I attended a conference at this Marriott and was very pleased. Rooms were comfortable and it's in walking distance to all the great restaurants and bars in the city. There is a fantastic lobby that's very welcoming and the piano bar lounge on the second floor is a great place to unwind.

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here. It's convenient for an overnight getaway from the house for adult time. The staff is very professional and accommodating. The beds are comfortable. Having such a nice restaurant such as Shula's is very nice. If there is a large event I recommend requesting a room far from the...
