I spent a week in comfort at the Staybridge Suites Fort Worth.

They are part of the IHG group. I do not spend a lot of time at IHG hotels so it was interesting to have this experience.

The suites are just that, they consist of a complete kitchen, lounge area and a separate bedroom and bathroom. It is like staying in a small apartment.

I looked online today for costs later this week and next week and rates are between $100 and $120.

This is not a lot to pay for this type of accommodation. A good breakfast is also included as well as parking. Use of the laundry is also free, they even supply you with washing powder at reception !


Staying in the suite:

The kitchen:

The kitchen consists of a fridge, counter with sink, microwave and all cutlery and dishes.

Very useful to have a toaster and coffee maker too.

All cutlery and crockery is supplied. It is also useful that there is a large grocery store across the road less than 10 minutes walk away.

The lounge:

Outside the kitchen there is a table and shelf, and a desk with lamp, phone and internet hard wire.

The lounge area has a foldout couch with center tables/footrests. There is a chest of drawers with the tv on it. The tv can swivel so you can watch from bed or the couch.

The bathroom:

Dove toiletries are supplied. The sink has hand wash and body lotion attached to the wall as well as tissues and a shower cap.

The bedroom:

The bedroom is basic with pleasant sheets and really nice pillows.

a remote on a bed

Each lamp stands has plug points available.

a telephone on a table

The cupboard has ironing board, iron, wash basket and shelves. No shortage of storage places.

One shortcoming is that here is no safe in the room.

Free breakfast:

Rather a nice breakfast with fruit, pastries, tea and coffee, oatmeal, cereal.

Here is the hot food, the eggs, bacon and sausage with nice condiments.

This is the lounge / breakfast area. There is another lounge available next to this one.

a room with a fireplace and chairs


The hotel facilities:

This is the free laundry with washers and dryers.

a room with a stack of washing machines

A small but comprehensive workout room.

a room with exercise equipment and balls

A small office with computer and printer for travel documents.  a computer on a desk

This is an addition I have not noticed before. There are 4 lockable storage units ( I presume on each floor)  that you can use while staying at the hotel.

The little store on reception has a few useful items. Always great when they have ice cream and Coke Zero.

a shelf with different types of snacks on it

a refrigerator with drinks and drinks on shelves

This is the main entrance with the breakfast area in the background. Nice and festive in December.

My conclusions:

This was actually a rather good stay. Nice room, nice breakfast, all the extras made for a pleasant experience. This is similar to the Embassy Suites so I will definitely be on the lookout for Staybridge Suites in future.
