Beyond the suite packages, each hotel is also offering additional amenities that align with their brand's signature lifestyle positioning:
As the habits of both leisure and mega-travelers change, "Suite Week" recognizes the popularity of and increased demand for suite bookings around the world. New and existing hotels are going so far as to add suite offerings within their properties in order to meet the large number of requests. Recent trends also show that business travelers today are more likely to extend their stay for leisure with their partners, families or friends – creating a new category of travel called "bleisure" – which has resulted in the need for larger rooms. Additionally, leisure travelers are more frequently traveling with multi-generational family members, a trend that has also increased demand for larger room types.
"Suite Week" will run from April 15th – April 29th with all package details available on http://north-america.starwoodoffers.com/nyc-suite-week.
