I recently stayed at the Residence Inn Downtown and I enjoyed my stay but mostly because it’s a great location. This old girl is ready for a refresh in the physical plant.
The hotel is located along the canal and there is direct access from the lower level - and this is a great place to stroll and perhaps rent one of the ubiquitous scooters.
The front desk was friendly and efficient and room was plenty big enough, although not a typical layout for a Residence Inn.
The free breakfast on the main level was good and plenty of food to fuel you for the day. Only downside is - it was tough for the staff to keep up when they got slammed on a busy Saturday morning. This is probably preventable with better management and staffing.
At the end of the day, it was a fine place to stay, the price was right and the location was awesome. A little paint and plaster and they’ll hit 5 star territory More
