Staybridge Suites® Reveals The Secrets Behind The Art Of Traveling Solo

Stocks in this article: IHG

ATLANTA, Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Staybridge Suites, IHG's upscale extended stay hotel brand, knows that many travelers, especially those who stay in hotels for weeks or even months at a time, struggle with being away from home. To help ease this struggle, Staybridge Suites has partnered with celebrity chef, world traveler, author and television personality G. Garvin to provide useful tips, tricks and hints so guests can master " The Art of Traveling Solo."

Starting today, consumers can visit the Staybridge Suites Facebook page for useful travel content and tips dedicated to "The Art of Traveling Solo." The application offers videos, pins and recommendations of who to follow on Twitter, and consumers can also provide their own tips and learn from other experienced solo travelers through a special Q&A section. G. Garvin will host a series of online videos that will show fans what he's learned from spending so much time on the road, from how to make a quick and tasty meal in a hotel suite kitchen, to how to pack for an extended trip. G. Garvin will also host a live 30-minute Facebook chat at 3:30 EST today about "The Art of Traveling Solo" from the Staybridge Suites Facebook page.

"I spend weeks at a time on the road for work, and, like a lot of people, I find it tough being away from my friends and family," said G. Garvin. "I've found that if you stay at a hotel like Staybridge Suites, you have plenty of space for yourself in your suite, but you get the chance to socialize with and get to know other guests, so traveling alone is a lot less lonely."

One of these opportunities is The Social, the evening reception held three times a week at all Staybridge Suites hotels. Every Tuesday through Thursday, guests enjoy complimentary food, drinks and conversation. Staybridge Suites has recently rolled out new customizable menu items for The Social, including sliders, flatbread pizzas, tacos and salads. Guests can also take advantage of other areas of the hotel meant for social interaction, including great outdoor spaces like The Patio and The Backyard, where guests are invited to relax and unwind after a long day. The Outdoor Living Room mimics upscale residential trends, with casual, relaxed spaces where guests can enjoy the great outdoors, with amenities that include comfortable, all-weather outdoor furniture, stacked-stone fireplaces, high definition televisions and open, landscaped gardens.
