Stayed for 1 night and found the hotel overall to be an adequate place to stay. I picked the Residence Inn as I was staying with my husband and tweenager so we wanted more space than just a standard room. I forgot to take photos, however, the photos on website and provided by management on TA are accurate.
I stayed in a one bed suite, king in bedroom, sofa bed in LR. Room was super clean, pleasant and inviting. I likes the fact that there was a desk AND a table in the living room. The bedroom was small but adequate, the washroom is accessible from the bedroom only and sink area is outside of the bathroom itself which is a pro for some but a con for others. (I wake early and have to disturb my sleeping husband to brush my teeth) There was a regular door between LR and BR.
The king bed is comfy enough- not like a regular Marroitt bed,but good enough.No super soft pillow top but good and firm. Triple sheets, no bedspread- I like that. My daughter reported that the sofa bed was not one of the best, but it was OK.
There was a small amount of street noise, but it wasn't too bad. The hotel is near the pubs, so I might be leery of staying on a week end night as I would assume it would be noisy.
The parking under the hotel was good, you have an assigned spot and need your key to open the door, so I felt it was really safe and secure. Spots were a bit snug.
I really liked the workout room. There was a lot of space for using a mat and exercise ball. Also, they have the 1,3, and 5 pound girly weights, which I appreciated. There were also treadmill, bike, eliptical, weight benches, and a full set of regular free weights. All of the cardio machines had their own TV which you could plug into with you headphones.
The breakfast was typical Residence Inn which I like. Waffle maker, continental stuff, as well as scrambled eggs and a breakfast meat and potato.
All of the staff were friendly and helpful, the small convenience food shop in the lobby was unusually well stocked, compared to what I have seen at other places.
Overall, its a good spot in the city if you want a larger space or kitchen facilities. Although we didn't use the kitchen, the dishes came in handy for snacks/drinks and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking.
I would stay again.
Tip: the icemaker was on in the freezer and dumped a tray of ice in the late evening. The noise made us all jump! I would suggest checking its in the off position before bed time!
