The sign entering the area immediately made me think- it's going to be an old Marriott building. It's a pretty big hotel by Marriott next to the highway standards. You drive all the way into an office complex-until you reach the end and voila there is the Marriott.
We were here for a wedding this past weekend and the staff was very concerned with their guest's experience. I have not experience this kind of attention at a Marriott in a long time. I have to say the staff made our experience a lovely one. Our room was perfect for our needs. The rooms remind me of an older Marriott-that is they are not dated but they were all on the smaller side from what I could tell. Our room had a king size bed in it.and it took up most of the space in the room-but the hot hot shower and bath and body works toiletries made up for the lack of space.
Oh -be sure to plug the iron into the wall socket and not into the computer bar.. you'll short a fuse and have to move the iron across the room.. simple enough to re-set but just a good to know if you have a hot iron, ironing boards and luggage spread through out.
The indoor pool was clean and the temperature perfect. Breakfast was yummy with an omelet station, fresh fruit and enough option to choose from. The options were not over the top but the quality of what was offered was top notch. The beds were super comfortable. The fire was on when we walked around the lobby. There is coffee (pay for) available around the corner and sushi made in the same area in the evenings.
The bar hosted our rowdy St. Patrick's Day wedding after party crowd very well. I'm sure that this hotel has a much different crowd on weekdays given it's location than the wedding goers we were during the weekend. We were the only people in the lounge and bar area on St. Patrick's day night so the location unless there is a wedding or some sort of "event" at the hotel... it is likely to be a pretty quiet place to chill. If you are looking for quiet- you might want to ask if there is anything going on there that weekend.
We were able to sleep with no issues and able to participate as desired with the wedding party peeps. It was a wonderful weekend and although I didn't think much of the hotel itself when I walked in- I left saying- this was a great stay in a nice hotel with a dedicated staff.
Later in the spring or during the summer when their outdoor pool is open I bet that the inner court yard is gorgeous.- I saw some of the rooms had balcony's and if the weather was nice while we were there- I might have asked to see if we could have upgraded to one if the cost wasn't too much. but again, I truly can't say enough about the staff at this location.
Being a family that travels frequently - having a nice, responsive and friendly staff- really made this Marriott stand out from the "rest".
