Extended stay hotels satisfy an array of customer needs from across the lodging spectrum. And the guests seeking such accommodations range from the businessperson traveling for work, spending days, weeks or even months on the road; the retirees, often snowbirds, who recently sold their home but want to be close to loved ones; and families, displaced by a storm or fire, in need of shelter.
No matter the reason for the extended hotel stay, all guests desire the same thing—a home-away-from-home that is comfortable and convenient, with a touch of elegance and a measure of helpful amenities.
What Is Extended Stay?
Extended stay is defined by the industry as any hotel visit for 30 days or more. It is a growing segment of the hotel industry, up 5.4 percent in 2016 compared to 2015, according to a 2017 U.S. Extended Stay Lodging Market report.
That is rather impressive, especially with the emergence of new accommodations, such as Airbnb. The fact that occupancy remains steady shows customers still prefer to enjoy the benefits inherent in a hotel stay.
What Are the Benefits of an Extended Hotel Stay?
Extended-stay hotel rooms are comfortably furnished, and often include a kitchen or at least a kitchenette. The main bedroom often connects to a small sitting area via a modest lobby, with a study table, couch, and other elements that make the room feel more homey than the typical hotel room.
Guests also have access to all of the 24/7 amenities associated with a hotel. This means fitness centers, pools, hot tubs, five-star dining, and simpler benefits, like lobby access, vending machines, and plenty of free parking.
Some hotels even offer extended-stay rates that could be less expensive (per night) the longer a guest stays. This is information you can request when comparing rates at different hotels.
All in all, complimentary services, along with comfort level and affordability, are often the determining factors when guests decide which hotel best suits their needs.
Safe At Home
No matter the reason for your extended stay, you deserve comfort and hospitality delivered by a professional, courteous, and attentive staff. After all, this will be your home for a short period, so it might as well feel like it.
