My family had the pleasure of staying at the Staybridge Suites, Corning, NY for one evening (9/05/13).
Staybridge Suites Corning has clean, comfortable rooms with nicely appointed kitchenettes. Nice breakfast buffet which my daughter was happy to see included a meat option (sausage). Great location for our visit as our plans was to walk to the Corning Museum of Glass prior to check-out (12pm). They allow dogs, as in our case ... a small, quiet Shih-Tzu. There is a pool and kiddy pool, an exercise room with about 6 pieces of equipment and what appeared to be free laundry facilities (bring your own soap).
We arrived Thursday evening at about 6:35pm. During check in, my wife asked about local food options and was giving a few area recommendations. After unloading the car and dropping everything in the room and bathroom breaks we were anxious to head out to find food. It's now 6:53pm and as we're leaving past the front desk my wife asked about a sign noting a complementary evening buffet (b/w 5pm-7pm). I guess coming in with the bags, the kid, the dog and checking in, we completely missed the sign that was at our backs. Still the receptionist at the desk never mentioned it. Here's where it gets better though ... so there's this other employee who's passing through but stops to answer my wife's question about the buffet sign. John S. was informative, funny and jokingly said "hey you've got 7 mins but you can catch our buffet." Hurray for John as he saved some tired people from heading back out to spend unnecessary time and expense and instead we were able to enjoy the dining room with a few fajitas, salad and a selection of wines. John further distinguished himself Friday around noon. We'd just checked out and I'm packing the car when I see John coming in to work. I introduced myself, shook his hand and thanked him for the tip about what ended up being our dinner last night. He's cool and spends another few minutes making recommendations about the sights in the area. Some waterfalls and hiking trails and such. What a great hotel employee who simply seems to get the meaning of helpfulness and service.
Now I won't hold a grudge against the young lady from the night before as she did apologize for not mentioning the buffet. She indicated she didn't think we'd have time to catch it. Ok, I get that but fact was we did have time, it wasn't over and frankly IMO she should have mentioned the buffet right as my wife was checking it. Then we'd have had time to choose to stay or head out.
Staybridge Suites was the right choice for our Corning stay and we'd stay there again. Again our thanks to John S. for making our stay even better than it might have otherwise been.
