We stayed four nights and used the kitchen each morning to make breakfast and a few times for dinner. Yes, the hotel did have a decent breakfast available, but it was nice to be able to make what we wanted when we wanted it, and enjoy items from the local farmers markets. Overall we enjoyed the extra space, and utility, which came at a premium price. On the down side the air conditioner was nosier then I expected but ultimately did not significantly impact our enjoyment. Also, the refrigerator was only able to achieve an acceptable temperature when set at the coldest setting. While the freezer section would freeze items in the middle setting the refrigerator was still around 60, and the fridge section should be 40 or less. If you are planning on cooking I would recommend you bring a few essentials including a frying pan, thermometer, a couple good knives, tongs, and basic cooking ingredients like oil, spices, etc. These items increase the utility of the kitchen and while the basic cooking tools were provided we all have our preferences. Overall a good experience which has convinced us the Residence brand of hotels is our preferred place to stay.
