One thing to remember about the Residence Inn and Towneplace Suite brands is that you only earn half the points as the other brands. (5 VS 10). Which obviously also affects your bonus points, too. if most of your stays are one night, you will maximize points by staying at CY, SHS, FI, etc, instead of RI or TPS. Unless I have a true need for a kitchen, I rarely stay in these brands...the shortage in points earnings just is not worth it.
