stayAPT Suites Opens in Columbia, S.C.
NEW Apartment-Style hotel opening continues development momentum behind the fast-growing U.S. hotel brand
(COLUMBIA, S.C.) Columbia-area travelers now have access to a better way to stay while away from home, thanks to a new apartment-style hotel, stayAPT Suites, which is now open. Located at 851 Columbiana Drive in Irmo, stayAPT Suites’ residential-inspired suites offer a new standard of comfort for travelers seeking any length of stay. The 75-room Columbia-Irmo hotel continues a wave of new U.S. hotel openings from the fast-growing Matthews, N.C. headquartered hotel brand.
Ideal for business, relocation and leisure travelers, stayAPT Suites’ spacious suites offer a full-size kitchen with full-size appliances, a dedicated living room, and a separate bedroom.
On the heels of stayAPT Suites’ Greer and Greenville, S.C., location openings last year, the new Columbia hotel is a convenient accommodation for travelers visiting the Midlands region. The apartment-style hotel is less than 5 minutes to both the popular Columbiana shopping center and Prisma Health Baptist Parkridge Hospital, and is within 15 minutes of downtown Columbia, the University of South Carolina, and the Columbia Metropolitan Airport.
Generously sized at an average of 500 square-feet, each stayAPT Suites room includes an open-concept living room with a sleeper sofa, lounge chair, and a wall-mounted smart 55-inch television. The full-sized kitchens feature full-size appliances, including a four-burner stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator. The private, separate bedroom, located down the hall from the living area, offers a king or two queen-sized beds, a walk-in closet, a spacious desk, and a second large, wall-mounted smart television.
“We are excited to bring our unique hotel concept to Columbia,” said extended stay veteran and stayAPT Suites President and CEO, Gary A. DeLapp. “This area has much to offer both its residents and guests – from a vibrant culture to its diverse and thriving business community. We look forward to providing Columbia travelers with an all-around better hotel experience.”
The opening continues a year of fast-tracked development for the company, which has disrupted the long-term lodging segment with its signature layout and aggressive development schedule. stayAPT Suites is on track to open 20 hotels by the end of 2022, with an additional 15+ in development.
