Stayed in June 2014 for a 2 night midweek break.
As is usual, found that the Best Available Rate was from the IHG website.
This was my 1st stay at any Staybridge Suites; & I must say I was very impressed.
As other reviewers have mentioned, the ground floor entry appear to be quite sparse, however this changes once you get to the Reception area on the 2nd Floor. One distinct advantage for us was that the lifts will only go to the Reception floor unless you use your room card. Good from a security point of view. If there is more than one guest staying, simply ask for an additional room card.
Staybridge Suites seem to be an excellent mix of serviced apartments and a hotel with its breakfast and hotel style amenities – In my opinion, a brilliant concept.
Each Studio has a bedroom area, an en-suite and has its own fully functioning kitchenette, with sink, dishwasher, hob, microwave oven/grill and more than adequate counter space. Included are cutlery, pots/pans, and other basic cooking utensils, as well as the more common kettle and toaster. Whilst everything is provided for preparing meals, I did wonder where a 2nd guest would sit to eat. The en-suite facilities in the Studio consisted of just a shower (no bath) but this was not detrimental to my stay.
The Studio as a whole was immaculately clean. I understand that there is no housekeeping at weekends unless specifically requested, but in my opinion this makes it even more of a “home away from home”.
We had no problem whatsoever with any external noise, so would say that their soundproofing is excellent.
The self-service Breakfast has a great selection; fruit, yogurts, cereals, pastries etc and there is a limited choice of hot food also.
Value for Money? – Definitely! (But bear in mind that any price you see online will be exclusive of VAT).
Staybridge Suites Birmingham has an excellent central location, very close to New Street Station and the Bull Ring.
I would definitely stay here again and have already recommended this hotel to family, friends and colleagues.
