Residence Inn has been one of my good choices for a long stay during my business trips to US as it provides Kitchen and other in room basic facilities. I had stayed in some of them in other states and thus choose this one while on a business visit as it was at a walking distance from my office. Overall this hotel property is okay however didn't give me the similar experience that I had in Florida or Chicago. The breakfast option and other manager's evening snacks was good however lacked personal staff attention that I would have seen in other such hotels. This property didn't even have an airport pick up or drop arrangements. The rooms while decorated in a similar manner like any other Residence Inns however the room sizes were smaller. The best part was that I managed to get a pool facing room otherwise the other rooms really do not have any visuals from the room's window.
The problem with this property was its constant changing of front desk staff and their lack of basic things. I stayed there for over 7-10 days however every alternate day, something or the other would happen with their key lock system and I had to go down for a new key late in the night. The area earlier never used to look safe for a new traveler since its isolated however with a new resturant near by now you atleast have some crowd. The good part is that at a walking distance you have lot of good resturants and eating places however lacks connectivity.
Other facility that I liked was their stacking up of the vending machine at the front desk with all the food which you could grab even late in the night incase you feel hungry and do not want to drive down. The resturant's staff was really impressive, she used to ensure to take personal care of the guests during break fast hours and that's something a lot of travellers liked. It had all the basic business facilities, like printing, a confernece room which we used for our multiple meetings, internet connectivity, a computer for guests to share and use.
However if I compare my next trip and my stay at the Hilton's near by, that's a hotel which I would probably recommend more unless you need a cooking facility in the room. Overall a decent stay but probably I would like to try some other one next time.
