I recently stayed here during a VEX Robotics competition at the Convention Center. I mention this because, we had a robot with us. We stayed on a 2 bedroom loft suite, it was 2 adults and 2 children. I stayed in the room upstairs with my son, and below was a teacher and another class mate of my sons. The space we had was great! It allowed us to work on our robot in the evenings. One night, I 'hosted' the rest of team which had been staying elsewhere--that meant I had 12 people for dinner, and was able to prepare it easily in the simple kitchen, using the fantastic outdoor BBQ area!
The room was clean, as I had expected booking a Marriott product. I like the consistency. Bed was firm, and sheets clean and crisp.
The INCLUDED breakfast was WAY BETTER than I had thought it would be. My son made his own fresh waffles every day. I liked that the trays were not super large, and they were continually being changed and refreshed.
Best was the friendly staff and service we received from them. We had logistical headaches with shipping containers being dropped off, and we needed to store large boxes. All I can say without the boring details was that the staff went out of their way to 'work with us' and help us.
LOCATION....well, we had to haul a large heavy crate (3'X3') and tool boxes back and forth to the convention center. We 'thought' we could walk it with a simple hand trolley--we were wrong, we needed to rent a car just to haul the crate. But, as for simple walking distance to the convention center--it was perfect, a very easy 10 minute walk. Dining options were just across the street. We are already making our plans to return next year. Our rate was no more or less than anywhere else, divided by 4, add in breakfast....All in all, we felt we received value & service for what we paid.
