With chains we generally know what to expect, and that pretty much holds for this Residence Inn - you get a room with a kitchen, they have a free breakfast, they have a pool, etc. The place is clean, staff is friendly, it seems fairly secure, etc.
The difference here was in the room size. They offer studios and suites (I always thought of all Residence Inns as being suites). We got a suite, but it was still pretty small. They stuffed a king bed into a room that barely had room to navigate around it. It would have been much better to have a queen bed for the room size. The living area also seemed smaller than most Residence Inns. The walls were a bit thin, so we heard our neighbors television, but it wasn't too bad.
The breakfast was good, with a selection that met our needs (I'm vegetarian, my wife is vegan and gluten-free) with oatmeal for her and scrambled eggs and potatoes for me. We didn't make it to the gym or pool on this trip, so can't comment on them. Parking was in a multi-story lot adjacent to the property. It was close to full on the hotel floors, but we did find a space every day.
I'll mention that in the corner of the parking lot is a small restaurant/bar/coffee shop called the Capitol Garage that has an excellent breakfast selection. On our last day we wanted to have more variety than the free breakfast and walked over. I had a great omelet and Cathy had a wonderful tofu scramble!
