Ask for a renovated room! I was staying in a renovated room, while my friend was not, so I got to compare them both.
They have great beds and I got a good night's sleep. That is always the priority to me! Some of the hotel is a bit dated and unstylish, but if you are travelling on business and a good night's sleep is your priority, you will be happy. Towels and toiletries are nice too.
The hotel is on the Riverwalk, which can be convenient, but can be loud at night. If this is a concern, request a higher floor. The balconies are large and a nice touch.
The breakfast buffet and parking are ridiculously expensive. I pay less for both when I travel to New York City!
The fitness center has great weights and some nice machines, but half of the cardio machines were broken during my visit.
The best benefit of this hotel is they have a free washer and dryer for guest use! It's in the workout room, so you can babysit your laundry and workout at the same time. They sell laundry soap for only 50 cents. The pool stays open late, but is small and plain.
If I were travelling for leisure and had time to enjoy the hotel, I prefer the Marriott Plaza. This is fine for business though, if you are on someone else's dime!
