I'm a frequent traveler to the Sante Fe Springs/Buena Park area for business, and was quite happy with the Norwalk Marriott (now re-branded to some independent hotel). Wanting to stay in the Marriott family I gave the Residence Inn a go.
Service is friendly, and it's hard to miss them in the relatively crowded lobby/business center/breakfast buffet & happy hour area. Elbow room gets tight at peak breakfast hour and happy hour. Options at breakfast are adequate but relatively limited compared to other Residence Inn's. Happy hour spread is standard - burgers, hot dogs, potato chips, etc.
The property and rooms are clean, but "tired." Beginning to show age, especially the meeting rooms. And the outside access to your room is a sketchy touch. At two floors only, the property is pretty spread out, so you can have a little walk in the morning and evening. Highway noise is an issue if you are at the front of the property pointed in the right [wrong] direction. Standard accommodation for a Residence... kitchen, living, bedroom and bathroom.
Small workout room that only had two treadmills, one elliptical and dumbbells. Only one functioning treadmill... seems I could make a fortune opening a business to service Marriott exercise equipment...
Overall an okay value for the area at $124/night. My colleague is high on the Anaheim Marriott, so I'll be giving that a try next.More
