I’ve stayed alone at Staybridge several times and the personnel there are really nice! The hotel prepares lovely breakfasts each morning–cereal, hot and cold, pancakes, eggs, bacon, muffins, etc., plus mid-week they have suppers for guests. There’s an exercise room and laundry room, as well a shuttle to take you to the hospital and pick you up. My recent room was on the third floor and I always double lock the door and put the metal latch down as well so no one can open the door from the outside. With a little kitchen that includes a microwave, stove and refrigerator, plus a couch, desk and chairs, it makes for a cozy place, but I’ve also stayed at National Jewish. When I’m on twice a day infusions I found that best as I don’t want to have to get up early and travel back and forth for medication and/or tests. Also, it was pleasant meeting other guests and chatting with the nurses, and the meals at NJH were quite good as they have a certified chef prepare the food. His soups are terrific! While there I was able to use the computer (they have one available for guest use at Staybridge, too), and I went down to the library often. Personally speaking, if I feel fairly well, I stay at the hotel; if I don’t feel so great, or am under treatment as when I awaited surgery, I stay at NJH. Either way, I always feel relatively safe!
