The nation’s most innovative flexible lodging brand
WaterWalk was founded in 2014 by the late Jack DeBoer, a hospitality visionary recognized as the pioneer of the extended-stay and all-suite hotel concepts.
The WaterWalk legacy
WaterWalk was launched by the late Jack DeBoer, a pioneer of the extended-stay concept and founder of distinguished all-suite hotel brands such as Residence Inn, Summerfield Suites, Candlewood Suites, and Value Place. As DeBoer’s fifth national brand, WaterWalk is now the leading innovator and provider of flexible long-term lodging, and a company that leverages its team’s extensive prior experience across various lodging sectors to create the nation’s first corporate housing franchise system. WaterWalk is disrupting the hospitality industry by offering guests a genuine power of choice—whether that be a longer stay in fully furnished suites or a shorter stay in an unfurnished suite that allows for a more traditional rental experience, without the traditional hassles.
