My wife and I stayed there on August 9th for one night. Arrived at about 4pm, went to a family birthday party, returned at 2am, slept, showered, and left.
We had a single king bed room and opted out of having breakfast included in our rate, already having plans for breakfast elsewhere. We did not have any experience with the restaurant, but would have if we had the time.
There was no wait on check-in, the one person on the staff that we dealt with was very polite and helpful. No problem finding a parking space at 4pm or at 2am. We used a room-key secured side door after finding that there was one close to our room, much closer than the front desk area. The room had everything we needed: coffee maker, mini-fridge, etc. No smell from the cranked-up A/C or anything else. Never heard any noise over the A/C and TV from outside (the courtyard) or the connecting room door or the hallway either for that matter. Other than a few spots on the wallpaper likely damaged by previous guests, the room was perfectly clean, nothing to even nitpick about. [We manage an apartment building and notice _everything_]
Lots of plugs for chargers and what not on the desk.
Tried an HDMI cable in the TV for Netflix/Hulu/whatever via my smart phone, no go - I use it successfully at just about every hotel I stay at.
The TV is straight-on from the couch, but perpendicular to the bed, so the wardrobe blocks it a bit, but not a big deal.
The shower head was a bit low for me, I had to duck, but that goes for 95% of the hotels in the world - I'm 6'3".
With this site and the many others that are available, we actually found the best rate by booking directly with marriott.com with the AAA discount.
