PARSIPPANY, N.J. -- Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham, the extended stay hotel brand that is part of Wyndham Hotel Group, has unveiled a new hotel prototype intended to enhance the overall guest experience while reducing development costs for franchisees.


The new-construction prototype is a major step in a strategy to evolve the upper midscale brand to provide a contemporary, consistent environment across the portfolio complete with the social, work and living spaces that best fit long-term guests’ needs.

Additionally, the design significantly lowers the cost for hotel owners to develop a new Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham property, making it a more competitive offering in its segment with an approximate 46 percent in savings compared to the previous prototype.

“When our guests are away from home, we want to them to feel comfortable, stay productive and have access to the amenities they’re accustomed to in their daily lives,” said Bill Hall, brand senior vice president of Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham. “This prototype’s new design and offerings gives guests the opportunity to make the most of their time on the road, whether they’re with us for a few days or several months. At the same time, our owners will benefit from a new-construction product that can deliver higher returns and greater efficiencies.”

The prototype, developed with 96 suites over four floors, features stacked stone indicative of prairie-style architecture and pops of red on the building’s exterior eaves, windows and doors. It has also been designed as a LEED-certifiable building, a demonstration of the brand’s commitment to sustainability.

The open lobby space offers extended stay guests a social environment with comfortable furniture, flat-screen televisions, a communal dining area, a fireplace and specialty partitions that define spaces while maintaining an open floor plan. Exterior public spaces have been enhanced with an entrance patio and back lounge area. Additional outdoor options include a fireplace and a pool.

Studio and one-bedroom suites range from 350 to nearly 600 square feet and feature a neutral color schemes accented with warm and cool tones, contemporary furniture packages and updated guest bathrooms with environmentally friendly Mineral Fusion® amenities. Suites also offer full-service kitchens with full-size refrigerators and microwaves and operable windows.

The overall design is intended to be flexible so as to accommodate an individual hotel’s market and location while also maintaining a consistent look and feel across the Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham brand portfolio. It is easily adaptable for conversions and existing Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham hotels through the implementation of décor and design features, such as color schemes and soft goods.

Fifteen hotels which converted to the Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham family last year recently completed extensive, multi-million dollar renovation projects to incorporate the look and feel of the new design.

Pillars of the Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham brand that remain with the new prototype include free wireless internet access, complimentary hot breakfast daily, weekly social hours, guest laundry, meeting space, business services, fitness facilities and convenience store items.
