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

I had a week long training and stayed here. It was very nice and just remodeled! Everything was clean, neat and orderly. With training, we also had them provide lunches and it was very good. There is a CVS right across the street for anything you might have forgotten and a lot of restaurants in walking distance.

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
