This was my second stay at a Marriott Residence Inn (the other in Denver) and this hotel was even nicer.
I went with a group of girlfriends to the hotel and we had a great time. One night we were in a corner suite and the next we had a second room since some people only came up for the second night.
The corner room was much bigger and had a larger kitchen area with island. The standard room just had a kitchenette nook.
Check in was quick and the front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating during our stay.
The kitchen had a dishwasher and refrigerator and burner. it was stocked with coffee, tea, silverware, paper towels, plates, glasses, soap, can opener, wine glasses etc. We were in a group and they quickly brought up more wine glasses.
There is also a living area with tv and a pullout couch. The bedroom had a king bed. There was plenty of closet space.
The bathroom had double thanks, a glass shower, and high end toiletries.
I had the short straw so had to sleep on a cot one night and the pullout the other. I've yet to sleep on a comfortable pullout and this one was no different. However the cot was, without exaggeration, the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept on. if I had pulled up the sheets I wouldn't be surprised if it was a granite slab. Since it was a short stay it wasn't a big deal but if you are in a larger group you should take turns in who gets the cot.
The hotel also provided a breakfast buffet which was more than adequate. There were bagels, waffles, cereal, yogurt, eggs, bacon, etc. Nothing gourmet but it hit the spot.
Location of the hotel was great. There is a municipal lot for parking $.75 an hour and you are in close walking distance to plenty of shops and restaurants.
