I stayed here six nights for a softball tournament. This is a former bank with many of the old touches present including breakfast in the bank vault. As usual I will review in the matter of PROS/CONS PROS 1. Despite my request in advance as a Titanium member I was not initially upgraded. The front desk clerk was beyond clueless though I did end up with a one bedroom (handicapped), which was very spacious. 2. Their workout room is closed, but you could use the Powerhouse Gym one block away for free. While old, it was much better then almost any hotel gym. 3. I had access to free parking. Meter parking around the hotel goes until 10 pm six days a week but there are plenty of lots for under $10 a night in the immediate area. 4. Very quiet. Gay Street is not a main thoroughfare. CONS 1. Breakfast was drab and uninviting. Eggs and either turkey sausage or Canadian bacon on alternate days. Hardboiled eggs and yogurt. Breakfast area was dark. I ate out twice and in my room twice. 2. Staff needs better training. I requested new towels one morning (don't even ask about housekeeping) and I had to ask again that night. I might stay here again in a pinch, but the Fairfield on Sawmill road is much better and they don't skimp on the breakfasts. Cheers! Marius

I am staying at the Residence Inn for business and every week that I come the Valet remembers who I am. Jay has been exceptionally helpful, as he would automatically get the cart for me when I arrived with groceries and such. But really the entire crew is great!

The stay was good and pleasant. The valet was really nice and always on time for our car, particularly Josh, he was very nice and easy to work with: he was quick to come and go, didn't ask a tone of questions and always courteous with my lady.
