stayAPT Suites rolls out four storey prototype across the US
US-based long-term lodging brand, stayAPT Suites, has created a new four-storey prototype design for its aparthotels.
Designed to satisfy elevated demand and penetrate higher barrier-to-entry markets, the 103-unit prototype will be first introduced at corporate and franchise markets in North Carolina and California.
Each stayAPT Suites room includes an open-concept living room with a sleeper sofa, lounge chair, and a wall-mounted smart 55-inch television. The kitchen features a full-size stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator; and between the kitchen and living room, guests can utilise the centre island.
The private, separate bedroom, located down the hall from the living area, offers a king or two queen-sized beds, a walk-in closet, a spacious desk, and a second large, wall-mounted smart television.
The hotel also offers amenities catering to travellers navigating the post-covid travel landscape. Each room features its own climate-control system, providing a quiet ambiance while minimising shared air with other hotel guests.
Windows in both the living room and bedroom offer an opportunity for fresh circulation as well as natural light. And the hotel’s optional, mobile app allows guests to bypass front desk interaction with contactless check-in and digital-key room access.
stayAPT Suites also added franchise partnerships in Atlanta-Lithia Springs, Georgia; St Louis-Bridgeton, Missouri; Phoenix-Peoria, Arizona; and Riverside-Palmdale/Lancaster, California.
These new franchises, combined with the existing corporate and franchise pipeline of open, under construction, and pre-development projects, expands stayAPT Suites’ reach to over 75 locations across 22 US states from North Carolina to California. This includes stayAPT Suites Bloomington, bringing 70 keys to Illinois in 2025.
Gary A. DeLapp, stayAPT Suites’ president and CEO, said: “It’s a thrill to partner with our franchisees on the roll-out of this new four-storey prototype, and expand our geographic footprint in the process, including our first hotel in California.
“These new deals signal continued confidence from a growing number of our partners who recognise the unique value stayAPT Suites brings to the long-term lodging segment. We are looking forward to working with them as we take this brand coast to coast.”
