I would've given this place 5's across the board, but one of the elevators didn't work during our entire stay. I believe the hotel was at capacity with a large group, so it took forever to use it. Stairs aren't an option unless going between floors, so they weren't helpful to us on the second floor without setting off an... More

Great customer service from the moment I checked in to this hotel. Hotel Room was very clean and spacious. Several locations to plug in your phones, IPads, etc., throughout the room.

I could not get the group discount at Marriott next to the Convention Center, because those rooms were already booked. The hotel clerk transferred me to this hotel only 2 miles away from my bridge tournament. The lobby had access to free use of computers, and wifi was included in my room for my IPad. You can get a discount... More

I needed a room for 2 nights during my stay in Riverside. Right away when I walked in i notice the lobby. I had to stop, sit down, and watch Jurassic Park. It looked great on the TV! The couches, chairs and tables made it very inviting. Everything was so modern. I was solo so I didn't hang out in... More

My fiancé and 2 teenage boys recently stayed here for New Years Eve 2015. Our plans were to see the Festival of Lights at the Mission Inn and the Courtyard Marriott was only 3 miles away and $130/night compared to the Mission Inn @ $300. I expected a dinky rundown hotel but this was quite the opposite. The rooms were... More

My hubby and I went for just one night (New Year's Eve) to the Riverside area and needed a place to stay. This hotel was conveniently located to the downtown area as well as outlying Riverside locations and between two major freeways. The staff was extremely pleasant and the rooms were very nice. It looked like this facility may have... More

My wife and I stayed here only one night, but we really liked our stay. Having enough updated USB plugs for all our 'gadgets' was a nice plus.

I thought I had made reservations at the Convention Center Marriott, and was told that happens a lot. They aren't far from each other, maybe two miles, but very different areas of town. So just be sure you know which one you want. Lobby was renovated in the new Marriott style, very cozy and sleek. The room itself was nicely... More
