“what a nice surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

This hotel is an all suites hotel. My room was HUGE! More closet room than I have at home. The lobby restaurant bar was excellent and the service equally as good. We got a great dinner recommendation from them too. I will be sure to come back and stay again.

Room Tip: The concierge level is on 16 so it is really busy up there. I would avoid that floor.

clean and spacious, but expensive, well run. if you have business on campus then this place is great. staff is friendly and helpful. i would recommend trying to use whatever discounts you have (aaa, entertainment, etc) if you have them.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Stayed here for one week in April and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. My room was huge, on the 12th floor and overlooked towsons campus providing great views. The room was great with a fully equipped kitchen albeit with no glassware which was odd. Rooms were cleaned daily. Special mention must go to Larry behind the bar for always making one feel welcome. The restaurant food was of a good standard with friendly, efficient staff. One tip would be to never leave your room key near a cell phone in your pocket as this can deactivate the key which creates a minor nuisance to get it reactivated. Would certainly stay here again when next in towson

Room Tip: Get one facing towson campus not away

When I stayed last time we had a gorgeous huge room with a balcony that overlooked the college. Requested that same room and did not get it :(. We got a room that was not renovated. There was no tv in one of the bedrooms and that room was very small and had a large red stain on the carpet. I know I sound like a snob and it was only one night but it was $177 and I was disappointed. Our balcony overlooked the dumpster. Hopefully all the rooms get renovated soon because the location is great. The only plus was the washer dryer in the room. Hope it's better next time!!

We are a family of three with an 18 year old. Room included a real kitchen, dining area, large living room, small spare room off the living room, large bedroom, beautiful bathroom and a balcony! You can cook or do take out and some rooms have a washer dryer also! Def an apartment - you can really spread out and be comfy.

Was clean, comfy beds and free parking underneath the hotel. A Starbucks is next store and not far from Towson Center with lovely shops and good restaurants.

We were very happy with our stay and would highly recommend!

Room Tip: If a King Bed is important - just check on that before you register. They have them - but you need...

We stayed here 2 nights for a wedding weekend. Couldn't believe our eyes when we saw our room..it was like a suite! A kitchen with a full fridge, microwave, washer/dryer (!), large living room and bathroom, and bedroom with queen sized bed. I would have given this 5 stars of the beds were comfier. Maybe it was just my body knowing I wasn't in my own bed, but I couldn't get comfortable on it. And the pillows were too flat. The room itself
Though was unexpectedly great for a two night stay. For the wedding it wasn't pricey, but I think it can be if not blocked for one.

Do not stay at this hotel if you value your PERSONAL SAFETY and PROPERTY! There is no place to park except a lot that is not secure. There was an Armed Robbery across the street recently, and the SECURITY MEASURES ARE INSUFFICIENT in light of this incident. (Check out the Baltimore Sun January 6, 2014, article.) Our van window was smashed at this hotel (three other cars were vandalized as well), and the Marriott employees were indifferent and claimed that they did not own the property and had no liability despite the captive parking situation and inadequate security. It is true; this is NOT a MARRIOTT PROPERTY, and the Marriott does not stand behind anything that happens here. We were told to talk to Towson University! We thought we made a reservation with Marriott, but you are not staying at a Marriott property. They also said there was a sign (you can only see after you are parked) that states they are not liable for any damages in the lot. Well, there is no other place to park, and that lot is designated as the “hotel lot.” The Marriott (or is it Towson?) should give an accurate description of their parking situation before you make your reservation. STAY AWAY for your own safety, especially if you have children. Despite dangerous armed criminal robbery and vandalism events, insufficient measures are put in place to protect customers and property. You are better off sleeping in your car or under a pile of leaves. It will be safer and more pleasant.
