LivSmart Studios by Hilton: Extended Stays Ideal for 20 Nights or More

Hilton has added LivSmart Studios by Hilton to its portfolio. The lower midscale, long-stay hotel brand offers simplicity, consistency and convenience to guests who may be travelling for weeks or months at a time.

In October, Hilton celebrated the groundbreaking of the brand’s first hotel. Construction on the future 137-room property in Kokomo, Indiana is expected to open by late summer of 2024.  

“With a resilient $300 billion workforce travel market, the extended-stay segment continues to grow. It has never been as primed as it is now for this long-stay brand, and we’re thrilled with the initial excitement we’ve received from owners.” 

Isaac Lake, Brand Leader, LivSmart Studios by Hilton

Public areas will be filled with natural light and feature a simple retail market, a large guest laundry room and a fitness centre. A spacious outdoor gathering area will include a fire pit, grills and seating for guests to connect.

“At Hilton, we continue to innovate our brands to meet the needs of the ever-evolving traveler, and we are excited to find an opportunity to better serve the long-stay guest with LivSmart Studios.”

Chris Silcock, President, Global Brands and Commercial Services, Hilton

Long-stay travelers can expect three signature elements, including: 

  • Deliberate Design: Long-stay guests will be welcomed by the hotel’s inviting exterior of warm wood tones and a modern farmhouse-inspired palette with light industrial touches. Properties will also feature outdoor patios outfitted with grills, a communal fire pit and comfortable seating to make it truly feel like home. 
  • Spacious Studio Apartment-Style Accommodations: The adaptable layout of the thoughtfully crafted suites will provide comfort and functionality. Each room will feature spacious bathrooms, ample storage space, efficient closet design, and movable, multi-purpose furniture that allows guests to utilize the space as a place to work and rest. The kitchen area is also especially important to long-stay travellers and will include a fully equipped kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, two-burner stovetop and more.  
  • Nontraditional Lobby Experience: The brand’s hyper-functional lobby allows sight lines from the front desk to the fitness and laundry areas, as well as a simple retail market, creating a safe and welcoming environment for long-stay guests looking to grab a great cup of coffee, fit in a workout or start their laundry.
