Stayed here while on a work trip. Hotel was clean and the front desk girl was unbelievably hospitable and kind! The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. Would stay again. Location was good and is walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. I would recommend this hotel to anyone

I stayed here whilst travelling with family (spread over two rooms). The room was clean with a large bed. The AC was deeply irritating (had to unplug the thing in the end). The staff were very friendly and helped out with storing cool bags and in recommending a local place to eat. It also seemed a little pricier than it... More

I've stayed at this property twice in recent weeks - both times for several days at a time. Consequently, this review is a compilation; curiously, both stays differed very little. The staff is excellent. Housekeeping was always pleasant, maintenance was on-the-ball and very helpful. Front desk staff was kind and focused. And the bistro staff was truly exceptional. Management is... More

Two years ago this hotel was remodeled to create an airier lobby with adjoining Starbuck’s bistro. These changes have definitely improved the experience for the overnight visitor. The lobby ceilings are high. There is plenty of natural light now. There is a wall mounted wide screen adjacent to the lobby which displays weather and traffic. The spacious Starbuck’s bistro offers... More

From my check-in experience (Thanks, Ashley!) to excellent service in the Cafe, to the best housekeeper ever (Terry), to the General Manager (so sorry, did not get her name, blonde, friendly and oh-so conscientious), the staff at this hotel are top-notch. I have stayed in five star hotels and not not gotten the genuine caring and attention I received here!... More

Although my room was not ready at normal checkin time, it was worth the wait. It was very clean and appropriately decorated with new looking paint, wallpaper, and bed linens. The bed had several pillows of differing firmnesses so I was able to find a couple that were just perfect for me. The bed was heavenly--so wonderful that I slept... More

Booked a room for 1 night. Noisy HVAC unit. Worst was the breakfast. Ordered 4 cooked breakfasts, coffees and juice which at $60 was bad enough but they brought the wrong food twice, had to recheck my bill 3 times and the final meal was delivered 55 minutes after we ordered. Lots of apologies because they were so "busy" but... More

This was about a basic stay as one will find. Nothing fancy, but clean & comfortable room. Speed check in, room had a refrigerator, comfortable bed, and a well stocked bath. HVAC system was a bit loud. Didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on the food. Winter so no use of the pool. Did not hit the fitness... More

Outside it doesn't look like much.... Actually it looks more like a microtel than a Courtyard, but, inside it is all Marriott. Rooms are updated, clean, we'll equipped and great variety regarding TV channels. The handicap rooms have direct access to the parking area, facilitating the entrance of the the people in need. For sure a property you can try... More
