First, the good. The staff here is great. Very friendly and helpful at the front desk; the airport shuttle service runs every 20 minutes starting at 4:20am. Return your rental if you have one the night before and take the shuttle in the morning; just call the front desk and they'll pick you up at the rental center. Every bit a Marriott on that count.
As others have noted, this property is really showing its age. While the staff keep the place clean, the furniture and rooms are clearly worn; our door was a bit "sticky" getting it open and closed. But, if you're only here for one night to catch a flight the next day, it's fine. For its age, 179 a night is a bit steep.
As Fun8s noted, we had a room on the top floor of the south wing, and the high vaulted ceiling definitely makes the room feel very big. Nice views of the lake as well.
