Residence Inn by Marriott ( Downtown )

We had a beautiful room which had recently been update. Large and spacious for my 3 friends and I. Quite hotel with no noise or rowdiness in the hallways. We were able to walk to all the restaurants we wanted to go to.

Positives: The fact that breakfast is included is a real plus. And the quality of the breakfast is really good.

Negatives: At first they told us there was no parking and we would have to use a parking meter.

Just lovely. Would stay there again. There was a lot of noise when bars got out. Really liked the idea of numbered parking spots for the room so you always knew your spot was available.

This is a beautiful hotel, unfortunately I was unable to get a good night sleep due to the noise on the street. I had to awake for an interview/training event at 6am and was unable to sleep until the bar down the street closed at 2. The staff was aware of the annoyance to guests but were unable to remedy the situation.

Positives: Nice room.

Negatives: The bar down the street that played loud music until 2am and kept me awake all night even after the hotel staff called the police on them.

Residence Inn by Marriott ( Downtown )

Roomy, clean, friendly with access to refreshments 24/7. Lacks natural decor i.e. plants, flowers and pool and it did not have a restaurant attached. Did not like the idea of having to pay for parking $19 a night. Less than desirable neighborhood.

Positives: Clean, friendly, convenient. Breakfast was included in the price.

Negatives: Lack of greeneries and flowers both inside and outside.
