IHG develops new room design for Staybridge Suites properties in urban markets

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) announced the Staybridge Suites brand’s “Urban Guest Room Design,” created specifically for future hotel developments in urban markets. The new design addresses owners’ need to maximize land use more efficiently in urban locations where the hotel footprint is generally smaller compared to suburban properties.

The "Urban Guest Room Design" was developed for both studios and one-bedroom suites. When used, the new design will provide guests apartment-style accommodations, plenty of storage and fully equipped kitchens.

To maximize the space within the suites, the elements included in the new "Urban Guest Room Design" have multiple uses. In both room types, there is a separate work and dining area. The desk is mobile, so it can be moved throughout the suite based on guests’ preference. The standard desk hutch was removed in order to take full advantage of the space and replaced with a built-in cubby and shelves mounted to the wall.
