Location is excellent - close to campus and all you'd need to do in the area, yet in a quiet area removed from Rt 1. It's got a lodgey feel - it's only 3 stories high, and all floors are easily accessible via elevator, or a wide open staircase in the lobby. Rooms were basic Marriott style, but small. I... More

Very pretty, and very clean, I do like this hotel but if u think u can survive without their wifi just know ahead of time that it's in the middle of nowhere so without it your phone is a paper weight. Prob on purpose so they can sell their wifi other than that you can keep busy with all the... More

I had a one night "staycation" at this property just to get away, celebrate my godmother's birthday and to receive a spa treatment. The staff were friendly, however, don't really expect much if you're a Marriott gold member. The lounge is not open on the weekends except for Sunday Breakfast and unlike other hotels they don't offer you a drink... More

This was a very nice hotel nestled in the woods in a beautiful setting. Rooms were clean and nice. Food is expensive, and nothing else is nearby. The lobby area is a really nice vaulted ceiling space that feels like a Frank Lloyd Wright's student built a log cabin.

Room was spacious and appeared newly renovated with plush mattress and down duvet cover. Concierge and rest of desk staff were very helpful and accommodating. Grounds are wooded with bikes to borrow and a jogging path through the trees.Short drive to University.

I recently stayed here for three nights for business meetings. I was so impressed at the hotel staff- they all say hello and are helpful. The food was delicious and the pillows and bedding on the bed were like sleeping on a cloud. This hotel is in a nice wooded area with a beautiful lobby.

The hotel was nice enough, and the staff is VERY friendly and helpful, but I have a couple of gripes...and I hate to gripe! But, I'm very angry with Marriott right now that they refuse to offer free coffee in the lobby at their hotels. So, you go to the lobby and get a "starbucks" coffee (whatever), and you put... More

Good morning, I understand by your review that you were not completely satisfied with your stay with us. I first want to apologize for that! I completely understand as I too would be upset if there wasn't complimentary coffee in the lobby and would really be upset if there was noise outside my guestroom all night which kept me from...
