Residence Inn New Rochelle
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in New Rochelle
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

My wife and I visited the city for the weekend and we stayed here which I have done numerous times before. I used to like the free parking (now a 10 dollar charge) and how close it was to the train (which has gone up since last time I was there) the hotel itself is nice and if your trip is to new rochelle I say stay there but if your using the hotel to commute into the city and back I think now that they charge for parking and that the train costs more you can stay in the city for the same cost with less time absorbed in travel.

Dear Beowulf566,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the Residence Inn on TripAdvisor. We are pleased that you enjoyed our accomodations and thank you for being a loyal guest to us over the years. Many of our guests travel from New Rochelle to the big apple just like you. The trip on Metro North has increased to $7.50 Off Peak from $7 last year. A great tip is to always purchase your tickets PRIOR to your travel at one of the kiosks at the station rather then purchasing on the train as those prices do almost double!

I'd be happy to help you make any future reservations when your wife and you travel back to the New Rochelle area - please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Best Wishes for a beautiful spring!

Danielle

I stayed at this Residence Inn for one night and was totally pleased with both the accommodations and service.

I had a one bedroom suite, which was equivalent in size and layout to a small, one bedroom apartment. The kitchen area had full sized appliances (stove, fridge, microwave) plus the various utensils necessary for meal preparation and dining. There were separate dining tables and work tables - a setup which was quite convenient. The living area was comfortably furnished, and while the bedroom was somewhat small, the bed was comfortable and delivered a good night's sleep.

Check-in was handled efficiently by a very enthusiastic staff member. I had arrived early - well before check-in time, and even though the hotel had been sold out the previous night, he checked and was able to find a suite available for me when I arrived. He took time to explain the various amenities and procedures and made sure that I was well-informed about my stay.

Check-out was also handled quickly and pleasantly.

The hotel is located in downtown New Rochelle, within an easy 5 minute walk from the train station (Metro-North and Amtrak). There is a parking garage adjacent (also attached to the hotel); there's a $10/night charge for parking (plus tax) or $5 for elite members, which I consider to be a bit silly, since there is no garage attendant or access gate. There is also easy access to I-95.

There is a complimentary buffet breakfast served on the 10th floor which appeared to have a decent variety of self-serve items. Coffee is available 24 hours a day in the lobby; when I went down late at night to get a cup and found none available, the front desk promptly ordered the coffee service to be replenished. I liked that.

All in hotel, this places was everything I expected from a Residence Inn and is a good choice for those looking for such accommodations.

I stayed here for 2 days and I have stayed at many Marriotts across the county and I would have to say this hotel is a great value for the area. The hotel is very clean and modern. My room choice request was honored. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful including the maintenance staff, the cook, the guard and the front desk. The staff went out of their way to accommodate me. The room was exceptionally neat and clean. You do have to park in a parring garage attached to the property however there are reserved spaces for guests. There are many restaurants within a short walking distance and an IMAX theater next to the building. Great stay and value.

I travel 360 days a year for work, and spend that many nights a year residing at hotels. My preference has been Hilton properties, but was recently made an offer by corporate Marriott to entice me to try a Marriott facility. Let me add that I work for my state and require a government rate for stays. When I phoned for information about a three month stay apparently honoring their published available government rate requires the "approval" of the sales manager at this facility.

After THREE attempts to make contact here, I finally stopped trying to get the sales manager to return my call OR respond to me by email. AND after requesting the assistance of the General Manager regarding the lack of response, I received an email from her devoting all of her time defending her (inept) sales manager. Not only did I receive a 3 paragraph email defending her staffs' lack of a professional or courteous response, she spent the majority of her correspondence LYING about the events, and fabricating reasons why a lack of response on their behalf surely must have been my fault. If she spent half as much time trying to accommodate a request rather than defending an inept response, I would not be writing this review.

With the understanding that this is a franchised location rather than a Marriott corporate facility, I have forwarded her email and information to corporate as a "shining" example of how extremely poor customer service here must impact this hotels guest satisfaction results.

After sharing my experience with my colleagues about this facility they all concur that the facilities attitude of indifference and low standards of customer service and customer response are pervasive here. It apparently comes from the very top of the organization (the General Manager). They have shared that the facility has a better track record of provide more excuses than just providing good old-fashioned high quality customer service.

My recommendation? Find a corporate Marriott or another competitive facility in this area. There are tons. And if you care about getting some "hospitality" from a hospitality business, elsewhere is a better choice.

Room Tip: Want a great room here? My best advice is stay somewhere else.

My church has been using the Residence Inn New Rochelle since November 2012, and apparently we enjoy our time there because we are still using their facility in 2014. The hotel originally gave us one of their conference rooms that had a floor to its self (5th floor), which was awesome. Less than a year later, the higher management team decided to convert our floor into a sleeping suite, and thus we had to move to the sixth floor. Though not our ideal location because the conference room is located on the same floor as guest rooms (we try to avoid disturbing people), we've been in the new room less than a year and we are rather pleased with our space.

Service: The staff at Residence Inn New Rochelle is amazing. In the past year+ we have not had a problem with anyone. From the maintenance staff to the front desk to the management staff, we feel like family when we are there. Our current sales manager (the hotel has had like 5 since we started) Najwa, who has been working with us directly for almost a year, is wonderful. There has never been a question that she couldn't answer, or a minor situation that she hasn't solved with the utmost courtesy, professionalism, and quickness. The maintenance/housekeeping staff has been great since day one.

Cleanliness: I can only speak for our space and the bathroom for the most part, which always seems to be clean. The main area is always well maintained as well.

Location: Other than the unfortunate location of our conference room (being on the same floor as the guest rooms), the hotel location is definitely in an ideal and convenient location. It is right next to the bus terminal and the Metro North. There is also a Hertz Car Rental location right across the street. Over time, there has become more restaurant options and activities (including a Planet Fitness right next door).

Outside of using the hotel weekly for services, I can't really speak to their guest rooms or restaurant, since I haven't stayed here to sleep in nearly ten years.

Overall, if you are looking for a place to hold a meeting or services, the Residence Inn New Rochelle is a great place to check-out. If not for anything else, the service and the location will make you consider them. Enjoy :)

Room Tip: If booking for conference space, ask for the LeCount Room. Though it may cost a little extra, it is...

I've been staying here off and on since 2005 and 5 days a week for the last 3 years. This property recently went through an entire renovation with some very nice upgrades (including much faster wi-fi - which is very important to me). The entire staff is always friendly, courteous, and always accommodating. The rooms are always clean and their housekeeping is some of the best I've experienced in my business travels. The manager, Danielle, always makes herself available when her presents is needed - she has a very good team that works hand-n-hand with each other. There's a hearth room on the 10th floor that has a breakfast starting at 6:30 with a large selection of breakfast items - then in the evening starting at 6:00pm there's a supper that is put out for all guest. There's a salad bar here for the health conscious traveler. All-n-all I have no complaints and consider this my home away from home.....and it's just a short train ride (the train station is only two blocks away from the hotel) to anywhere in the Five Boroughs.
Please consider this hotel the next time your travels take you to NYC!

As Marriott Rewards members, we used our free room to stay here on Feb. 1st. The hotel was easy to find and has parking very convenient to the hotel. It is located next to New Roc City movie and amusements. I called earlier in the day to confirm my reservation and was pleased with Jameel, front desk. When we arrived he remembered the call and greeted us warmly. He reduced our parking in half and had our room ready early. The room was nicely appointed and handicapped accessible, as requested. Everything was clean and fresh. We went to the movies and dinner and returned to the hotel to relax. Once again, greeted warmly and offered cookies and bottled water (accepted with thanks). The next morning we had a delicious and complete breakfast buffet hosted by a nice young lady, who once again greeted us warmly. Easy to get back onto I-95. We were very pleased by the security at the hotel, which made us feel very secure. No complaints, only good memories. Stay here, you will be pleased.

Room Tip: My room was fine. First time at this location,
