Are there any situations that I can say “I suggested to …?”

From my understanding, suggest should be in form of “I suggest someone do something.” Today I read an article about Regular Expression Algorithms and the author wrote:

I suggested to Rob that we needed to find the smallest regular

I was wondering if it’s a correct usage. If it is correct, why?


You’re feeling ill? I suggest (that) you take two aspirin and call me in the morning.

You don’t know the city? May I suggest the Ritz Carlton hotel?

The last train has left? I suggested to her that she stay the night with us.

She was looking for something easy but interesting to read? I suggested a book which had won the Newbery Medal.

All idiomatic uses of suggest. It takes direct as well as indirect objects, and object-complement phrases.
