We have stayed here quite a few times, because our daughter goes to Augustana College, and for a Marriott category 5, this property clearly exceeds expectations. This hotel has a lot of character and has been nicely remodeled. The rooms are exceptionally clean and modern, and the ones we have stayed in are two room suites. The staff are all very friendly, and the building is very secure -- you have to use your room key to even access your floor on the elevator. Everything was very quiet. The rooms we stayed in have nice showers but no tubs, which is fine with us. The linens and bedding are the deluxe quality you would find in a category 6 or 7 JW Marriott (thick towels and a complimentary robe). The TV in the bathroom mirror was cool, and the room had two other flat screens.
This hotel also adds nice touches. They give you chocolates in the evening, and the rooms are stocked with cold drinks and snacks. As Marriott Rewards platinum customers they gave us complimentary breakfast at the Sunday jazz brunch, which had a fantastic selection of delicious foods like salmon, omelet station, champagne, etc. The jazz combo played great music.
The staff is also very helpful. Overall, this is a super nice hotel, if you don't mind spending the money or using the points. First class all the way.
