 All-Suite Hotel Chain Comparison Tables

Continuously updated
 
Send this page to a friend!

All-suite hotels differ from extended stay hotels and apartment hotels by the absence of a full kitchen. In addition, suite hotels often do not offer extended stay discounts, though this is changing. There are currently 17 chains (mostly in North America) with at least 7 hotels. Each all-suite chain is covered in our reviews.

There are important differences among suite hotel chains. They differ with respect to the Types of Rooms & room features, Services & Policies, and Amenities (including complimentary food service).

The lists below are in descending order, approximately, according to typical room rate. There is usually a high correlation between price and quality, but not always. Also, keep in mind that rates vary significantly based on location. Hotels are most expensive in the northeastern US and California, and in downtown locations of large cities.
