The Marriott brands vary so much in my experience. From the Ritz Carlton's to the Courtyards there is so much variety. This was my first time at a Marriott Marquis property and frankly, it should not have the Marriott name before it as it is more worthy of a Ritz Carlton.
Gorgeous hotel with spacious and modern rooms that are not just your average "Marriott room". Bathrooms fabulous. Service outstanding. Location excellent. Staff goes out of their way to please.
Great value for the dollar.
We arrived at the hotel at 1045pm after a flight from the West Coast. Unfortunately, we had not eaten dinner. By the time we made it up to the restaurant it was exactly 1100pm which is what time the restaurant at the Marquis closes. They were kind enough to stay open and promptly serve us a really nice dinner for a hotel coffee shop. Kudos for going the extra mile.
