This hotel is all about location - perfect for visits to FSU, and great for graduations (just walk across the street). However, the hotel is very overpriced as a result - even when using points. Parking is extremely limited - not enough for one car per room in the hotel. If you find a spot you won't want to leave and lose it.
The rooms are standard Residence Inn, but none of them have full stoves (which is not disclosed online). The staff was nice enough to let us use their oven one day to cook dinner, but kind of a hassle.
Breakfast was great and plentiful, with lots of seating inside and some outside. Weeknight happy hour food was lacking - one night was sad "sliders," mini burgers on stale buns. No cheese, lettuce or tomatoes, just mustard and catsup.
The outdoor pool and hot tub are nice too. A little awkward looking from the pool into the parking lot - wish there was some more privacy.
The art store on the bottom is a must visit. Unique items, and a great place to take kids. Every kind of Sharpie you could ever want.
They have built more restaurants and bars in the area over the last few years, which makes it much more convenient for picking up something for dinner.
Overall, a good choice, just be aware of the parking issue and high price.
