“MY FIRST PICK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2010

My first night there was excellent. I was greated by the Manager who treated me like no other. I felt this here, you treated with the same respect. The rooms were clean, service and amenities were great. I wouldnt go anywhere else. Everytime I come to town, this will be my first pick. My collegues and I are happy to give our business to those who deserve it. Thanks Marriot!

What a lovely hotel! The bedding was super comfortable, the rooms were spacious, the service was great...and I can't stop there. It had, by far, the best workout facility I've ever set foot in (it had chilled wet towels, dry towels, a fancy water cooler, free weights, weight machines, exercise mats, treadmills, ellipticals, and bikes all with built in TV's, PLUS apples!

The close proximity to the highway and 40 minute drive to the Fresno airport made it ideal for business travel.

Finally, the hotel bar, serves bubblegum vodka. This sealed the deal for me, as one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at for business.

Spent two nights using Marriott Rewards points. I spent all day in Sequoia National park, so the hotel was pretty much just a place to sleep, the closest place I could get with points. The hotel was great - the room was clean, the bed comfortable. The shower was clean and roomy, the shower had good pressure and a high enough shower head. TV was an HD Flat Panel with a decent selection of channels.

One quibble - unlike some places, there was no free printing in the business center - but there is a sign telling you to come to the desk if you need to print a file.

Other points:
*The staff was extremely courteous and friendly - as nice as any place I have ever been.
*There was ample free parking,
* The area is a bit dead on a weekend night, but there are several restaurants (and a Starbucks) a couple of blocks north, in an "Old Town" type area.
*There is also a little shop in the hotel itself for snacks and drinks.
* It is a bit far from the park,. Three Rivers is more convenient, but it is a very good hotel.

Nice hotel with a nice staff. Our room was clean and the pool was okay. There were a lot of trees which seem to attract bees near the pool. The breakfast in the hotel was good. It filled us up. We got a deal which included breakfast for 2 adults and kids under 12. That saved us money. It was quiet in the hotel and didn't hear much noise in the hallway.

We stayed for one night at the "Marriott Visalia" in June 2009.

Location:
The hotel is located directly in Visalia. We chose it because we liked to have a good & comfortable hotel near the Sequoia National Park. This absolutely hit our expectations.

Room:
We had a room on an upper floor. It was clean and the interior was nice. As the place was really very crowded at the time we where there, due to a large meeting in the annexed conference centre with obviously most of the participants staying and dining at the hotel, we decided to leave one day earlier, which worked absolute perfectly (they did not charge us for this last night, we had the most flexible booking rate). The staff was friendly and helpful: we had some questions about the air-conditioning system and the technician responsible for it was at no time point getting tired answering all our questions.

What can I say? It’s a Marriott. The rooms were clean and comfy, and the bed is the best. The staff, from front desk to bartender to doorman, was friendly and helpful. I asked for a high floor, and they gave us a high floor. The nice clean pool area (with hot tub) was exactly what we needed after a hot day. The location is ideal- right off of 198 and 63, within walking distance of Main Street restaurants, behind the Convention Center. I think the hotel was redone in 2006 and the rooms mostly show it, although the ceiling was still popcorn and the bathroom floor was starting to look a bit beat up. My only other criticism is that their wi-fi really didn’t want to work with my iPod Touch; it went into an infinite loop asking me to accept Terms and Conditions. We did get it to work with our laptop.

If like us you’re planning to use this hotel as a base to explore Sequoia National Park: it’s about 45 minutes to reach the entrance to Sequoia National Park, and an hour and fifty minutes to reach Moro rock (which includes an extra 10 minutes for construction delays in the park).

We stayed here for a big family wedding and our two small well-behaved poodles were most welcomed by the staff. $75 deposit for the dogs was very reasonable. The room was clean, staff friendly, breakfast was excellent (variety, fresh fruit, plentiful), pool clean and comfortable, beds comfortable. Our whole family had an excellent experience here. We checked in at the last minute due a disappointing reservation at a local B&B and they accommodated us readily and we would certainly return. Shaded parking. Walking distance to downtown and all shops and eateries. Backs on to the convention center.
