Nice hotel close to FSU

Pros: Liked the clean rooms and convenient location.
Location: There are several boutique type shops and restaurants on Gaines and Madison Streets. Close to FSU stadium and South entrance of campus.
We chose this hotel as it was close to our daughter's dorm, and it was located within walking distance to the shops and restaurants in the Gaines St area. The hotel was very clean upon entering the lobby, staff was accommodating to our requests, and we found the room very clean and comfortable also. We had a standard room, which was a King bed with kitchenette and living area. Our daughter ended up staying with us as well. The breakfast included both hot and cold items, and plenty of coffee. Very good!

Nice, close to campus, but ask for a quiet room

Location: Close to FSU and many restaurants, etc.
This was a nice experience made better by the staff. When I arrived, very loud music was playing outside, coming from bars/restaurants on W. Gaines St. After realizing my room faced the street, I asked for a quieter room and was given a very nice room overlooking the pool area. And, I had personal phone issues and could not access my gps, the desk staff was very accommodating, helping me by printing out directions to where I needed to go upon checking out! Thanks a bunch! (but don't forget to ask for a quiet room!)

Great location next to FSU

The hotel had a hard time finding my reservation having booked through Travelocity. Next time I will book directly through the hotel. Enjoyed the stay otherwise!

Pros: See above.
Cons: See above.
This is a great hotel - we have stayed in it several times. The breakfast bar is wonderful. The place is always neat and clean, stylish even! Okay, now the bad. The wiring of the light switches in the rooms is confounding. It'll take you several days to figure out which switch controls which light(s). These were not well thought-out. The room HVAC systems are noisy. The light and fan in the bathroom should be separately switched - this way you could use the overhead light as a nightlight (with the door nearly closed) without having to endure the fan noise all night. The piped-in music in the lobby at breakfast time is way too loud - unnerving. The (paper) plates for the breakfast bar are about 10" in diameter, which is fine. The trash receptacles for them are about 7" in diameter, which isn't. All this notwithstanding I heartily recommend this hotel. The staff is friendly and quite helpful.

Marriott Residence on Gaines ST

Pros: Had everything we needed, including a nice pool and spa. Close to FSU and Downtown/Capitol.
Cons: Finish up the remodel, looks like it will be very nice.
Location: Check out the Fermentation Lounge on All Saints ST nearby. Craft beers, nice crowd.
We needed a hotel close enough to walk to most of our events. This hotel is in a great location. They are remodeling the lobby and breakfast area, but the temporary lobby and breakfast area were just fine. Room was in great shape, clean and comfortable.

Nice hotel with great access to FSU/FAMU campuses.

Pros: Proximity to FSU (about 3 blocks) and restaurants, the bed, full kitchen.
Cons: Free high speed internet should be standard. Funky smell.
Location: 3 blocks to the FSU campus. Surrounded by bar's and restraurants (college style stuff). Very close to downtown.
The hotel is in a great location for access to Florida State Univerisity campus. The room was nice but not terribly well constructed. The cabinets were rickety but pleasant to look at. The full kitchen was great. The bathroom was designed for disabled access, as a result there was no sill for the shower (so that a wheel chair could roll into it). This made for a messy shower as water ran all over the floor, even with the two drains. There was a funky smell to the room, probably cigarette smoke. The bed was great. It was so comfortable so that I didn't even have to use the memory foam topper that I brought with me. The common areas of the hotel were under construction and a complete mess, the hotel gym was not available. Moderate speed internet with low bandwith is standard, high speed internet is extra. At 10pm video streaming becomes impossible. Hard to believe that a hotel in a univerisity town would have this business model.
