“AWESOME...Much, much more than I (we) expected....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2007

First, let me start by acknowleding the fact that Laredo is not Las Vegas...or Los Angeles...or Houston for that matter. With this out of the way, I was born in Laredo and visited my relatives every summer after moving away. Fast forward 20+ yrs, I return with wife and child for a funeral. Wife is very skeptical about coming, in light of all the violence that is reported in Nuevo Laredo and fearing for the safety of our child. I tried to find a hotel that is "nice" and ran into the Residence Inn website. Looked nice on the pics, but we all know pictures dont always tell the whole story. Well, in this case, they didn't tell the whole story either. They left out the FANTASTIC staff! The very, very clean hotel! The super clean and modern rooms!!! This was a hell of a find!!! Right next door is a very upscale looking Chinese restaurant. Also, you are on the freeway which puts you minutes from everything. Everything!! We got on the freeway, u-turned and were at the International Bridge in less than 10 minutes. Very cool. The big mall there, Mall DelNorte, is 2 minutes from the hotel. Needless to say, wife and kid had a great time (aside from our reason for being there). Little story to emphasize my point about the staff...I called down to the front desk to ask about a local Ticketmaster (we needed to buy tix for an event in Houston). The front desk person, Maria, thought there was a Ticketmaster in Dillards or Macy's. Anyhow, 2 minutes later she called up to our room to let us know that she called Macy's and they did have a ticketmaster that opened at 10:00. I'm just not used to that kind of personal customer attention.
I know that sometimes when I look at these reviews I like to find out what's near the hotel. Well, aside from the mall which has everything, we had breakfast at Denny's (there is a free breakfast at the hotel), and a heck of dinner at Outback Steakhouse (all on the Southbound feeder). Oh yeah....all this for 89$/night! We robbed them blind. Enjoy, we did.

Stayed January 2007

It was wonderful! I had never stayed there, but the rooms are very big, like a studio suite with a fully equipped kitchen, after a full day of shopping it is great to come in here and relax with some tidbits from the supermarket rather than sitting in a restaurant.
Would definetely stay again.
