A new hotel chain is making its way to Huntsville. Launched in 2020, stayAPT Suites is a new hotel chain aiming to build a portfolio of extended-stay hotels throughout the country. Although the brand launched last year with 12 newly-constructed hotels, they’re kicking things up a notch in 2021 by opening an additional 30 locations—including one in Huntsville.

Inside, each room at a stayAPT Suites will include:

  • 500+ square-feet of living space, including a living room decked out with a sleeper sofa, lounge chair + a wall-mounted 55-inch TV.
  • A full kitchen, including a stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave & refrigerators. A large island separates the kitchen & living areas.
  • A separate bedroom, available with either a king- or double queen-sized beds, a walk-in closet and a second large TV.

As an extended-stay hotel, stayAPT Suites is catered towards business professionals seeking a long-term living arrangement in a foreign town. In Huntsville, stayAPT Suites will be a welcome addition for visitors to Redstone Arsenal and NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. The hotel should be open by the end of 2021.
