Can’t speak to those properties specifically, but AC’s are generally more modern!

Thank you, thats what I thought but the residence inn seems super popular in that area so was a bit confused.

Points Guy article recently bashing the new AC FWIW, but sounds like your expectations probably aren’t too high.

Well there is the hotel and there is the general area where all the action is. Look at where you’ll want to be spending the most time in without having to drive too far from your hotel. Some residence inns are newly renovated so are more convenient if you like to eat in, especially breakfast due to the kitchenette and extra living space compared to a regular hotel room

Fair point, thanks!
