As hotel in the Marriott Chain of hotels, I walked in with certain expectations about what the lobby would look like, the rooms would look like and what amenities would be offered. I will state that I feel they kept up to my expectations for the most part. I will say the lobby was very clean, very welcoming and had many great places to sit and visit with friends. The elevator was an issue for the first half day I was there, they only had one up and running, so the wait time at the elevator was very long, sometimes up to 15 minutes. Once it was fixed the problem went away so the wait time for an elevator was reduced to less than 3 minutes at most times of day. The rooms were clean, welcoming and were a very nice size. Our room had 2 closets, which worked out well for all the clothes we had along. The bathroom, however, was very tiny. There was very little counter space for make up, curling iron etc., which is why the blow dryer was hanging on the back of the bathroom door and would bang upon closing and opening, which was rather irritating during the night. The staff for the most part were very friendly, I only encountered one person that was rather rude and that was most likely because she was the only one at the desk and seemed to be over worked. They could have used a couple people at the desk at a time on a busy weekend. Pool was great, but didn't have long enough hours and didn't open very early in the morning which was a disappointment, but overall it was a great facility. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling as it was in a very convenient location to many different land marks.
