I readily return to this standard mid-range Marriott property, with its personable staff who remember guests and offer a warm welcome (they are exceptional even for Marriott, which has a strong track record for quality staff, in my experience).
It may be a stretch to call these suites; the floor plan is a studio: good-sized room with a fine walk-in shower and vanity/sink; commode with sink in a separate room; well-designed desk and sitting area with flat-screen TV and free Internet; and a nook with microwave, one-cup coffee-maker, and small fridge. By comparison, Homewood Suites and Residence Inns have separate bedroom/living room and full kitchens, but a lesser bathroom lay-out.
Those chains offer more extensive breakfast, and dinner a few nights a week; Springhill Suites' breakfast is adequate, if unexceptional, served in a space that can get crowded. On the other hand, fresh-baked cookes are on offer most evenings. The place is always immaculate, parking is generous, and there's a pool and small exercise room.
One major plus is location - on a quiet side street, it's moments from Rt 32, I-95, Rt 29, and the Baltimore-Washington Pkwy (Rt 295). Numerous restaurants are within a mile, and several shopping centers and movie complexes, including Columbia Mall, are an easy drive. A special attraction: the Daedalus Books warehouse and discount sales room is a 5-minute walk from the front door.
