Self-service has never looked so sleek. Sophie Ritchie shares why Staybridge Suites offers the perfect base to explore Manchester and unwind at the same time
Perfect for a home from home feel, the newly opened Staybridge Suites on Oxford Road offers its guests a taste of indulgent independence.
An all-suite hotel found close to Manchester’s thriving core, take a swift lift trip up to the 24-hour reception for a property that boasts up-to-date interiors, friendly staff and convenient location.
The 1 bedroom suites consist of contemporary living rooms, kitchenettes, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms – each kitted out with handy appliances, cool artwork and cozy furniture.
Whether you’re dining in or eating out, these sizeable abodes offer the best of the both worlds – especially if you’re staying for longer in Manchester. Studios are also available for those seeking a more petite arrangement.
With masculine greys and neural colour schemes, nothing’s too garish within these walls. Instead, it’s the impressive views that command attention here, with sprawling skylines reaching across Manchester’s rooftops and beyond.
Complete with big sofas and T.Vs, with added pillows and throws for a homely touch, these chic nests are a welcome way to unwind after a busy day in the city centre.
The hotel’s communal kitchen area is the hub of Staybridge Suites, with comfortable seating and a number of inviting spaces.
Quirky touches add a fun feel to the atmosphere – like the giant teddy bear or mock suitcase buckles on the sofas.
Head here for a simple but satisfying buffet breakfast, as well as 24/7 complimentary hot drinks, juices and light snacks. If fruit doesn’t take your fancy, a number of other snacks and ready meals can be purchased from the reception desk.
From 6 – 7pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, there’s even a complimentary happy hour for a little Manchurian mingling.
If you’d rather breakfast like a king (or queen), venture downstairs to The Laureate restaurant at the connecting Crowne Plaza hotel.
Aptly named in reference to its close proximity to Manchester’s university, guests can devour a brimming selection of buffet sections or order a la carte for poised plates of poached eggs and avocado toast.*
*Please note, breakfast at The Laureate is not included in Staybridge Suite hotel bookings.
The Wordrobe Verdict
Self-service has never looked so sleek. If you’re planing a Manchester getaway, these spacious suites are the perfect way to enjoy the city and unwind at the same time.
