LivAway Suites breaks ground on first property

LivAway Suites, a new economy extended-stay brand, recently broke ground on its first location in Smyrna, TN.

The Smyrna location, which is expected to open in May 2024, is the first of many groundbreakings slated for LivAway Suites across the nation in the coming months, the company reports. Anticipated ground breaks for 2023 include Salt Lake City, UT; Seattle; Tampa; Austin; Phoenix; Denver; and Charlotte, NC.

“LivAway Suites hotels take approximately 12-14 months from shovels in the ground to heads in beds,” said Dan Barrett, chief development officer, LivAway Suites. “With 10 expected ground breaks in 2023, the brand expects to have LivAway Suites hotels operating across the U.S. by the end of 2024.”

“Today marks the official launch of LivAway Suites’ aggressive, national growth strategy,” said Mike Nielson, CEO, LivAway Suites. “We plan to bring LivAway Suites to many markets across the country. We know how tired and run down the majority of hotels are in this space and we intend to change that…Our guests simply deserve better.”
