The hotel advertises that there are eating establishments within walking distance nearby. I arrived with no car and was given a map. The map was not correct; two places were closed (one for good it appeared) and the third was a 90 decibel sports bar with terrible bar food only. Other places are open only for breakfast and lunch.

643Keith, Our team was very surprised and disappointed to hear that you had a negative experience with our neighborhood. To mention, we are located adjacent to the FSU campus, surrounded by luxury student housing, and in the middle of Tallahassee’s Arts and Entertainment district. With over 50,000 college students living and commuting daily to our neighborhood most find our area... More

Stayed here for business. Enjoyed nearby restaurants that you can walk too. Also, close to campus, which makes for a nice walk/jog away from traffic. Room was very spacious and clean. Lobby area was nice and spacious, as well. Complimentary breakfast and comfy beds! I would stay here again!

Stayed at this hotel for our son's graduation, the worst hotel ever. Very noisy, blowing whistle train passes literally under your window,toilet paper roll is left over from previous guests, unprofessional and inexperienced front desk staff.

We love having a bedroom and a living room. The King bed was very comfortable. The shampoo and other amenities are Giovanni brand and smell wonderful. The room was well-kept and clean. The whole property seemed well-maintained. The breakfast buffet includes eggs, meat, biscuits, yogurt, fruit, grits, oatmeal, and a waffle maker. The serving area is kind of cramped. I... More

We stayed here for three nights while visiting Tallahassee and it was awesome. The whole hotel is modern and new. The rooms are really nice and clean. This was one of the best Residence Inns that I have ever stayed in. We will definitely stay here again.

We often stay at this Marriott when visiting our daughter at FSU. The hotel is always well maintained, the staff greets us like old friends, and we are always minutes away from events on campus. This will always be our go to hotel when in Tallahassee!
