I was here for 5 nights the end of Jan 2012 to beginning of Feb 2012. Everything was very good. Free breakfast with a lot of seating. Location is adjacent to Redmond Town Center, allowing for walking access to shops and dining. Their store (Market) had a larger selection than I'm used to. The studio suites are a good size with a fold out couch, desk, regular size fridge, convection microwave, two electric burner stovetop, dishwasher, and plenty of dishes/pans/utensils. This is designed well for extended stays, but still great for short stays.
A couple bonuses I'd like to note:
-The cleaning staff sometimes does a little extra. One day I cam back and my bathroom items (shaver, toothbrush, etc.) were nicely laid out on a towel for me rather than the mess I left them in.
-They will put any used dishes they notice in the dishwasher and run it for you so you will probably have a full stock of clean dishes each evening.
-I had a small stuffed animal with me from my wife that they nicely placed on the bed after making the bed.
And a couple minor things to keep in mind:
-They did mention (and I confirmed) that the main elevator closest to the main entrance is rather slow. I like high floors, so sometimes it took a while to come back down. It might be better to use the second elevator further away if you have a high floor.
-The parking is restricted to guests, so keep you key card handy if you have a car so you can get into the parking area.
Overall, it was great. Nothing major came up, so my only required interaction with the front desk was checking in. I did notice that they plan to redo the lobby (even though I don't think it's needed) so maybe that will be done the next time I have to head to Redmond.
