Stay Alfred To Offer Travel Apartments At Market City Center

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Officials of Stay Alfred, the nation’s leading provider of travel apartments, said they "will soon invite business travelers and vacationers from across the world to stay in vibrant and upscale units" inside Market City Center in downtown Chattanooga. 

 

Through the travel apartment concept, Stay Alfred said it "introduces a new experience that combines the space, furnishings and local feel of a vacation rental with the consistency, reliability and customer support of a hotel.

Stay Alfred partners with developers and property managers to master-lease Class-A downtown apartment buildings, delivering improved net operating income and reduced absorption time."

 

The location is the 700 block of Market Street next to the SunTrust Bank Building.

 

“Stay Alfred is a fantastic addition to Market City Center, which already includes retail, office and residential spaces. This addition, paired with more exciting announcements to follow, will make Market City Center a destination in itself,” said Boyd Simpson, owner of The Simpson Organization, which owns the property. “We will continue to create all-inclusive urban destinations, like Warehouse Row, through this meaningful new partnership.”

 

Stay Alfred at Market City Center marks the company’s first Chattanooga property to offer the new brand of hospitality. There will be 53 travel apartments available to book beginning in July.

 

“Market City Center has everything we look for in partnering with a property,” said Jordan Allen, Stay Alfred founder and CEO. “We only offer travel apartments in downtown locations, and Chattanooga is no exception. Stay Alfred at Market City Center will offer guests an ideal location right in the heart of downtown, close to restaurants, shopping and outdoor recreation. Chattanooga is so much more than a day-trip destination; this is a great city to explore with a lot to offer.”

 

Chattanooga joins the ranks of other major cities with Stay Alfred locations including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

 

“Chattanooga is a world-class destination, not only for adventurers and vacationers, but also business travelers who are inspired by the city’s energy and innovative spirit. The opportunity to partner with Stay Alfred will incite additional tourism and growth for the city,” said Mr. Simpson.

 

Stay Alfred at Market City Center will offer one- and two-bedroom travel apartments. Each unit will have living space, full kitchen, washer and dryer, free Wi-Fi and a self-guided check-in process. In addition, guests have access to the building amenities of each unique property, which at Market City Center include a fitness center, lounge and rooftop terrace.

 

As part of the Stay Alfred community, all long-term building residents will enjoy exclusive perks, including complimentary “friends and family” stays at their own building and discounts at any Stay Alfred property across the nation in perpetuity, it was stated.

 

Additional details will be announced in the coming weeks.
