I stayed at the Marriott Hanover for approx 8 nights. They are renovating the lobby which probably needed it judging by the rooms. The rooms are old and there is no dresser for clothes which makes it slightly inconvenient for longer stays. By now I would anticipate most hotels to have flat screen televisions or at least something better than a late 80's model TV. The hotel does provide great smelling orange ginger soap, shampoo and condition from Bath & Body Works but the perks end there.
Wireless internet costs $12.95 per day which I was willing to pay out of necessity. However, the wireless internet stopped working a few days into my stay and took nearly two days to repair. There seemed to be no sense of urgency when I called the front desk in terms of when it would be repaired. I was offered to use the business center which I will get into next.
The business center is oddly located in a dark, creepy back corridor on the second floor. It is poorly lit and frankly not a place many women would feel comfortable alone. This was quite an issue when the internet was not working.
On a positive note there is a gym that is decent. There are 3 or more treadmills, a few ellipticals, two stationary bikes and some weightlifting equipment. The pool was alright but the locker rooms were musty, super old and like the business center, creepy.
The best part of the stay was the Irish Pub located on the first floor. The food was really good and especially good for a hotel restaurant. The room service was also excellent and the room service staff were extremely friendly.
Overall it is just an average hotel. I would probably give it another try because there was a lot of commotion with the renovations. I really do hope they renovate the business center and make it a more welcoming place though!
