We stayed 1 night at the downtown residence inn during our road trip round Texas. We arrived late afternoon & check in was smooth & easy. We'd booked a 1 bedboom suite as I couldn't find any prices for 2 bedroom. When we arrived in the room it was a 2 bedroom so I called down to reception. They'd actually upgraded us which was great. This suite was smaller than the one we'd just stayed in San Antonio however the amenities were the exact same, queen bed, TV, ensuite, large wardrobe. Our suite had 2 air con systems & the only downside was my side didn't seem to cool as much as it said on the thermostat.
The residence inn & courtyard are in same building so the receptions are separated but you got to use amenities of both hotels. There is a Starbucks in the courtyard & the sports bar had the free buffet breakfast. In the sports bar you can also order breakfast from menu for a price but the buffet has enough choice you don't need to pay.
The best thing about hotel is location, 6th street is 2 blocks away, the Capitol a 10min walk & flagship wholegoods about 15mins.
All in all another great, clean hotel by marriott.
