My husband and I stayed here from January 23 to 27th. It was the first time we had stayed at a Staybridge Suites hotel and we had doubts about it, knowing from many NY trips that hotel rooms in NYC are usually tiny with few amenities. This hotel is amazing! The staff is wonderful. We arrived around 3:30 in the afternoon and our room was not yet ready, but was guaranteed for 4pm. We waited in the beautiful great room of the hotel (lovely fireplace) and the room was ready a little after 4pm. Because of the delay, we were given a complimentary bottle of wine and a box of chocolates!
The room is really like a studio apartment. A full kitchen with stainless appliances (microwave, full refrigerator, stovetop, and dishwasher). King bed with pillowtop mattress. Bathroom with extremely small shower, desk with office-style chair and another chair with an ottoman. Nice city view from large window (see my photo).
We arrived on a Thursday. Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, the hotel has a reception for all guests. Wine, soft drinks, and a lovely buffet of snacks (even a small salad bar). In the morning, there is a free breakfast. A really nice setting and a lot of food, but food that should have been hot (eggs, pancakes, etc) were barely lukewarm. No problem, since we had a full kitchen, after the first morning we enjoyed cooking breakfast in the room.
The hotel is located right next to Port Authority and so we had easy access to the mall that is a part of the Port Authority complex. Really nice, since the weather was so cold during our stay.
There is also a pretty little bar in the hotel which is open in the evening.
Another plus: free WiFi in our room! (There is also a small business center on the main floor) I have read several other reviews that said the elevators were extremely slow, but we didn't find that to be a problem during our stay.
What a great hotel! We really enjoyed our stay!
