Heading to Sesame Place? Stay with the Residence Inn by Marriott

Are you heading to Sesame Place this summer? Well, the Residence Inn by Marriott is THE place to stay when making plans to meet your furry monster friends up close. Located just minutes away from where Sesame Street comes to life, the Residence Inn by Marriott offers families a comfortable and spacious suite to kick back and stay awhile.

The Residence Inn is a perfect home away from home for short or extended stays. My family of 5 recently stayed 5 nights at this location and could have moved in permanently! lol There was plenty of room for my crew to move around without tripping over each other and ample drawers and closets to tuck away our clothes and belongings. The living room held a couch and comfy chair to watch the flat screen  tv or even the fireplace if the weather warranted it and the bedroom had a large and cozy King sized bed. So cozy, in fact, the stay has inspired us to purchase new bedroom furniture at home in a King!

The Suites come equip with a  kitchen including  a range, full sized refrigerator and even a dishwasher. This was essential for us in keeping snacks and beverages handy and cold and allowed us to pack picnic lunches to bring to Sesame Place with us, cutting costs on our food bill immensely. Don’t want to cook on your vacation? understandable! The Residence Inn in Langhorne offers a mouth watering breakfast every morning and features everything from basics like yogurt, oatmeal and bagels to the hot and tasty like homemade waffles (with chocolate chips!!), egg sandwiches and home fries. My boys were set on devouring a double chocolate chip muffin almost every morning. They were in heaven!

Above and beyond!

The staff at the Residence Inn really go above and beyond what you will find at other hotels. In addition to the wonderful morning breakfasts, they also host food in the evening two nights a week! I can’t tell you how amazing it was to arrive back at our hotel after a long day at Sesame Place feeling worn out and hungry to be welcomed in to the courtyard patio for a bbq dinner and a glass of wine (yes, I said a glass of wine, I know, I can’t believe it either) or for some comforting beef stew on a rainy day. There are just no words to describe how much that helps a family when traveling.

From the front desk, to the housekeepers, we were greeted with a friendly smile at every corner or a nice chat on the elevators. While checking in, the staff knowing we were heading to Sesame Place even gave my boys their own rubber duckies like our friend Ernie has! Since we were staying so many days we used our little yellow ducks during bath time at the hotel!

Take advantage of our wonderful amenities, including complimentary grocery shopping service and 24-hour pantry and laundry facilities. We’re considered one of the finest hotels near Langhorne, PA, for a reason. We help you stay productive with complimentary high-speed, wireless Internet in all guest suites and throughout the hotel. We have a comfortable library featuring computer, printer and fax services.

After a long day touring the city of Philadelphia, our family enjoyed retreating to the hotel’s heated pool and hot tub, it is always a highlight of a hotel stay for our boys to be able to swim and Mom and Dad relaxed those tired muscles from sightseeing. The hotel also has a fitness room and outdoor sports court that we had hoped to use for a little basketball with the boys but even with staying 5 days we just didn’t fit it into our busy schedule!

The Residence Inn by Marriott in Langhorne, is the Perfect hotel for visiting Sesame Place or exploring the  Philadelphia area. For more information visit their website or stop by their new page on facebook and say hi!

    Wow what a great place! I have always been happy with Marriott when I have stayed with them! Nothing beats a king size bed either 🙂

  3. Wow that sounds like a really awesome hotel! So cute that they gave the boys duckies!

  4. Woah, looks gorgeous! We live not too far from Sesame Place and I know it’ll be somewhere we visit when my son is a little older!

  5. Kathryn says:

    Wow, it sounds amazing! LOVE that they offer dinners; I totally agree that that makes a big difference when you are traveling. Not having to worry about what and where to eat (or having to scarf down greasy burgers because it’s easy) would be awesome. Makes me wish we lived closer to PA! 🙂

      lol exactly one of our first meals before we got to the Langhorne area was at McDonalds. we made a pact right then that we would not be eating fast food again for the rest of the trip!

  11. wow that looks great! thanks for sharing

  12. Jennifer Clay says:

    This looks like a great place to stay! I love how cozy it looks!

  13. I love when hotels have Kings size beds, we have a King at home and when we go away sleeping in a queen just seems so… small. Love the kitchen of the suite too, looks like a perfect home away from home.

    • momvsboys says:

      we felt that way coming home, how do we survive in the queen? an upgrade is a must! especially when all the boys pile in to watch cartoons!

  14. The rooms look pretty and now I am craving chocolate chip waffles. YUM!

  15. Fireplace, view, full sized fridge. With kids, it’s always nice to have a place to prepare snacks. Sounds like you had fun. I’ve stayed at the Marriott before and always enjoyed myself. We’ll be repeat customers.

    I’ve stayed at only one Marriott but the service was so superior that I would prob go out of my way to stay at another

  17. Looks like a lovely hotel. 🙂 Thanks for the review! Not sure if we’ll make it to Sesame Place, but we could check out this chain’s hotels elsewhere in our travels. It’s always nice to have a recommendation instead of choosing blindly.

    • momvsboys says:

      we’ve stayed at a Residence Inn by Marriott in TO and it was lovely, this one had a better room layout though.

  18. it looks like a great hotel! I am hoping to head to sesame place next year maybe…..will definitely keep this in mind for accomodations

    • momvsboys says:

      You’ll love both the hotel and Sesame Place. Be sure to check in with me while planning the trip, we saw lots of awsesome things in the area and had a blast!

  19. Wow! That is awesome! We stayed at the Marriott in the Philippines (in Manila) and we were totally blown away.

    I’d love to take little one to Sesame Place sometime. Thanks for the great post!

  20. This looks like such a beautiful place to stay, thanks for the review. I always like seeing what people think of hotels before I stay at them.
