Staybridge Suites is an all-suite, residential-style brand of hotels within the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG). The brand targets extended-stay and corporate travelers. There are almost 200 Staybridge Suites hotels open in the United States, Britain, Canada, Mexico and Latin America. The chain competes with Residence Inn, Homewood Suites by Hilton, and Hyatt's Summerfield Suites in the upscale segment of the extended-stay lodging market. In its early days, the chain was branded as "Staybridge Suites by Holiday Inn."

Staybridge Suites hotels feature residential-style surroundings and services, including their "Great Room" lobby. Hotels in the franchise feature all apartment-style suites with kitchens. Amenities offered by Staybridge Suites include complimentary hot breakfast daily, evening receptions midweek, fitness centers and recreational activities. The chain was also one of the first in the industry to provide complimentary wireless internet access throughout the hotel.[1]
