Residence Inns' New Generation
Residence Inn, the granddaddy of extended-stay lodging, recently unveiled its Gen7 suite design. Earlier in the year, the Marriott brand rolled out HOMEtouch, its new complimentary breakfast program.
The new suite design strikes a contemporary tone with furnishings that are both comfortable and functional. Highlights include stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops in the kitchen; upgraded bedding; and a living area that features a recliner and ottoman and a striking red chaise lounge that converts into a bed.
Since adding the HOMEtouch breakfast offering in March, guest satisfaction scores for the Residence brand have risen 4.4 percentage points, says the company. The new breakfast includes a wider variety of items and a build-your-own option. Eggs, for example, can be scrambled with bacon on the side or stacked between a biscuit with cheese and sausage for a breakfast sandwich.
