Just returned from one night stay at Marriott (2nd night was at The Westin JW). It's newly remodeled so the lobby and rooms are up to date. The room (8th/top floor) was spacious, in fact, bigger than expected. They invested in a comfy bed, good linens, and provided plenty of goosedown pillows unlike cheaper hotels which give you those flat, unusable excuses for pillows. Only complaint was that the wall along the hallway was paper thin so we could hear people talking as they went by but it wasn't unbearable. This Marriott seems to be the bachelorette and bachelor party haven for the area. Even in the 108 degrees, the hotel was crowded including the bar area once pre-dinner cocktail time came and thru the rest of the evening. The pools during the day are packed and getting a chaise lounge can be challenging but the staff worked their tails off bringing more chairs out for guests. Good luck with scoring an umbrella tho. The larger pool was filled to the brim (I kid you not) with the young, singles crowd most of whom may not have stopped partying from the night before. The smaller pool offered some reprieve for families, kids, older folks, and those of us who didn't want to wade thru an ocean of drunkeness to simply cool off. A visit to the Spa was lovely. They claim it's one of the best in the area..it's nice and may be one of those but I've been to better, more indulgent spas. Overall, our stay was good and we'd go back again.
