This was a girls weekend downtown but the property would also have been the perfect property for a romantic couples weekend.
It appears most of the renovations have been completed.
Our room was fabulous (8th floor)
The hotel was walking distance for us to all of the favorites (Water Tower Place, Carriage Rides, ghirardelli, American Girl)
Service was excellent with so many helping hands from the bell stand to the room.
I would give the Concierge lounge a 3 out of 5 stars though. The eggs were dry (I assumed all Marriott properties used the sour cream trick to keep them moist) but they were the dry instant-ish variety akin to a Country Inn and Suites. Evening fare equally as disappointing.
