The Residence Inn has spacious and clean accommodations with a kitchenette and dining area. The bed was very comfortable (slept like a log). It is a short walk to many restaurants, shops, and the shore. The only negatives: windows overlooked other rooms at close proximity, forcing us to close the drapes upon check in, and a fishy smell that left...

Had a wonderful couple days in this hotel. Some of the rooms were under renovation but noise was kept to a minimum. Room was comfortable and clean the buffet breakfast was ample and fresh. Would stay again if in town.

Excellent rooms, very clean and spacious. Having a kitchenette was wonderful. We were upgraded to a water view, but I wouldn't reccomend it as it is mostly a view of construction going on in the parking lot across the street. A little farther from old port than I would have liked to be.

Was awesome. Spectacular view of the harbor. Will return often. Special thanks to the Hotel Staff....Especially for the snow and the fireworks ;-). Every aspect was perfect. Housekeeping, amenities. We will be back soon. Could not ask for better place to spend the Holiday. Close to great restaurnts, shopping and the ferry to the islands. I doubt there is a...

This Hotel has it all. Great location, staff and amenities. It is easy to get to. Park your car and walk to everything. Great restaurants(Fore Street, Duckfat and Eventide), bakeries(Two Fat Cats) and sites (Old Port) are all an easy walk from the hotel. The rooms all have kitchens so you can store food (left overs from the restaurants )....

This was a great stay! Super friendly staff. Whit was very friendly and greeted me by name anytime he saw me. Room had kitchenette and living area, then a separate bedroom. Slept great. Very clean. Great shower. Free breakfast with pretty good quality food-eggs, sausage, pastry, cereal, fruit, waffles, etc. My only complaint is that breakfast was busy/crowded, but staff...

Nice, well kept hotel with clean, usual residence inn style rooms and larger gym. Did a nice job handling the chaos of standard RI breakfast each day we were there. Housekeeping friendly. As observed by other reviewers, check-in was a bit of a hassle and you get the feeling that housekeeping is not directed based on expected daily volume or...

While the hotel feels a bit tucked away from the action, it is just a few minutes from all of the great shops and restaurants in the area. So much is within walking distance! The elevators are quick, so you are not waiting for long. The room was very well appointed and very spacious though the view wasn't great. The...

The location cannot be beat. Next door to Shipyard Brewery and close to lots of cool restaurants. We went to Duck Fat and Eventide Oyster Co. Both were amazing. Within walking distance to the Old Port, but situated in a quieter area. Only thing I didn't care for was the breakfast selection. Would have been nice to have more homemade...

Stayed here on the weekend for the third time or so. It's clean and we like the rooms with the full kitchenette and fridge. Close to Duckfat and several other restaurants. Quick walk to shops etc for beer and snacks. Also a couple grocery stores etc around the corner and it's next to Shipyard Brewery. Probably the reason we stay...
