PHOENIX, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Residence Inn Phoenix Desert View at Mayo Clinic has undergone a complete renovation of its 208 suites, transforming them into upscale accommodations designed to enhance the comfort and lifestyle of travelers on the road today.
The residential-style studio, one- and two-bedroom suites are larger than traditional Desert View hotel guest rooms. Spacious layouts provide separate zones where guests can relax, work, eat and sleep, thereby maintaining their routines while away from home. Updated kitchens are outfitted with full-size refrigerators and stainless-steel appliances — in addition to stovetops, microwaves, dishwashers, silverware, pots, pans, dishes and glasses — to make preparing meals and snacks easier for business travelers on long stays and families on holiday. With a larger, expansive workspace, free high-speed internet access and a multitude of easily accessible outlets, professionals are able to work efficiently throughout a suite. New sectional sofas, 37-inch flat-screen televisions with premium movie channels and luxurious bathrooms with extra storage space make it possible for travelers to live and rest comfortably. Contemporary and stylish décor, featuring natural light and refreshing colors, are all elements that improve guests' productivity and energy during their stay at the hotel near Mayo Clinic Phoenix. "When on the road for an extended period, our guests need space to spread out, maintain their life's pace and restore their energy," said Diane Mayer, vice president and global brand manager of Residence Inn. "Residence Inn offers a seamless blend of modern style and functionality that allows them to settle in and thrive." With more than 620 hotels in North America, Europe and South America, Residence Inn offers lower rates for longer stays. The Marriott brand has been credited with introducing the extended-stay lodging segment 37 years ago.
