On July 12th, I ran in my first ever race, while this may not seem pertinent to a hotel review, let me explain. As I stated previously, I just completed my first group, timed, monitored race. A race I thought I was ready for, but soon realized all my conditioning was well below par. The temperature rose to over 95 degrees, there was massive elevation gain, uneven sandy terrain, and I had to submit my body to the trail for over 6 hours. By the time I was finished, my body was hash. I could barely move, my knees wouldn't bend, I was on the verge of heat stroke, and I smelled horrible. The only golden light in my future, was the promise of a nice shower, and a soft bed.
Walking through the doors of The Residence by Marriott felt like walking through the golden gates, like Heaven on Earth. The hotel was clean, the staff at the front desk was pleasant, and there were ice cold containers of delicious beverages greeting us as soon as we walked in. I didn't think life could get any sweeter, until we walked into our room.
My group of racers chose to stay in a two bedroom suite, which was absolutely perfect. My husband kept referring to it it as "the apartment." The rooms were on either side of a joined living room/kitchen, and each room had its own bathroom. The room was spectacularly clean, as seemed to be one of the leading trends of the hotel, and the kitchen was very well stocked with all the necessary utensils. After six hours of racing, I have never found myself more comfortable and relaxed than I did that evening in our Residence Inn hotel room.
While I can't say enough good things about the room itself, my husband would disown me if I didn't mention the complimentary breakfast. First of all, the breakfast attendants were some of the most polite and helpful individuals I have ever met. Of course things only got better when my husband was able to have biscuits and sausage gravy alongside his scrambled eggs and freshly brewed coffee.
Yes, I would say our stay was a pleasant one. So pleasant I never once cried about the fact that it was also my first night away from my 20 month old daughter. We look forward to staying again and next time using more of the amenities, like the basketball court and well equipped fitness room.
