Marriott Huntsville is set in an open green area just south of I-565 near Huntsville's Research Park. Butting up to the Redstone Arsenal, the beautiful tree-covered hillside is likely to remain green. The space and rocket center makes a very interesting view. It's also a very convenient location for visits to Huntsville, although traffic is light enough in the city that you can get wherever you need without much difficulty.
The rooms are a very nice size, laid out so that they get great light from outside. The greenery brings in a variety of birds, so the chirping outside is a pleasant background sound. Like all Marriotts, the beds are extremely comfortable. The furniture is set up with a comfortable office chair so that you can use your computer ergonomically.
There are many positives to the hotel, but I will lay out a couple of negatives. With three elevators, there can be a long wait for an elevator when everyone is checking out together. The wait isn't so long that I'd have to mark the hotel rating down for this, however. I do enjoy the view from the top (seventh) floor. The shower and toilet are in a spearated room from the sink, which is the right way to arrange it, but there aren't any towel racks inside the shower/toilet room so you need to leave your towel outside when you shower.
I'd definitely stay here again. This is by far the best hotel I've stayed at in the Huntsville area. While it is more expensive than the Hampton Inn or the Madison motels, it isn't much more expensive, still within reasonable limits. I find that I enjoy my visit more when staying at a hotel I aprpeciate.
