My significant other and I stayed over the Labor Day weekend. We were debating between this property and some of the 4-5-star downtown hotels. We chose the Residence Inn based on the excellent review.
The suite was very spacious and very comfortable. It was nice and very convenient to have a separate living room area with kitchen. The furnishings were clean and modern, but not what I would call luxurious. It was nice to have a full set of dishware, although oddly the kitchenette had a sponge but did not have dish detergent. I also wished that they had a tea kettle (I called and asked but it was not available)
The bed was very comfortable and the double curtains kept out sunlight well in the mornings. The rooms were very quiet and we did not hear any hallway noise (we were on the 11th floor). Bathroom was again clean and comfortable but not luxurious. They use Paul Mitchell bath products.
The fitness center was nice, with LifeFitness machines and individual TV sets on the cardio machines. There is no swimming pool. Breakfast was ok - waffle maker, sausage patties, biscuits/gravy, scrambled eggs, yogurt/cereal. For some reason I thought there was an omelet station but they do not have one.
Overall, I would stay again if I had a family of multiple people or if I wanted to the convenience of extra space and a kitchen.
