But I was in Phoenix for work, and the Residence Inn Phoenix Desert View is right across the street from where I was working. I didn't have high expectations, but I absolutely loved my stay at this Residence Inn. The front desk staff were all very helpful, warm and friendly. The rooms are very well appointed. The free breakfast bar is quite good, well stocked and good quality. There are regular social nights in the foyer, with a great vibe and good food. The bed was comfortable, and it is a fairly quiet hotel even when staying during spring training. I've since stayed two more times, both when in Phoenix for work. The housekeeping can be a bit patchy, but that would be my only real complaint. I can highly recommend it.
