Marriott Shoals Hotel And Spa

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Pool is fantastic for couples and families. The business/convention center was perfect for the meetings we were attending and the staff was very on top of each detail that went into our multiple events. Rooms were nice. My only complaint is that the bed was not comfortable no matter what I tried.

Comfortable clean resort with two very nice golf courses, the Fighting Joe links style course and the Schoolmaster parkland style course. A good stop on the RTJ Trail. Provides southern hospitality. Nice bar with live music nightly.

The Shoals hotel and spa is first class!! Where do I start, so I took my family on a business trip with me and let them play. When you walk in, you are treated to the fish tank with native Alabama fish which is really cool. The staff is personable and accommodating. All rooms face the river and pool with its awesome waterfall that you hear the moment you open the balcony doors. The pool is flat out awesome! Zero Entry, waterfall, slide, and cave, it really has it all. in the summer, there is a life guard till close(11 pm) so it is safe, and secure. This helps prevents anyone not staying at the hotel from swimming. The hot tub is steps away from the pool and if it starts raining, you can go to the indoor pool. If you are in the mood to work out, there is a full gym with everything you can need for a good workout away from home. Ready for dinner, Swampers is the place to go. Every night they have live music, drinks and good bar food in a cool, muscle shoals music themed atmosphere. If you want a true experience and an upscale dinner, head to 360 which is the rotating restaurant at the top of the Marriott. My kids LOVE this place. For those that have kids and travel here in the summer, walk your kids down to the playground and water display that they can play in. Especially awesome at night as it is lit up and plays music to a display. My kids look forward to this hotel any chance they can come.

Very good rates, a beautiful view from the balcony. When we were there, it was very busy so could not get a line to order room service. Went to the front desk, they were very helpful. We were very tired so just wanted room service. We ate it on our balcony and it ended up being one of the memorable times of our USA trip as we were there by accident. The food was brilliant and the view at night was magic!

So, I stay in Florence a lot and have tried out several hotels there - probably 6 or 7. They all have their advantages and I like some things about them - BUT none of them comes close to the Marriott. It's not cheap but the value is there. I made my most recent reservation when playing in a golf tourney in the Shoals. There were three of us and we'd get there late so i made the reservation via the 800 number and we were to share a room with a rollaway or a suite. The 800 folks got it wrong and didn't give me either. When I go to the room and found that out I went back downstairs and the front desk folks (one young lady was from New Hampshire) were very apologetic (I wasn't mad) and was making it right - when she said - "let me see what I can do." She upgraded us to the Presidential Suite! Wow. It's nice. I will be back - often! Thanks

My Wife and I stayed two nights as a getaway from the usual. The hotel was very clean, spacious and the staff were outstanding. If you can get a room with a balcony. The view is outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and will return again.

My daughter and I stayed in this hotel for a recent sports event trip. The hotel is very nice with a beautiful pool and a view of the river. The room was well appointed and comfortable. The staff was very helpful.

This was an excellent hotel! The highlight for me was the restaurant (Swampers) in it. Great atmosphere, and the food was pretty good,better than I've seen in other Similar restaurants. Nothing fancy, but very tasty. I really enjoyed the live entertainment they had each night too.

Wife and I stayed here for a night back in April. We were very pleased with the stay. We stayed in a standard king room and were pleasantly surprised with a nice big balcony overlooking the pool, river and dam. The room was very clean as was the rest of the hotel and grounds. There was a live band at Swampers on Saturday night and the breakfast the next morning was really good. Overall a very good stay and will definitely stay here again.

Spent two nights here and found it very comfortable. Good food, live music, and very attentive staff. Not far from downtown Florence and other area attractions. Reasonably good value as well. Good athletic facility. Located close to the river and the dam road.
