We stayed 1 night on a short business trip, newly remodeled property was very nice! The only issue was a Duke sponsored youth UN function, it got a little loud in the hallway, the management handled the situation very professionally. The property has long term employees which speaks to the management, good job!

We hold an annual Irish dancing competition at the attached convention center, and all of our attendees stay at the Marriott. They've recently renovated all of the upstairs room and they are just beautiful; wall-mounted flat screen TV's, LED lighting, frosted glass pocket doors on the bathrooms, and laminate flooring instead of carpet. Outstanding! The hotel staff was just lovely...

We were here for a conference on the day the underground pipes blew in July 2016. The food was super good. Loved the infused water in the lobby. The bed was comfy. Nice location. We will be back next year.

If you are staying here on business, do not let them give you a corner room. There is no desk in the room and when I complained they sent up an old side table with a desk chair. I had to beg to be moved to a room with a desk even though I'm a Platinum Marriott member.
