“Great time at the Marriott”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

I stayed here for 2 nights in March 2012:
-The rooms were overall an average size, but the sitting area seemed extra large
-The bathroom was a little small, could use some updating.
-Loved the magnified mirror in the bathroom
-TV stand and desk are combined, making it kind of weird to watch TV from the bed - the desk chair kept getting in the way
-Breakfast in the hotel by the lobby was delicious - one of the best hotel breakfasts I've had
-Conference spaces was well maintained, and the catering was good.

Room Tip: The Hooters across the street from the hotel is very loud at night - request a room on the opposite...

The hotel is directly in the city center and there are many things in walking distance. We have been there May 5th, so there was a big Mexican party and this was fun.
The staff was in general very friendly and we got a good restaurant recommendation. The rooms are ok, clean, but not the newest fashion or style, but this was good enough for us.
Due to the location off-site parking is very limited, so valet or hotel parking needs to be done.
The only exception was breakfast, though the breakfast was ok, the staff was a bit bored and it is always useful if you see a smile in the morning, but we did not get one.

We stayed here for a family wedding across the street at The City Club. Location has dining, shopping and nightlife just a few steps away. Staff was friendly, rooms were immaculate and the bed comfy. The horse drawn carriage at the corner of the property was an awesome plus. The food in Champions Bar was average and should be covered to stay hot while being brought from a remote kitchen. The hotel cannot help the street noise (we were on the 14th floor) so pack earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The concierge lounge was very nice and well appointed. Breakfast on the weekend in the hotel restaurant was delicious. The cornflake french toast with fruit and eggs benedict were done to perfection. I definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: A room not facing Trade St might be less noisy....

I recently stayed during a weekend in this centrally located hotel to attend a conference. The meeting facilities were conveniently located and access from my room to them were fast (via elevator) or escalator. I must say that this hotel is very well located to other downtown shopping, eating and night-life venues.

Room Tip: Courtyard view rooms are very quiet.

Superb hotel downtown. Stayed here in 2008 and reviewed it then. Since that time they have upgraded electronics and bedding.
Service is fantastic - greeted the kids with goodie bags. Rooms are very clean, albeit smallish which I believe is relective of the buidings age and is not a detractor to staying here.
Indoor pool continues to be a nice addition which some of the other downtown hotels (Omni) don't have.
Convenient location to theatre and lots of restaurants. Will stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for Trade Street view.

Concierge room staff a little too attentive at times. No meat choices for low carb breakfast.
Staff unable to provide options for me when I arrived late after long work day one night and missed the cutoff time for room service by 5 minutes. Not the usual Marriott service attitude and certainly unusual for platinum premier member.

Hotel restaurant very nice with highly competent staff. Best service I've had in a hotel restaurant - right balance of friendly attention and distance. Able to flex to special requests and still provide a special gourmet experience.

Room Tip: Elevators seemed slower than in other properties with updated programming. Consider that for floor...

Pro - Good location in Charlotte. Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. Our room was on the backside of the hotel on the 17th floor, and we didn't experience any noise related issues that others have noted.

Con - As a Marriott Platinum member, I just expect better from Marriott hotels. Our concierge level room was smaller than any room I've had in other hotels in the same area. The bathroom was so small it is impossible to even open the door while inside the bathroom without having to angle your body around it. Parking! My wife and I drove separately and when I arrived after her, I was told they had a one vehicle per room policy, which apparently is only enforced when the hotel is relatively full. Of course, there is no way for a customer to know that until you're actually at the hotel. Normally, even that wouldn't have been an issue, but a bike race had blocked the streets around the hotel and it took 30 mins to get to the alternative parking the hotel staff suggested (on the backside of the hotel). The hotel has your e-mail address. Would it hurt to send an alert that they would be changing their parking policies? The pool area should be nicer than it is. It certainly isn't as nice as the picture suggests.

Room Tip: The food at Aria one block away and the service in Aria's bar area are terrific.
