ROCKVILLE, Md. — Choice Hotels International, Inc. has revealed a new prototype for the MainStay Suites brand. The new prototype — announced at the Choice Hotels Convention in Las Vegas — focuses on providing guests everything they need to feel at home all while enjoying the perks of a hotel.
“Inspired by both hotel and home design trends, our new prototype design incorporates an open-concept community room and outdoor living area, with spaces for guests to relax, socialize and work, as well as sleeker amenities, modernized décor and new appliances in all suites,” says Caragh McLaughlin, head of Brand Strategy, MainStay Suites, Choice Hotels. “The prototype was created with input from extended stay travellers and developers and builds on the success of the 57 open MainStay Suites.”
The new prototype includes updates to “The Breakfast Room”, as well as home-design updates throughout the property. Key signature brand features were also updated, including the distinctive MainStay roof line, MainStay Marketplace and guest suites.
MainStay Suites is set to unveil new on-property “Like-Home” programs to complement the new prototype, including a communal white board to inspire social engagement among guests, a lending library with frequently requested items available for guests to borrow, and food-and-beverage updates in all properties.
