Great location for a chain hotel with a quaint and charming feel. Located one block from the Decatur square where you'll find lots and lots of shops, restaurants and bars (coffee, wine, beer, etc). Our favorite was the Brick Store Pub. Staff at the hotel make you feel special with a smile and warm greeting. The Bistro in the lobby...

Upon arrival, the lobby is very modern and clean, but the rooms are dated. It looks like we stepped right back into the 80s with the decor. It was clean, but tired. The beds are comfortable regardless! The location is great if you'd like to walk up to Decatur Square. Lots of restaurant options. I found the front desk very...

The room was clean and comfortable. The location was minutes away from my destination and the breakfast was delightful! There was a slight mix-up with my reservation, but Syreeta quickly saved the day!

Love the service here. We arrived early around 10am and they kindly arranged a room for us. Large lobby with a nice courtyard. Rooms are clean. Right in the downtown of Decateur. Walking distance to the main offices in the area. A couple of cafes and restaurants within 10 mins away. Clean, decent, business hotel.

Very clean room. Ultra-friendly staff. Syreeta greeted us warmly and explained all we needed to know to make our stay comfortable. Parking is an additional $10 per night. No big deal, but good to know. The garage is clean, well-lit and convenient.

Comfortable stay at what seems to be a mainly business traveler hotel. Downstairs bar/cafe had great food and customer service was great. Hotel front desk staff was extremely helpful when checking in and answering questions.

Checked in and had wonderful discussion and advice from front desk attendant. Room was very nice. No issues. Enjoyed the Starbucks coffee in the lobby Bistro area. Great location, 1/2 block from the town square and the multitude of fine restaurants. Will definitely be back!

The staff was very friendly and attentive to my needs. The room was average at best. Dirty carpet and cabinets that were uneven or tilted made the room unappealing. There are not many choices in the area that allow you to walk to the many fine restaurants in the Decatur area. I am scheduled to stay here again in two...

Rating Very Good, not for the "great" room, but for the Marriott service. Booked the room for two nights ahead of time, as I was worried there wouldn't be any room on New Year's Eve. After I booked two nights, I found it substantially cheaper on another web site. I called Marriott and they said that they would price match...
