We live 5 minutes away from Rio. My husband received free hotel stay from Marriott, but we didn't have a chance to go anywhere far, so we decided to take a mini vacation right in our back yard at Rio. I really enjoyed the stay, even though I live and work right next to Rio, I still enjoyed walking around the lake, attend free summer concerts and going to the restaurants for some good food and drinks.
We used the fitness center which was very nice and clean, only one other person was there. There is a small TV in front of each treadmill and elliptical. They also have headphones that you can use.
The room was very nice and clean, we didn't have any problems at all. It's a standard Marriott room.
We had the breakfast buffet, it was pretty good. Again, standard Marriott breakfast items.
Overall we really enjoyed the mini vacation, and will do it again.
