A brand of hotel with no locations as of yet in the Inland Northwest is planning on opening a franchise here in the coming months. That brand is Staybridge Suites and they are a part of the much larger Intercontinental Hotel Group ( Holiday Inn is included under this parent company ) . They are still in planning phase for their first location here so no opening date is set yet and construction at the site likely won't start for awhile.
Staybridge Suites will open in Coeur d' Alene near the main entrance to Riverstone, just off of Northwest Blvd. The hotel is expected to occupy the entire lot immediately to the north of McDonald's and will offer 96 suites on five stories.
Plans also call for the hotel to have an indoor pool , fitness center , complimentary breakfast , wifi and more. Staybridge Suites are a more apartment style suite hotel with suites including kitchens , similar to Residence Inn hotels. The chain has been in business since the late 1990's but has really seen more aggressive expansion in the last few years. Currently the brand has over 220 locations and another 114 are in development.
This new hotel would be the second hotel to be purposed with a short stretch of the Northwest Blvd. corridor north of Downtown Coeur d' Alene. A Fairfield Inn & Suites is behind their original schedule but is apparently still planned near the Northwest Blvd. / US 95 junction. These projects will likely help alleviate the high occupancy rates hotels often hit in the resort city during the warmer months.
