Staybridge Suites (Somerset, NJ)-Important Info

I just wanted to let anyone who plans to stay at the Staybridge Suites in the near future know that the is hotel is temporarily closed due to a fire on May 13. Unfortunately, two people inside the hotel died as result of the fire. The hotel is scheduled to reopen in the middle of July. Again, this is in regards to the Staybridge Suites located in Somerset, NJ.

*This is an update to an earlier post.

The two people who died were actually two children-a brother and a sister. Four people were seriously injured, including the mother of the children that died and also a firefighter who was hurt went the floor gave way underneath him. What really bothers me about this incident is that it was most likely caused by a cigarette, which means it could have been prevented. Shame on whoever this careless person may be that they didn't make any effort to put out their cigarette. I would also like to commend InterContinental Hotels for effectively dealing with this tragic situation and also for writing a letter on their website regarding this incident.

It is too sad! We often go there and kids play basketballs. It is like our extended home. We went there the other day saw the patrol car block the entrance and did not know why it was closed. We seldom stayed there ever since they made it a policy to have to stay at least 2 nights (it was like that since it was Summerfield Suites), otherwise, we could have catch the fire; we normally have people stayed up late. We have caught fire at Hilton Garden Inn at Edison and notified management and fire department early enough to prevent tragedy. There was another time at Courtyard Basking Ridge ...

This is great news since we just passed by the other day when we stayed at Somerset Marriott and saw the police car still blocked the entrance. I would like to be one of the first customers to this hotel when it reopen. We like this hotel so much and, as I said, it is like our extended home.

Somerset Marriott is good hotel, but it is a hotel that does not have full kitchen nor complimentary hot breakfast, yet they charged $4.95 for their unreliable Internet which disconnect every dozen minutes.

Courtyard by Marriott at Somerset right next to this hotel is good too, but it does not have basketball court where kids love.

Besides, it's business like breakfast would charge you $10 per person that makes us missed this hotel a lot.

Ramada at Somerset has nowhere to compare, and we just tried it once and decided not for us ...

Well, we have to use the one at Bridgewater for now, and we will be very glad to see this wonderful hotel reopen...

This is great news! I wish they will change their policy after reopen to let us only stay one night each time as we often stay one night for weekend getaway. We recently stayed at Courtyard at Basking Ridge and Wyndham Newark Airport and many other hotels, but none can complete with this great hotel.

Thank you all for the informaiton above. i knew that Staybridge had closed, but I did not know why. Since I read your reviews, I looked into the Residence Inn around the corner as we have traveling to Rutgers. It was a great hotel. Much like the Staybridge Suites. Internet was free as was breakfast...and they had rooms just as large. Thanks again.

Somehow, this Staybridge Hotel is still not open ... Just stayed at Courtyard next door the other day and having dinner at the newly open Ruby Tuesday ... Still wondering when this Staybridge will open again ...

I believe that the hotel is now open again and was just redone.

Yes, I just stayed there couple weeks ago. I got a wonderful priceline price at $45 ... and I was given a 2br 2ba suites!!!

If you want to get it a good price, you may want to bid $32 first on 3* to by pass Somerset Marriott ($33 will got this nice 3* hotel), and once rejected, lower the bid to 2.5* and bid $45, you should be able to get this wonderful suite hotel with complimentary breakfast buffet
