After a sleepless night in a room facing the highway, at 6:30 a.m. the next morning I requested a room change farther from the highway. The desk clerk assured me it would be taken care of during the day as other guests checked out. I packed my bag in the morning and returned at the end of the second day,... More

My group and I were given no choice but to stay here because of a HUGE screw up by Hilton. It ended up being great! The staff worked with Hilton and myself to aid me in fixing my problems and Tom (I believe it was) was a GREAT help. The staff was very courteous and the breakfast bar was delicious.... More

It is a decent place to stay. We stayed in a studio. Our room was comfortable and clean. It had the things you would need for an extended stay - fridge, mini kitchen, and some seating space. It is kinda a no-frills place but the décor is streamlined and uncluttered. The gym was tiny. I think this would be a... More

Room was very comfortable however, the mattress was a little soft for my liking. It seemed to have a soft ( wore out) spot in it that I kept rolling into. Might be time to change out some mattresses. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Would stay here again

I was on business in Baltimore last week and was relocated to Columbia due to the riots. My company moved me to this property for the remainder of my stay, 3 nights. I would have preferred a more typical hotel experience with a full restaurant, indoor pool, etc., but the property was extremely clean and the service outstanding. A couple... More

We prefer to keep our car when visiting cities, then drive to places we choose to explore. This residence inn was well maintained, and for us, a good location. We visited Baltimore and Ellicott City, and within minutes, we drove to the Residence Inn. It was also a convenient 10-minute drive to Toby's Dinner Theater, Columbia Mall, and other places... More

Staff were very friendly at check-in. They had yummy chicken tacos during the (free!) evening social. During this time, they were constantly re-filling and cleaning the area. Our room was huge and was recently renovated. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, etc. Everything smelled new and clean. My bed was super comfortable. The wifi worked perfectly and was free.... More

We are currently staying at this hotel and can't say enough about how great it is. The staff have truly gone above and beyond to make us feel at home. We've been there about a week and half.

I was not at the property long.
