Our recent stay at the Residence Inn was a very pleasant experience. The suite we stayed in was spacious and well-accommodated. We stayed on the tenth floor and our suite had a beautiful water view of Lake Ontario.


The non-smoking one-bedroom suite was furnished with modern décor. The suite featured a separate bedroom with a king bed, dresser, flat-screen TV, and chair.

The living room had a flat-screen TV, queen-size sofa bed, desk, and eating area.

The kitchen was fully equipped with a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, and ceramic cooktop.  A coffee maker with complimentary tea and coffee was also offered as wells as the kitchen was equipped with dishes, pots, and a toaster. It was like our own little home away from home.

The bathroom featured a shower and bathtub and there were grab bars in the bathroom. The bathroom could have been stocked with more towels, which I think was an oversight by whoever cleaned the room before we checked in.  Leave your hair dryer at home as the hotel provides one, very convenient. The room also provides you with an ironing board and iron.


Twice a week in the evening the staff puts out complimentary snacks in the main lobby.


The night we stayed they were serving hamburgers and hotdogs. We chose to dine at West Seventy6 Grill, but many guests attended the evening social.

The complimentary breakfast that is served in the cozy Hearth Room or lake view terrace offers guests lots to choose from. One can choose to make their own waffles or choose to have eggs, sausage, muffins, french toast, fruits, yogurt, cereal, or oatmeal.  Coffee, juice, and tea are also offered. For a buffet-style breakfast, I was most impressed.

Both indoor and outdoor parking facilities are available to guests for $15 a day. Plus they offer reduced parking rates for extended stays: 5-29 nights is $10 a day; 30 nights or more is $5 a day.

Overall, we had a delightful stay at the Residence Inn by Marriott Kingston Water’s Edge. For lovely lakeside accommodations with all of the comforts of home look no further than the Residence Inn by Marriott Kingston Water’s Edge.
