Newcastle's Staybridge completes £500,000 refurb
Newcastle’s Staybridge Suites has completed a £500,000 refurbishment, 10 years after opening.
The refurbishment has seen the transformation of the reception area, which includes the Den – a meeting room available for hire – with public spaces which can be used for work or socialising.
Lisa Crocker, general manager at Staybridge Suites Newcastle, said the changes will help the hotel maintain it's top TripAdvisor slot going forward.
“Airbnb has opened travellers’ eyes to the benefits of self-catering, there’s definitely a growing demand from those visiting Newcastle for a way to stay that bridges the gap between hotels and home,” she said.
“As a result, we’re attracting a lot of ‘bleisure’ travellers – people who stay with us on business during the week but whose partners, families and even pets join them at the weekend so they can make the most of our city.
“We’re especially delighted to be working with Orange Box North East to recycle so much furniture back into the local community, and to know that these items will find a new home amongst those most in need.”
