The hotel is laid out with an extremely large open floor in the middle at the lobby level and rooms around the outside walls up nine floors. Smaller conferences are likely to use the facility.
I found that the bar and the lounge in the open area on the lobby floor carried a lot of noise directly into the rooms, all the way up to my room on the ninth floor. The only thing buffering the noise was the room's door. So while the hotel was very effective at blocking out noise from outside the hotel, the noise from inside was a problem.
As a Marriott Rewards member, I tried using the club lounge twice, but was very disappointed by the food. One evening it was just over-heated fried something-or-nother. The breakfast was ok, but I've had a lot better at hotels one-third of the rate.
Although I didn't use the gym, a number of colleagues reported that it was small, stuffy, and hot. Apparently there was a line for the treadmills. Cleaning materials were unavailable to sanitize the equipment.
Bottom line: The pricing for rooms here is pretty high compared to what you get.
