Would like to thank the staff at the Marriot that went out of there way to make our stay a great one. Friday night was a little ruff in our hall, but the staff took care of a situation very professionally. Rooms are small we had a view of the parking ramps. When you are looking for a heated pool...

The lobby is quite nice. Renovated. But the business center is pay for internet -- pretty bush. The rooms are ok but tired. Dents and dings in furnishings. Beds comfortable. Clean. Parking extra $11/d. Location central near university. Pool is nice but small. It's fine but not amazing. Would stay again but largely because of lack of alternative.

I was here for a wedding May 2014. The hotel was under renovation at the time and the staff went out of their way to make everything as easy as possible. The staff was super friendly. Rooms were nice & beds & pillows comfortable. The location is great & super handy for food & shopping. You can walk anywhere from... More

Perfect for visiting MSU - quick walk to the school, hotel is well kept, excellent concierge lounge, small but adequate gym. My only complaint is that all the restaurants that are walkable there are really lousy college type places, apparently you have to get in the car to get a decent meal. Note there is a charge for parking.

For the second time staying here when I had a problem. They took it seriously and did their best to fix it. The door to the concierge lounge was slamming closed and the sound reverberated right into my room. I could even feel it in the shower. They immediately called maintenance and took care of it. I received an email... More

I made a single night stay here in December 2014. This was a nice property, though nothing genuinely remarkable. Parking is under the hotel in an apparently city-owned garage; parking fee was $9 with unlimited in and out privileges, fairly reasonable as parking goes. The underground parking arrangement would be particularly desirable when there's snow or ice on the ground.... More

I was on a business trip and of several hotel options I chose this - a good choice as the others were not close to the centre of town. A good selection of bars and restaurants are within walking distance. This hotel has comfortable rooms - but mine had noisy aircon so I've dropped it a couple of points. Front... More

Nestled right in the heart of Spartan land lives a place of plenty (horrible pun, sorry) – the East Lansing Marriot. There is absolutely nothing here to seriously dislike. The location is perfect for MSU travellers, right on M.A.C., just a stone’s throw from the regal buildings of North campus. Parking is included in with the room and I never... More

My husband and I spent a night at this hotel in November of 2014. The front desk staff provides excellent service. There is a $9 per night parking fee and the parking area is just below the hotel and the elevator goes up to the floors in the hotel. We stayed on the concierge floor which provided appetizers before dinner... More

We stayed here as part of a wedding party, and the property from check-in through check-out was incredible. First off, the location can't be beat -- right at the north edge of the MSU campus, so fast access to anywhere on campus you'd want to go. The staff was very accommodating throughout our stay, ranging from our fast check-in to... More
