IHG HOTELS & RESORTS recently introduced new prototype options for its three suites brands – Staybridge Suites, Candlewood Suites, and Atwell
Suites – focusing on space and efficiency while maintaining key features from current designs. These prototypes are scheduled to be available by the second
quarter of 2024, with the first properties featuring them expected to open as early as 2025, IHG said in a statement.

Initially, the prototype designs will only be accessible to U.S. properties, with the possibility of future adoption in Canada, the Caribbean, and Latin America.

“IHG continues to build on our nearly three decades of leadership in the extended-stay and suites space by evolving our prototype designs to increase owner
value while offering the spaces and amenities short- and long-term travelers value most,” said Kevin Schramm, IHG’s senior vice president for development,
mainstream brands, U.S. and Canada. “Our new concepts reflect guest and owner feedback, and enable new and existing owners to deliver our modern suite
experiences—in various forms—to more markets without compromising consistency or quality.”
