The Marriott was an excellent venue for our conference and a wonderful place to relax. My room was well-appointed and clean, with a beautiful view from the window. I found Goldilock's bed in my room, but there was nothing "just right" about the luxurious bath. The large tub and copious amounts of hot water encouraged self-indulgence.
The hallways and public rooms are partially open to the outside, allowing fresh air to the inside and unobstructed views to the outside. The central courtyard is open to the sky. Series of arched openings in the walls allow convenient access between the dining rooms, conference rooms, and halls to the hotel rooms.
Breakfast consists of a vast array of foods - pastries, fruits, eggs, meats, cold and hot drinks - indeed, more than I can remember. Service was generally excellent and friendly, although our group was large and occasionally overwhelmed hotel staff. This led us to a more leisurely approach to breakfast and lunch that is normal for North Americans, a positive change for most of us.
The Marriott has earned its excellent reputation. Should the opportunity to visit arise, do it!
