I got to tell you all, this is a very nice place to stay and have a small business meeting at.
Let me begin by stating that the staff are all really great, they were always very helpful and accomodating. I had minor room issues and these nice gals had it looked at right away.
I had a studio suite which was smaller than what I'm used to at StayBridge, but I was by myself and it really didn't matter.
The AC had minor problems as at times in the evening the room was too warm, but as mentioned, I brought this up on day 2 and someone took care of it by the time I got into my room later that evening.
We were given the use of the hotel's conference room, which has wired and wireless Internet access, it also had a polycom phone for phone conferences. The room also included it's own whiteboard and projector screen (inside white board cabinet) and it's own climate control. The room was at the main lobby floor (#2) and within easy range of the breakfast area and coffee.
The views are incredible. There is plenty of options to eat and drink as you have a fine dining Mexican restaurant, Hooters, Old Chicago, Outback Steakhouse and TGIF all near by within walking distance. There is also a Shell Circle K convenience store at the corner of the main intersection.
The minor problems I'm going to discuss here shortly are not enough to keep me away from returning here. The staff made it worth coming back.
At night, I tried to sleep with the cool breeze coming in through my window...bad mistake as the railroad is nearby and trains seem to run every hour on the hour from 9p-4a??. Close the window and let the AC cool down the room.
If you have a room facing west (towards the mountains) make sure you close the window shades to keep the sun from coming in at the evening. Returning back to the room after 4-5p the room was very warm and it took the AC a while to cool it down, but you close the shades and hopefully the cleaning staff don't open them for you.
Evening sun-downers were dry...I really enjoyed having Hooters Wings on Tuesday night, apparently the local Hooters gives the hotel free wings for us to enjoy. Only problem is that this StayBridge does not offer free beer. They have free pop, but if you want beer you need to go elsewhere, or bring it down from your fridge that is in your room (provided you already did a beer run before hand).
Overall this was an excellent location. My fellow colleagues really enjoyed it and we may come back again to this place.
Thank you Alicia & K'Tina
