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. The hotel itself was very nice. The breakfast was above most and the staff were very friendly. I almost gave the hotel a four but I could not... More

We have been loyal Marriott travelers for many years, and Residence Inn, Florence did not disappoint. Great customer service, wonderful amenities, and that Marriott Mark of Excellence, which is seen in every aspect of this property's operation. Thank you for another great stay.

We recently spent a week at Residence Inn in Florence. AL while visiting family. The extra benefits of complimentary breakfast and full-size kitchens greatly enhanced our stay.

The Residence Inn was designed for guests like you in mind when staying several days in a row. The fully equipped kitchen allows you to continue your lifestyle as you would at home, preparing your meals, without the need for eating out all the time. The only difference and best part of it all is that we will do the... More

Honestly, this was a second choice to the Marriott Shoals resort, but I have to say I was VERY pleasantly surprised by this room. In fact, after visiting a family member at the Marriott Shoals resort, this room was way better. It was without a doubt one of the nicest I have had over the years. Every thing was very... More

As they say – there is no price tag for cleanliness! Marriott properties are some of the best in the world, the Marriott Shoals is even ranked in the top ten percent! The rooms at the Residence Inn are about 40% larger than your standard and typical hotel room which many guests prefer the large living and kitchen area. But... More

We stayed overnight for my birthday so we can have a nice and relaxing weekend. The hotel did not disappoint. Love their fitness center and the pool. Room is clean. The continental breakfast is sufficient but not that great. Won't complain that much though. Overall, it was pretty good value.

While our area is privileged and honored to host the Cal Ripken Baseball Tournament, we deeply understand the limited availability of amenities to our Corporate Travelers.
