“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

Lovely hotel in a great location. This property is very well maintained & spotless. It was a busy weekend in town and at this hotel & we were treated exceptionally well by all of the staff.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay & we will be back again soon.

Stayed here in the summer and again in September. Great location by the lake and donwtown close to restaurants. Clean hotel, friendly and accommodating staff. Rooms are basically a mini bachelor apartment, with fridge, stove top, microwave, living room, king size bed, desk, small dining table for 2...very comfortable. Free hot and cold breakfast in the morning. Both visits, there was nothing to complain about.

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel about a half dozen times in the past year. The rooms have been clean, the desk clerks have been friendly and helpful, the beds are comfy, and WiFi always works well. Once we did have a yappy dog bother us from an adjacent room, and I wish they didn't allow pets, but it was just one night (and only while the dog's owners left it alone) so we didn't complain. The complimentary breakfast is satisfactory, although nothing spectacular. Usually scrambled eggs, sausage, muffins, fruit, waffles, granola, yogurt... But never any bacon. (Boooo!!) The sausage and hash browns seem to be the processed, previously frozen kind. Like I said, nothing spectacular, but it'll do when you just want to have a quick breakfast and get on with the day. The gym, the pool, and the changing rooms are always clean. I think the pool is one of those salt water pools -- guess I should have kept my mouth closed. Yuck! Over all it's a decent hotel but the price seems to have been going up and up to the point where we don't know if we'll continue to stay here. We payed $119 the first time we stayed, then $139 a couple of months later, and most recently $179 was the best rate we could find for our chosen date. (I've seen it for as much as $279 per night.) Even the snacks in the "market" in the lobby have gone up in price. When you include taxes and the $15 parking fee, the value goes way down. This is just a three star hotel in Kingston, after all, not a big city. I think it should be less expensive.

Hello and thank you for posting your comments. I am delighted that you have chosen to stay with us when you have been visiting Kingston but am sorry that you feel the rates have been high. We do change our rates in May, as all other hotels do, to high season levels and perhaps this is why you saw an increase. We do sometimes offer lower rates, even in high season, and these can be found on our website, www.marriottresidenceinnkingston.com or you can always call me on 613 531 7200 and I would very happy to check rates and availability for you. Thank you again for your favourable comments regarding the cleanliness of the hotel, this is much appreciated.

Excellent location with a fabulous view. We got a two room suite for the five of us which worked out really well. The only problem was breakfast. The food was good but the line up for the waffle maker was hug with most people making 2 or 3 waffles for family members. A second waffle maker would help.

My husband and I stayed at the Residence Inn by Marriott Kingston Water's Edge. The main purpose of our visit was to participate, as a spectator, at the 15th Annual Limestone City Blue's Festival (August 25-28 inclusive). This hotel had been recommended to us by friends who also stayed here in February. We were truly impressed with the size of the room. Not only was it extremely spacious, but it was fully equipped with a kitchen, including a full size fridge, and 2 burner cooking surface, plenty of counter space, pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, etc. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. A full breakfast was also included in the price of our room. We had a beautiful view looking over Lake Ontario and the marina. The hotel is perfectly situated to the many wonderful attractions Kingston has to offer. We would highly recommend this hotel.
