Lancaster Township-based Manor Management Corp. recently added 18 extended-stay rooms at its Days Inn hotel in Susquehanna Township.
The company, which does business as The Manor Group, made the capital improvement in an attempt to draw more business travelers and others coming to Harrisburg for political activities, said Amber Green, the firm's vice president.
"We are trying to pull from the political scene and get people to notice that area (of North Front Street) again," she said.
The improvements included kitchen additions with granite countertops, updated furniture and renovated bathrooms.
"We wanted modern and upscale," Green said. "We're trying to cater to a higher clientele."
The extended-stay suites at the Days Inn are renting for $350 per week.
The Manor Group develops, owns and manages hotels and apartment communities. The firm owns 10 apartment communities in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and West Virginia. It owns three other hotels in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
