Had dinner and drinks at BLU and both were good. The staff was very helpful in recommending a good choice for dinner and the drinks were good.

Visited for the first time while visiting family in town. Best brunch I have ever had! So many choices. I especially enjoyed the omelette station and the handmade pasta with basil pesto. Service was impeccable.

A good location for Marriott dwellers, good depth in wine, excellent menu of eclectic mid country Italian. Enjoyable friendly service and not a rushed hotel location.

I absolutely love their Sunday brunch. From the bottomless mimosas to the large array of tasty foods, it is one of the best (if not the best) brunch spots in the city.
