Treated to great views of the downtown skyline and the Ohio River. The parking garage is very convenient to anyone staying at the hotel. The hotel lobby is very nice and well done. The room itself is what to be expected from a Marriott; clean and neat. The concierge lounge had one of the best breakfast offerings I've seen from... More

Check in with Danisha was great. She was fast, professional and genuinely interested in making our stay great. Loved my room and the view of the river. The workout and pool areas were nice, clean and well maintained. The fruit bowl in the workout area in the morning is a nice touch. Thanks Marriott!

Thursday night bar scene and music was fabulous...not sure of the 3 piece string band (one was named Hickory, so he said) and service and friendly staff for the bar and the hotel. We also stayed there and the facility was clean and roomy and quiet at night. Enjoyed the complete overall stay

Wonderful hotel! Since it is downtown, parking has two options: Park yourself and walk back to the hotel, or for only $5 more valet parking. It tool less than 5 min for valet to bring our vehicle and it was toasty warm on a cold windy day. Hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. Several restaurants are within walking distance....
