We stayed for two nights in room 202 in the Residence Inn. The hotel is very new and is currently clean and quiet. The room is very spacious and has a very nice kitchenette. The courtyard area was excellent and, as our room was right by the stairs, we often walked down and out the side door to play cards or read books in the covered seating area.
The breakfast buffet was very well done, but I was astounded at how much food people piled on to their plates and then left, uneaten Sad, but not the hotel's fault. Good variety with great scrambled eggs, different breakfast meat each day, potatoes or pancakes, fresh waffles, porridge, fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries, many juices and so on.
The location is great. Just a block from the river walk and two blocks from public transit. A bit hard to get to from the airport, but it just requires a transfer. If you have heavy luggage, it may be better to take a taxi from the Max station.
The staff really tries hard. They appear to be a bit short of people and we waited about 30 minutes to check out while the one staff member was bringing out stored luggage for a very large group of people, but you could see the effort that was being made. The hotel was also sold out that week, so they were working very hard.
The rooms were clean and quiet, but that could be because they were new. I hope the cleaning staff does a good job of keeping them look that way. There was a tiny bit of grime building up in the corners of the shower. Sorry, just getting picky.
Overall, the visit was very good, quiet, pleasant, and definitely worth the money.
