I attended a Conference the past few days and stayed at this Marriott. I've been a big Marriott fan for years and this one was a great disappointment.
A few things:
1) Wifi is only free in the lobby and it is so slow, you are better off going into the attached Starbucks and use their service. The room charge for Wifi is almost $20 a day.
2) Valet Parking is $48.00 a day, but their are public garages across the street for half the price.
3) Marriott is usually known for their soft beds, this hotel recently changed their mattresses. My mattress was so hard that I had to take 2 Tylenol to sleep through the night. The next day housekeeping placed additional mattress pads on the bed. It helped but it still did not provide the comfort I associate with a Marriott.
4) We paid $28 for two glasses of White Zinfandel, their is a Liquor store across the street:)
The past thing about this Marriott is its location.
