Would do it again.
Parking was not on-site, but was right next door and a discounted rate. Hotel was an easy 100 ft from the ramp. Busy area right on the main pedestrian walkway. Easy walking access to everything. Very friendly and helpful staff both in the hotel and the 1520 pub.

Know what you're getting into before you book
The location is convenient and there's a nice bar with great live music onsite. That said, I wish I'd have been warned going in that the hotel is essentially above a nightclub and extremely busy street and the walls of your room will vibrate with club music until the wee hours of the morning. If that's what you're looking for, you may have a decent stay, but it would have been nice to have been told this beforehand in order to have the choice for those looking for a different experience. There is no onsite parking so prepare to pay to park offsite and carry your luggage a short distance through the streets. If you don't plan on sleeping until daylight, this is probably a decent choice, but it would be fairer to guests to let them know what they're signing up for ahead of time so they can make that decision.

My daughter and I spent three nights at the Residence Hotel. We loved our stay; the staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful and the bar was a fun place for a drink each evening. The location is perfect; on the main shopping and dining street. The only downside was that our room overlooked the street which can be noisy late into the night. Overall, we'd definitely stay there again.
