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."

History[edit]

The first Staybridge Suites opened in Alpharetta, Georgia, U.S. in 1998. In 2004, Staybridge Suites reached 75 hotels with addition of Eatontown, New Jersey. The brand reached this size faster than its competitors.[1] In October 2015, Staybridge Suites brand announced a new Urban guest room design created for future hotel developments in urban markets. The new design addresses our owners’ need to maximize land use more efficiently in urban locations where the hotel footprint is generally smaller compared to suburban properties. It was recently used to create the framework of the guest room layout in the 111-room Staybridge Suites located in Downtown Denver, currently in development. [2]

Power and Associates 2009 Hotel Guest Satisfaction Study.[3] In July 2009, Staybridge Suites was named Best in Customer Satisfaction by Market Metrix, LLC for superiority in customer satisfaction among all upscale hotel brands during the first quarter of 2009.[4] Recently, Business Travel News rated Staybridge Suites as the top upscale extended stay brand in their 2011 U.S. Hotel Chain Survey.[5]
