This is an update from my Oct 2011 review.
I’ve stayed at this Residence Inn dozens of times over the years and can only equate it to that comfy pair of old shoes – clean, comfortable, older but you know what you get and will be happy. However after a few recent visits I’ve come to the conclusion it’s time to pass on those old pair of shoes.
I like Residence Inn for all the amenities but this property shows its age and even after renovations, it’s age is still showing. After a few visits recently I think there are better options in the area than what was a favorite of mine. Recent issues include older bed mattress that wasn’t the most comfortable, security locks broken and hanging off main door, bathroom door loose on hinges and a strong odor of cleaning/sanitizing products. The smell of cleaning products has been something I’ve noticed several times before and while the room is clean I don’t want to smell bleach like smell each time I enter the room. Issues were raised to staff and they were friendly about them but not sure I should have to tell them about this stuff it should be obvious.
I think this property may be better for a long term stays where one may overlook some of these little issues since the place has kitchen but not something I want to deal with for a shorter business trip. Right next door there are 2 other Marriott’s – Fairfield and Courtyard. I’ve changed to use the Courtyard as my regular. Other options include another Residence Inn in Redmond Town Center as well as a full Marriott next to it.
