I travel often and always stay at Marriott properties where they're available. This Residence Inn receives my "Best of the Best" Award for numerous reasons. The staff is fantastic. This includes the food and beverage folks (who by the way, often times grill outdoors in the evening, and have fresh coffee made at 05:15!) all the way up to the front desk staff. The hotel is extremely clean and the rooms are fresh smelling so I must commend the housekeeping staff. The property is located in a perfect setting in College Station. It's slightly off the main road so the hotel is quiet, but it's still within walking distance of a wide variety of restaurants. And don't worry about an early arrival. If there are rooms available, they'll get you in one. I'm hoping that the hotel will add an airport shuttle some day. This would be a huge benefit to many of my colleagues who fly in. I highly recommend this Marriott property if you're wanting an exclusive Residence Inn.
