We stayed here one night while visiting friends who work at MSU. It is in a great location for access to campus. Walking is easy throughout the area. The room was a King, with a view of a parking garage. The room was cool, quiet, comfortable. Good hot shower and plenty of towels. Underground parking was free and easy to... More

This was my second stay at the E.L. Marriott over the last nine months, and I encountered similar problems on both visits plus some new ones on the latest stay. There is an ongoing problem, at least on the higher floor where I stayed, with water pressure and temperature in the shower. Both times, soap was doled out sparingly; I... More

I booked this hotel for a campus visit to MSU with my son. The location is perfect - walking distance to campus and gives a nice idea of off campus activity. The hotel is nice and the rooms well appointed, but I had several instances that left me feeling frustrated and cheated. When I checked in the front desk representative... More

We stayed here for a weekend visit to a show at the Wharton Center, and the location to the campus and downtown was optimal. The young woman, Kennedy, who checked us in was pleasant and welcoming. Our room was clean and furnished very nicely. We had the breakfast buffet one morning in the dining room and the food was delicious... More

I booked this hotel because it is located in downtown East Lansing and therefore quite walkable from MSU and several businesses nearby (restaurants, stores). If you are taking the Michigan Flyer shuttle from DTW, the East Lansing stop is at this hotel. Check-in and check-out were very easy. Take note: I stayed here in June when MSU is in its... More

This hotel has a world class front desk staff. Not only are they friendly but they know their stuff and go out of their way to help guests. I recently stayed and left some items. When I called the hotel I mentioned I would be back again in 10 days. The asst. manager offered to hold the items in his... More

Recently refurbished, this Marriott site is clean, fresh, comfortable, and well situated to all that downtown EL and the MSU campus has to offer. Staff are professional, knowledgable, and well trained in the hospitality industry. Rooms are quiet and well appointed. We were one of four wedding parties there, resulting in a sold out site. While each group crossed paths... More

This hotel has a great location if your are visiting MSU. The hotel is just a block off the MSU campus in an area with numerous restaurants and pubs. The hotel staff was wonderful.

After hearing business colleagues lament staying at this hotel, my expectations were low. After spending four nights here, I am EXTREMELY impressed. - When I checked in, a desk clerk two stations away learned my name (he was not the clerk checking me in) and made sure to call me by name every single time he saw me. After 35... More

I have been here for two nights now on business. I can honestly say that it's one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at. The rooms are clean, stylish, and comfortable, and the front desk staff, especially Andy, were very kind and friendly. The staff at the bar and restaurant were also attentive and great. I slept very well and... More
