A Columbus-based hotel company plans to move its headquarters to New Albany.

Red Roof Inn will move into a 43,000-square-foot facility at 7815 Walton Parkway in the Water's Edge III complex, according to a March 14 press release.

A group of 150 corporate-office employees will work at the facility.

Red Roof will move to New Albany in May, said Rochelle Young of Hinson Ltd., the public-relations firm that represents Red Roof.

Young said the new space would allow Red Roof to expand to up to 185 employees.

Red Roof currently is based on South Front Street in Columbus' Brewery District.
