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 two-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-bedroom suites with separate bedrooms and living/dining rooms with fully-equipped kitchens, including a full-size refrigerator, sink,
dishwasher, microwave and stovetop. Kitchens are usually equipped with ovens also.
For past rates, see our December 2005 2-BR Rate Survey
For smaller suites, please see our One-Bedroom Rate
Survey. Comparing the 2-bedroom suite rates with the 1-bedroom rates (at the same hotel), we found significant variation between moderate and luxury brands,
with an average difference of only $16.37 at TownePlace Suites, and a $68.36 price difference at Homewood Suites. However, unlike TownePlace Suites, suites at the
upscale chains include 2 bathrooms, so a single 2-bedroom suite nearly matches the amenities of two separate 1-bedroom suites, and usually at a much lower cost.
Note: Calculations are limited to properties with availability in both surveys.
|Average Difference Between One-Bedroom & Two-Bedroom Rates|
In all, we checked rates for 863 properties in 357 US market
areas. In some 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.
