We won a bid on priceline for this hotel on a Friday night for a great rate! The location is convenient to both Routes 93 and 495, set back in a nicely landscaped office park. The classic, New England architecture makes for an appealling, warm first impression. Beautiful flowers and shrubs abound near the entrance.
Check-in isn't officially till 4 pm, which is a tad later than most hotels. Often one can check into rooms earlier, but at 2:30 there wasn't anything available. Fair enough, but we returned at 3:30 and after a call to a housekeeper to confirm that a room was clean we were able to check in.
The room was perfect and had a good layout. There was a comfortable bed with contemporary linens, a pullout sleeper sofa, work desk with comfortable chair and a very nicely equipped kitchenette. There is free wifi for those with laptops. The hotel provides a welcome basket with tea, coffee, and microwave popcorn (nice touch). Cable tv had plenty of channels. Bathroom was updated and everything was clean.
Residence Inn offers a breakfast buffet that is very satisfying with eggs, sausage, waffles, whole grain cereals, fresh pineapple, yogurt, bagels, and muffins. There is something to please all. My one criticism about the breakfast area is that seating is tight and tables are too close together; furthermore, the staff seems oblivious to the need of wiping down tables after diners leave -- tried to do my best with wet napkins, but not the same thing.
Desk personnel were cordial and pleasant; they kindly gave us toothbrushes which we had forgotten to pack. Much appreciated!
I was also pleased with the outdoor swimming pool which was well maintained and refreshing. Lounge chairs were comfortable and there were plenty of towels on hand.
It seems to me that whether one stays at the Residence Inn for either business or leisure, one cannot go wrong.
