Last week I had organized a small get together with my family and friends. We travelled from Wisconsin, DC, New jersey and Georgia to spend some good quality time with each other in Miami.
In our group, we had small baby and few people allergic to outside food, so I preferred to stay in Residence Inn, since it comes with full kitchen. Though this hotel is far from downtown and food joints, we preferred it, because of kitchen.
4 Rooms which were allocated to us had good space. We stayed in rooms 220,420,520 and 518.
Main problem we had with our stay was kitchen utensils and cookware. All the utensils were old. In cookware, Teflon coating was coming off. When we cooked food, we could see Teflon coating pieces in food. This was serious problem, since one of my family member is very sensitive towards food and things can serious harm her health.
When we checked with reception, they just handed over one pan. I was surprised with their response. You call RESIDENCE INN as full kitchen hotel. I believe their hands are tied, what else they can do, they did what they were told to do.
After that, we bought kitchen utensils and cookware from outside and had to trash it on return.
I will not recommend this hotel for anyone. Since it can put your health at risk.
