

“We are extremely pleased to add our second Extended Stay America in Madison, Ala., to our portfolio of extended stay assets,” said Nick Esterline, CEO of TGC Group. “The leadership team at ESA have proven to us that their values and goals align with ours at TGC, and we look forward to continuing to grow the brand with them. With an additional Extended Stay America asset currently under construction in Asheville, N.C., and several more under development, we anticipate a long and successful relationship.”
