“Can be hard to find....but worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Staybridge Suites shares a building with the Holiday Inn alongside the Westfield mall. If you're coming by Tube like I did, it can be a little confusing to find, but once you get the hang of it it's very easy. Just remember there are three levels and the hotels are on the second! Out of the Tube station, up one level, then down the Street...and the hotel is right there.
This is a lovely place to stay. The rooms is large (by European standards), very well equipped (right down to a dishwasher and full kitchen setup), and the cleanliness and maintenance are perfect. Check-in and breakfast are on the 12th floor, with suites below. Staff was always friendly and very helpful. There is a restaurant and bar shared with the Holiday, but much better places within and short walk.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Olympic Stadium....quieter.

Spent 8 nights here and I really liked it. For a long stay it is excellent since they have a fully equiped kitchen in the rooms. Really clean and efficient. THe best thing is that the Westfield Mall is right next to the hotel which is open till late so any access to shops and restuarants is there which usually in London is great since things shut here quite quick. Also with both the Picadilly and Central lines connect to Stratford it makes it really accessible to the rest of the city.

Breakfast is great - simple but well stocked and fresh food. Staff is great too. The only downside was the room service which I thought could do with some improvement.

We stayed here for one night during London 2012 & I was almost disappointed to leave to go to the cycling ! I would have happily lingered in the breakfast room and looked out across the Olympic Park. Perfectly placed for Westfield Stratford & great transport links to all over London. Room was clean & service great.

Basically the place is ok, set in the shopping centre. We stayed one night because of the proximity to London City Airport via DLR. My main critique is the upgrade policy. As a Priority Club Platinum RA I booked a standard studio with points 2 months prior to our visit, based on the positive remarks at trip advisor. When I checked my booking online I saw that it had been upgraded to a one bedroom suite. At that time I was thinking of canceling my reservation because I read the Olympic Park was closed and I was not really out for shopping and other options were also possible for a reasonable price for instance the very decent Hilton Canary Wharf were I would have had guaranteed club access. In the end I opted for the staybridge suites, because I liked the idea of a big suite and a kitchen. When I arrived at the place rather tired out after traveling, the person at the reception said I had been upgraded and that was fine for me. When I got to my room at the end of a mile long corridor I noticed it was a pretty small studio. My girlfriend was happy to have a bed so I did not complain, because it was only for one night. However I still think that it is rather strange to modify the reservation and offer a decent suite and then when you arrive at the place you get some box. This has up till now never happened to me with IHG, I mostly stay in IC Hotels and had very positive experiences in the past. If I had known that I get no or a marginal upgrade I would have chosen another hotel, especially because the place was not as excellent as I had hoped. You could hear the wind outside, bathroom small and boxy no electric kettle, so I had to boil up water for tea in a pan... Honestly after my experience I would not come back and am currently thinking of canceling my upcoming reservation for Staybridge Suites Time Square, because the benefits of a suite hotel a quite marginal if you a put into a small studio...

Dear Chris,

Thank you for taking time to share your review with us. The team and I are of course very disappointed that you were left dissatisfied with your Priority Club Recognition. We of course will always try to upgrade all our PCR members. I notice from your booking that you actually booked the Standard room on PCR points. When you pay for the room on points unfortunately you usually will only get the room type you book,. Upgrades are never guaranteed however we will always attempt on the day, depending on availability to upgrade our PCR guests. I am pleased to note that we did indeed upgrade you to a Deluxe Studio Suite. I am surprised that you found this room ‘small’ and ‘boxy’ as it is over 30meters square – a pretty impressive size for a London hotel room!

I am disappointed to note that there was no kettle in your suite, of course there was supposed to be, I have since checked your room and there is one there now.

Regarding the Olympic Park being closed, yes it is currently closed, but this is due to it being refurbished in preparation for the summer when it will once again be opened as the Queen Elizabeth Park, where some spectacular events, activities and attractions are due to draw in a huge amount of tourism to the area.

I truly hope that you do stay at the Staybridge in Times Square. This is a superb hotel that has also enjoyed some outstanding reviews on Tripadvisor. The Staybridge concept offers you a great deal more flexibility, freedom and space, particularly if you are staying for 5 nights or more.

Sincerely,

Amazing experience. The service was at an amazing level. I felt really looked after throughout my stay. The staff are very friendly and smiley. Nothing seems too much trouble for these guys.
Great breakfast buffet with plenty of choice so it's a good start for the day.
The room was very clean and spacious and have all necessary amenities including your own kitchen.
A real home away from home and so conveniently located - took me under 20 min to Central London.
Westfield shopping centre is a big bonus as its right next to the hotel
I can't wait for the next trip to London and staying again at this beautiful place.
It's a must!!!

We stayed here a few nights in September 2012 (after the Olympics) and have no complaints whatsoever. Everything was top notch and we will return again in future. The apartments are centrally located; very close to the train and bus stations, shops and restaurants with beautiful views. The rooms are ultra modern, very neat and all the amenities you would expect even with Apple TV’s in the rooms. Breakfast had a wonderful selection of hot and cold options and then additionally, located at reception, a pantry stocked with everything from wines to ready meals for purchase. The reception team was friendly, helpful and went out of their way to send a pair of jeans all the way to South Africa free of charge when it didn’t arrive on time from dry cleaning for our flight home. The Hotel has an arrangement with a Taxi company with very good rates to the airport. Very impressive indeed!

Staybridge suites in Stratford is excellent: it is clean, modern, and with very friendly and helpful staff. What is on offer is much less spacious than, say, in Staybridge Suites in the US (just one chair in the corner of a bedroom, rather than a separate room for relaxing), but the kitchen facilities are good, as is the breakfast.

A key feature of this is location: Stratford has first-rate travel facilities, and one is only a short walk from them. The property is just by a large shopping mall, which has good supplies for catering for oneself (Marks and Spencer and Waitrose are both close and first rate); there is also a wide range of reasonably priced restaurants, and a cinema.

A few small points. The hotel offers low grade wifi; I paid for their enhanced service, but it was not all that reliable, and I'd recommend getting a backup 'dongle' (e.g. from Vodafone in the mall) if you need to be sure of some form of internet connection - although when the hotel service was working, it was better. The hotel provides three free washing machines and driers - they are good, but not nearly enough: even when the hotel was fairly empty, it was a matter of real luck to get a machine when one was needed; beware, also, that they also have very long wash and dry cycles. Third, the prices for outgoing phone calls are crazy - e.g. four pounds a minute to the US; six to Australia - if you wish to make calls, I'd strongly recommend purchase of a cheap phone and buying pay-as-you go minutes (there are, again, several phone companies in the mall; I personally ordered a cheap Vodafone from Amazon.co.uk to be delivered before I arrived). Finally, found the room much too hot, and it took a while to get the heating switched off.

All told, though, this is a first-rate place, and if I come back on business, it is somewhere that I will certainly return to.
