Stayed here recently for a wedding. The hotel itself is in great condition - the grounds are nice and the lobby area had an open, inviting design. We had no issues with our room. For the most part, it was everything I've come to expect from a Marriott.
However, I must report on one bad experience - our family has dietary restrictions and so we always bring our own food. One morning we met some family in the dining area just off the lobby & asked for a couple of bowls to eat some cereal with the (non-dairy) milk we brought. Right after I received the bowls a food manger of some sort informed us that we were "not allowed to eat our food in the dining area," as there was "food that could be purchased." We had the option of "eating in our room." (how nice) I could immediately tell by the manager's tone that she was not to be reckoned with and that explaining our dietary restrictions would fall on deaf ears. She did relent a bit by saying that we could "eat outside", which turned out to be pleasant, all things considered. I really think that hotels should look to support choices of their guests and not make them feel like second-class citizens just because they don't want to buy a bowl of oatmeal. The dining area was plenty full (though not overcrowded). I still remain shocked at the way I was treated as a guest.
In summary, very nice hotel, but beware if you bring your own food into the dining area!!!
