This hotel differs from most Residence Inns because it is more of a hotel than a townhome set up. This lends itself to a much more secure feeling, having enclosed hallways like a hotel, rather than a door that opens to the outside. The queen studio is perfectly comfortable and comes with a well-equipped kitchen, (everything except an oven), including a full size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and two-burner stove. Pots, pans, dishes and linens are included. The room has a very cozy sitting room, and a kitchen table PLUS a work desk. The large television swings from the sitting room to the bedroom area, using a large dresser as a base. The bathroom is very roomy with drawers and a large sliding door closet and full shower/bath. The room also has an IPOD docking alarm clock, which is a feature I wish every hotel had! There is breakfast included, as well as a happy hour with dinner each night. Parking is free. There is no better deal available in Irvine.
