Subject: re: Residence Inn

I have spent over 1000 nights in Residence Inns over the past 7 years (though not the one in Bloomington, IL). They offer a very consistent product. You get a small sitting room with a couch and tv that extends into a bedroom; a separate bathroon; and a kitchen with a full refrigerator, microwave and stove top. They offer a complimentary breakfast buffet every morning (cereal, juice, yougurt, fresh fruit, toast, danish, maybe waffles or eggs) and a happy hour with food Monday-Thursday.

Even if I am only staying somewhere for 2 or 3 nights, I like to stay at a Residence Inn or other suite-type hotel because I like the extra space and amentities.
