Though we historically travel in excess of 200 nights a year, this was our first stay in a Staybridge Suites. It was a last minute decision after we drove past another chain property we had blindly booked and rejected it based on its exterior appearance which screamed deferred maintenance.
Quickly did a search of available Amarillo properties and, on a whim, called the Staybridge Suites. The manager answered the phone, was extremely polite and quickly made our booking. We were unfamiliar with Amarillo and had a little difficulty finding the property because it is not easily visible from the highway.
When we arrived, our pet friendly room was not ready so we were offered the choice of waiting for the room to be cleaned or accepting another room on a higher floor. The manager intervened and was very concerned about accommodating our original request for a ground level room and said he would get it cleaned quickly. We opted for the quick check in.
The property itself is gorgeous. It is obvious that a lot of time and money has been spent creating a unique identify for this brand. Its positioning is in the upper tier of extended stay properties. The room itself was very large ... since it is an all suites hotel, all rooms are large. The color combinations, finishings and architectural details combine to create a very warm, almost luxurious feel to the room. The kitchen cabinets are very nice and the appliances are all first rate.
Breakfast is a step above the usual hotel offerings. A really nice buffet with lots of choices.
A pleasant surprise. I will be sure to include Staybridge in my hotel options for 2014.
