Stayed here for homecoming/girls weekend. Really appreciated the ease of check-in, checkout, and parking. The beds were comfortable and the room was very quiet (shower did not shake the wall). Can't beat the location and plenty of places to eat nearby. If I were to quibble, it would be the lack of an exhaust fan in the bathroom and that... More

Great place to stay if you have to visit Michigan State University. This hotel is within walking distance of MSU, shopping and dining along Grand River Rd. Rooms are very comfortable. Spacious lobby has an upscale feel. Very professional and friendly staff. The hotel prepares a football game day tailgating event for all guests.

Stayed here for the MSU Homecoming weekend. Could not ask for a more perfect location, right in the middle of "downtown" East Lansing and right across from the university. The lobby was a great place to hang out to watch the game highlights while having drinks and snacks. The way the lobby is designed, it is very open to everyone... More

I had a very packed and hi pressure weekend. The Marriott was so comfortable and welcoming with all the upgrades to rooms and lobby! In the past, this was a kind of throw back hotel. Not so any more. I had a clean, spacious room with comfortable bedding. The lobby bar/restaurant is such a wonderful concept! I didn't expect something... More

This is our third time staying at this Marriott (annually for a football game). You can't beat the location as you can walk to everything. They did a nice job updating the lobby and making it more welcoming and convenient for getting food/going to the bar. . .a good atmosphere. The service was very good with the staff very accommodating... More

Outside of its great location, there was nothing very great about this hotel. Parking is in a garage located beneath the hotel itself, but finding the people elevator to get you to/from the lobby is VERY confusing. The hotel gives you 3 parking passes that you pay for when you check in. It's inconvenient. Lobby was under construction for my... More

Stayed there for 4 days and it was really good! The beds are really comfortable. The food was good too. It is near downtown East Lansing, some good restaurants and bars, and it is near Michigan State University too. Loved it.

We have stayed at the Marriott at University Place on a couple of occasions, the last being this past long weekend as we took our daughter to MSU. Our experiences have been nothing but positive. The front desk staff are terrific (many of them hospitality business majors at MSU) and made us feel welcome at the onset of our stay.... More

The hotel lobby is being renovated but that won't have any impact on staying here during construction. The issue is their wifi, I'm on the 7th floor and the wifi is non-existent, called tech support for hotel and they said everything is working normally and that perhaps I could use the wifi in the lobby. Their "normal" is horrific, if... More

My experience here was just well average. Check in was in the late evening and after a long day of travel I made the journey to my room and the keys didn't work. Not the best start. The room was small but clean. The coffee service was there but had not been refreshed I was told the room had a... More
