Extended Stay Hotels - Dayton, OH
Location is what put Dayton at the economic and recreational heart of the Midwest. If you are looking for hotels in Dayton, Extended Stay America has several great places to stay, each offering comfortable accommodations and low rates.
With over half the nation's population and manufacturing capacity within 500 miles of Dayton, it is no surprise that the region hosts significant industrial, aerospace, technological and engineering research. Companies like CareSource, Cargill and Cox Enterprises are but a few of the businesses that keep Dayton's economy humming.
Another contributor to Dayton's economy is nearby Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Named in part to honor the Wright brothers, Wright-Patterson is the headquarters of the Air Force Materiel Command. The base is also home to a major Air Force medical center and the Air Force Institute of Technology. Located next to Wright-Patterson is the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Tracing the history of human flight from the Wright brothers to modern space flight, this museum is a wonderful way to spend several hours.
Once you have viewed the Air Force Museum, head over to the Dayton Aviation Heritage Park. This national treasure tells the story of flight by combining four amazing venues, the Wright Cycle Company, the Wright Brothers Aviation Center, the Huffman Prairie Flying Field and Interpretive Center and the Paul Laurence Dunbar House.
If you want to spend some of your free time among nature's beauty, Dayton's Five Rivers MetroPark system offers fun activities in any season. For a calming walk among the flowers, stroll through the Wegerzyn Gardens, the Cox Arboretum and Aullwood Garden. The Park also features ten natural areas with rivers, prairies, wetlands and so much more. Here you can hike, mountain bike, bird watch or just commune with nature.
Dayton's dedication to arts and culture is nationally renowned. The Dayton Art Institute is not only a wonderful museum, but admission is free to the public. With a diverse collection of permanent exhibits, plus special exhibitions throughout the year, there is always something for just about every taste. For fans of the performing arts, the Schuster Performing Arts Center hosts everything from opera and ballet to Broadway shows.
For those who appreciate music groups like the Steve Miller Band, Fraze Pavilion in nearby Kettering, Ohio, delivers an outstanding concert season with performances you are not likely to soon forget. If a quiet, historical district with interesting art galleries and great little restaurants is more your style, then plan to visit the Oregon District.

University of Dayton isn't the only local university to deliver an exciting afternoon or evening of sports. Also in the Dayton area is Wright State University, home of the Wright State Raiders.
