If I didn't know any better, I would say that they had installed research laboratory-grade dust collection hoods throughout the hotel! So clean! The hotel opened in 2008, and it looked like it had opened yesterday.
We stayed in a studio suite, which was well appointed. Nice toiletries, a small kitchen, wi-fi, and a comfortable bed contributed to the positive room experience.
The common areas are very attractive, comfortable, and unique. The lobby/lounge features a fireplace, a small movie theater/viewing room, a game area, a small bar, and access to the beautiful patio area--where they hold events and dinners for guests. Breakfast is served in the lounge area. Staybridge is an extended stay hotel, and the amenities are meant to provide a homey feeling for those who are traveling for a long time. Staybridge is right next to the courthouse, and so you can imagine the need for an extended stay property nearby.
For our trip, we needed to stay somewhat close to the valley area of Akron/Cuyahoga Falls. Staybridge is right on Route 8 - - very close to where we needed to be. Its location is convenient for skiers in the winter, and getting to downtown Akron is a breeze.
Check-in was super easy, and the lady at the front desk ensured that we got a nice room on an upper floor. Check out was simple too.
Staybridge was designated as one of two properties for guests of the wedding we attended. It appeared, also, that a little league team was staying at the same time. The hotel was quite full. Staybridge's status as an extended-stay property really cannot support a hotel full of families with two or more children, as the fuller services they provide to their usual clientele (who are more likely to be solo business travelers) are too labor-intensive. Breakfast was crowded, and the staff could not keep up with the supplies.
There were some loud guests in the room next to ours. We called, and someone from the front desk came up to take care of it. I don't think it was a security guard; I think it was the night manager on duty. Made me wish there was a little stronger staff presence at night.
Overall, I truly enjoyed staying at Staybridge Suites in Stow. I can tell that operators try really hard to provide a comfortable and convenient place to stay. If I were a business traveler, I would not hesitate to pick this hotel. And, if I needed a hotel for a similar situation to the one I described here, I would come to Staybridge again.
