MOUNT PLEASANT, WI – With Foxconn right around the corner, My Place Hotels of America, 13320 Globe Dr, is helping Racine County prepare for the huge influx of people. With 64 units capable of holding four adults each, they’re prepared to house an entire community.

My Place Hotels of America has carried a vision since its founding in 2012 that a hotel stay should truly offer all the comforts of home – not just a continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi, but breakfast in bed and wired connections.

The hotel opened on June 24 and they held their grand opening on Tuesday.

Ryan Rivett, chief executive officer of My Place Hotels of America, said the hotel chain caters to people who end up staying for longer than a few days or weeks. Some people stay for a year or even longer than that. They designed each and every inch of the hotel with this in mind, according to www.myplace.com.

The Mount Pleasant location offers two styles of rooms, two queen beds or a single bed with a recliner. The rooms also feature a ton of amenities. The beds themselves are plush with microfiber sheets and duvets.

Each room comes complete with high-speed Wi-Fi and wired internet access for free. They’ve done this with the motive that some folks aren’t allowed to use Wi-Fi for their jobs, such as government officials, and must be wired in. They’ve spared no expense making sure their internet can crank out insane speeds, which is something that most hotels don’t take the time to do. Gamers and business professionals will find this to be a refreshing take on an extended hotel stay. 24-hour laundry is available on site, as well as free parking and even a store.

The rooms also have a “My Kitchen” in every room. Like most hotels, this comes with a microwave, coffee machine with coffee and fridge/freezer. But that’s where the similarity stops, as My Place includes a two-burner cooktop, a kitchen sink with disposer and even a toaster. They have really made sure a person has everything they need to feel like it is truly, “My Place.”

The My Store is stocked with food and drinks, but also cookware and utensils. And it’s open around the clock so that you won’t have to make a 3 a.m. snack run while on the road.
