Of course we had the nice big studio suite we have become accustomed to at Residence Inn. The location is not pretty, between I-75 and some storage sheds, but it is very close to the University Museum complex which was important for us. There is also lots of shopping and restaurant choices within a mile at the exit. Our main disappointment was the breakfast. It just did not seem quite as good as what we have experienced at other Residence Inns, or even Hampton Inns. Maybe the staff got a bad start on the day or something, but it was poor both days we ate there.
I agree with the comment to ask for a room at the back. No sense in taking on the noise of I-75. In the back, it really was not an issue.
Staff was all friendly and helpful. I would sure try them again and just hope for a better breakfast.
