I've stayed at the Marriott Downtown many times over the past few years. The rooms are pretty consistent (spring for an Executive Suite if you can). The restaurant on site is pretty disappointing - they do burgers and that's about it, and the same for room service. If you don't like burgers you are pretty much out of luck.
The concierge lounge on the top floor is OK - the breakfast is good and the late night cookies are appreciated, though it's closed at the weekend.
Wifi is pretty expensive if you don't get it for free as part of executive club membership and not exactly speedy (fine for browsing but don't even think about streaming or downloading anything).
Staff are OK - the doorman is always friendly and looks out for the hotel's guests but reception staff, club lounge and room staff are efficient but not particularly friendly.
The worst point was the breakfast in the main restaurant. I had a truly dreadful experience there - I was kept waiting "for a table" even though the restaurant was ~20% full with empty tables everywhere. It took 20 minutes of waiter walking past me before I could even get anyone to take my order. When my cereal turned up it was without milk which I was told my waiter would be "right back with". 10 minutes later I had to intercept another member of staff to actually get it. The danish basket had a couple of items - the croissant was as dry as a bone and tasted like it was at least a day old and the orange juice was watery and certainly not freshly squeezed. Very poor - and extremely expensive!
