We stayed here for the weekend. This location is unbelievably convenient to everything. Don't rent a car, take the train station from the airport to Market Street. When you walk out you are actually underneath the tower part of the hotel. You don't even have to go outside to access Marriott. I wished they had this listed on their website and since they don't, I'm sharing it with you. The train ride was $8/pp and took less time than it would have if we took a cab. Ask for the upgrade, it wasn't given automatically. We took the upgrade to the tower section. It was great, we had a huge bathroom, separate living room and big bed. More room than the 2 of us needed but it was great that we did. The hotel is in the middle of everything. Ross, Marshall's, Kmart, CVS, 7Eleven and much more all within a short walking distance. If you didn't bring it, you can find it. The service was great. This hotel is bigger than most. There is a large foyer on both sides of the hotel entrances. There is also a big bar in the center of the foyer. After 6pm, only over 21 allowed in there. This place fills up fast. There is no breakfast for Elite members but they did offer us an additional 2k points as well as the concierge level is not open on the weekends. The website did not list that. The website says that the concierge level was closed on Tuesdays so we were surprised to learn otherwise. You will still enjoy the stay and the convenience of everything around you.
