“Full service, full experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Great Marriott property. Excellent customer service. Convenient walking location to downtown restaurants. As an Elite Marriott member, access to a terrific concierge lounge with full breakfast and full evening apps. On-site restaurant continually goes thru transitions: elegant or casual? Not always consistent. I've stayed here numerous times and it is one of my favorite Marriotts.

I had to go to the Visalia Convention Center for a conference. The Marriott is essentially attached to the convention center, makes for easy stops back in the room during breaks. Can't beat the location. The lobby is updated and contemporary with nice sitting areas for conversation. There's a bar and a full service restaurant (I didn't eat there so can't comment on the food). Sufficient outdoor parking in a well lit parking lot. The doorman was also very helpful. Check in was efficient and the rooms are all updated and very spacious. Even though I was by the elevator, it was very quiet. The hotel is located right at the edge of downtown, and it's a one block walk to Main Street for Starbucks and restaurants. I had my dog with me and it was very convenient to walk him around the hotel and surroundings. Even at night, it felt safe and the area was well lit. This is one of the nicer Marriott's I've stayed at, I was pleasantly surprised and would definitely come back again. Since it was at the edge of downtown, also makes for easy access to the freeways.

This hotel is attached to the Visalia Convention center which made it extremely easy to attend a conference held there. The rooms were comfortable and roomy and everything was well kept. They have a restaurant and lounge which were busy most evenings.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the second floor opening to the lobby below. This is noisy when you hav...

Good rooms; all kinds of services available. Neat downtown area within walking distance; shops, pubs and restaurants abounding. No fee parking; right next to the convention center. $10 a day for internet in room.

Stayed here twice for business, love this hotel. Great location right off the freeway, walking distance to fun bars, nice restaurants, and great shops. 2 blocks from Starbucks. Lots of free parking, easy access to the convention center. Front desk staff was consistently friendly, eager to help, and very efficient - I'd rank them higher than many other Marriotts. Our company hosted a function here and the catering was FANTASTIC - got rave reviews from all guests, but it's a different staff than in the restaurant, I believe. Hotel seemed a bit pricey for the area, but compared to the others I saw was well worth it.

Room Tip: Views of the mountains are gorgeous from the upper floors at the back of the hotel - try to request...

There are two types of visitors to Visalia; those who have family and friends here, and those whose car breaks down on the way to the Sequoias and they find themselves stuck in this middle of nowhere place. Either visitor would do well checking into this above average small town cookie cutter Marriott. The newly remodeled hotel is very comfortable and the beds are excellent. The guest rooms are average in size and well done all the way around. The hotel is located in the center of a depressing downtown area that is not walking friendly because of the homeless and meth addicts waiting for guests with cash to stroll outside the hotel. We were ambushed in the hotel parking lot as we got in our car. The staff of the hotel is friendly, professional and the food in the onsite restaurant was clean and straightforward. So, if your life leads to Visalia--try the Marriott. It is the top choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room facing the mountains.

The hotel is fine. Plenty of parking, friendly staff, nice rooms. But don't try to have dinner there. They have some kind of a "restaurant", but it's only open for breakfast and lunch. If you want dinner, they serve it in the bar. And my dinner was terrible. They have a Steak and Lobster special on Wednesdays. $25.00. Salad extra. And the salad was good - i recommend it. But the dinner was barely warm. I sent it back. I got a new dish, barely warm. So i refused it too and it was taken off my tab, with an offer for a desert. The Manager was obviously used to this. With a bad dinner, had no interest in desert. Dinner is certainly an afterthought here. If there is a chef, which I doubt, maybe he should try working at Carl's Jr. to expand his experience and resume.

Room Tip: Away from elevators and ice machines.
