“Great location - ok for a short stay. This place is a mixed bag.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

My family of 4 lived here for 60 days while relocating. The Suite was large and comfortable. We had a 2 level suite which was nice. The loft bedroom is not safe for young children - the bed sits against a waist high overlook of the 1st level. The suite is not good for folks who have trouble with stairs. Kitchen is very good.

Staff were not good about cleaning, it was hard to get them to vacuum or do much more than quick cleaning. The longer we stayed the more of a problem this was as the place got gross.

Breakfast was pretty good (though monotonous), though the eating area was over full a lot of mornings. The eating area is vey small for the size of this complex. Often there were bus loads of folks staying here - they would eat at the same time.

Desk staff were typically polite and helpful. Location is very convienient to the metro link station which makes it a good place to go to ball games downtown.

Hello Tim,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. We very much enjoyed having you and your family stay with us for nearly 2 months back in June of 2012. I can promise that we have focused on the cleanliness of our long term suites in the past year. We do try and make sure that those guests receive the same Housekeeping attention that our guests staying 3 nights receive.

Thanks again for reviewing our hotel and I hope you and your family are settled in nicely now.

The wife had business in St Louis and we booked a week at the Resident Inn as they are pet friendly, a pleasant side note, everyone here is friendly. This facility is perfectly located within walking distance of the beautiful mall, the Galleria, and several wonderful free standing shops, as well as more than a few fantastic dining opportunities. Our accommodations were perfect, clean and well appointed. Early in the week they provide a 5 to 7 pm snack and beverage social time and each morning a breakfast bar, well stocked to suit most every need, including fresh eggs and a side of meat, sausage, ham or bacon, and coffee is available all day. It was a perfect setting for our week.

We stayed in penthouse. The thermostat is for upstairs and downstairs. The upstairs gets to warm while the downstairs is to cool. Loft bedroom is open. You must pay extra for log for fireplace. The hotel staff is great. The breakfast is wonderful, hot, eggs, sausage, waffles...etc. The beds were comfortable. The area is wonderful for shopping. We received day passes for nearby aquatic center. I gave the hotel four stars because it is nice, clean and had a great breakfast. Our problem was the thermostat and the openness of the loft trying to sleep. Otherwise it is nice, very nice!

Room Tip: If you have more than four go with double rooms instead of penthouse.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. We are thrilled that you enjoyed our stay and found the hotel nice and clean and that you enjoyed our free breakfast buffet each morning. We do have ceiling fans in our bi-level Penthouse units in an effort to circulate the heat throughout the room....I think that might do the trick for you next time.

Thanks again for reviewing our hotel and we hope to see you again!

This place is newly renovated. The reason I rate my stay average because for some reason we had a lot of noise going on in the area. There was a party and I could hear the people behind us. Also the same breakfast was served the next day and the dinning area was small.
The location is great. Not far from the interstate. Also you could walk to public transportation (if needed to) and places to eat and shop.

Room Tip: Great location if you want to be near St. Louis and a very populated but not too busy area.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. We are glad that you loved the location of our hotel, but we are very sorry about the surrounding noise that you heard. Unfortunately every once in a while there are guests that make noise while staying with us and we do our best to take care of that issue before they can disturb other guests. We are truly sorry that you were disturbed.

Thank you again for reviewing our hotel!

We were pleased to find the rooms had been renovated. We called maintenance regarding trouble with the Internet and they were friendly, responsive and very quick. The kids were impressed with the two story suite and we've stayed in a LOT of Residence Inns and Homewood Suites. The evening meals (weekdays) and breakfast were exactly as you'd expect at a Residence Inn. I'd definitely stay here again when we return. Easy walk to public transportation, shopping and dining. We like to go for a run in the mornings and a nice little neighborhood backs up to the "Inn" making it very convenient and pleasant.

Room Tip: I always choose the top floor - no foot traffic noise

We stayed for one night and found the location to be excellent--within walking distance of shops and restaurants, convenient to public transportation and the highway. The rooms have been recently renovated and were very nicely upgraded. The breakfast was your standard fare, but in a well-appointed common room. Every staff member we encountered was very helpful. Overall, it was a delightful stay and I would not hesitate to book this hotel again!

The check-in front staff person was wonderful, very friendly and outgoing. She was very very nice. The room was clean and fairly comfortable although the mattress in the king size bed should be tossed out - quite lumpy and not a typical Marriott quality. The sofa pullout bed was not at all comfortable so the second night my son slept on the sofa skipping the pull out part. He said it was a better night sleep that way. The kitchen was very nice, the appliances were new and clean and the silverware, dishes etc were all good/decent quality and in good condition. Nothing was broken or damaged.

The major criticism I have with the place is really the condition of the grounds. I noticed a lot of debris around, cigarettes in ash trays that had obviously been sitting around for a long long time.

The breakfast area was clean and had plenty of selection of food - despite being crowded on a Sunday AM. I did not eat there on the second day of a two night trip. The workout room is tiny - one bike, one elliptical and one treadmill. I also liked the free wi-fi.

Hello ADK,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. I am sorry that your stay was not perfect, but am very glad to hear that you found the staff to be friendly and outgoing. All of our mattresses were recently replaced with 9 inch standard Marriott mattresses, but I will make sure that we check on your mattress and see what the issue was. I can also promise that we are doing our best to make sure the grounds are cleaned up daily. We are constantly working to make sure our 4 acre property is clean and free of debris. We would love to see you again and give us a chance to show you how clean the area is. Thanks again for staying with us.
