Guest of the Day
Each day, there is a guest of the day at Staybridge Suites London Vauxhall. If you’re an extended stay guest, you have a good chance of being guest of the day on more than one occasion. Nevertheless, short stay guests have a chance too!
All guest rooms are incredibly spacious which is a rarity in London. The en-suite room features a flat screen TV with cable channels. Moreover, the complimentary, fast WiFi also has a strong signal in the room. In addition to a studio suite, one bedroom suites are also available. The one bedroom suites are great for long stay guests as the extra room enhances the ‘home away from home’ experience.
Every room at Staybridge Suites features a fully equipped kitchen. This is especially useful for extended stay guests as they don’t need to eat out every night. There are a couple of grocery stores within walking distance of the hotel as well as the pantry adjacent to reception. If you’re vegan, vegetarian, on a gluten free diet or just eating healthy, having your own kitchen is extremely beneficial.
24 Hour Fitness Center
When you’re away from home it can be difficult to keep fit. For this reason there is an onsite fitness center which includes, cardio equipment as well as a multi use weights machine. The gym is open 24 hours a day so if you’re suffering from jetlag, you can still exercise at unusual hours.
24 Hour Laundry
When you’re traveling it can be difficult to find a laundry. Furthermore, it can be expensive to use the hotels laundry service. At Staybridge Suites, you have complimentary access to the laundry room. All you need to bring is your dirty laundry and some detergent. The laundry room is adjacent to the fitness center, so why not have a workout whilst you wait for your laundry?
Lockers for Extended Stay Guests
There are lockers which are perfect for extended stay guests. Maybe you’re visiting London for a week, then another destination before returning to London. You’re welcome to leave any belongings in the secure lockers. This ensures you don’t have to carry any unnecessary extra baggage.
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7pm-8pm is the social hour. Throughout social hour, you’re welcome to complimentary drinks and snacks. Social hour is a good time to chat with the staff and more importantly, get to know your fellow long stay guests.
Social Hour, Table Tennis and Pacman
During Social hour a table tennis table is set up in the lobby. Guests can enjoy a little game of table tennis as well as enjoy drinks and snacks. In addition to the table tennis table is a Pacman cocktail arcade machine. This is especially fun for the older guests who can remember their younger days playing Pacman.
Complimentary Buffet Breakfast
All guests are invited to the complimentary breakfast buffet each morning. The breakfast includes hot meats, cold meats, cheeses, fresh breads, sweet pastries cereals as well as fresh pancakes. In fact, whatever you prefer to eat for breakfast, it’s probably there. I was able to enjoy an excellent English breakfast of sausages, beans and toast. To drink, you can select from a number of fruit juices in the fridge as well as hot tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Furthermore, after breakfast has finished, the tea and coffee remain available throughout the day.
