Free shuttle to/from airport and most places around the hotel. Spacious clean rooms with new fixtures and decor. Decent breakfast buffet and great "pantry" selection in the marketplace. This hotel hits the mark for the business or family traveler. Nothing luxurious or amazing other than consistent good service, clean comfortable surroundings. The Capital isn't really walkable and there's not much... More

We stayed at this hotel for the second time this February. Our first visit, a year earlier, was less enjoyable because of the surrounding area (very run down at the time). This time, our visit was excellent because the surrounding area has been completely revitalized. Now this hotel is in the middle of all the action in the hippest part... More

This Residence Inn is in the middle of downtown, a block or so from the Capitol, the state Supreme Court, etc., and a short walk to the newly developed "old town" bar scene. Rooms are typical Residence Inn suites with full kitchens, clean & well equipped. Also has typical free breakfast, including scrambled eggs- not just some warmed over sweet... More

It was excellent to hear that you found our hotel to be the perfect spot for your visit to the Tallahassee area. It is true; our hotel is in the heart of the up and coming Art’s and Entertainment District. This is Tallahassee’s fast growing hot spot for dinning and evening entertainment options. In fact this week we just welcomed... More

Tom O, Gaines Street Pies is also one of my favorites. In the battle of pizza, I side on the thin crust. In my opinion, Gaines Street Pies has some of the best crust in Tallahassee. They also have a solid selection of craft beers, most on draft – the atmosphere is definitely authentic college dive which only adds to... More

We have been traveling to Tallahassee to visit for a few years now and have been mostly disappointed to the quality of accommodations for the price.

Excellent location when visiting FSU. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Hotels near large universities can sometimes appear overused and unclean. Not the case here. We would defiantly stay again.

Great hotel, which is consistent with the Marriott chain and specifically the Residence Inn brand. Room overlooked the parking and wad very quiet. I believe a train came through early in the morning but it wasn't loud enough to get up and check the time (if that makes sense). We got there after dark on a Friday (my daughter and... More

Please accept our team's apology. Our neighborhood is one of the up and coming Arts and Entertainment areas in the Tallahassee area.

As a frequent traveler the most satisfying feeling is finding the rare individuals that know how to provide true hospitality and costumer service.

Decided to Stay here after being put into 3 different dissatisfying rooms at another big chain hotel. Check in was easy. Got a King bdrm suite. Very spacious, clean, not too far from the mall, and other shopping areas. Beds comfortable, staff friendly! I had no complaints! Loved it!

I was there on business overnight. The room was extremely clean and neat. The staff was fabulous and helpful. The one bothersome issue was the freight train that woke me up at 1130 pm and 300 am. Felt like a scene from the movie "My Cousin Vinny" but of course, the hotel has no control over that. Would stay here... More
