  • because the action of 'staying' is finished, in the other question you are still working with XY, that is the difference Commented May 23, 2015 at 15:53
  • In AmEnglish you can also say from 5/11 to 5/18 2015 Commented May 23, 2015 at 15:57
  • I am clear with other question,credit goes to u .In this question As the action of staying is finished but it continued for a specific period of time ,"had" denotes past, "been" means it was continuous,"stayed'' denotes past. Honestly i am unable to understand the logic

  • you can use 'been' only if a gerund 'staying' follows, since the action is over there can be no gerund, that's the logic Commented May 23, 2015 at 16:04
