This Marriott is a step above the regular Marriotts I've been to. The bar is huge, with several separate couches, friendly bartender. The lobby, as expected, was busy. The room we were in had a fantastic view of the harbor, especially from our 19th floor room. The hotel is located within walking distance to several restaurants and nice boutiques.
The downside: 1) walls are very thin. My friend even commented from outside the room that she could hear every word of my phone conversation. 2) getting from the parking garage to the hotel lobby was a bit of a maze.
