This is a surprisingly good hotel which seems to exemplify Marriott's makeover of its lower price brands. Very nice lobby (although one does not "stay" in a lobby), extremely spacious public spaces, convenient little restaurant (in a pinch) and coffee bar (nice). Paradise Bakery is a one minute walk away.
Rooms are reasonably priced, immaculate, and again, spacious, including a small but serviceable balcony outside a sliding glass door. Bathrooms are large and well-lit, with decent (but not high end) amenities. Housekeeping is efficient and unobtrusive.All in all, an excellent choice for that "neighborhood". Parking can be a bit of a problem, as the lot fills up, forcing guests to move to public (free) parking at an adjacent Events Center; still, not bad.
Only real detraction is, indeed, that Events Center. This can and does sometimes fill the hotel with excited young team members , sometimes with the attendant noise. Not too bad, but ask for a room far away from the elevator, and preferably on a higher floor, so noise from the gatherings in the lobby don't reverberate to your bed!
