Stopped at this Marriott on the way to the NC shore. The staff were all welcoming and helpful.
The rooms were fine, no complaints. The lobby is spacious, with a bar/lounge, very nice seating areas with televisions and a small restaurant.
The concierge level was excellent. All of the expected amenities paired with good service. The hostess was perfect and the food was tasty and plentiful.
This Marriott is located next to an impressive shopping complex, just a pleasant walk out the back door and around the lake. There are large retail stores, smaller boutiques, restaurants and a large cineplex. The walk around the lake in the evening and along shopping complex's outer bank is great.
There are three Marriott brands within a block of each other here. I believe the other two are a Residence Inn and a Courtyard. They had slightly cheaper rates, but no concierge level. One of them is also located directly on the lake, directly in the shopping complex. The other is off of the lake, two blocks away.
