My wife and why were looking for somewhere different to stay not far from Huntsville so we decided to go to Florence. Hotel was nice and clean and the pool looked like a very nice pool even thought it was to cold to swim. We will probably go back when we want to get away. Loved the balcony that looks... More

We have stayed in this property on various trips to the Shoals. It is a comfortable hotel with an excellent staff. They have an great restaurant. Don't go there without trying the she crab soup. We hope to be back.

We happened upon this lovely hotel during a trip taken on a whim from Memphis. It is as luxurious as any big city hotel. The rooms are very generously sized. The furninshings are tasteful and up to date and well kept. No knicks, no marks. Every room comes with a balcony and view that is spectacular! There is a fridge... More

Weekend getaway with my husband, planned this in October of last year. Requested a king size bed, when we arrived the Manager stated they only had queen. Then I had paid for two nights they only showed one... Heat in our room barely worked. Parking at the hotel is terrible.Only positive note we did order room service and the food... More

My husband and I enjoyed this hotel very much. The staff was awesome. We enjoyed the live music and food in the restaurant. The rooms are so comfortable and roomy. We enjoyed sitting out on the large balcony off our room. One negative is, there is no microwave in the rooms and what you think is a refrigerator is only... More

Spent a weekend here mid January to celebrate my husbands birthday. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by David, we could not help notice the attentive, friendly personnel - they really seemed to love being there and interacting with the guests. That evening, having spent a lovely time enjoying the music in Swampers, we found that we were... More

Made it a little getaway for our anniversary, and who would think this gorgeous hotel would be in Florence, Alabama! We had never been to Florence and we were taken away at this huge hotel in such a small city. Very nice room however, the air conditioning made a "dripping" noise ALL NIGHT LONG! It made for a miserable sleep,... More

The beach was too faraway and the Smoky's were too cold; so in our search for a weekend getaway found this spectacular property on the beautiful Tennessee River in reasonable driving distance where temps are a little warmer than home. Marriott Shoals has made me look really good. This is a great hotel with good on site amenities-high end restaurant,... More

We went for a sorely needed long weekend to rest and relax! The room was clean, quiet and well appointed with great views of the river and dam (the winter time loss of leaves on trees helps this view a lot) **The service of the friendly hotel staff remains excellent. Enjoyed the live music in the bar as well as... More

Hotel is beautiful. Only a few dollars more than the Residence Inn, well worth it. Staff was great. I am a Marriott platinum member, asked for upgrade and recieve a very nice room. Concierge Lounge was fantastic. One on the best I have ever been too. Only complaint, towels were very rough.
