This is my first - current - experience at Staybridge Suites. At first I was hesitating because of the location, to me it seemed far from the Al Khobar Corniche and central areas but it turned out
the location is just ideal, giving easy and quick access to Al Khobar, Dhahran and Dammam cities.
The property has a mini store on site and a commercial complex is just a cross the highway: Tamimi (Safeway), Pharmacy, a restaurant and a Starbucks.
The - white house - is a piece of art from inside and outside, beautifully designed and built with natural light in mind. The wall-to-wall windows allows the sunlight to bathe our fantastic and modern two bedroom suite in a rich full spectrum hue that increases our body's "feel good" serotonin levels every morning. (Many thanks to Zahra from the reservation department for this exceptional suite upgrade, it's highly appreciated).
The Gym on the 17th floor has new digital equipments, the rooftop pool just next to the gym has a beautiful view of Al Khobar Skyline with relaxing poolside chair loungers which is a great way to soak up some summer sun while gazing aimlessly around the pool.
Staff were exceptional and we felt so at-home and comfortable, special appreciation to the receptionists: Abdulaziz, Ohoud, Noor and Abdullah for welcoming words, smiles and the polite manner.
Although social gathering dinner schedule has been upgraded as special nights food has made it ideal for all guests, breakfast is still need improvement to be good for all as well!
The elevators and the non-smoking floor smell like cigarettes sometimes, a strict policy such as imposing fees on violators could be a solution. The Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage should also extend related support and solutions.
We look forward to the remaining days of our stay at Staybridge Suites Al Khobar. [Less]
