I stayed here in mid April for just one night and I'm glad I did. The front desk staff was friendly and warm and check-in was quick and easy. The hotel is very clean and the atmosphere is very warm and comfortable. It has a contemporary and updated feel but still feels like home. You'll find nice granite throughout the hotel (including the rooms). The standard room was super spacious and cleaned very well. The color scheme was muted enough to allow for a relaxing atmosphere. There was a couch and a small kitchen area and a queen size bed. The vanity and sink are separate from the shower/toilet and that allows for even more flexibility in this huge room. Plenty of space and options for a long term stay if needed.
Breakfast in the morning was extremely varied and sure to please anyone! All kinds of bread items, oatmeal (with add-ins), cereal, diy waffles, sausage and eggs, great coffee, and juice bar.
I knew Staybridge would deliver because I'm familiar with the brand, my traveling companions, though, were even more impressed because they didn't know what to expect! I will definitely stay here any time I need to be in Durham.
