Stayed at the Courtyard 1 night april 2015. The hotel is beautiful. The grounds immaculate. The pool was warm and kid friendly. The rooms large and spacious. The breakfast quick and good. The riverwalk was a great treat. The kids loved watching the skate boarders. Beautiful stay

I need tho visit the area once a quarter for business, and this has become my go to spot. Its adjacent to the riverwalk which is ideal for a morning run. The place is always clean. Though its a bit further away from the downtown area than other hotels (7-ish blocks instead of 4 for some others), I like the...

Was here last week with family (kid + wife). Found the hotel to be clean and tidy. It is a typical business hotel with not much amenities for the family. The pool is good and helps. However we found that food options are very limited and no restaurant(s) in walking distance. We had to drive around looking for options to...

We stayed for nine nights in this hotel, having originally only planned to stay for five nights: it was so comfortable and there was plenty to do in the area, so we decided against moving on. The location is great and directly on the riverfront, which has a very family friendly walkway with restaurants, beach volleyball and play areas. The...

I have stayed at many Marriott properties and I would have to say this property leaves something to be desired. All in all, its a good property overall. However, this is an old property and it shows. The location is prime and right on the riverfront although they have not leveraged that selling point. This property could use an overhaul...

My family and I spent Easter Weekend at this property. The staff went out of their way to accomodate our needs. The grounds are beautiful. The Riverwalk was an unexpected treat as dining and shops were a short walk away. Special thanks to Chelsey for the Gold Elite upgrade! We will be back.

This is the first time I've been unhappy with a Marriott hotel and the first poor rating I've given to a Marriott. We were given room 131 River view. When we walked in we all commented on how bad it smelled and felt damp. My husband suggested if we turned down the A/C it might help. Needless to say it...

We booked a double queen room, which we found to be a basic no-frills accommodation. When first entering the room, the first thing I noticed was that the AC unit "growled" quite loudly (best way I can describe it) and immediately realized I'd never get to sleep with such irritating noise. I went to the receptionist, who was kind enough...

When I checked in I was informed I had somehow booked a double queen room, although I NEVER book a double room. When I asked if they had a single room available I was told they did not, even though I heard the gentleman at the front desk offer single king rooms to several guests that checked in after me....
