I recently stayed on business for the first time at this property. Ironically, I saw Bill Marriott in an interview, and he said that he didn't exactly understand the concept either. I thought, why not take a chance and experience another Marriott brand?
I arrived into a fairly stark lobby, and I was greeted by an enthusiastic young staff from the front door to the front desk. The desk clerk promptly checked me in, but she failed to explain any of the amentities: internet, manager's reception, morning newspaper choice, etc. I had to ask separately about each. As well, she didn't welcome me as a Rewards Member.
The room was "cold" at best. Cold flooring, stark furnishings, no comfortable chair to be found, etc. The bathroom was very open to the room, and the lighting was more "hip" than effective to see yourself while shaving or bathing.
It appeared to me that this is Marriott's answer to the "W" chain. I have now had the experience, and I will return to my more standard Marriott offerings. If you are a Millenial and looking for "hip", this property is for you. For me, I'll go for my creature comforts.
