Most hotels under the Jameson Inn badge will be rebranded under Wyndham Hotel Group and Choice Hotels International brands, according to separate statements Monday from the two hotel companies.

Forty-nine will be converted to Wyndham’s Baymont Inn & Suites, six to Wyndham’s Howard Johnson and one to Wyndham's Days Inn.

Meanwhile, 46 of the hotels will be converted to Quality Inn, Comfort Inn or Econo Lodge — all Choice Hotels brands.

Jameson Inn filed for bankruptcy in October 2011, at which time Colony Capital controlled about $40 million in debt on all but about a dozen of the Jameson Inn properties.

Santa Monica, Calif.-based Colony earlier this month assumed ownership of more than 100 Jameson Inn hotels, and announced that a rebranding of the hotels was forthcoming.

Meanwhile, owners of the dozen or so Jameson Inn properties that weren’t foreclosed upon by Colony reached franchise agreements with America’s Best Franchising.

America’s Best is looking re-establish the Jameson Inn brand in some of the same markets as the foreclosed-upon properties as well as some new markets.
