Loved this hotel! Helpful, friendly staff, very clean, nice amenities.We would definitely stay in a Staybridge again!
Rooms: We stayed in a two-bedroom, two bathroom suite with our family of five (three kids). It was perfect for our family. The kitchen was very convenient. It was too small to really cook a full meal, but great for snacks, drink etc. Nice to have a full fridge and freezer and dishwasher and all the necessities. Really appreciated having drawers and lots of closet space in the bedrooms and cabinets in the bathrooms to store our stuff and manage clutter.
Breakfast and Snack: The free breakfast was a really nice convenience. Not a huge selection but definitely solid. You have to eat on the early side for the best selection. Pretty much the same every day. You can expect: scrambled eggs and some sort of meat (it was ham every day except bacon one day), cold cereal and oatmeal, small selection of fruit (melon or pineapple, apples and bananas), yogurt, bagels/toast and waffles (only one waffle iron with long lines, so you have to really want one!). Plus coffee and juices. The option for an evening dinner/snack was really nice, though we never took advantage of it.
Pool: The pool was awesome! Not overcrowded, lots of spaces to sit in the sun or shade. We swam almost every day.
Amenities: Used the fitness center a couple times and it's small (two treadmills, one elliptical and a small weight machine) but does the job. There is free laundry, which we never used but was a nice option. There is a little shop with snacks, necessities) etc that was very reasonably priced.
The location was close (within walking distance) of the Westgate entertainment district. Movie theaters, restaurant and a lovely open-air plaza with fountains that was great to walk around. Not sure if we would opt to stay in Glendale again, though - as most of the places we ended up going seemed to be closer to Scottsdale or DT. Would've liked to be a little closer (however we were never farther than 20-30 miles for most things.
Minor drawbacks: I didn't love that there was daily light housekeeping instead of a full-service clean. This was straightening, making beds, restocking etc. This probably would have been totally fine if we were not traveling with three kids. But as it was, I really would have liked to have the option have had the floor swept/vacuumed daily. Kids get messy! :) Again, the hotel was very clean, and they did a great job with what they DID do.This probably would not be an issue for anyone without kids.
The pay preview movies were insanely priced ($18, even for kids movies? Perhaps that's every hotel?), and they had very, very slow wireless. It is great that they offer their guests this for free, but we ended up using our portable hot spot and paying the over charges because the wireless was so slow. Browsing is fine, but streaming movies (netflix, hulu) or downloading movies or books on a tablet (we did this for the plane or on our road trip to the grand canyon) pretty much impossible.
Overall, we were very satisfied with this hotel and would not hesitate to stay with them again! Comfortable, clean, family-friendly and reasonably priced!
