This Residence Inn is true to form for the brand, with the most recent beautification upgrades included - simply GORGEOUS.
The Wi-Fi is FAST&FREE
Parking is free.
The beds and bedding are superb and afford a restful night’s sleep in luxury.
If you book a suite with the bedroom(s) separated from the living/kitchen area there is a bathroom in each bedroom. This seems to be standard across the brand, which provides privacy for the family or group in the regard.
The kitchen is fully equipped, with the exception of a toaster which I thought was standard equipment; and not all suites have an oven; but all do have a cooktop. This is the same for all RI, as far as I can tell from experience.
The suite itself is large and set up for comfort. It truly resembles an upscale condominium – very nice to come home to after a full day in Gainesville!
The towels are soft and thirsty bath sheets. The hair care is Paul Mitchell.
The entire suite was immaculate!
The personnel are all friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and have been known to let guests push checkout until after 1PM, with special request!! We took advantage of this!
Although we didn’t stay during a night that provided the manager’s reception, we did find breakfast most pleasing. Lots of fresh choices, beautifully arranged!
I rated this as a “4” strictly because of the price tag. I’m certain that’s due to location; but we have stayed at many equally qualified RI properties for less than 70% of what this property charges. When I’m in the area and feeling extravagant again, I will definitely bring my family here!
