We stayed New Years Eve and took advantage of one of the packages offered. Rooms on the concierge floor were very tight. Air conditioning unit was an old fashioned outside wall unit and it was very difficult to reach the wall unit due to a chair between the unit and the bed. Room was very tight and bathroom was very tight as well. Compared to other Marriott's, rooms were very small and tight and the old heating air conditioning unit on the outside is clunky and should be controlled by the more modern thermostat. Hotel is very old looking on the outside and is right on the University of Dayton campus. About a 3 long blocks walk to restaurants right in the heart of the campus. Hotel overlooks parks and is right on the Miami river about a mile or so from downtown Dayton. Excercise room was huge and very well stocked with cold towels, numerous types of equipment and even had a fruit bowl. Even though the excercise room was awesome, the pool, being winter, was very small and a 4 person whirlpool was old. I like to swim laps, not in this pool and no other options like local health clubs was offered to me. Service in the restaurant, front desk, van drivers and excercise room was very good. Lobby had TV's with tables, but on New Year's Day a significant leak was occurring in the lobby and it wasn't even raining! a steady stream of water was coming through the roof in the middle of the lobby and a trash dumpster was placed underneath to capture the leak. Breakfast buffet was traditional around $15 per person with tax without tip appeared a bit high for just the traditional omelletes, bacon and sausage. It did not have any baked goods other than waffles and biscuits and had 5 or so types of fresh fruits. Nothing really special compared to other Marriott's who have many locally baked breakfast items. The restaurant view overlooked the University's excavation projects. Overall, average hotel with tight rooms. Be wary, if you paid for a concierge room during the last few weeks of the December, the room was closed most of the time and you really don't receive anything special for the extra money. Hotel was quiet, even though quite a number of families and couples were there.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Concierge floor were very quiet, but very small. It would be very difficult to fit 4 i...

Pros: The front desk staff was very helpful and cheerful, although I needed little from them during my stay it is always nice to receive a warm, personal welcome. The location is also convenient to downtown. The rooms are generally clean and have updated furnishings
Cons: The bed was pretty horrible; overly firm without being supportive - I woke up feeling like I had been in a car wreck, I was so sore. This was a surprise, as I usually like the beds in Marriott hotels. The room HVAC is also extremely loud, even when on the "low" setting. While some white noise is usually a good thing in hotels, this was bothersome. Finally, there was no buffet available at breakfast, and the service was very slow. Overall, not a good value for the $150/night rate. I will stay elsewhere the next time I am in town.

Stayed at this hotel for one night. Attended a symphony concert in town. The hotel was very convenient to the concert hall. It was sufficiently appointed and very clean. The breakfast buffet had a wonderful variety for all tastes. The restaurant food was very good and the staff was friendly and helpful. Convenient to the interstate highway.

We booked this hotel because we knew it was in walking distance to the Big Beers & Barley Wines Festival. The hotel is a bit dated and the rooms a bit small, but overall it was a nice place to stay for a decent price. The breakfast that was included in the cost of the room was AWESOME and all the staff we dealt with were courteous and attentive. The hotel is also in walking distance to several nice restaurants and pubs, making it an ideal location if you are visiting the college. Very clean, comfortable beds. We will book again when we are in the Dayton area.

First, the pro's:
- In close proximity to several points within Dayton and now on the edge of the campus of UD;
- Well-appointed interior finishes and clean rooms;
- Connected rooms available;
- Connected indoor/outdoor pools;
- Full service restaurant/bar on-site.

The con's:
- Overpriced hotel for services offered;
- Free WiFi in the lobby, WiFi in the room is $12+ a day;
- Overpriced on-site restaurant/bar with pitiful service;
- Continental breakfast not included;
- Pool not well-kept (cloudy, little chlorine);
- Hosts several large conference and group gatherings so a bus or motorcarriage is typically blocking the main entrance with their boarding party.

The Marriott Dayton was a decent hotel, albeit it overpriced for lack of amenities offered (WiFi, breakfast, etc).

This Marriott was the "classic" Marriott. A bit dated, but clean.
Lots of activities: car show, pool band, bars.
Room was comfortable and clean.
We were happy that we chose this Marriott over the Courtyard for AleFest weekend - walking distance to event.
