We stayed here immediately after the hotel underwent extensive renovations and were very impressed.
The decor of the rooms was very updated and modern but still felt comfortable and were extremely well-appointed. The adjacent hotel (Marriott) had several restaurants as well as a Starbucks while the Courtyard has a bar/restaurant that was quite tasty. (I highly recommend the club sandwich!) The bar was trendy and the waitstaff were friendly and efficient.
The lobby has a "Smart Board" as seen in recent Marriott commercials which was handy to check the weather or sports scores as we were coming and going. The pool opened just a few hours before we checked it out and it was nice. A tad on the small side (is shared by the Courtyard and the adjacent Marriott) and the jacuzzi looked a bit dingy, but the new landscaping and patio area were extremely well-done and inviting.
We also liked the shuttle from the airport and the shuttle to the cruise terminals that were complimenary. The front desk was very courteous and helpful in arranging transportation.
We used the fitness facility which was absolutely top-notch; each bike, treadmill, and cross-trainer had their own personal TV's that you could plug your headphones into which made working out much more enjoyable. There was also fresh fruit, water, and towels available.
As we were heading out from our stay, we ran into J.W. Marriott along with several of his management team who were quite interested in our thoughts on the hotel, which was a nice surprise!
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, without hesitation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
