Marriott took over this property during the last year, according to the very friendly desk clerk. The rooms were clean and the lobby was very nice. We were traveling with one non-family member, and the layout of the room was perfect to give all of us enough privacy. The breakfast included eggs, biscuits and sausage gravy, etc., which is much more filling than the typical hotel breakfast. The surrounding area looked a little rough, but we had no problems and the desk clerk assured us walking a couple of blocks to Shamrocks for a late dinner, would be perfectly safe. I also recommend Shamrocks - great Irish pub. We had no problems, but the gas station next door had some slightly unsavory looking characters loitering around, so I would use caution when walking in the area after dark. I would still recommend this hotel, however!
