Dear Residence Inn,
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your hotel the week before Memorial Day 2010. We arrived on Friday evening and checked out Wednesday morning, only days before the holiday weekend.
Traveling with small children (4 under the age of 7) can be stressful and difficult. I have learned from experience that a suite can help reduce our stress levels greatly. Your 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom suite certainly helped on our vacation to the Washington, DC area; as did the free breakfasts.
My kids LOVED having a second floor bedroom all to themselves. We do not have a 2 story home so this was a real novelty for them. I loved not having to share my bathroom with my children for the week!! And my husband loved having a large flat panel television in every room!! At one point on our trip, my children were watching cartoons upstairs while my husband watched a "manly" show in the living room and I watched a decorating show in the bedroom. For us, that's living in luxury!!
Last but not least, your staff was courteous and helpful at all times. They were understanding when one of my sons wet the bed during the night and quickly changed the sheets. They also provided stamps for us to purchase and mailed our post cards.
Overall, we greatly enjoyed our stay at your hotel. Our one (small) complaint is that the swimming pool wasn't open while we were there. I understand that you opened it a few days after our visit. I know that those living in VA may not feel May is warm enough to swim but visitors from New England definitely think it's warm enough when "down South".
Thank you for making our vacation relaxing and enjoyable!
Very Happy Customers,
The Stephanie's Mommy Brain Family
PS. If you should ever need a Mommy or Family Ambassador, I would LOVE to tell people how family friendly your hotel is!!
Disclosure: I was not paid or compensated in any way to write this post. I found this hotel to be clean, courteous, and well priced for my family and wanted to share that with other families.
