Let me preface this by saying I travel to and stay in Wichita about two weekends per month and have always stayed at the Hyatt Downtown simply for it's location to activities and the river trail (for weekend biking). This past weekend, I made the same reservations at the Hyatt for Friday and Saturday night before moving over to the Marriott for a professional conference on Sunday Monday and Tuesday.
I can officially say I have stayed at the Hyatt for the last time. Staying at both hotels on the same trip was such a revelation. The Hyatt was so loud and busy, doors slamming all hours of the night, people up and down the hallways all night partying and being inconsiderate of other travelers etc. Additionally, the sheets were very uncomfortable and the towels old and dirty.
The Marriott on the other hand, was a gift. It is immaculate and the service matches the appearance. The staff minimized the hassle of check in and check out and any needs were immediately addressed. The rooms were quiet, peaceful, clean and comfortable. The beds were sooooo very comfortable and very difficult to get out of in the morning.
The only disadvantage is the location, but weighed against the room quality, noise or lack thereof, and service, the location is worth it. I will be a Marriott customer from this day forward.
