We booked a one night stay as we had purchased tickets to the Florida Panthers versus Montreal Canadiens hockey game. We decided we didn't want to do a couple hours of driving after the game to head back to where we were staying in Florida. We arrived about 2 pm and were

Dear Monicajay, On the behalf of the entire staff here at the Residence Inn we want to truly thank you for taking the time out to review our hotel as well as your stay. It is music to our ears to hear that you enjoyed our property. Yes I totally understand about our pool and person who designed it must be didn't like the sun because not all of the pool get the effects of the sun unless it is the summer time that is the peak season where it tends to be hot over the pool area. I can definitely put in a suggested for when the hotel undergoes renovation to see if they can place a few more lounge chairs out on the deck area. I sincerely apologize that the lobby attendant wasn't available while you were out to clean up the pool/ deck area as I have to agree that was not a typical Marriott cleaning standard. The pool towels issue it is reiterate to the guest to bring the towels back to the front desk, but from reading your review they are not but that is ok I will inform the housekeeping department to be more attentive with the cleaning. Yes our valet is reasonable compared to the hotels around us. I do apologize that your charged for a water that you didn't drink it you call the hotel we can definitely refund that charge for you. I don't have your real name to refund it but if you can and ask to speak to the manager we will credit that back you your credit/ debit card. Yes you have to try our on site restaurant Oria! It is an amazing restaurant with great food items with a beautiful waterfront view! We us use your review as ways to improve our hotel. We will definitely be on the look out for the next time you guys come back and visit! Kind Regards,

Thank you for you honest feedback! We are delighted you chose to stay with us as we know there are many options when it comes to a big event such as the Boat parade,Your satisfaction is our Main priority. We are very sorry you found the valet to be a little pricey. Unfortunately since we are right by the beach, the city in general has very few options when it comes to parking and I can assure you we do keep our prices very low compared to the other locations in the area.I am very mirthful to hear that the issue with the rooms did get resolved and you enjoyed the scenic view.We are very jubilant to hear you will be returning for the upcoming boat parade and would like to thank you once again for choosing us to be your home away from home.

What are the beds like? I have a bad back and need a supportive non sagging mattress.
I like firm mattresses for the same reason you do, as well since I am disabled. The beds here were just fine.
