IHG Opens a New Staybridge Suites Hotel in Houston

ATLANTA —InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened the Staybridge Suites Houston NW Willowbrook hotel, located just off Highway 249. With this addition to IHG’s Houston hotels, there are now more than 30 Staybridge Suites hotels in Texas, with more than 15 additional hotels in the pipeline.

“We’re very pleased to welcome the Staybridge Suites Houston NW Willowbrook hotel to our quickly growing family of upscale extended stay hotels,” said Robert Radomski, vice president, Brand Management, Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites brands. “With more than 30 Staybridge Suites hotels in Texas, the state—and specifically the Houston area—is a key development market for the brand. We are excited to offer Houston travelers another place to enjoy the home-like and community living experience that Staybridge Suites hotels offer.”

The hotel—which converted to the Staybridge Suites brand following a $2-million renovation—is owned by Willowbrook Hospitality, LP, managed by DePalma Hotels and franchised by an affiliate of IHG.

“This is our first Staybridge Suites hotel, and we are excited to add the flag to our portfolio and grow the brand here in Houston,” said Ashwin Patel, general manager, Staybridge Suites Houston NW Willowbrook hotel. “We look forward to providing a warm and home-like atmosphere for our guests, many of whom will be traveling to the Houston area for work with nearby companies and other business drivers located near the hotel.”

The three-story property features 77 suites (a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom/two-bath). Complimentary amenities include Internet connectivity throughout the hotel with Wireless Anywhere, daily hot breakfast, a laundry room, fitness room, pool and 24-hour business center, as well as access to The Pantry, the hotel’s 24-hour convenience store. Guests can relax and mingle in the hotel’s Great Room during The Social evening receptions, held each Tuesday through Thursday, offering complimentary beer and wine and customizable entrées.

The Staybridge Suites brand, which recently opened its 200th hotel in Denver, is part of IHG’s diverse family of brands, which operate in nearly 100 countries and territories.
