I stayed several nights at the Staybridge Laredo. It would be a great location if you are attending an event at the Laredo Energy Arena, because it is just a short walk. Behind the hotel is a little lake with a trail, great for early morning jogs or walks. It seems to be a very safe area, too.
There isn’t a lot around this property in the way of restaurants or amenities. There is a Whataburger not too far away, and the hotel shares a parking lot with a Stripes gas station/convenience store. There is plenty of parking space for both. I went to pick up a couple of things at the Stripes, and I have to say I was tempted by the freshly prepared food offerings they had available. From the looks of the crowd in line, it must have been pretty tasty, too.
This was not my first stay at this Staybridge, and as a Platinum Priority Club member on a previous visit I was upgraded to a one bedroom suite. This time I wasn’t acknowledged as a loyalty guest at all. Not a problem, just an observation.
I stayed in what I believe was called an extended king studio suite. It was a nice design, and worked quite well for a single guest. The room had a single comfortable chair and ottoman, desk and a desk chair. The little kitchenette worked fine for a short stay, but the mini-fridge would be an issue if I was there for a longer time. The room was clean, and other than one of the TV remotes not working, everything was in good order. There is an ice machine for guests on the 4th floor which I don’t always see at Staybridge properties. It’s a nice touch for short-term guests. Internet in the room was decent and there were plenty of TV channels for evening surfing. The breakfasts and evening socials on both days were very nice, and the food was plentiful and fresh.
All the staff I encountered were pleasant, but many spoke only Spanish so I was glad that I remembered some of my high-school lessons! I’ll brush up and be much better prepared on my next trip.
The only real complaint I have about this property is the fact that there are no electrical outlets near the bed. Many travelers have lots of electronic gizmos and use phones as alarm clocks. We like to charge our devices overnight. The lamp on the desk has electrical outlets built in – so why can the same style lamps be placed next to the beds? It would be an easy fix and would certainly make a lot of us happy.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay. I recommend the Laredo Staybridge, and I will be back.
