Staybridge Suites, Newcastle, business travellers
In 2005, IHG was the first global hotel company to launch an extended-stay offering in the UK, opening in Liverpool in 2008. Now, there are five Staybridge Suites conveniently located in business hub areas of Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, London Stratford City and London Vauxhall.Ideal for business travellers and relocatees, the locations are key to Staybridge Suites’ success and keep guests returning again and again. For HR and corporate decision-makers, choosing a Staybridge Suites property is a no brainer. There is the reassurance of the IHG global brand, and the locations are great for business.The amenities, which include free wi-fi, a 24-hour Business Centre, and quality living space, allow busy professionals to extend their working day, relax in a home-like environment, or enjoy the free fitness room 24/7.Supporting talent on the move is important for organisations, and providing the right accommodation when employees are away from home is part of establishing and maintaining the employer brand. Staybridge Suites fit the bill for both employer and employee.At the end of a long day, it makes such a difference for the business user or international assignee to return to accommodation with the comforts of home.Staybridge Suites guests enjoy a warm, welcoming fire and a hospitable environment in the communal lounge, where they can socialise if they choose and enjoy food and drink with fellow guests three evenings a week.Employees appreciate the homely feel and having the option to cook for themselves in their fully equipped kitchen or go out if they prefer. A free daily hot breakfast makes sense if you have a busy day ahead, but cooking your own meals is easy, too.If you haven’t time for food shopping, then that is no problem either, as The Pantry, a 24/7 convenience store, is available on the premises. Free laundry facilities and a living room with TV and workspace tick the boxes for a relaxed stay.Staybridge Suites has thought of everything to make extended stays special, comfortable and welcoming. Just ask the people who use them. In fact, they are so popular that Staybridge Suites® Newcastle is currently rated the city’s number-one hotel on Trip Advisor, with Staybridge Suites® Liverpool number two in Liverpool.The newly opened Staybridge Suites® London Vauxhall is located in Spring Mews, just off the Albert Embankment, and has excellent tube, bus and rail links. The views are stunning and include the Palace of Westminster and the London Eye. With the South Bank just a stroll away, guests couldn’t be better connected to the London scene.And now, when guests at Staybridge Suites London Vauxhall return from a night out or a busy day at the office, they will be made to feel as if they are truly coming home: Waggers, the property’s resident Labradoodle, will be there to greet them!For more information please visit: www.staybridgesuites.com
