Had read some "negative" reviews citing that the oilfield boom had left the rooms worn and in need of some repairs..some even involved photos. That was not our experience at all. Our room was perfect. I can't even name one problem with it at all. Everything seemed updated and clean..wish other hotels were that lovely!
Hot breakfast every morning was also a delightful surprise. First day's breakfast was an omelet with sharp cheddar on top and gruyere inside, potatoes, link sausage. Plenty of other options for others such as "plain" scrambled eggs, oatmeal, etc. The second day was even better. The chef had prepared another fresh omelet with FRESH jalapeno (not the jarred stuff), ham, onions, tomatoes, different type of potatoes and sliced ham on the side. Not the same ol', same ol' every morning.
When we checked in Friday afternoon, the check in counter had bags of trail mix and fresh, moist chocolately brownies in a huge glass container. There was an Italian jar of cucumbered ice water on a credenza next to it. They also handed you two bottles of chilled bottle water as you walked away from check in. Sunday a.m. they had honeydew ice water in the Italian jar. (Sorry, wasn't there during the day Saturday to give you that flavor of the day). Staff at front desk, kitchen and housekeeping were all friendly and efficient.
When we got in our room, we found a calendar of events/food for the month. Children's events, museum trips and the really big surprise--it appears that they have fresh meals every evening Monday-Thursday nights. It appeared that the evening meal was "gratis". I told my husband, The Working Man, if his company ever considered sending him on a long term assignment, he needed to suggest Residence Inn for his stay.
I would have no hesitation in staying here again, nor recommending it to anyone. Obviously, any issues the hotel has had in the past have been handled by management.
