Hosted a business meeting here and stayed an extra days since we were already here. It's a couple of blocks outside the heart of the tourist zone, but it's right on the river and, at least for me, well worth the extra two or three minute walk.
A couple of little downsides: it's at the very end of the tourist district, so it will take a few extra minutes to get to the heart of downtown. Great walk on the river, but still an extra few minutes. They charge to park. And internet is not free. And they have foam in room coffee cups. Too expensive not to have a real coffee cup. But, all in all, that's not a very long list of dings.
But, it's what I want in a hotel. Room was clean, spacious, well done, and well serviced, with a great view of the river (most every room has a view). Lots of hot water with great water pressure. Great internet coverage... never lost a signal. Good AC which comes on and stays on (none of that motion detector turned it off waking up covered in sweat in the middle of the night junk here) And the best hotel bed I've slept on in years. Not sure why, but it was a GREAT bed. Much of the parking lot is in a covered garage. Staff was very friendly and quite helpful. It's actually a quite attractive hotel with lots of big, soaring public space.
Sure, the facade is not "historic", but neither are the beds and plumbing. I'll take ample hot water and big fluffy bed over historic facade any day of the week.
Business meeting went well too. They beat the price of several non-Marriott hotels. Everything was set up properly and they did a good job with it.
It's really worth the couple of blocks it takes to get into the middle of the tourist district to stay at a real Marriott.
