I stayed here for a weekend to enjoy some tourist time after working in the city for the week. Check in was very friendly and, as a Marriott platinum, I was upgraded to a higher Club room floor with an expansive southerly view. I was also given vouchers for a full breakfast in the restaurant. "We treat our elites right," said the front desk clerk and I tend to agree.
In addition to the view, the room was comfortable with upscale decor. If you want Internet, it is two-tiered ($13 for "standard" and $16 for "enhanced", unless your status or plan includes it). I took the "enhanced" and found the speed to be good (4.5-5 mbps). There is free internet in the lobby if you find this too expensive. There was nightly turndown service with chocolates and bottles of water.
The location is very convenient to I-5, if you are arriving by car. Parking is rather expensive. "$33 plus tax" it says on the website for self parking, but tax brings it to over $40. It is at least 6 blocks to the nearest Link light rail station. If you are on foot, it will be a relatively easy (if sometimes long) downhill walk to most everything downtown. Coming back, however, will be an uphill climb that will be quite taxing if you are out of shape.
This is a great property (especially if you are a Marriott elite), but going up that hill might be a little off-putting for some.
