A new and fast-growing hotel company seems intent on opening a Cordova location.
StayAPT Suites, which opened its first hotel in October 2020, is listed as the applicant on a Memphis & Shelby County Land Use Control Board application. It calls for a 76-room hotel at 1630 Chickering Lane, just behind the Kroger on Germantown Parkway.
StayAPT’s longterm company plans call for more than 100 corporate-owned hotels and more than 200 franchised properties, which will each contain between 59 and 87 rooms, according to its website.
The brand’s hotels are primarily marketed for longer-term stays, with each suite coming with a dedicated living room, separate bedroom and a full kitchen.
“We believe that being away from home shouldn’t mean having to sacrifice all of its comforts — that’s why each 500+ square-foot suite has a distinct living room with a sleeper sofa, a lounge chair, and a 55-inch television; a kitchen with a full-size stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator; and a separate bedroom with a walk-in closet, separate TV, and workspace,” the company’s website says.
