Staybridge Suites Rochester University
Ranked #12 of 29 Hotels in Rochester
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Since a number of reviewers have said the hotel has a free airport shuttle, I thought it might be useful to point out that this shuttle does not run between 10:30 AM and 5:00 PM (so I had to take a taxi from the airport). It doesn’t run weekends either, so I couldn’t use it to get back to the airport. So the free shuttle was useless to me. (Cab fare was $11 plus tip.)

The breakfast was fine, nothing special, paper plates, limp bacon. But pretty good coffee!

The view of the river is very nice. There is a terrace that overlooks the river, with steps down to the walk.

The hotel is just across the river from the University with a lovely view on the river side. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The one bedroom suite had a nice counter where we could eat in addition to the living room area. The studio also has a small kitchen and a couch. We were very pleased with the space. We drove to restaurants. The housekeeping is a bit confusing as the information in the room said "light housekeeping" Monday through Friday only -- not very satisfying in my opinion. Light housekeeping means changing the towels, empty the trash and make the bed. However, we did get that done over the weekend anyway without asking for it. The breakfast was fine, above average for a motel breakfast with the waffles being the best thing there. The service at breakfast was a little slow as far as replacing items but this was a minor inconvenience.

My suite was modern, clean, comfortable and spacious with a lovely view over the river and trees to the University of Rochester. The hotel is next to the river, along which there are trails for walking, running or biking. The buffet breakfast was better than average, and the restaurant area was not overly busy in the mornings. There do not seem to be many restaurants within easy walking distance, but the suite was equipped with a kitchen for you to make your own meals if you want, and there is also the hotel shuttle bus if you need to get around. Also, they serve complimentary meals and drinks on the social evenings, several nights per week, although I did not try that. The hotel was quiet during my three night stay. There was plenty of parking and everything worked with no hassles. Excellent.

Room Tip: The suites with a view over the river are worth it

Staybridge Rochester. Loved it.. The room was spacious and modern. Has A beautiful view of the river and the University . Thanks Helen!
The breakfast was quite good with baked goods, cereal, omelets, bacon, sausage, potatoes fresh fruit and more. Hot coffee anytime of the day or night. We were there for a wedding and had lots of family and friends staying there also. A couple of small complaints about the Fitness room not being adequate. That was all . Everyone enjoyed themselves. Saw lots of little ones enjoying the indoor pool.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing the River

Whether you are visiting U of Rochester or the beautiful city of Rochester, you will be so happy you chose to stay at Staybridge Suites. The suites are spacious with the bedroom separate from the living room and full kitchen. You can walk across a pedestrian bridge to the university or take the hotel shuttle. The hotel shuttle is also available to pick you up from the airport. The breakfast bar is adequate though the eggs taste odd, there is a small but adequate fitness room and small indoor pool and jacuzzi. You can buy wine by the bottle at the front desk, which is quite good and affordable. Staff are friendly and helpful.

My family has stayed twice in a two-bedroom suite. It's very spacious and comfortable with a great view of the University of Rochester. If you're visiting the University, this is the place to stay. The breakfast was ample with a lot of variety. All the staff I met were very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: A river view is very nice.
