Studio 6 Unveils A New Way To Stay With Chic Prototype
Prototype Combines Modern Style, Comfort and Value
Accor North America, one of the nation’s largest hotel owner/operators and the parent company of Studio 6 Extended Stay, today announced its plans for the first new Studio 6 prototype in eight years. Studio 6 is revamping the budget extended stay experience by introducing a modern, simple and functional design while continuing to provide the same special amenities and affordable weekly rates to accommodate travelers staying five nights or more.
The new prototype features separate seating areas for eating and working. The kitchen offers a bar with stool seating and an additional small flat-screen TV for guest convenience while eating or cooking, and the settee/banquette is conveniently situated in the corner of the living area, providing a “table for two.” This unique feature encourages and allows for interaction between guests, whether during meals, discussions or games and adds to the residential spirit of the new design. The new, modern bathroom features double doors, black granite and a large vanity area with personal storage space. The pedestal bed allows for storage of luggage under the bed and allows for easy cleaning access and visibility. Priestman Goode of London designed the room to optimize the use of space and to provide a comfortable, residential feel for extended stay guests.
“The fresh look of this new design will allow our extended stay customers to feel more comfortable and at home during their time at Studio 6,” said Olivier Poirot, CEO for Accor North America, Motel 6 and Studio 6. “The prototype offers the best of both worlds - a modern feel at an affordable price.”
The first Studio 6 prototype will be a corporate-owned location in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and construction will begin in the summer of 2009. Future plans call for Studio 6 corporate properties to be retrofitted with elements of the new prototype, and franchisees can begin construction on this prototype in summer of 2010.
