tayed here whilst taking a course at MSU - chosen as it has kitchens in the studio rooms - well equipped, clean and tidy and peaceful. Easy walk to campus and close to some great restaurents - esp the sushi

Not sure why this place is called TownePlace Suites because basically it's a Residence Inn by Marriott. But all in all, you can't complain. The place is great for a short stay but even better for an extended stay. You have a full kitchen, nice work desk, pull-out couch, comfy bed, etc.

They have high-speed internet but it's NOT wireless, you have to hardwire in at the desk. Also a downer, there is no breakfast included and nothing nearby to get breakfast.

We paid $100 for a single night but that was on a football weekend at Michigan State so maybe it's cheaper during other times.

If you're visiting MSU, this is a wonderful place to stay. Although it's not quite as close to the central part of campus as the Marriott, it's close enough. The reception was very friendly and the room was spotless. Thre is plenty of parking, and there are several restaurants within walking distance (Hannah Plaza). We're already planning our next trip there.

We stayed in a two bedroom suite for four nights while we attended my nephew's wedding. We had the convenience of sharing a room with my parents and the privacy of separate bedrooms. It was more like home than a hotel since we had a living area to spend time in rather than use the beds as furniture to sit on, as in most hotel rooms. The personnel at the desk were very nice. We had a small problem getting the correct number of towels each day when the room was serviced, but the gentleman at the desk finally gave me enough washcloths for the rest of our stay that we could hide in the dresser...problem solved. Something that I read on the Marriott site said that each bedroom had a T.V. with remote, which we found not to be true. Only the larger bedroom had it's own T.V. I figure this was a general Towneplace Suites feature, that may not apply at all individual properties. In general we were very pleased with this facility and will definitely stay here again. The pool was a bit small, but still nice and the other features are just not available at most hotels.

The hotel was very clean and spacious. Hotel staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area and events that were happening. The hotel itself has a small outdoor pool. Guests of the hotel can purchase a day pass to the local athletic club for $8(which I thought was cool).
Our room was very clean,with comfortable beds. It was very quiet except for the noise from the trash compactor which was next door to our room. We did however only hear it 2x during our stay. It is also located on MSU property so the location is excellent. I would definately stay here again.

We stayed here for a 5 days during a conference my husband attended. We were in the B building on the first floor, in the back, with a view of the forest from our window. It was completely quiet and even the sounds of the other hotels guests were more muffled than I expected. We loved this hotel staff's willingess to respect our privacy. We requested daily that our room not be serviced while we were there, but did request that we have some amenities given to us--extra towels and coffee. It felt like being in a smaller version of home. We especially liked the fact that there was a dishwasher, stove and full-sized fridge to store the snacks one always craves late at night and in the morning. Even though there was a complimentary breakfast we preferred to have our own in the room This is the only hotel that I have stayed in that had an abundance of pillows . You are so close to MSU and also to some of the greatest shopping in the area. If you want to be comfortable and have some privacy, I highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for a week. It's more for longer term stayers and a "home away from home" and have all the cooking / food storage / eating / cleaning facilities in the room. I stayed in a studio suite and so it is one large room (sep. bathroom of course!) rather than having a separate bedroom. Room was fine, kitchen area seemed a little dark and was small.

I had recently moved from the nearby Candlewood Suites where I had a one bedroom suite which was a *little* more expensive so a like for like comparison may not be completely fair but I preferred Candlewood for the following reasons :

* Larger kitchen area
* Free use of laundry washers/driers (at Mariott it was $1.25 each machine I think)
* Candlewood has a small 24hr "Candlewood Cupboard" for food snacks (chips/muffins/drinks/pizza/pies etc). Mariott just has a couple of vending machines.
* Larger bathroom at Candlewood
* Candlewood had VCR with free video rental (from their selection)
* Better gym at Candlewood and you could also use some of MSUs facilities.

Having said all that, Mariott was a nice place to stay. They also had *free* wired internet connection to my laptop. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was nice but I had to leave the window open for a while after arriving as it still had lingering cooking odors from previous tenants!

I would recommend it and would also stay there again. It is also very quick and easy to get to the MSU campus.
