    IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group has recently announced the opening of the new Staybridge Suites Houston Stafford-Sugar Land, the first hotel in the brand’s portfolio to open with one of the new innovative interior designs created by Savannah College of Art and Design’s (SCAD) interior design students. First announced in 2009, SCAD, one of the top five interior design programs in the nation, partnered with IHG to help completely refresh the Staybridge Suites standardized room décor packages. The Staybridge Suites Houston Stafford-Sugar Land features the Vista scheme, which focuses on fresh color, organic patterns and subtle textures. “We collaborated with graduate students at SCAD, who are truly the next-generation of business travelers, to create these designs from a fresh perspective,” said Robert Radomski, vice president, Global Brand Management, Extended-Stay Brands, IHG. “The flexibility, customization and environmentally-friendly materials in the new suites bring the Staybridge Suites brand into the future, while still maintaining the warm and comfortable residential atmosphere that is an important part of our identity.”

    The new Staybridge Suites Houston Stafford-Sugar Land, at 11101 Fountain Lake Drive in Stafford, close to the Southwest Freeway – US Highway 59 – and behind the Fountains Shopping Center, is just 15 miles southwest of downtown Houston and less than an hour from Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport. The hotel offers a complimentary area shuttle within a five-mile radius, which includes the facilities of several major businesses, such as Chevron, Texas Instruments, Flour Daniel, Baker Hughes and Schlumberger. The hotel also offers travelers easy access to shopping and dining as well as area attractions such as The Sugar Land Science Museum, the Museum of Southern History, the Galveston beaches and NASA’s Johnson Space Center.

    With four stories and 90 guest rooms, the new Staybridge Suites Houston Stafford-Sugar Land offers three well-designed spacious suite options (deluxe studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom/two-bath).

    With the new Vista design, each room includes several features intended to reduce environmental impact.

    • Kitchen counter tops and bathroom vanities are made of quartz, an abundant natural mineral that is virtually maintenance-free and requires no chemical sealing.
    • Modular carpet tiles are 100 percent recyclable and produce less waste upon installation and replacement.
    • Low-VOC paint throughout the suites helps eliminate toxic airborne chemicals.
    • Tile selections incorporate pre- and/or post-consumer recycled material.
    • Many fabrics will be dyed and printed in a revolutionary process that does not require water, meaning left-over chemicals won’t be flushed out into the environment.
