Historical Traveler Reviews Sonesta ES Suites Flagstaff
Quiet, excellent and reasonable
Stayed two nights in 'suite w/ full kitchen'. Rooms were very clean. Accomodations were well above average with nice bed(s) and plentiful towels, etc. Kitchen was well appointed with decent oven/stove, micro... all utensils and pots/pans - we cooked in and enjoyed a filet mignon meal for pennies that would of cost $$$ eating out.
Free breakfast was well thought out with good variety for all types of eaters/dieters. Yards and ingress/egress were well kept up and clean. Personnel were friendly and "instantly" helpful (HBO suddenly went "spanish speaking" at 8PM. Call to the front desk had it resolved in five minutes. Good service. This Inn is located at the Eastern most end of Flagstaff and near all the major freeways/highways. Not far from 'old Flagstaff' and Route 66. This WILL be our Flagstaff 'hangout' when we return. YMMV, but we enjoyed it.
Stay Here! Awesome Place!
If you are planning to visit Flagstaff, you should definitely stay at the Residence Inn by Marriott. I just spent 3 wonderful nights there, and I could not be happier!
I was checked in by Ariel, who was extremely friendly and helpful. I had a top floor room with a lovely view of Mt. Elden and the golf course. The room was excellent.... It was clean, spacious, airy, and a delight after an 8 hour drive. Great kitchen with complimentary popcorn, coffee, etc. I was so happy! The windows in the room open, which is great, so I was able to get the crisp Fall air in my room.
Also, the complimentary breakfast at the Residence Inn is really wonderful. Every morning there was an array of food.... Scrambled eggs, pancakes, make-your-own waffles, cereals, sausage, yogurt.... You name it, they had it! There is also a cozy fireplace in the Gatehouse which is a great addition to the ambiance.
Also, many Flagstaff hotels have a problem with train noise, but this isn't the case here. The hotel is far enough away from the tracks that you only faintly hear the train (unlike some hotels in Flagstaff where it'll wake you out of a sound sleep!).
Overall, I would absolutely recommend the Residence Inn to anyone. I can't wait to visit Flagstaff again. I'll stay at the Residence Inn again, and I would even request the same room! In fact, I'd like to thank the other reviewers on Trip Advisor, because that's how I chose this place to begin with. :) Try to book it through Priceline or one of those other sites.... If you do your homework, you can find some good deals on this place. I was able to book a queen studio for $89 per night on Priceline.... Worth every penny. Have a great time!
Very Pet Friendly!
Spent the weekend at Residence Inn, the staff was very professional, courteous. There is a decent size park area next to the hotel that is also very dog friendly. The breakfast buffet was above average, the grounds were well kept, and the hotel is far enough from the train tracks that the noise is not an issue.
Wonderful, friendly and clean
Great stay. The rooms were so big - not at all your typical hotel room. We got two rooms from Priceline that both totalled less than one night booking on Marriotts own web site. So check it out! Also, the breakfast was hot and good. Highly recommend this hotel.
A great hotel!
My wife and I stayed 2 nights at this Residence Inn while in town for a wedding. The accomodations were clean and cozy. The staff treated us like gold and we had a wonderful experience. There was a small birds nest outside out door (apartment style accomodations) and this really added to my feeling of home.
Best deal in the city
Great price. Huge continental breakfast every morning. Full kitchen. Makes a longer stay wonderful because you don't have to eat out all the time. Short drive to the old downtown area and other attractions. Easy in and out. No problems whatsoever. Would definitely stay there again. Plus, it's pretty much away from Train noise! Small workout room with TV. Pool and spa, though we didn't use it due to lots of unexpected SNOW!
Fab place to stay
We stayed at the Residence Inn in late March this year (2005). It was our first base in our trip from UK to Arizona / California. We had booked on the internet and as we stayed for 6 nights got a very good deal. The accommodation was superb for the family (2 adults and 3 children 14,11,9) We had a two bed suite. Each bedroom had a king size bed, plenty of storage space, great bathroom and large TV. The living room had an open fire and a good size comfy sofa bed. There was a good size kitchen area with all you would need (incl dishwasher). There was a laundry on site and a super hot, hot tub, which after a day of skiing in the local snowbowl was a really welcome treat. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and there was a hearty breakfast served with a smile and a supper on Mon - Thurs with beer and wine. They had free use of a computer with printer linked to high speed internet. Flagstaff can be noisy if you are near the railway. This was a little distance away so you could still hear the trains but you soon get used to it!! We would really recommend this as a base for seeing some of Arizona's great sites .
Overpriced, if you don't ask for a view.
i've stayed at this place to many times to count. lots of room. kitchen is top notch. breakfast is worth it, you can even pour your own waffle/ mix into the griddle from premade cup. the pool doesnt seem to be heated in summer as much as it used to be. big minus if you like warm pools. vending machines have been taken out, big minus if you want late nite snack. you will like this place tho, as long as you dont mind the highest rates in flagstaff. expect to pay 150 standard or 200 for a 2bed2bath.
We also offer a complimentary weekday grocery shopping service if you submit your list to the Front Desk by 9am.
Thank you again, we hope to see you soon at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Flagstaff!
Although I stayed here last year I must say that this is one of the better Residence Inns - clean and well maintained with good facilities. I enjoyed that it is a few miles away from the downtown area with easy access to the major routes to Petrified Forest and Grand Canyon National Parks. It is about a mile away from a shopping mall and movie theater which can be good on a rainy day (although it doesn't rain too often in Arizona).
I always stay here!
I have stayed at this hotel several times. Everyone is very friendly, and the rooms are large and clean. Happy hour (5:30-7:30, beer, wine, soda, snacks) is excellent, and the breakfast is very good as well. Definitely worth your money.

... is so very cheap. Thoughts on the day:- There is a lot of land on this planet that no one inhabits. Lagunitas IPA would be any dog's prized possession. American trucks are cleaner and have more chrome than is needed. The beauty of a landscape can defy description. We are uniquely privileged and fortunate to be doing this. Even amidst all these delights there is a big part of us that wants to be back in Pampelonne with our brilliant mates or home in St Leonard's with the family. ...
... rocks are really red. I'm happy to report that it's true. The drive from Flagstaff to Sedona was beautiful. The best way to describe it is mountains that have been weathered into fanciful red shapes. I'm assuming they are so red because it is so sunny here and, of course, mountains can't apply sun screen. Actually, the science geeks will try to tell you that the rocks contain iron oxide, which gives them ...
... in the late afternoon the train stops about five miles from Williams and is boarded by cowboys who demand money or credit cards!! We're sorry we missed the opportunity to do this trip. The journey from Williams to Sedona was only just over an hour and the last half hour or so was a steep gradient down hill in which we dropped from about ...
Start this non travel day with a relaxing swim before breakfast, I have the pool all to myself, it's just the right temperature too - bliss! We set off for the bus and decide to buy a good value day pass on the bus at just $1.25! First stop the Visitors Centre in the station, a really helpful guy gives us discount vouchers and map to explore the town. Flagstaff is not a big town so we decide to "work the grid" up and down then across from side to side, takes about an hour. Spotting ...
