I know my Residence Inns and I can tell you that the one in Hunt Valley, MD is the best there is--bar none! The management, front desk, housekeeping and maintenance staff are top notch. They are friendly and reactive to any concerns or needs you may have. I can say this with much experience. In the last 15 years I have spent 2,472 nights in just Marriotts. That is 6.77 years. And that does not count the many other hotels I have stayed in over the years either--Hiltons, Holiday Inns, Motel 6, Comfort Inns etc. As you can tell I travel a great deal for my job. I spent 7 1/2 months at the Residence Inn Hunt Valley and loved every minute of it. It is an exceptional hotel.
