Perfect location for a business conference. Plenty of good restaurants close at hand, excellent facilities, courteous staff. My one piece of advice would be for the front-desk staff to be better informed about the conferences being held at their hotel.

This hotel would be great if you only stayed on the bottom floor. Conference and ballrooms are very nice. Once you scratch the surface, however, you realize how displeasing this hotel really is. The $14 breakfast buffet is hardly better than a standard free continental breakfast at a two star hotel. The rooms are so small you can't walk past...

Dear ErinElizabeth2, While we appreciate your kind comments about our ballrooms, we regret to hear that our guest rooms were not to your satisfaction. Even though we do not have control over the actual size of our rooms, we are making plans for a rooms renovation in the future that should help to open up space and provide more comfort....

Hotel is accessible from the street and staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent. Bar is OK--typical--expensive but not badly so. Valet parking is costly but parking on one's own is quite reasonable and the garage is connected by a walk-bridge to the hotel.

This hotel is dated and the rooms show it's age. I stayed with a friend for a military ball on site at the hotel. The room was tiny and dated. I bought a sprite at the bar and I was charged 11.50 by the bartender, outrageous and the the overpriced breakfast was also terrible. I won't ever stay there again.

We have shared your feedback with our food and beverage departments to address the issue of the cash bar prices and the breakfast buffet. We are making plans for a rooms renovation sometime soon and hope that you choose...

This property is typical of full-service Marriotts; clean, modern, a beautiful lobby and updated rooms. A large and well-run pool and gym, and bar and restaurant. The staff was incredible. We were only in town for a short period and the staff, most especially Nicole at the front desk, answered our many questions and found us the perfect room. 4...

We have stayed at this Marriott many times over the last five years and have always had great service and experiences. We were significantly disappointed this time around. I had booked our room over 9 months ago for our stay over graduation weekend. I had requested two beds because we were traveling w/family. When we arrived, we were told the...

Dear beachiemom, We know that graduation is an exciting time for everyone and that many parents book their reservations far in advance to prepare for the celebration. We apologize that we were not able to accommodate your requests, as rooms with two doubles were in high demand. Your comments regarding your service and rollaway beds will be shared with the...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel as part of a package to The Masters Golf Tournament. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom was rather small and had no window or extractor. As we arrived back very late from the tournament, we chose to eat in the hotel restaurant....
