All our Extended Stay America associates play a role in creating and maintaining an inclusive culture in the workplace.

Put People First

Employee Resource Groups

Extended Stay America values all people. To support diversity, Extended Stay America will be launching two new Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) this year to support our female and African American associates; and plan to launch more ERGs in the future.


Honoring Veterans Today and Every Day

Veterans Day is all about honoring and thanking our nation’s veterans for their bravery, courage and sacrifice. Veterans play a very important role in our society. Every day, veterans help to preserve our rights and freedoms.

In addition to employing hundreds of military veterans and reservists at our hotels and hotel support center, Extended Stay America is proud to welcome thousands of active military and veterans at its properties across the country each year.

To support military personnel and families, Extended Stay America offers Temporary Travel Duty (TDY) and Permanent Change of Station (PCS) rates at hundreds of hotels across the country and supports the Department of Defense by honoring the Department of Defense Flat Rate Policy. Just select the Government & Military option in the rate drop down box when searching for hotels.

Women of Extended Stay America

Extended Stay America celebrates the tremendous women who continue to make a positive impact in the world and at Extended Stay America every day, and specifically pay tribue to them during Women's History Month.
