Visalia Marriott at the Convention Center
Ranked #6 of 14 Hotels in Visalia
Reviewed 28 February 2014

The Marriott Visalia is a nice hotel with a great location. The convention side has a nice view of the city and mountains in the distance. There are many restaurants and small shops within walking distance. The Starbucks and hotel restaurant are both very good.

The downside is that the main street side of the hotel is a bit loud and I had trouble sleeping when I was on that side of the hotel. The workout room and spa were both only OK. I've seen a lot better in other Marriott's.

Make sure to visit Sequoia National Forest while you are in the area.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the convention center. The main road on the other side is noisy.

Todd S.

Thank you for your feedback, I am glad you were able to enjoy the Starbucks and our restaurant upon your visit. We sincerely regret the disturbance. Our downtown location can mean extra street activity, as much as we try to contain it. We will always do our best to meet your requests, we look forward to your return Visalia visit soon.

Regards,
Carrie

Stayed here for one night en route from lake tahoe to palm springs. Plus points are a nice big car park. Quick check in and friendly lively bar, the hotel is within easy walking distance of main street where the bars and restaurants are. Rooms are spacious if a little dated. The concierge lounge is nothing to write home about. Food ran out at breakfast and i had to chase up the staff to restock the hotplates. It wasnt really worth it. Runny eggs, ovrrcooked bacon and stale bread. So to sum up its okay in parts good but not excellent.

I believe the hotel is in the process of being rebranded, so perhaps it and the staff were not at their best. The restaurant was shut for a convention/meeting of some kind- and odd thing for an hotel to do without an alternative eating place. The staff were blase about this, and not at all helpful. But to be charitable, they were perhaps feeling a little insecure. The location, thankfully, is handy for the main street with lots of restaurants to choose from.

Mr. Skipper,

I apologize your experience was less than exemplary. We are certainly not being re-branded and am concerned how that impression came across to give you that feeling. Marriott Hotels and Resorts has create a new greatroom atmosphere, whereby our dining experience is a lounge lobby dining. Our dining room is open for breakfast and by popular demand, and the new greatroom experience efforts, we host our lunch and dinner in our lobby lounge. I apologize that we did not make that very clear, as you were unaware this was your option. I would love if you have the opportunity, please contact me directly, as I wish to understand more of your experience.

Regards,
Carrie

I have stayed in this hotel several times and I would never change if I have to be near Visalia.
It is not far from Sequoia National Park, so if you are on the way from Los Angeles or San Francisco, you might stop and spend the night there. Walking distance from the hotel you have few good choices of restaurants: the Italian and the Brazilian ones are very good!
The parking is quite large and free of charge, so definitely a good place if you have your own or a rental car. Highway 99 is pretty close.

This hotel is older but has been kept in very nice condition. The staff is good, the services seem to be good and it is very conveniently located. We were there on a weekend, so I can't comment on the concierge lounge. The air conditioning blew cold but has been set so that the room did not fully cool off but this hotel was better than most. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of the charming downtown. The hotel gave us a map with 45 restaurants on it, all within walking distance on Main Street. See my review for Fazio's which was terrific. The hotel restaurant is only open for breakfast (very good) but dinner was available in the bar area. There was a big party going on in one of the convention rooms (it is close to or part of the convention center) so we didn't try the food. It looked simply but good.

Excellent central situation, plenty of nearby restaurants to choose from. Good fitness room, even a shoe shine stand.
Breakfast room is very small. Worth checking if any groups in house and if they have included breakfast and what time they are leaving. Go early or later....overall, pretty good hotel.

This Marriott is close to the centre of Visalia yet it's surprisingly quiet. It's a useful base if you want to visit the National Parks nearby. The hotel is comfortable and the staff welcoming. We ate in the bar area and I can recommend the Caesar salad with chicken, plus the blue cheese salad with the steak.

Room Tip: For a quiet night ask for a room at the rear of the hotel.
