New Residence Inn by Marriott opens in Pullman

PULLMAN, WA - Pullman's newest hotel opened its doors this week, and they're already booked up for commencement weekend.

The four-story Residence Inn by Marriott has 131 suite that are designed for extended stay, but General Manager Sara Raquet said they're accommodating a lot of Coug families commencement weekend.

"We have a fantastic fitness center here that's open 24 hours, as well as an indoor pool and Jacuzzi," said Raquet. "We also have a lobby bar that's been popular since we opened."

The hotel is located right next to the rec center on the Washington State University campus. They started building it last July, and they opened their doors to the public on Wednesday. Raquet said they expect to accommodate many visiting professors, as well as athletes that will compete at WSU.
