This hotel has so many favorable mentions for the staff that you start to feel that some of them might be fake...until you go. The rooms are clean and a good size, but the decor is quite dated (that peach-colored, faux-sponge painted wallpaper is obnoxious!). I would go back in a heartbeat though because the staff were quite simply the... More

I stayed at the Marriott University Park May 12-15, 2013 for an Academic Advising Conference and I was impressed from the minute I arrived.

When we arrived that November evening, quite a shock we had, because the Democratic convention had taken over the hotel. Here we were tired and no way to relax. Until about midnight, when the convention was over, then the hotel was back to business as usual. The management went above and beyond to make it up to us. They were... More
