I stayed at the Staybridge Suites for two nights for business, and I was thoroughly impressed and pleasantly surprised with the experience.
I wasn't expecting much, as this is a business hotel, a bit off the beaten road, in an isolated cul-de-sac of Sunnyvale - use your GPS to find it as it isn't well signed from the main road. And if you don't have a rental car, it will be difficult and expensive to get around with cabs... But, the hotel delivered on friendly staff, unexpected comfort and unique amenities that made my stay productive and enjoyable.
The staff are all incredibly helpful and friendly. I arrived with a late check in to a smiling front desk attendant.
Breakfast is complimentary, which is a big bonus - and includes more than just the basics. There were egg dishes each day, and hot dishes as well as the standard cereal, fruit and yogurts. Also, coffee is served in both mugs and to-go cups, perfect if you want to take a cup with you.
Also complimentary Tuesday - Thursday are evening drinks and food, which you could essentially make your dinner. The night I was there, there was a surprisingly good beef dish with rice. Free wine and beer, also - can't beat that!
But most of all, the rooms are quite large, with good layouts and good design. Modern TVs and cable in each room, a working desk and free wifi, privacy from your fellow guests, and very quiet allowing a good night's rest.
The only things that I think the hotel could improve upon are a few of its in-room amenities. The toiletries are sub-par, and you'd be better off bringing your own shampoo, body wash, etc. as the ones provided are quite cheap and generic. Also, the linens on the bed and towels in the bathroom could be improved upon as the sheets and towels seemed a bit low-quality and uncomfortable on the skin. And be warned - the pillows were atrocious - they felt like they had cottage cheese / lumpy filling in all of them! Wasn't easy to get comfortable. Also - it would be a nice touch if they included bathrobes.
All in all, though - this is a great value for the money and an easy and enjoyable place to park yourself while on business for a few nights. Highly recommended!
