We've been staying here since just after the hotel opened (on our first stay, Bill Marriott was in the lobby, we assume to check out the new hotel, but also to attend the ND-Utah football game.) While the physical hotel has most often been exceptional, not once has a front desk person smiled or greeted us by name. We always 'put up with it' because one can't beat the hotel location, especially on football weekends. But, much to our surprise, the front desk staff was beaming on our most recent stay. Granted, it was Commencement Weekend and the rates were almost $500 a night, so you would expect an air of friendliness, but I truly believe the smiles were sincere and part of the regular routine. I even received an email thanking us for our stay! It looks like there might be a new manager at the property, and I am ever so thankful for the change. Obviously someone is passing along the friendly gene, and now I can give the hotel the Excellent rating I've been holding off for so long.
