I was going into the trip ready for a standard Marriott experience you normally get at an older worn Marriott. It definitely had its older feel but is under renovation and when done will be an awesome hotel. If your high maintenance don't stay here as renovations are extensive. But the staff all around and breakfast experience was as good... More

Room I got was newly remodeled and very spacious. But because they are remodeling there were some issues. One there was a great place for me to work but the area had no chair. I called the front desk and after the second call the chair was brought up to me. The TV remote was old and didn't work very... More

I booked a balcony room at this hotel and on check-in was give a ground level floor right on the lobby driveway. They would not provide another room even though some were available.

Customer service is excellent at this property but am disappointed there is no Executive Lounge for rewards members. Renovations have gone almost a year beyond schedule and some of the work is rushed. I already had bubbles in the flooring in 2 or 3 of my rooms. One downside to the new rooms is the vinyl flooring adds to the... More

Nice hotel conveniently located off the freeway and <10 mins from downtown Solvagn. In the middle of a total renovation, we luckily stayed in one of the new rooms. Very modern, chic, comfortable beds, convenient outlets for your phone /laptop (wifi wasnt free though) & a balcony overlooking the valley.

I travel 100 plus days a year and the new room here is excellent. I like the appearance and the utility. The non carpet floor is nice since it can stay more dust free than carpet. The bed is very comfortable and there are dozens of electrical outlets and USB ports to charge all my devices. The very large TV... More
