Hotel is centrally located near shops and restaurants. Staff was very pleasant. Rooms were very clean and inviting. Construction was being done, but didn't interfere with guests staying at the hotel. If your a light sleep stay on the second floor, because you can hear other guest walking up the stairs if your on the first floor.

We were looking for a place for a group of friends to share and we opted for this one because of the price and the size of the beds offered for the price. We were not disappointed and instead were pleasantly surprised. Although most of the rooms have outside steps and doors, we actually ended up with the room above... More

This hotel is designed around the "old" model of Residence Inns(RI). Meaning no elevators, just outside steps, bigger rooms. The newer RI's resemble hotels instead of the original design like this one. I personally prefer the older RI's, they offer bigger units. The room was clean, and a nice flat screen TV, I had a Queen Studio, room #123. Big... More

Dear Beachcrazy 59, Thank you for taking the time to post a comment about hour hotel. I do understand your concern about the people smoking right outside the rooms. I am aware of the area you are describing as a designated smokers area, and this was something we did try, however we found that our smoking guests still just went... More

My husband and I spent a Saturday night at the Residence Inn and were generally happy with the hotel. The room was clean, with the exception of the bed skirt that had seen better days. The bed was firm but comfortable, and everything in the room worked properly. There was plenty of hot water for showers, and the air conditioning... More

I love this hotel. Besides being near the university, the breakfast is great, the staff wonderful and the rooms comfy and nice to have a kitchen. It can be tricky to get out of the hotel, but turn right, go through the business park and you can access lots of restaurants without having to turn left.

I can't say much about the staff since I didn't no do the "checking in". However, the room was a nice size and clean. I could not connect to the wifi with my phone, however I got a good signal and just used that. The breakfast was good.

We visited Charlotte for a music event and stayed here based on the Marriott reputation, our experiences with other Marriott properties and the proximity with the event venue.

First off, this property is next to Tryon road, which is a busy thoroughfare. There is no barrier between it and the road; at least one other reviewer has mentioned this and suggested that you request a room on the back side, away from the road. Add in the fact that it's a couple blocks from a hospital and you... More

I stayed here on business and found the hotel to be very comfortable. The staff is very well trained and welcoming. They served a warm, delicious every morning and had a Manager's Reception Monday through Thursday. That was a terrific feature for me since I was there on business and had no interest in cooking dinner for myself every night.... More

This property is on Tryon Street on the edge of town but its a straight shot to downtown about 20-25 minutes depending on traffic. This location is great there are several restaurants and stores within walking distance. There is a Bojangles and Burger King next door.
