It was a good stay, but not a GREAT stay! It's a Marriott after all. I expected to want for nothing, but that was not the case. So I'm spoiled and I thought we'd have a refrigerator in our room and a microwave...but alas no. The bathroom was tiny...like door almost touching the toilet small, but it was functional.
So that's the bad stuff...the good stuff was an amazing view from room #2721 - overlooking the opposite side of the Mile and all the high rises you could want. The location was very convenient since it's right on the Mile, Garrett's and Gino's are only a few blocks away. There is an awesome lobby bar where you can get desserts and drinks and even real food - which probably accounts for why there is no fridge, etc.
The staff was very courteous and very friendly. On that I could not have wanted for more. Also having Starbucks in the lobby does a girl good in the morning.
Paid wifi in the room at $14.95/day for basic...UGH! Big downer for me. But FREE wifi in the lobby and on the 2nd floor lobby - and it was pretty fast - but a pain if you just want to check email or crush some candy before you fall asleep.
