“Brand new property whose social hour lacks - But still great value”
Reviewed February 9, 2010

We had an overall great stay at this practically brand new Residence Inn. Having stayed in them in other cities, we knew what to expect (full kitchen, suite, etc) and were a bit skeptical knowing it was a chain Marriott property. One of the things that is so great about the White Mountain region is the variety of charming places with character to stay, but for $80 a night, we stuck with the Marriott property knowing we were on a budget and would get our points.

What we didn't expect was how modern the room was - it was really nice. I think we expected the more traditional RI furnishings. We arrived right at 3 and asked if there was a fireplace suite available. There was but it wouldn't be ready for another hour. So they took down our number and vowed to ring us when it was available - and they did. Plus upgraded us at no charge which was great. Muncy at the front desk was so nice and accommodating.

The room was spacious and we liked that the toilet/bath/shower was separate from the vanity area. Nice big flat screen TVs in living and bedrooms. First night's ammenity package that is supposed to be in every room was nice, but there was no microwave popcorn. Called to front desk and a lady said she had no idea what we were talking about (although the Guest Services book states it is included) but would make a note to make sure we had some for day #2. We had cheddar already bagged popcorn left by housekeeping the next day.

I think we were expecting a social hour (manager reception) comparable to the Embassy Suites because we have experienced better ones at RI in other cities, but it was a huge disappointment. The wine was Wal-Mart's $3 bottle which we had tried before and knew it was sorely lacking, and they had 2 kinds of beer. The appetizers were a bowl of nuts, and very small plates of cheese, crackers, tiny sweets and soup - which was probably the best part of the social hour as the soup was hot and tasty.

We ate a great roast beef sandwich at a place recommended by the staff, Belly Stuffers (just a mile or two down from the hoetl) and an even better roast beef sandwich a few days before at a place 15 miles or so south of North Conway called Kelli's Place - a lime green hole in the wall place that was fantastic! Ate at the Muddy Moose which is a cool place on the north side of town and of course our favorite breakfast spot - Peaches - also on the main street, but closer to downtown. Hands down the best breakfast around! (The banana and brown sugar pancakes were unbelievable.) Then we came back from Peaches and worked off our breakfast in the nicely equipped fitness room.

Free Hi Speed internet is always a nice touch.

We love North Conway and vacation here frequently from Texas and would recommend the Residence Inn whole heartedly.

Over 30 years I've stayed in just about everyone hotel, resort, inn in the North Conway area. This is the first time in a long time I can say our stay was beyond our expectations. From the greeting by the front desk staff, who made you feel like family, the warm inviting lobby area, breakfast, nightly snacks, daily cookies and rooms, this is now the only place for us. We traveled with my Dad and had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath which was seperated by a livingroom/kitchen which was so enjoyable, (great if traveling with children or another couple), beautifully decorated, spacious, what more can I say. Oh sorry, did I forget the most important part, SPOTLESS! Did not use the indoor pool/whirlpool but looked very nice and larger than at most Residence Inns. Location was great. If you like to walk you have a lot of options w/in walking distance which is nice. Otherwise, you are a short drive to just about everthing. Thank you Residence Inn for making our weekend a true pleasure.

We checked into the residence inn and were immediately greeted with amazing service and a gorgeous lobby!! Things did not end there. The suite we had rented was an amazing deal. $100 for an apartment that was beautifully decorated and furnished. Everything was perfect...a great mixture of functionality and romance.

The next morning we had a great complimentary breakfast...

If you are heading to North Conway....this is the place to stay!

Place was amazing, Like a mini apartment. Super clean bcause it was new. Only place I have ever showered without flip flops. Staff was friendly including maid service. Definitely worth the money. Small kitchen - everything you need. A small living room area, with a spin around tv in case you want to watch from bed. Great for a ski weekend getaway. Ski lockers available outside - make sure you bring your own lock!

We stayed during this past weekend 1/22 through 1/24 in a 1 Bedroom King suite with a fireplace.

The Marriott Residence Inn in North Conway, NH is a very modern hotel with very beautiful contemporary decor in your guest room and through out the hotel. I especially loved the separate desk area and modern kitchen with granite counters throughout the suite. Friday night after check-in I was able to make a quick delicious nutrious meal while the family relaxed watching the large flat screen TV and enjoyed the free wireless internet service (which was very good as well). Some Marriott hotels are now providing the option for upgrading the wireless to allow better access for VPN (this was not offered here as far as I could tell). The bedroom was exceptionally beautiful with the recessed lighting, soothing atomosphere and modern furniture. The built-in gas fireplace added ambience to the living room as well as some extra heat! I noticed that the bedroom seemed a tad bit cooler though when the fireplace was off. Not a problem with heating during the evening though! In fact I was a tad bit warm (if needed ask for an extra blanket... they will accommodate). I did NOT notice a noisy heating system like others reported.

Other than the granite counters the bathroom was pretty basic. The shower was not as hot as I would have liked it.

The pool area was immaculate! The hot tub was very warm, clean, and relaxing. Plenty of towels and the pool boy checks on the area constantly! Nice lounge chairs to relax in too. If you want to bring a beverage to the pool bring your own plastic cups (as there is not any in the room).

The 24 hour gym is AWESOME! There are 2 treadmills, 2 ellipiticals, a stair climber, weights and 2 different types of bicycles. All in a modern large space with plenty of room to SPREAD OUT!

There is a small business center which is near the elevators. The only complaint about this is that it isn't very private... so beware if you are typing in personal information. The lobby has a wonderful fireplace and plenty of seating. There are some semi-private areas with TVs. I would suggest they move the business center to this area.

The "Free" Breakfast was GREAT! I loved the blueberry "make your own" waffles with fruit topping. They also had scrambled eggs, sausage links, hash browns, and several other continental items (e.g., bagels). Plenty of coffee and juice too!

During the mid afternoon -- delicious chocolate / white chocolate chip cookies were served during our stay! They offer other night time features during the week.

The only complaint for this stay is that our room was never "made up" on Saturday!!! I never saw a cleaning attendant on our floor the whole day on Saturday. This made it a problem and had to constantly run to the front desk to get supplies. The trash was overflowing by the time we left. No laundry bags either. They could use a cookie sheet as well.

Pets are allowed! We brought ours and they really enjoyed the new "For Your Paws Only" store which is located in the next lot.

This hotel is also about location, location, location! This hotel is minutes away from Mt. Cranmore and Outlet shopping!

We just got back from a stay at the Residence Inn. This is a great hotel. We stayed in a Studio Suite, which had a king bed, pullout sofabed, and a small kitchen. The hotel was very clean, helpful staff. We did use the indoor pool, which was great in the middle of winter. They also have a great breakfast buffett in the morning.

Anyone who gets to spend a few nights in this wonderful new hotel is guaranteed to have a great stay in North Conway. From the moment we entered the lobby and were greeted by the afternoon desk manager, Stuart, we felt like family. The entire mood of our our trip was set by the incredible disposition of this staff. Throughout our week in NH my kids kept saying how great New Hampshire people are and I know it all eminated with the many friendly and fun conversations we had with the folks at the Marriott front desk. Very rarely do you find such good people that you really connect with. The management even arranged lobby events that brought guests together for finger food and conversation - I truly have not seen this type of B&B style warmth in a big hotel before but it exists at this Marriott. The rooms are immaculate with kitchenettes and fireplaces and 2 tvs. The hotel is centrally located and we did things near (Cranmore Mountain) and far (Kankamagus to Loon Mountain, and Route 302 to Maine)...... and we were always thrilled to return to our friendly hotel and our immaculate, perfectly heated room with its always hot shower. The pool was great too as were the morning breakfasts. Again, this is a new Marriott so it is amazing. We loved this hotel!
