US: Raldex Hospitality is a Staybridge Suites extended stay hotel in Florence, South Carolina.

The property, at 150 Westpark Drive near the Florence Center, will have 112 rooms, split between one-bedroom, two-bedroom or studio units.

It has a 2,600 square foot meeting space that can be broken into three smaller spaces, which can be used as a large ballroom or for classrooms, business events or banquets. Amenities will include complimentary breakfast, a business centre, fitness centre, laundry facilities and an outdoor pool with a fire pit and grill area.

Gregg Parsons, president of Raldex, said: "Florence is a great location," Parsons said. "With access to two interstates and growing industries, there are several different markets to provide hotels. Everything we have is right here in Florence. We have a large investment, and that's how we want it to be."

General manager Robin Osborne said: "It's been a long time coming. We're excited to have the extended-stay brand, and we believe this is going to provide a great service to people coming into our community. This area is where I-20 and I-95 come together. It's a good stopover for anyone traveling through. The Florence area is growing with a lot of new corporate businesses, and this location has a lot of dining options, the rail trail, tennis courts are close by and the new soccer complex is close to being finished."

The Staybridge Suites hotel will begin accepting reservations for meetings and events starting in mid-to-late summer.
