Where do you stay when you are remodeling your home or you have a repair problem that prevents you from occupying your house?
The Residence Inn by Marriott in Prescott is the perfect choice. Spaciously designed guestrooms are ideal for extended-stay guests who need accommodations for weeks, or even months, at a time. Studio, one- and two-bedroom/two-bath suites include fully-equipped kitchens with a full-size refrigerator and dishwasher.
The Prescott Residence Inn is more like a vacation rental than a hotel, and you get the added bonus of housekeeping service and complimentary breakfast every day. Housekeeping service can be daily or customized around your work schedule and set at a specific time of day. The breakfast buffet has an extensive choice of menu items and healthy options, including gluten-free items. And if you need to keep your work-out schedule on track, there is a 24-hour fitness room on-site, or you can take advantage of a free membership at the full-service Fitness Four 10, located across the street.
One of the greatest benefits of staying at a Residence Inn is the people you meet, many of whom are also staying for extended periods of time.
The Residence Inn Mix is the three-times weekly evening social hour offered on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Complementing themed menu items is an Italian soda station and a variety of wines and premium beers. Friendships are made and business networking takes place on these nights surrounded by the ambiance of the fire pit and fireplace.
And if this wasn’t enough, the hospitable staff will go to your favorite grocery store and do the grocery shopping for you and also arrange your dry cleaning pick-up and delivery. Every new extended stay guest is treated to all the items they need for their first home-cooked meal, all placed in the kitchen before their arrival.
Last but not least, is the Marriott Rewards program, which is the largest in the world, totaling 29 brands. One extended stay visit can earn rewards points very rapidly, with some guests achieving the highest level platinum status during one stay.
Maybe you don’t want to wait for a home repair to stay?
