I stayed at the Staybridge Suites RDU mainly because I had to catch an early morning flight. Having said that, I had an overall positive impression. The hotel, while certainly not fancy, was comfortable,clean and convenient (the three "c's") and the suites are roomy and well-stocked for short-term stays with mini kitchens, a pull out sofa and free coffee. There was a new, large LCD TV that pivots toward the bed or living area and new carpets and drapes with very good room darkening. The bed was a little hard, though, and could use a softer duvet cover.
The common area was a bit tight but is in the midst of a remodel. The breakfast buffet, while basic, was sufficient and had both hot and cold items. The staff are very friendly and approachable, except for the shuttle bus driver who seemed to have gotten out of bed on the wrong side.
What would make it better? A bigger fitness area and pool (guests have access to an outside pool at an adjacent hotel -- not convenient), a larger lobby and breakfast area (which is currently being remodeled so the space will be improved) and a softer bed.
But overall, this was a better-than-average Staybridge.
