Choice Hotels Emergency / Financial Franchisee Assistance –

The Covid virus has affected almost every aspect of the hotel industry and related businesses, and shows no signs of letting up in the coming winter months based on current activity and prognoses.

If you are in need of financial relief or fee relief assistance in the face of pending tax bills and heavily curtailed revenue, please connect with Matt Martin of Choice Hotels, who is managing inquiries for all Econo Lodge and Rodeway Inn hotels. You can reach Matt via e-mail at Please let us at ELFA know if you have connected. We are eager to assess the effectiveness of this support for members and are happy to assist in any capacity.
