Newer Residence Inn hotels are always a consideration in our book for several reasons. First, the spacious floorplans of all rooms include kitchenettes (with refrigerators, microwaves, dishwasher), separate sitting and sleeping areas, comfortable bedding and free WiFi access. These amenities are especially welcome for families and pre-race stays.
Second, Residence Inn's complimentary full breakfasts are a satisfying meal to either wake up to or chow down on after a morning workout. This particular Residence Inn even provides 24-hour room service for those with late night cravings.
Third, most Residence Inn properties, including this one, keep the athletic-minded traveler in mind with their on-site gym or off-site offerings. The in-house gym sports a few cardio machines in a small room. If you have $5, take a look at Phoenix Athletic Club ($5) across the street on the 9th floor.
Joggers should consider a run along our Piedmont Park route.
