I've been here a couple times now. The staff is so friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The food is excellent and plentiful. The cleaning staff are very personable and do a great job keeping my room neat and clean.

We had a training at this facility in late August/early Sept., and it exceeded my expectations! The hotel is managed by Marriott and offers a ton of amenities. The hotel has a pool, hot tub, cabanas, billiards room, basketball courts, gym, movie room and walking trails. In addition, the hotel has a bar, full cafeteria and several conference rooms. The...

Great service, great service and great serve. If you are having a convention, have it here. They managed and cared for our large group and did it the best. The Group sales were super staffers and did much more the required. Major Dan

Everything you need is right there. Really close to Oklahoma City and an easy/quick drive to plenty of attractions. We enjoyed our stay! I would recommend the conference center for anyone. It's quiet and clean with a friendly staff.

So full disclosure I had to stay here for work because of a conference that was being held there, otherwise I would have gone elsewhere. First thing that you notices that this building is owned by the United Postal Service. That's a little weird in my book. The staff is manned by Marriott staff, with a weird mix of conference...

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 The gym is ok but most of the equipment is old and outdated.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
