The Pierre 
New York

This luxury hotel in Manhattan's Midtown neighborhood welcomes high-profile, long-term guests. But an official private residential stay program (which requires a 30-night minimum starting at $9,450) for travelers who need a local pied-a-terre was only launched in January 2014.

Guests with reservations for 30 consecutive days (in any of the hotel's 198 rooms and suites) will have access to a dedicated manager, who handles The Pierre's residential service, the Jaguar house car, private in-room spa treatments, twice-daily housekeeping and exclusive appointments with the area's most acclaimed boutiques.

Plus, for guests who need foreign language assistance, the hotel can partner them with some of the city's specialists.

AKA Beverly Hills 
Beverly Hills, California

AKA has upscale extended-stay properties all over the United States (plus one in London), where accommodations with plenty of on-site offerings have elevated the home-away-from-home model.

Its Beverly Hill location (rates from $345 a night with a week-long minimum), which opened in November 2012 allows guests to pick from one-bedroom, two-bedroom and penthouse units as well as private-access townhouses.

Rooms and suites come with gourmet kitchens, living room fireplaces and Bulgari bath amenities. Some even have private terraces. Guests also get preferred access to neighbor Wolfgang Puck's acclaimed local restaurant Spago, which can provide in-room meals, too.
Plus, AKA Beverly Hills recently unveiled a cinema, a private, resident-only theater.

Rosewood Sand Hill 
Menlo Park, California

The Rosewood Sand Hill located in the Bay Area's business-heavy Silicon Valley, has five villas (starting with 2,300-square-foot, one-bedrooms) for extended-stay guests of 30 days or more (rates from $1,500 a night).

Guests have a high-tech kitchen (which can be stocked with snacks and drinks prior to arrival), walk-in closets in every bedroom, a small but private backyard, in-room dining from the hotel's Michelin-starred restaurant Madera, and car access within five miles of the property.

There are also golf privileges at Stanford University Golf Course plus group fitness classes at the spa included in the rate.
