As I am sure most of you know, housing in the Bay Area is extremely pricey. In fact, the housing budget for assignments in this area are usually doubled compared to other places.
I requested to live in the Marriott Residence Inn, which ended up being affordable compared to other housing options. This way, I wouldn’t have to worry about acquiring bed linen, pillows, kitchen utensils etc. since I have never needed them before. The hotel comes with a kitchen and supplies, which is very convenient for long-term housing.
I have been very pleased with my stay thus far. On the weekends I enjoy the free continental breakfast. On a sunny day I make sure to swim in their heated outdoor pool. I usually request housekeeping services once a week. It’s nice having someone clean up after you J
They gave me a first floor room adjacent to the parking lot so it is easy for me to go in and out. Not to mention that this hotel is pet friendly for all you dog lovers!
The best part is that after staying here for 3 months, I will have accumulated thousands of Marriott rewards points in which I can redeem in the future for free nights at any Marriott hotel. I will also become an elite member meaning I will always be offered free room upgrades and free breakfast at any Marriott property.
Below are some pictures of my studio at the Marriott Residence Inn.
