I stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and found it to be a very pleasant experience! The bed was very comfortable and the suite had plenty of space. The pool was refreshing and the hot tub was hot, but not too hot. Breakfast the next morning was well stocked with plenty of tasty options; my son and I especially enjoyed... More

Great staff! They were out of cookies when we arrived after dinner, and the guy baked some fresh for us and brought them to our room!!! Clean, comfortable and well designed guestroom/bathroom. Decent breakfast choices. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this property from April 25 through the 26th in town for a 50th birthday party. We really like this hotel. Check-in was quick and painless and we were able to check in early and be on our way to visit our friends. We had a one bedroom suite and it was extremely clean and comfortable. The kitchen... More

The hotel is in good shape with a nice lobby and well appointed rooms, Pretty comfortable with everything you expect and need, The fold out is not very comfortable but pretty sure none of them are. I would definitely ask for a room on the interior away from the road as much as possible. Free breakfast is typical, edible but... More

We stayed in this property for two nights. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The rooms have plenty of space, but the arrangement of the kitchen/bedroom/bath could be better. There is no place where you are able to "alone" with a light on and not bother everyone else. the breakfast was good, but the serving area is very small... More

I will stay here over and over again when I come to Fort Wayne. We usually stay with friends but this time we stayed at this hotel. The location was good, very close to 69. Great for those with friends or family in Lutheran Hospital too. The rooms were spacious suites with full kitchens. By full I mean a full... More

Stayed here for one night for business in February, 2015. It is an updated Residence Inn which is such a treat for this business traveler who has stayed in his share of worn out Marriott brand hotels around the US and Europe. Clean, quiet, attentive staff, updated décor. Not much else to say except that you will have a good... More

Fort Wayne is one of those cities which are impossible to get around if you do not have a car. I have no problems getting taxis (which are not too common and generally not that attractive to sit in), but when the hotel does not have a bar or restaurant when you arrive after a long flight, it becomes a...
