extended stay hotel suite Extended-stay suite hotels generally feature spacious suites or rooms with small kitchens and space to work and relax.  They cater primarily to business travelers on work or training assignments as well as the relocation market and even vacationing families.  A suite hotel is designed to make long-term hotel living affordable and to provide home-like hotel accommodations.  Most suite hotel accommodations feature guest laundry facilities, and some feature free breakfasts and even light suppers for their visitors.

The popularity of hotel suites is growing, and now represents about 4 percent of the hotel market.  Most hotels have a percentage of suites that ranges from 2 to 5 percent of their overall lodging.  Other hotels that specialize in "extended stays" are comprised completely of suites.  The increase of hotel suites is a direct result of market demands, including:

  • Demand for more comfort and residential-like qualities as extended stays become more popular.
  • Demand for division between sleeping and living quarters, to accommodate both families and business people.

hotel room service tray Several major hotel chains, including Hilton, Marriott, Choice, and InterContinental, feature a suite hotel brand that is ideal for business travel, temporary housing or family vacation travel.  Instead of getting a basic hotel room, visitors get more spacious accommodations which can be more economical than corporate housing or extended-stay apartments.  Business people can take advantage of included work areas and business services like high-speed Internet access, as well as print, copy, and fax machines, to make their stay productive.

Families on vacation can relax comfortably and often reduce food costs by utilizing the included kitchen facilities.  Of course, the extent of the cooking facilities and available cooking utensils varies, depending on the particular hotel.
