Of the two options, folding and stacking chairs, we recommend the latter. Stacking chairs are generally more durable. Chairs that have legs that connect at the bottom (e.g., front to back), add an additional level of durability. Stacking chairs also generally look nicer and create an environment of permanence.
The higher the weight capacity, the better. Padded chairs are nice, but they are much easier to vandalize.
