“convenient to space center”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

We had a pleasant stay here. Check in was a breeze and desk clerk was very helpful. Room was comfortable and clean. Some rooms have patios. Hotel is upgrading with a new lobby and flooring. Our room was on the concierge floor and it appeared to have been upgraded with new carpet, bedding andflat screen tv.,It was convenient having a small refrig and safe in room. Concierge lounge was nicely laid out and evening social hour had 3 hot hors d'oeuvres as well as fresh fruit, cheeses, crudites and chips and salsa. Dessert at concierge was merely some cookies, so that was disappointing.
HINT: You walk out the back door of hotel directly to U.S. Space and Rocket Center. How convenient is that?

Stayed here June 19th & 20. Old room - bathroom shower had pink tiles dating circa 1960. Hotel bath doesn't drain sufficient - 1-2" of standing water after my shower. Lobby under construction. They also did not email me my portfolio as custom with ALL other Marriott properties at which I stay (Gold elite with almost 50 nights this year). I called to request and they required me to email them requesting the bill to be emailed. The address I was given was a gmail address. WTH kind of podunk hotel is this? Shame to be affiliated with Marriott. I will stay at the Westin next time. MUCH MUCH nicer hotel and newer to for same price.

We stayed here on our way to Spacecamp (located right next to the Marriott).

Advantages:
- Close proximity to Spacecamp
- Comfy and spacious rooms
- Pillows were soft and fluffy
- Neat indoor/outdoor pool (but pool was really cold at night, even the indoor portion)

Disadvantages:
- You have to pay for internet service (WHY??? So many places cater to business travelers and offer free internet these days)
- No sauna/whirlpool
- Evidence of construction is a bit of a visual deterrent
- A bit pricey compared to similar hotels in the area

I stayed at this Marriott in June 2013 while I was in the area on business. The hotel was perfectly adequate, but the rooms felt more like a Courtyard than a Marriott. There are some good things about this place: The fitness room was well equipped, and probably about the right size for a place this size. Parking was free. The concierge lounge had a good hot breakfast, and they dropped off a newspaper at my door each morning. The location is convenient to Redstone and to the airport.

The lobby was being renovated. One night we ate in the sports bar (Otters?) and it was very run down, junky, and way past its prime. The waiter, who was very helpful, told us that it was also being renovated as part of the lobby renovation, so hopefully they will build something nicer. The concierge lounge was a bit small, and when I went up in the late afternoon, I found that only water and one type of soft drink was available. We needed a shuttle to and from the airport, but their shuttle was not working so they had us take a taxi; getting that straightened out did not go too smoothly, but in the end it all worked out.

Stayed here as part of a sports tournament group. The check-in process was a little less than ideal, primarily b/c of their renovations. We experienced delays because it appeared that the management was not ready for the crush of a big crowd. They do adhere to their customer service policies however, and any problems we had with the room or related service, the management took care of promptly. Looks like they are going through some growing pains, but all in all, this place was pretty good. Pool was great for the kids, it is next door to NASA Space Center, and the bartender was friendly and accommodating.

This is definitely an older property with definite renovations in progress. I wasn't sure if the room I was in was upgraded or not - I didn't ask.

The decor was - how shall I say - "mixed" - old school and modern. The bed was comfortable, but was facing the balcony, which was an incredible view of NASA Space Center! The strange part was there was a lot of empty space with seemingly no purpose, and the TV was facing a blank wall, which you'd have to physically turn to face you on the bed, or roll over the desk chair, either way - it was awkward. The walls look like they had the "cheap" apartment paint, some patch work with pastel salmon, covered up with a non-matching beige, and a light shade of light brown - none of it seemed to match.

The bathroom was also strangely empty with the commode about 6" away from the wall and about 2 feet from the shower tub and nothing inbetween with PINK square tiles on the wall.

It is a very quiet place, which as a business traveler I sincerely appreciated. EVERY staff person had the "southern hospitality", which I also sincerely appreciated. The food at the restaurant was down home, good cookin' with lots of flavor and GREAT service!

Would I stay here again - not sure. If you're looking for an upscale place, this is NOT it! If you're looking for a "nice", affordable, close to NASA Space Center, and decently comfortable - I'd say, this is the place for you.

Room Tip: Ask for a fully renovated room. One facing the NASA Space Center and one with a balcony would be a...

The rooms in this hotel need major renovation, particularly the bathrooms! They have been slightly updated - carpet & flat screen TV, but it looks as good as lipstick on a pig. They did the absolute minimum & it shows. The shower tile is 1970's pink. Somehow the room just feels old & a little dirty.

The other problem is the Starbucks cart doesn't open until 7 am!!

The Huntsville Westin is SO much nicer & in a much better area. Unless you need to be next door to the space center, I would highly suggest staying elsewhere.
