We stayed from Saturday, July 30th - Friday, August 5, 2011.
Having lived in Okemos from 1998 to 2010; we are not only very familiar w/the area...Okemos also happens to be equidistant between my mom's & my husband's mom. Our daughter was literally born, raised & went to Okemos schools through 4th grade (until we moved in June 2010)...so, staying in Okemos for our visit "home" was a no-brainer. It allowed us to see family, friends, (former) neighbors, eat at favorite restaurant haunts, etc...without feeling like we ever truly left!
The King Conference Suite was a perfect size for our family of 3 for an extended stay. I loved having the table in the room...it allowed someplace for our guests to sit & visit without having to have people sit on the pull-out sofabed that was made up for our daughter.
I also loved having a full kitchen in the room. Although I didn't cook anything (it was vacation!) I never had to wash a wine glass or coffee cup because I could just stick it in the dishwasher & get a clean one out of the cupboard as needed.
The daily breakfast buffett was very good. The Staff were always pleasant & took a moment to say hello or ask if you needed anything. I LOVED having a FREE laundry faciiity right @ the hotel. I had 3 loads done all at once in the time it took for breakfast.
My daughter & a (former) classmate thoroughly enjoyed the pool.
We only plan on visiting Michigan once a year - but when we go - we will always stay at the Staybridge Suites.
ps: Last year, when we sold our Okemos home...my daughter & I had to stay in a hotel for approx 2 weeks after my husband had already moved to our new home in Florida as we had to wait for school to finish. Anyway, she & I stayed @ a competing extended stay facility there in the Big-O....I wish we would have stayed @ the Staybridge!
