Staybridge Suites, Liverpool – Location
The Staybridge Suites, Liverpool is in the perfect location for visiting Liverpool. It’s located on King’s Dock opposite the Echo Arena, the BT Convention Centre and the Albert Dock. If you’re visiting for a convention or a concert / show, all you need to do is walk over the pedestrian zone (above). The Albert Dock is located at the other side of the Wheel of Liverpool (above). In between the Albert Dock and King’s Dock is where the Liverpool city tour buses leave from. You’ll find the city tour bus, the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour bus and the Anfield Stadium Tour bus in between the docks. It’s a 10 minute walk to the Liverpool One shopping district from the hotel.
Staybridge Suites, Liverpool – Check In
The check in desk is open 24 hours so whatever time you arrive, you’ll be welcomed. If you’re arriving in Liverpool before the official check in time and your room is available then you you’ll be welcome to check in early. There’s a 24 hour convenience store located at reception where you can purchase snacks and food to cook in your suite.
Opposite the reception desk there is a unique John Lennon / Mona Lisa print (above left). Designed by Liverpool artist Alex Corina this piece of art is known as the Mona Lennon. Around reception you’ll find several pieces of Beatles memorabilia, you’ll know you are in the home city of The Beatles. There are also some photos of the points of interest of Liverpool displayed throughout the ground floor. These photos were taken by a former long term guest of the Staybridge Suites, Liverpool. If like me you are in Liverpool to photograph the points of interest of the city then you’ll gain great inspiration from viewing these photos.
Staybridge Suites, Liverpool – Studio Suite
As a solo traveler my first choice of room is a studio suite which is also perfect for couples. In this suite you have a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, cooking hobs, microwave, toaster and cooking utensils. Whilst traveling it can be difficult to eat healthily because normally you eat out everyday. With your own personal kitchen you are able to eat healthier. The kitchen is perfect for those with restricted diets such as those on vegan, vegetarian or a gluten free diets. You won’t need to go searching Liverpool for vegan friendly restaurants or gluten free options.
Staybridge Suites, Liverpool – One Bedroom Suite
The one bedroom suite is perfect if you’re staying long term or with family / friends. Business travelers staying longer term will appreciate the space and the ability to keep your working area in a separate room to where you sleep. If you’re visiting with family then the sofa bed is huge and super comfortable so the family can stay together. Whilst traveling with kids it can be difficult eating out due to the kids restricted food choices. In this case the kitchen is perfect for preparing the food your kids are used to eating.
Staybridge Suites Liverpool – A room with a view
One of the points of interest of Liverpool is the Liverpool Cathedral (above). Liverpool cathedral looks better from a distance than up close as you can see the facade. From the room you have one of the best views of the cathedral. I recommend whilst booking that you request a cathedral view room. An alternative view you may request is that of the Wheel of Liverpool and Albert Dock.
Staybridge Suites, Liverpool – Fitness Center
The fitness center is open 24 hours which is perfect if you arrive in Liverpool jet-lagged or are working unusual hours. Located next door to the fitness center are the guest self laundry facilities. The location of the laundry next to the gym is perfect because you can exercise whilst your clothes are being washed then exercise again when they are drying. Washing powder is on sale 24 hours at reception.

The Den is a large private room which can host up to 20 people. If you are visiting on business and need to conduct a meeting, The Den is the perfect location to do this. The Den is conveniently located on the ground floor, close to the 24 hour complimentary coffee machine. It’s possible to reserve a time in The Den so you can plan to hold a meeting there in advance.

Breakfast buffet is served daily and it is a very homely buffet. You help yourself to breads, cereals and hot foods, there is a fridge where you can take your orange juice, apple juice or milk. The board in the buffet area reads ‘The Kitchen, the heart of any home’ which describes this buffet perfectly, you’ll feel like you’re eating breakfast at home.
