stayAPT Suites Opens First S.C. Location in Greenville-Greer
Dedicated living room, full kitchen, and separate bedroom layout sets the brand-new U.S. hotel concept apart from its competitors
Upstate-area travelers finally have an option for spacious, comfortable accommodations while away from home, as new U.S. hotel brand stayAPT Suites opens its first South Carolina location on March 22 in Greer, supporting the brand’s nationwide launch. Guiding the stayAPT Suites experience is a design philosophy that abandons the traditional “one-room” hotel layout in favor of a residential-feeling suite, with intentional spaces.
Greenville-Greer visitors will be among the first to experience the hotel’s game-changing layout, marked by a dedicated living room, full kitchen, and separate bedroom. The modern, 2-story, 50-room hotel is located just 5 minutes from Greenville-Spartanburg (GSP) International Airport and about 10 minutes from Michelin North America Headquarters, and is right across the street from the BMW Group Plant, with convenient access via I-85 to all the Upstate area has to offer.
“For too long, long-term lodging guests have gone to bed right next to a kitchenette when staying in a hotel,” said stayAPT Suites President and CEO Gary A. DeLapp. “With a dedicated living room, a full kitchen with full sized-appliances, and a separate bedroom, we are proud to introduce suites that feel more residential than a standard hotel room. stayAPT Suites’ brand-new concept will give guests in Greer — and soon, throughout the country — an unmatched experience that makes life much more comfortable while traveling.”
Each suite includes an open-concept living room with a sleeper sofa, lounge chair, and a wall-mounted smart 55-inch television.
The kitchen features a full-size stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator, and between the kitchen and living room, guests can utilize the center island as a place to eat, finish working, FaceTime with family, or read the morning news.
The private, separate bedroom, located down the hall from the living area, offers either a king or two queen-sized beds, a walk-in closet, a spacious desk, and a second large, wall-mounted smart television.
The hotel also offers amenities that bring peace of mind to travelers navigating the COVID-19 global pandemic. Each stayAPT Suites room features its own central heating and air system, providing a quiet ambiance, while minimizing shared air with other hotel guests. Windows in both the living room and bedroom offer an opportunity for fresh air circulation. And the hotel’s optional, mobile app allows guests to bypass front- desk interaction with contactless check-in and digital-key room access.
“stayAPT Suites’ Greenville-Greer hotel is located just across the street from BMW headquarters, and within a short drive to the GSP Airport — making it a convenient option for domestic and international travelers visiting BMW and other major businesses in the region,” said stayAPT Suites’ Greenville-Greer franchise owner Tony Free. “We are ready to serve guests visiting this fast-growing area, and look forward to providing them with accommodations that feel more like home, no matter how long their stay.”
stayAPT Suites’ Greenville-Greer hotel is located at 1455 Hwy 101 South, Greer, SC 29651. The new location is now accepting reservations.
