“Our Sequoia Nat'l Park Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Our Sequoia trip was a last minute getaway in the days leading up to 4th of July holiday. Due to the holiday, the park was fully booked which led us to a couple nights at the Visalia Marriott. It’s a modest hotel with a great location. Situated near the freeway and in center of Visalia, we were able to walk to numerous restaurants after a full day at Sequoia National Park. Our room was spacious, clean, and with comfortable furnishings. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful including Gloria. Chatting with us every morning at the Zhuo restaurant, she gave us invaluable Sequoia tips and extremely patient with our restless kids.

We stayed overnight here on our way up to Lake Tahoe. The location of this hotel seems to be in a very advantageous place for visiting and/or doing business in Visalia. For us it worked out well, as we were able to get back on the road quickly and head up through the Sequoia National Forest. The room was very clean, comfortable, and quiet, although it would have been nice to have a double sink in the bathroom. We also had dinner that night in the Lobby Restaurant, and we were very satisfied with that as well.

We arrived late at night after a long drive. The City oif Visalia should be called the City of One-Way Streets. We could see the red neon Marriott sign but couldn't get there! We fianlly arrived and the staff was so welcoming and helpful that our frustrations started melting away. Then we found out dinner was served in the bar! Food and Drink! And, a dellightful server whose name we did not get, but she made us a cvery happy couple.

Pet friendly hotel, very clean. Beds are VERY comfy, for a good nights rest. The staff were absolutely some of the most friendly and helpful I have had the pleasure to meet. Breakfast was good, the omelet chef makes a great omelet! We didn't use the pool or spa, but they looked nice. Hotel is right next to the Convention Center.

I have stayed here several times, while in the area. Fair price for a top hotel. Friendly staff, close to excellent restaurants within walking distance. Nice pool, great concierge lounge, free parking. What else do you need for business?

We stayed here for one night while attending a wedding in Lenmoore. It was a nice, clean hotel. The staff was friendly when we checked in. The gym was pretty nice compared to other hotels. We were happy there were three treadmills. The gym could have been a little cooler. We had a room with one king. The bed was comfortable. I like that there is a vaniety area outside of the bathroom/shower area. The room was big too.

My only complaint: Some of the drinks are over priced in the bar. $9.50 for a jack and coke?

The Mariott Conference Center is attached to this hotel in old downtown Visalia and keeps the hotel and staff vibrant. I have stayed here a number of times and have had a consistently good experience. The staff is friendly (I love the doorman!) and informed, the rooms are clean and comfortable, everything works. There is a restaurant where breakfast and lunch are served and dinner can be had in the bar area; the food is delicious. There is a concierge lounge on the 8th (top) floor. If that is available to you, a hot buffet breakfast is provided in the morning and a light dinner at night. Adult beverage mixins are available, too, on the honor system.

The gym is spacious for a hotel and has an adequate supply of equipment; there is an outdoor pool and spa.

The hotel is just off the local freeway and walking distance to the old downtown area which is a must-go. The restaurants I've tried are all great! The other businesses mostly close about 5PM, except on Farmer's Market night - Thursday. A theater is also within walking distance.

The Marriot is the best place to stay in Visalia!

Room Tip: Mountain views are on the back side of the hotel. On the upper floors you look out over beautiful t...
