“Better than expected...”
Reviewed 20 October 2004

Since our daughter is a student in the 'Inland Empire', we have been looking for a good hotel to use as a base when we visit her...the Marriott just may be the one! The room was large and fairly quiet, the food was better than expected, and they even have a small Starbucks in the lobby.

The only complaint was some road noise in the room...the biggest surprise was how nice downtown Riverside was. We will return.

This hotel met and exceeded all of our expectations. My husband and I were there on a business/leisure trip and we were very much satisfied. The service, quality of the rooms, and overall persona of the hotel was magnificent. We will definitely stay there again.

Excellent hotel for business travel. I stayed for several days to do business in the area and found the hotel very clean and well maintained. Front Office was very friendly and restaurant is Italian with a pretty good selection. The lounge was the best part, Martini's Lounge had a great selection of martinis and new appetizer menu was the best. Bartenders were very good and attentive.

I was traveling alone on business and found the hotel a great place to come home to. Rooms are excellent and the beds are the best I have every slept in. For business the High Speed Internet was faster than my office and the Wireless in the lobby areas worked great. Starbucks Coffee opened really early, which worked for me at 5:30 a.m.

Fitness Center was good for the size hotel and concierge lounge staff were very helpful in suggesting things to do. This is a downtown hotel with an outdoor pedestrian mall that has lots of antique and gift shops.

Overall, one of the best hotel stays I have had. Staff was well trained and professional. Keep up the good work! Marriott hotels are never the cheapest, but this one is a great value.

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times over the past year. With the exception of the Mission Inn, this is probably the best big hotel in Riverside. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Room service has always been great and the staff very courteous. Olio's food is fine, but the menu is over-priced. If I didn't use a discounted room rate, I would spend the extra money to stay at the Mission Inn.

This is a clean, quiet place to stay.

Nothing special but okay if you have another "agenda" in the area. Fun to walk down to the Mission Inn for dinner and stroll along the pedestrian mall with more consignment shops than you ever could imagine existed! Shabby chic heaven.
the hotel had a sall ish but well kept pool and a very warm and strong-jetted outdoor jacuzzi which was heavenly.
Breakfast at the Olio was adequate; service a bit spotty.

Overall, an okay place to stay for business or shopping. By no means a "resort" type hotel.

Note: We found the beds to be somewhat hard on both our stays; but then again, everyone's taste varies on this topic!

Had to go to the Riverside Marriott for training purposes. I was glad that I was able to get a travel industry rate of $79.50. It was not worth more than that. It was dissapointing that the supply of 25 refrigerators were already depleted due to millitary staying there for 3 months. Wanted to save a meal and was given a box to fill with ice to keep cold overnight. I was hoping to use the pool or the workout room, but it was not up to par. I would stay there again if I have to, but only at the $79.50 rate. Olio restaurant was nice but a bit overpriced.
The best part was the room service. Be careful to note that the gratuity is already included.
