Welcome to ESLA!

Extended-stay has been a booming segment with substantial growth in recent years. We expect it will continue to be a main driver in the market heading into 2023, particularly as demand for these accommodations soars and labor remains expensive and in short supply.

In 2021, the segment outperformed all other chain scales, with occupancy running nearly 20 points higher than all other U.S. segments combined. More recently, Q3 2022 industry data from STR shows guests checking into the economy and midscale extended-stay hotels at a higher rate (76%) than that of the traditional economy and midscale hotels (62%).

What is an Extended-Stay Hotel?

Extended stay hotels are hotels where the guest can book accommodation for 5 days or more. It offers limited to no food and beverage facilities or meeting space. It is just like renting an apartment with no fixed contract. The hotel is comprised of individual guest rooms or suites. Hence, these hotels are fitted with the facility like a normal home with kitchens, utensils, dining areas, self-serve laundry, etc.
