Receptionist at check in was very friendly, polite, informative and made us to feel like it was her pleasure to have us stay. We had a one bedroom suite on the 11th floor for 7 nights overlooking the Olympic stadium and, off in the distance, the London skyline. We could also just make out the London Eye.The suite was very comfortable with a well fitted out kitchen, adequate size lounge with comfortable furnishings, a large bedroom with large comfortable bed, 2 good size wardrobes and in room safe. The bathroom was quite large with a great shower over the bath. Free WiFi worked fine and we had no signal drop outs. The included smorgasbord breakfast was not the best or most varied we've ever had but it was adequate and did the job quit acceptably. Let's face it, we are not paying Ritz or Hilton prices, and the overall experience is better them anyway. Afternoon/night staff on reception sometimes appeared a little vague when asked for information but all the day staff were great, especially the young French guy (can't remember his name) who was particularly obliging helping me to print my airline boarding pass.
Being part of the Westfield shopping complex it's very convenient for all of your shopping needs and wants, including supermarkets, cafe's, restaurants, fast food and fashion. Several train lines run through Stratford station which is virtually just across the road. There is also a major bus terminus out the front of the shopping center plus a taxi pickup/drop off area. Underground train trips into London were only 15-20 minutes with trains leaving about every 5 minutes on average.
We really enjoyed our time at Staybridge Stratford and will always stay here whenever in London.
