I got a new job in a brand new place, now what... I called the Residence Inn because I have stayed at Marriott facilities all over the world and they are the best. I made my reservation and made the trip to start a new life. The Residence Inn is a wonderful place to stay; beautiful rooms, comfortable beds and... More

Comfortable beds, large Apartments style rooms with full kitchens and friendly staff are only part of this hotels charm. They also serve food on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights as well.as have a nice clean little fitness room. I've stayed all over Florence and this one is by far the best.

As a result of an obviously unscheduled family funeral, a reasonably large group had to find suitable accommodations on short notice. It turned out that we required more than 20 room nights with space for us to gather for family sessions. The family members came from California, Texas,Oklahoma, Virginia, Nevada, Florida and North Carolina so it was no easy matter... More

I do not normally stay at Marriot chain hotels, but I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The front desk staff was extremely nice and helpful. The hotel was very accommodating to our large group. We surprised that they welcomed pets of all sizes. We stayed in a studio, which was very large. For longer stays of a week or... More

We know it can sometimes be difficult to be away from them so we invite you to bring them with you! We charge a pet fee which is applied the extensive and routine cleaning after our furry friend’s checkout, ensuring there... More

I stayed here on a business trip. Like all Residence Inns the rooms have a kitchen area with stove top, dishes and flatware, dishwasher, microwave and full sized refrigerator. The breakfast is well prepared with a good range of choices and on Mon,Tues,Weds there is a light dinner which is also good. The bed was comfortable and my room was... More

Great stay. Nice front desk staff. Housekeepers are nice and friendly. The hotel is an extended stay with kitchens. Some have full stove and ovens, and other rooms have just a countertop stove and no Oven. The couch is a pullout, and the eating area in our room was equipped with a small table and 2 chairs. The rooms are... More

Business travel on this one - great place. Comfortable beds. Great workout room. Very friendly, helpful, and knowledgable staff. I travel to Florence often. While this is not my 1A place to stay it is a very close contest and price considered it is the best hotel in the area!

I have always liked Residence Inn. This time I was on a motorcycle ride and two of us shared a two bedroom suite. It was perfect. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, nice kitchen.
