When travelling on business I prefer hotels with kitchen facilities so booked this as it was reasonably close to work. I normally consider Residence Inn comfortable but don't particularly look for them over other brands. It just so happened this was closest to work with the room facilities I like.
I really enjoyed this hotel, it is pretty new so feels clean and fresh, the staff were very helpful in advising local restaurants and the facilities were excellent. Complimentary breakfast was good with a decent selection (if a little samey after 2 weeks), the gym was reasonable and pool a decent size. There is an attached Marriott Courtyard with a bar if you need a beer, although the managers reception (Mon to Wed) has a selection of beers and wine.
The WiFi access was free and resonably fast, but tended to slow down in the evening - just the numbers accessing it I guess.
Overall this was an excellent hotel at the price, not a 5* hotel but 5* for what it gave at the price - recommended.
