We stayed here for nine nights as we were in town for a big international convention. That sort of event is incredibly tiring and so having the Residence to come home to was bliss. We had a one bedroom suite which had masses of space and a full kitchen (including a fridge with an icemaker - heavenly addition in 90...

I spent 5 nights here for business earlier this month and found the hotel to be recently renovated. It looks like it used to be a bank, with the old vault still at least partially intact. Breakfast was fine and typical of Residence Inns. While not on a high floor, whig is my preference, I received an upgrade to a...

Historic old bank building made into a Marriott Hotel. Great lobby... Look up at the ceilings! Very cool. The breakfast area is an old bank vault. Great service. Recommend splurging for the $20 valet service which was quick and handy. Lots of shops and restaurants close by. We would stay here again for sure!

The lobby and reception area is exceptional - an old bank building. The breakfast buffet was in the safe. From the moment we walked in and were greeted, the service was exceptional. The room was large, well equipped and comfortable. Everyone at breakfast greeted us and asked to be of help. I would definitely stay here again!

Staying here for a Thirty-One convention for 3 days. Staff has been helpful and super nice since we walked in the door. The rooms are very spacious and clean, there isn't much they don't have or you can't get from the little store. The Inn offers a pretty nice breakfast buffet, just get there early when the items are fresher....
