I spent 4 nights at the NCED in Norman last week while attending training. While it is off the beaten path a bit, I found the facility and the food choices to be just fine. The rooms are on the small side, but mine was clean and comfortable, including the full size bed. As a Marriott elite member, one of... More

I'm staying here for work, and I didn't have a choice to stay anywhere else. The rooms and bathrooms are disgustingly small. I would never pay the going rate to stay here. The only positive is the pool. The gym is ok but most of the equipment is old and outdated. The cafeteria is gross, reminds me of a lunch... More

While the room I was assigned was a bit too small, and the bathroom was very small, the hotel does a great job at providing accommodations for those who need a place to stay and relax after attending training. Primarily, the national training center for the USPS, the hotel also hosts several other government and non-government groups and agencies. The... More

Nice hotel with great facilities i.e. Full size gym, weight room, swimming pool, tennis courts, and walking/jogging trails. Several eating options in the hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because there was no refrigerator or microwave in the rooms. Other than that it's a great place

Although the hotel has nice amenities it's outdated and the rooms are small. The bathroom is barely large enough for a tiny person and the sink has no counter space. The air conditioning barely worked in my room and the power went out at 7pm and didn't come back on until 0430. Needless to say it was unbearable. No explanation... More

Facility is very nice. Good great. Everything was clean and nice. No microwave or fridge in the room. Marriott style and service is evident. Classrooms are good. Location is about 30-40 minutes to the airport. A shuttle is available for a fee. Not much else in the area.

We stayed here along with several other families during high school baseball playoffs. There was a fantastic gym, full size basketball court, darts, pool tables, and pool. The rooms are small, very convention center like, but they were fine for us. There is a cafeteria style food service, which wasn't great for dinner, but perfect for breakfast. It was a... More

Incredible facilities offered to hotel guest including bicycle and guitar rentals, a huge saltwater pool, nice gym, large indoor basketball courts with children's gym toys like jumping balls and scooters.

If you are hosting a conference this place would be awesome. Big on site restaurant with excellent selection in the menu changes every day. The rooms are small but adequate and furnished in typical Marriott style. There is a very large fitness center, a huge pool, outdoor track, a pretty cool bar and enough to keep most people busy.

I stayed for personal travel. The facilities are awesome! Had I known there was so much to do there, I would have planned accordingly. The breakfast was awesome, the pool is a nice atmosphere and there is so much more to do here than meets the eye! Plan accordingly. I never could connect to the Wf-fi...
