Residence Inn by Marriott is my favorite hotel. I travel about 7 days a month and prefer this hotel chain over any others. Always clean and every aspect of the room is comfortable. I love the layout of the room, the common areas of the hotel (eating area, firepit outside, workout room, pool, etc). Beautiful room that felt like an apartment. Very contemporary and like-new clean. GREAT layout and lots of space. The hotel is within a mile from many good restaurants - everything from Chipotle and Pei Wei to Outback and Carrabas. There is also a shopping plaza with many nice boutiques, clothing stores, gifts and services. The best hotel breakfast you'll find and it was free! They had fresh Begian waffles with all the toppings, many different cold cereals (even Special K!) and oatmeal with lots of toppings. Low-fat options like hard-boiled eggs and low fat yogurt. Hot items like sausage, gravy, biscuits and scrambled eggs with condiments like cheese and salsa. Many beverage options including gourmet coffee. If you are in a hurry, there is a to-go bag breakfast with fruit and a breakfast bar and drink. If you are there for an extended stay, they have a manager's reception during the week with complimentary dinner. They also will pick up your groceries free of charge. Even the little details like Paul Mitchell products in the bathroom and super soft towels. The kitchen has dishes and glassware and a full sized fridge and dishwasher. Staff is always helpful and friendly. If you need anything, just ask. I look forward to my trip back to Hunt Valley next November. GREAT value, too.
