We stayed here a few years ago, and we really like the Norwood location. The Residence Inn is surrounded by a nice walking area (and a pond!) and it is an easy walk to nearby restaurants. Whenever, we can choose not to drive, we are happy. This visit, we had a very nice clean room, and we found the staff at the front desk especially helpful and friendly. We needed some extra items in our room and as it was evening, I went downstairs to ask for them. Five minutes later, I went back upstairs and I had all the needed items with me. When we asked if there was an easier way to get to the Fine Arts Museum in Boston (have been there four times, and have gotten lost four times!), directions were drawn up to lead us to the commuter train and everything explained on how to make this an easy outing. And it was! Could not find the tiniest fault about the front desk staff. They were super !
Breakfast is included, and it is an okay breakfast with quite a few choices. We stayed there 5 nights, and every morning there was something different on the buffet. Also, they have what they call a "Social Hour" on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. FREE DINNER !!! It is called "Social Hour" but very few guests sit in the dining room. Most just load up trays and take them to their rooms. And this was the only unpleasant aspect of our stay here. No one is there to supervise (everything is set up and it's self-service), so TOO many people come in and take TOO much, leaving almost nothing for those sitting there. We saw one big guy come in and load ALL the brownies (there were at least 3 dozen on the tray!) into a Styrofoam container and take them back to his room. Nobody wants to challenge these rude people, but then again, it is so unfair to those of us who came to eat in the dining area. Another person came with a plastic shopping bag and loaded up all the bagels and Philadelphia Cream Cheese packets into the bag, and then took them out to his car. What's with these people? They were all guests at this hotel, yet they acted as if they were starving to death. We have never encountered this type of situation anywhere else.
There is only one elevator here for so many rooms, yet there does not seem to be a problem. All waits are short. Pets are welcome here, and we saw quite a few very well behaved four legged guests.
