I stayed with my family recently (with two young children, ages 3 and 6) in this hotel for a brief getaway, had a free Marriott Rewards night to burn and thought it would be fun to stay downtown. We had a great time with the location, the hotel is located at the Convention Center within easy walking distance of several restaurants and right across the street from the AT&T Winterfest Outdoor Ice Skating rink (and a Krispy Kreme!). There is quite a bit to do in the area, with museums, restaurants and the concert hall. The hotel lobby is quite nice and open (with a Starbucks in the lobby and a very nice Christmas tree in December) and so is the bar/restaurant, and the hotel was very clean. However, the pool was extremely cold (too cold to use, probably 60 degrees), the room with two beds only had doubles (too small), and the noise from the hall was quite loud. Overall, a great location and clean hotel, but it was lacking in a few key areas for family travel.
Pros: Great location for restaurants and events, clean, modern rooms.
Cons: Double beds, poor noise insulation to hallway, very cold pool temperature.
Tips: There is free parking nights/weekends in many downtown decks within 1-2 blocks of this hotel, even when events are going on at the concert hall, if you don't want to pay $12 for valet parking.
