Staybridge Suites Hotels announced today that it has broken ground on three new hotels in New Jersey. The new 131-room all-suite hotel in Eatontown, NJ; a 99-room all-suite hotel in Mt. Laurel; and the 87-room all-suite hotel in Cranbury, NJ, will be the 60th, 61st and 62nd additions to the brand’s growing portfolio of extended-stay hotels, once completed.
In celebration of this unprecedented occasion for the brand, the mayor of Eatontown and representatives from Six Continents Hotels, Inc. (SCH), including Jim Anhut, Staybridge Suites, SVP of Brand Marketing, will be in attendance at a ground-breaking ceremony in Eatontown, NJ today.
“This marks the first time the brand has broken ground on three hotels in the same state in the same month. With the addition of these three developments to the existing portfolio of 52 hotels and more than 50 in development the brand has hit a milestone with more than 102 properties in the pipeline,” said Anhut. “These three construction starts are helping to propel the Staybridge Suites brand forward on a path of accelerated growth.”
The Eatontown, NJ property will be owned and operated by an affiliate of Six Continents Hotels, Inc. Riya Hospitality Group will own and operate the Cranbury hotel and Harish Surati will own and operate the Mt. Laurel property.
All three suburban hotels will provide easy access to major area corporations and tourist attractions. The 89,616 square foot Eatontown hotel will be located in the Donato Business Park and is just minutes from other key area attractions. The 55,000 square foot Cranbury hotel will be located minutes from the state capitol, Rutgers University, Six Flags Great Adventure and nearby Princeton, New Jersey. The 65,700 square foot Mt. Laurel hotel will be located just a few miles from Subaru of America Headquarters, America Suzuki Motor Company Headquarters, Okidata Headquarters and in close proximity to several corporate parks.
The addition of these three new properties will fill a need for up-market extended stay hotels in New Jersey that cater to guests with plans that require stays for extended lengths of time. Guests will be able to choose from a selection of three suite configurations (deluxe studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom/2 bath). All suites will feature functional, well-lit work stations with ergonomic seating in every suite, fully equipped kitchens, data ports, two-line speaker phone with voicemail and direct dial access and high-speed internet access is also available.
The new properties will offer several unique amenities such as complimentary guest laundry and workout facilities, deluxe complimentary breakfast buffet, 24-hour business services, and fully-equipped PC work stations with complimentary high-speed Internet access located in the library. In addition, future guests will enjoy gathering in the hotels’ Great Room for nightly “Sundowners” receptions for refreshments, light appetizers and conversation.
All three properties will offer Priority Club Rewards, the world`s first hotel loyalty program. Guests benefit from new member-preferred features like points transfer, points purchase and the fastest way to Elite status, with competitive features of no blackout dates and no point expiration to form a powerful program that is easy and truly rewarding. According to CNN: “The new Priority Club Rewards program is the best one around…” Enrollment in Priority Club Rewards is free.
