Staybridge Suites Opens in Dallas

Staybridge Suites Hotels opened the doors of its newest all-suite hotel in Dallas, Texas, which is the 52nd addition to the brand’s growing portfolio of extended-stay hotels.
The new Staybridge Suites hotel in Dallas is owned by FelCor Lodging Trust, an Irving-based hotel real estate investment trust, and managed by Six Continents Hotels, Inc. It is the first Staybridge Suites hotel in FelCor’s portfolio of 169 hotels. FelCor owns 77 Six Continents Hotels`-branded properties.
“The addition of this newest Dallas property will make two Staybridge Suites properties in the Dallas area,” said Anhut. “With proven owners such as FelCor responding to Staybridge Suites by Holiday Inn it is no wonder that the brand continues at an accelerated pace of growth with 52 hotels open and more than 50 in development,” he added.
The 114-suite hotel is located adjacent to the Crowne Plaza Suites hotel at the intersection of I-635 and US-75, just 18 miles from downtown Dallas. The all-suite hotel is only a short distance from area businesses and corporations such as Nortel, Texas Instruments and Lucent Technologies. Other key attractions include the American Airlines Center, Southfork Ranch, Texas Stadium and area shopping malls.
“The hotel is testament to FelCor’s proven strategy to renovate and reposition its hotels to improve their competitive positioning,” said Thomas J. Corcoran, Jr., FelCor’s President and CEO. “We are confident that our brand manager, Six Continent’s Hotels, will focus on maximizing the hotel’s revenues as well as capture significant market share with the hotel’s ideal location inside Dallas’ telecom corridor.”
