I see on TA this hotel is #6 of #12 hotels in Florence. I really can't imagine why, because this place was really nice! The 5 before it must be spectacular! Typical Residence Inn; seemed very new, but I’m not sure about that. My suite was clean and well-equipped with frig, stove, dishes, silverware, etc. The bathroom was very clean... More

Thank you for the fantastic review! I am thrilled to hear you were able to enjoy our hotel amenities as well as had the opportunity to visit one of Florence’s greatest prides, the Rosenbaum House! Next time you are in town, make time for the Handy House as well as Helen Keller’s birthplace More

Typical of Residence Inns. The evening social was nice and filling. Had planned on dinner downtown, but we were too full! A large crowd of people were using the patio, pool and gas grill in the common area, seemed to have it to themselves. Room very comfortable, sleep quality good. Close to downtown if needed. Would gladly stay here again.

I am so happy to hear you enjoyed our complimentary evening social. However, when you visit us again, you must make it downtown as they have fantastic shops and great eateries with local flavor! This time of year our guests know how to enjoy summer and relax by grilling out by the pool! I look forward to your next visit! More

We spent 5 nights at the Florence Residence Inn. We had a 1 bedroom suite that was quite spacious. The chair in the living room is a recliner which was nice. The property is 4 years old and pretty modern decor. The kitchen was quite nice - it even had an oven. Some of the furniture in our room did... More

I am happy to hear you enjoyed your five nights with us! Not many hotels can list an oven as an amenity and I hope you had the opportunity to use it. The complimentary evening meal socials three nights a week usually does not leave much time for in-room cooking! We are very proud to be the first hotel in... More

Residence Inns are typically cookie cutter, which is good. You know what to expect. This hotel doesn't disappoint. Nice hotel with nice surroundings and landscaping. Only marked it as a 4/5 because it wasn't as clean in the common areas as it could have been and the pillows were feather and flat. Great breakfast, good location. Quiet rooms.

Emily H, General Manager at Residence Inn Florence, responded to this review

Consistency is the goal. If you are staying at a property in New York or Florence, AL it should be consistent to the guest. I am saddened to hear our common areas and pillows were not up to standard. The hotel has often been awarded for cleanliness and we failed at consistency and I apologize. I assure you it is... More

This is a beautiful property. Interior design is very modern but with a cozy feel. The staff is very hospitable. Full kitchen with dishwasher. Free Internet service which is a real plus for a traveler.

What a great place! I was reluctant to stay at this type of property because I thought only long term residents stayed there. We decided to try it and I am so glad I did! Marlie checked us in and made us feel right at home! Our room was big and super clean. We had everything we needed and more.... More

It’s always a favorite of mine to hear the reaction of a guest who hasn’t stayed in a Residence Inn in a while or someone who was not familiar with one. I love to see the WOW on their face. The saying is true; sometimes you just gotta see the place! Gald you had a wonderful stay and hope to... More

I really enjoyed this hotel. The evening and morning meals were good with great customer service. The only downside was the pool and hot tub were out of order. Nice facilities and great people. Great food was served.

Great customer service is just the beginning! Breakfast is the best at the Residence Inn and our evening socials are so convenient to come back to after a long day. I hope you will return again to utilize the pool and hot tub. I’m sorry that it was not available for use during your stay. Both are working great and... More

I enjoy staying at Residence Inn hotels for extended business travel because the kitchen in each room allows me to cook my own food instead of needing to always eat out. This Residence Inn was clean, well-maintained, and staffed by friendly and helpful people. There is not much else I need from a hotel for business travel.
