I surely love the lobby and the fact that it was connected to the breakfast area and a huge waiting area and business center. Like it can be our home or I wanted it to be our home especially the kitchen at the breakfast buffet with it's subway tiles and simply generous breakfast, it's great for entertaining if we have that kitchen at home. The kids who are not big on breakfast even wanted to keep eating, it was that inviting.
We arrived late at Residence Inn Torrance coming from Palm Springs and was ready to go to bed. The kids love the suite that even it was already passed 10, there was no way we can get them to bed, but once we got them to, we were all in a sweet slumber.
The 2 beds being not queen size is probably the only negative I can say about Residence Inn but they also have a pull out sofa.
