Having been a member of Marriott rewards for 15+ years, I only stay at Marriott brands. This hotel is a great combination of comfort and convenience with a touch of 'upscale' thrown in. While I don't completely understand the need for an extended stay hotel in the downtown tourist area, I did appreciate their bar with sidewalk seating for a post-drive wind down. And the complementary appetizer (loyalty reward) of homemade chips and onion dip was a nice touch. The free breakfast was standard Marriott, but the staff during breakfast was exceptional. They continually re-stocked food items and paid close attention to keeping tables clean and available.
The only reasons for the 4 stars were the somewhat uncomfortable bed and the $40/day parking charge. Residence Inns should replace all beds with those used at Fairfield Inns. And I'd suggest that hotel guests receive a discounted parking rate vs. the public rate.
That said, it was nice to be able walk to nearby sites and restaurants.
