“weekend fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

WE loved the outside seating and fire pit,they did shut lights and fire pit off and bar closed early for some weekend guests, It was nice to see boaters going on the river .Bar and morning breakfast not complementary, and some what limited and priced kind of high but very good. STARBUCKS COFFEE bar was great but price was too, AN option of eating downtown was offered by many of the businesses close to the hotel offered a nice verity of choices ,Piggy"s was a fine place for Dinner or breakfast,and drinks ,it is just a few steps away from the hotel.The staff was helpful and nice,The Hotel was not real large,and nice decorated,very new look.The bed was very confartable and room clean and nice,restroom was a little small.The room we had was more a mini suit street side.Air conditioner worked real well and very quiet.The mini frig only stayed on 2 hours but Ice could be used for our cooler

Room Tip: the rooms on the river side are said to be much larger but more money ,our room was very nice ,cooli...

I had the pleasure to spend a night at this hotel - it was excellent!! The staff were very friendly, hotel was modern and in great condition, and our room was great. Very clean, and we were upgraded to a riverview room. I was very happy with pretty much everything! Only downside was the lineup for the Bistro (Starbucks) in the lobby - only one barista was working at the time.

This hotel is located right on the river in downtown La Crosse. We enjoyed dinner at the next door Piggy's restaurant and took a relaxing stroll along the riverside walk to the adjacent park with its fountains, flowers and statuary. Our check-in was efficient and friendly. Our (upgraded) room was spacious, with a view over the river. The pool is smallish and located in a space that also has river views. It was rather cold when we used it early in the morning. I don't like the Courtyard/Starbucks bar/serveries, but this one was well run, with relaxed bar service and efficiency in the morning. The bar looks out onto the river, and there is an outside seating area on the river.

My wife and I stayed at this place based off reviews and the staff suggesting they are the "only" hotel on the water. The place is not on the water and you have to walk to the park about 75 Yards away to the right to get your water experience. This is a very busy waterfront with other hotels such as the Radisson also adjacent to the front. The location is ideal..you can walk to Qwik Trip as well as many food places. If you stay here you should use points, miles or make sure you get a good discounted rate. Even the AAA rate isn't much. There is no free breakfast. There is free parking and free internet. The staff is very helpful. Especially the grave yard shift gentlemen. He loves his jobs and is very knowledgeable of the area!

Room Tip: Get a room facing the water. The traffic on the entrance and the restaurant across the street may wa...

Nice Marriott on the river. I am from the La Crosse area but stayed here for pleasure with the family over the weekend. I've stayed in dozen's of Marriott's as an Elite member and this hotel is modern and clean, rooms are of avg size, and the bathrooms are smaller than expected. Front desk service is friendly and helpful and the kids loved the pool. The cafe is overpriced for below avg food but had a nice patio overlooking the Mississippi.

We only had two issues... We requested a cot for our 2 yr old. Upon opening it during bedtime, we found soiled sheets and someone's old clothes still in it. This gave me the creepy-crawlies so we called the front desk and they changed the linens. In addition, after further inspection of the room we found an old pacifier under the curtains. These two issues were not a deal-breaker but it made me feel the cleaning standards at this property are below standard and easily overlooked.

Usually the front desk offers some bonus points for inconveniences like this, but I was not offered any.

In LaCrosse for a 2-day business trip. I'm partial to Marriott properties and this one was very nice. Clean, well-kept and the staff was fantastic. This one was about 2 long blocks from the convention center where my meeting was. My room (3rd floor) was quiet and comfortable. Both the WiFi and Wired net services were very fast and reliable with very easy login and no dropped connections during large uploads/downloads.

The staff were exceptional: From the cleaning staff to the font desk for making recommendations for dinner, all were cheerful and helpful. Kudos to all!

My only "cons" associated with the hotel were (1) it was kind of pricey for a Courtyard (in excess of $200/night total) and (2) no free breakfast. Competing brands from other major hotel chains (not as close to the convention center though) are a bit less expensive and offered some freebies for business folks to get their day going, like some kind of food (even fruity would be satisfactory) and coffee. (C'mon, folks, even full-service Marriott properties in convention cities have lobby coffee available!)

Even with the minor "cons" I still highly recommend the property.

Room Tip: If you can, get a river-view one. Awesome view in the morning as the sun comes from behind you!

I enjoyed staying here. I have been here before and will stay here again.

The staff checked me in quickly and was very professional. My room was large and comfortable as you would expect from a Marriott. It was also very clean.

The room was reasonably priced especially during Memorial Day Weekend.
