Easy access off I-69 on the southwest edge of Ft. Wayne, the hotel is attractively landscaped, making a first good impression. The lobby is clean and refreshing and roomy. The check in clerk was pleasant, but...we had to wait 10 to 15 minutes for the single clerk to take incoming phone calls before we got our room keys. We were the only guests checking in when we arrived. Another clerk showed up briefly, but soon diappeared. Please, let someone else answer the phones...

Our room was a $61 (plus $13 in fees and taxes) Priceline Express deal that seemed like a real bargain after walking into our first floor room. Very spacious with a king bed, L-shaped couch, several desks and a full kitchen. Stainless steel full sized refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, stove/oven and all the dishes and silverware one finds in a resort makes this place top value for the dollar. Unlike some hotels that are either too cold or too warm when you enter, we didn't even think about changing the wall mounted thermostat until our second day. One item that would enhance the enjoyment would be a flexible wall to close off the bedroom from the living/kitchen space. A very large (42"+) flat screen TV mounted on a desk between the bed and the living area swiveled 360 degrees, but could not be watched without bothering someone that might be in bed. The room contains a fireplace which we could not ge tto work. The front desk, upon checkout, said they would get it fixed.

It was very clean, with decor on the modern side. Sound proofing could be improved, a space under the entry door allowed light and sound to enter.

The free breakfast was fully satisfying, compete with fresh pineapple, hot scrambled eggs, sausage, cereals, yogurts, breads & pastries. Hot, fresh coffee was routinely resupplied. Other hotel guests were friendly and courteous. The eating spaces were roomy with more space between tables than chains usually provide. The decor was modern with tastefully coordinated color schemes between the carpets, floors and upholstry. Several tables in booths had private wall mounted TVs for entertainment for children.

The hotel provedes an outside fire pit and BBQ grill in landscaped surroundings, near the indoor pool and jacuzzi. The pool was posted to open at 9 AM, but it was 9:45 AM before it was ready to use. The pool water temperature was pleasant and the jacuzzi jets strong and "just right" temperature.

We need to return to the area in a month and will try to get the same deal.

Room Tip: Upgrades may be given if you are a Marriot member.

Where to start? Staff-5, Room-5, Breakfast-5, Location-5, Price for what you receive for this quality-5. As we travel in the future we will check-in a Residence Inn whenever possible.
We stayed 3 nights for a pleasure mini get away and Residence Inn surpassed our expectations.

Visited Ft. Wayne this week (Tuesday night/Wednesday morning) for the Vera Bradley Sale and stayed at the Residence Inn. Really enjoyed our stay. Very friendly and helpful staff and management. Suites were comfortable and clean and the happy hour and breakfast service were a great bonus! The staff person in charge of our breakfast was especially helpful explaining how the Vera Bradley sale worked and providing coupons for free entry for myself and my party. Will definitely return!

We love this hotel! We stay here every year when we come to fort wayne for the vera bradley sale! 4 of us share a room. I'm one of 2 that sleeps on the sleeper sofa and it is comfortable! The hotel staff is amazing! And the staff seems to stay the same without a lot of change in personnel. Nice hot tub. The pool is cold but nice! Very easy access to the highway and lots of eating n shopping close by.

Room Tip: Some rooms are pet friendly! No smell of dogs or smoke

We stayed while the hotel was under renovation. The renovation area was separate from where actual guests were staying. The pool area was closed so we were offered to utilize the pool at a neighboring hotel. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The renovated rooms were exceptionally nice. The breakfast along with the breakfast area was very nice. Would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

I recently stayed one night at the Residence Inn in Fort Wayne. I originally close this hotel because it was the closest Marriott property to the Fort Wayne airport. I always forget how much I enjoy extended stay hotels even if only staying for one night. There is just more space to spread out and work. This hotel was extra great because it is going through a major renovation and the room was totally redone. It was clear there is still work going on in the hotel but it didn't bother me one bit. The check in staff was very friendly and helpful. My room was huge with a separate bedroom and living area. I didn't use the mini kitchen at all but it had everything needed to cook and clean there if you were staying for a long time. The free wifi worked fast and there are two desks to spread out and work out. The bed was very comfortable and I had a really good night sleep. In the morning there is a free continental breakfast which you don't always find at extended stay hotels.
As far as location, the property is a few miles from the airport, but there is really nothing closer. There are a bunch of other hotels, restaurants and shops nearby and so there was plenty of dinner choices.
I really enjoyed my stay here, and would absolutely stay again if for one night or a week or more when in the Fort Wayne area.
