I'm going to be staying at one of those places for a couple weeks until I find an apartment. Has anyone ever used Marriot for temporary housing?

I use Marriot (and Courtyard Marriot) when I travel for work. My stays are usually 2 weeks at a time, and I've always been satisfied with the rooms, services etc.

Oh really, I'll have to look into that, thanks. I didn't know they have longer term stays.

I stayed at a Residence Inn once for a month and liked it because it's basically like a studio apartment. Of course the downside is the cost.

Room quality depends on if it's new/ or recently remodeled. I've recently stayed in some brand new Springhill suites in various cities and they are really nice. R.I. and Springhill provides breakfast (again, how good the bkf is depends on the individual hotel). Courtyard and the real Marriott Hotel don't provide bkf. Residence Inn also provides an evening meal (if you can call it that).

if you're looking at this for temporary housing, it's residence inn hands down. i traveled this past year for my job and we were pretty much required to book our rooms at marriotts. 70% were at residence inns. i've stayed at courtyard, towneplace, springhill, etc but residence inn usually has a larger room/up to date kitchen w full fridge, oven and stove. they also have dinners mon-thurs.

i've been put in a room at a residence inn where i had my own bedroom, fireplace, stainless steel appliances, 2 flat screens. it was works. oh how im gonna miss it lol.
