I was looking for a new hotel 2 stay at on wolf rd--called 3-4 times to see if the bar would be open sun and mon ( new yrs)--got a diff answer each time---the drinks in the lounge were outragesly priced--great staff--but bar was empty--to expensive---the food was dissapointing--small frozen burger--but not priced as such----no free wifi in room---no free breakfast--after partying all night--couldnt get in our room--had to sit in hall way for a 1/2 hr while they tried to fix the computer system that apparantly didnt recognize 2013----they did comp my room but as far as im concerned the damage was done---very poor excuse for a marriott---i suppose if your a company w/ deep pockets -staying there isnt an issue--but 4 the avg vacationer---forget it---u can do much much better on wolf road.

Room Tip: stay somewhere else!!!!

Attended a conference here with a few hundred other people - wish I had brought my lunch! The entree was chicken parm - dried out and tasteless. It was served on top of overcooked ziti, and the sauce tasted like a can of pureed tomatoes - no seasoning, no taste. The only thing that had taste was the cheese they smeared on top. Salad was a joke - a sliced "wedge" of lettuce with tiny bits of bacon and tomato off to the side. Dressing was blue cheese and no other choice - my friend and I hate blue cheese, so requested and got something else that was some sort of balsamic and decent. Dessert was a large slice of some sort of fudgy chocolate cake - you could tell it was premade and frozen - still wet. Dirty cup on the table as well. Another colleague got the vegetable pasta - more colorless pasta with a few bits of carrot run through it and smeared in some sort of alfredo imitation. The room was huge and freezing cold. The only good things I can say is that the bathrooms were clean and the wait staff were very pleasant.

The hotel is on Wolf Road not far from the airport and malls. Several good restaurants nearby.

I actually stayed here because the last minute rate was better than the courtyard across the street.

Marriott bedding is always good and worth staying. Check in experience was great. Room service breakfast was promised in "45 minutes or less." Kind of long. Although it arrived in about 30 and was well done and presented.

I don't know why the Marriott doesn't comp Internet like all their other brands (e.g Courtyard). During this stay the room rate was low so I stayed here but I usually avoid the regular marriotts because of having to pay for Internet.

this is a really convenient hotel near the airport, corporate woods, and wolf road. the rooms are large and comfortable, the work out room is nice. The only issue that if it is raining you will get walk walking in the covered parking lot--puddles and ceiling drips--and then getting into the hotel. lounge is nice place to relax

Made a reservation for this place then cancelled it when I found out they would make me pay $10 for wifi in the room. Ya this is a business center. Who cares. People want free wifi in their rooms. Don't be so cheap. Add in no free breakfast and this place was a bad choice. Instead Booked at the Holiday Inn Express. In a word it was fantastic. Cheaper than the Marriott AND free wifi and a huge complete breakfast. Holiday Inn sells themselves short because they call it a continental breakfast when in reality it has everything from eggs to pancakes, fruit, cereal.....everything.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while attending a conference. I found the rooms to be clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The hotel was near the airport and had an easily accessible shuttle. There was no unpleasant odor or noise which, for me, are important factors. Those are the pluses. The negatives were having to pay for the internet. In this day of wifi, this seems sort of chintzy.Also, those attending the conference (and I was one of the presenters) had no internet at all - some malfunction. Also, the air temperature in the public areas was either uncomfortably cold or too warm. Finally, the restaurant was very overpriced. When I travel, I really don't care to spend over $20 for an entree and $20 would have been on the low end of this. My meal with a tip was $35.00. The food was good but not excellent. There was no complimentary breakfast offered which added to my food costs. Overall, however, the cleanliness and comfort of the hotel made it worth the stay.

Room Tip: Get the king room. The room arrangement was very nice.

We recently attend a conference at the hotel, which was crowded of course but ht was to be expected. Long lines again expected due to the size of the crowd. The food served to the group was not expect or acceptable. Lunch was something that most of us moved around our plates hoping dinner would be better. Well it was worse, to the point we considered ordering out for pizza. Pasta was over cooked and dry, meatballs had no sauce and were like pebbles. When we entered the place tables were set with salads and deserts, no thought to if someone might have issue to what was there. I for one did as I walked to a table with pumpkin pie, I am highly allergic to spices in the pie. Seemed like they were rushing group, yet if asked for more sauce that took 15-20 minutes
