Quick Business Trip

This was the perfect hotel for a quick business trip. It was in a great location overlooking the water and near to many local attractions.

Guy's bowl game getaway

The hotel is conviently located just a short way from the restaurants on south Howard and had a sports bar and restaurant in the hotel that was the best I have ever personally seen in a hotel. Great stay.

A few issues

This hotel is in a great location and has good amenities. The hotel staff is helpful and the catering and food people are wonderful if you are having a wedding or other function. However, housekeeping is not so good. Don't plan on having your room cleaned and made up until mid-afternoon. They don't take direction very well and are not reliable if you ask for a different time to clean the room. Very disappointing staff in this regard. I'd stay here again, but would be calling the front desk every morning to make sure things happened the way I wanted it to happen.

Exceeded Expectations for Business Trip

The staff were extremely courteous, and so professional! The room was well serviced, clean and contemporary. The location was so beautiful. All staff were seemed to be empowered to please the customer. The food was wonderful, and room service was timely, and maintained the same standards as the restaurants! It was actually delivered hot! Even the parking and transportation assistant staff went the extra mile. You really could not ask for a better experience.

Amazing Staff!

I was there for a professional conference and was really impressed with the competence and friendliness of the staff both with respect to the hotel itself and with our conference preparations. I was a bit frustrated by the high price of food within the hotel, but there were many wonderful restaurant choices within easy walking distance. The location is lovely.

Petty

Like most airlines Marriott has reduced itself to charging for things that should be free: (a) demanding payment for internet; and (b) provides bottle water on tray with glasses and ice container but, without notice, puts a $2 charge on your bill if you drink. Petty, petty. Marriott should be aboce such pettiness.

Nice Hotel

Room was nice but not much around the area. I walked about four blocks to find something to eat. There was no shuttle service from the airport and no complimentary breakfast. But overall was a good stay.

Not that great for a Marriott

You can't park your own car and empty your own items. They won't let you use the rolling carts without their supervision. There's limited parking to check in and they won't let you leave your car there. Parking for your vehicle is $20 a day! For a four day vacation that's another $80. The attendants were rude. The elevators are noisy in the rooms all night long. The amenities are only available at an extra cost. The room was small. The list goes on and on. This was a very disappointing hotel.
