Spent 5 days at the Residence Inn in October and was very pleased with the entire experience. We had six women and a 17 month old in a two bedroom suite and it was more than enough room. We never cooked in the room, but filled our fridge to the brim. What a help that was with a small toddler. The coffee maker was a plus as well.
The morning breakfast buffet is the best selling point of this hotel. The plethora of food provided was beyond amazing. Even better was being able to sit and enjoy it by the "waterfall" or take it back to the room.
The location is great. Driving to the hotel was a breeze from the airport. Parking is underground, and while it's $25 a day, at least you don't have to worry about your vehicle. The trolley stop is literally a short walk away and it takes you to very convenient drop off locations (even Whole Foods for shopping). One thing that I do wish was closer was a non-fancy restaurant. Yes there are a ton of places to eat right at South Lake Union, but nothing super kid friendly.
Only complaints about the whole stay/hotel: The pool is NOT heated. This was a big surprise and led to an upset toddler. The pool itself is nice, its keep in mind it's cold in winter. Only other issue was the crib. My son refused to sleep in it as it was very squeaky and the mattress was lumpy.
But seriously, other than those two issues, this place is FAB!!!!
