First off, know that I have high status in the Marriott chain. As a Residence Inn goes, this is the old style layout (more condo like) and candidly my favorite.
The room wasn't ready when I got there (it was early) but staff did everything they could to make me feel welcome. Elizabeth especially went out of her way to work with me in arranging the room and the second room which I had gotten for my family the second day. There was a small issue with that second room the next day (Elizabeth had left) but staff immediately took care of it.
The room are updated, comfortable and quiet (at least in the back half) and the breakfast is pretty good. Staff is very helpful and the location is central.
I enjoyed every bit of this stay. It isn't a resort, if that is what you are looking for then move on, but if a solid stay, in a central location that is comfortable is what you are looking for, then it is perfect. I should note that it appears sold out all the time, tells me something about it.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
