It's hard to criticise anything about this hotel. The reception staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and the room cleaning was exceptional, we could really tell when the maid had been in, all credit to her Residence Inn. As a dog friendly hotel it was amusing, and sometime surprising, to be sharing the lift with canines, but they caused no problems. The valet only parking is expensive @ $38 but there is a public parking lot right next door @ $25 if you don't mind a 2 minute walk. Free wifi and the "continental" breakfast was far more than that with eggs & bacon included.
After 2 weeks on a cruise ship, we decided to spread out a little for 5 nights in a one bed suite, comprising king bed, plenty of storage, full bath with excellent shower, lounge with table and chairs and a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, hot plate, toaster, dishwasher and utensils. No kettle ( naturally!) but it was easy to boil a pan of water for a nice cup of tea - ah! Although there are a gazillion restaurants on the doorstep, it was nice to just buy a salad and eat "at home" for a change. If we had any complaint it was that we couldn't open a window to get some fresh air into the room.
The 24 hour laundry is a great facility and the small pool was a lovely sun trap at the end of a tiring day, just beware selfish parents who let their kids scream uncontrollably in the water whilst others are trying to read/ snooze in the sunshine! Walking distance to everywhere around town and very easy to catch a bus or tram to go farther afield ( the zoo etc). highly recommended, wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thank you Residence Inn!
