We stay at Marriott properties all over the world. This courtyard is spacious, clean, and friendly. Pool area is large and welcoming. We spent some time relaxing in the hot tub. We had a room with 2 queen beds, and the room was particularly spacious. Very happy with this property!

The staff is awesome!! My husband and I had a Marriott e certificate and we decided to take a road trip to enjoy the fall colors for our anniversary. The staff surprised us with an upgrade to the Presidential Suite. And as if that wasn't enough, they left a card and bottle of wine. WOW - words cannot express our... More

Recently renovated still feels a bit outdated and is overpriced considering other options in downtown lacrosse that are just as nice but the staff was friendly and the river view is nice but I am not sure it's worth the extra cost I did bring up the increase to the manager who was very nice said it was due to...

This hotel is right in the Mississippi River and trust me, the view is priceless. I stayed for couple of nights here. A little expensive but worth it. Not sure, it will be a better choice during winter but I would strongly recommend staying here during summer for sure. Bistro is okay, as it being courtyard. I did not like... More

Stayed here on business recently. Great location right on the MS river. The rooms were updated, but you could still feel the years on them. The gym is rather small, but adequate (would be nice to have more weights!!) and the pool is a bonus. The real stars were the staff. Great front desk staff and an incredible housekeeping staff....

Good morning LALela27, Thank you for taking the time to complete a survey about your property on Tripadvisor and to call out the great service you recieved. We were updated and completely renovated in the past two years but the actual building and room sizes (original since 1993) cannot be altered or updated in size or layout which is unfortunate....

Almost directly under the "blue bridge" that crosses the Wisconsin channel of the Mississippi River. Get a river front room to enjoy the boating and sun lovers if you stay during the warm months. Service and check in is great, room is clean and perfect; the little bistro is convenient and the river walk is nice for enjoying walks along... More

9/7/14 - Great place to stay in LaCrosse. Right on Mississippi with a nice 'riverwalk' to stretch your legs. Easy walking distance to all the restaurants / bars on the main street. Check-in staff was great (around 9pm). The staff in the 'lounge' and for breakfast were equally great - friendly and helpful. Free ample parking, no loud noises from... More

We love this location right on the river, and walking distance to downtown. The rooms are great, and the lobby is nicely designed. With a checkout time of noon, it seems strange to only have "The Bistro" open until 10 am. Hardly time to get up and going and have breakfast for some of us!!

Thank you Julie L for the kind review on Trip advisor! It is true that our Bistro closes for full breakfast service at 10AM on weekends BUT, we can offer you a cup of coffee or hot Starbucks drink anytime of day or night as all of our front desk staff are fully trained on Barista duties.

Our family met the family of two of my college roommates for the night, so 14 people. Because there were so many of us, we kind of took over the lobby when it came to supper.
