For information on features and amenities at each chain, please refer to our
Extended Stay Chain Comparison Survey. To permit a
meaningful price comparison, we recorded the best available daily rates (based on a weekly stay) for one-bedroom suites at all hotels for the same time
period - a stay from December 17 to December 24 2007. The suites in our rate survey all are
2-room suites with separate bedrooms and living/dining rooms with fully-equipped kitchens, including (at a minimum) a full-size refrigerator, sink,
microwave and stovetop.
For past rates, see our December
2005 1-BR Rate Survey
For studio rates, please see our Studio
Survey. Comparing the one-bedroom suite rates with the studio rates, we found significant variation between moderate and luxury brands, with
an average difference of $17.45 at Homestead Suites, and just a $5.79 price difference at Residence Inn. This makes the upscale chains an
excellent value in most locations for guests requiring a separate bedroom.
Note: Calculations are limited to properties with availability in both surveys.

In all, we checked rates for 999 properties in 390 US market
areas. In many areas, there is more than one hotel of a particular brand. When these hotels charge different rates, we provide a price
range. When there is no vacancy for the particular suite type, this is indicated by "nv". Clicking on the state and city links
below will access a list of all extended stay options at the location, including those that make up our survey. Detailed information and online
reservations are available.
