I'm a big fan of the Staybridge Suites- having stayed in 5-6 in the past. If you aren't familiar, it is, as it says, a suite with a kitchenette and dining space in your room. I would say the rooms are made to a high standard with luxurious furnishings and fittings. The facilities are great here with a laundry room, a lounge and den area, meeting space and kitchen hub.
This particular one is really central in Birmingham- the downside is it doesn't have its own parking so do factor this in when choosing this hotel- I think I paid approximately £20 for parking overnight in the NCP on High Street- which is literally only 2 minutes from the hotel if that.
I've stayed here a couple of times, its been very good value for money when I've been... I would imagine the price is good to entice new business to a relatively new hotel... Only time will tell but I hope I'm wrong!
I was on the 9th floor this time, its exceptionally quiet in the rooms- which are spacious and I noted how bright and airy it was in the morning with the two big curtained windows drawn.
Unfortunately I was only here for the one night but I always imagine these would be great places to stay for a week or so as it does ooze a certain social atmosphere between guests. a central hub "kitchen" - its more than a buffet breakfast... it feels like home... Help yourself to items in the fridge, cut your own breads and the selection is really very good for a hotel.
There is a pantry shop in the hotel opposite reception which is well stocked- I haven't tried anything from it so I cant comment on the prices but it always looks tempting.
Whether you are staying here for business... which I think its the ideal choice, especially if here for several nights as you don't feel you have to fine dine or conform to the traditional hotel etiquettes. For families it has the space, the location and the kids will love the breakfast choices.
For me, I love this style of hotel... this one could only be better if it had its own parking.
