As a Marriott platinum elite member, I have stayed at many Marriott properties and this one has room for improvement. Would not choose to return here because of location near highway (traffic noise) and the need for updates. The overall decor seemed heavy, dark and outdated, especially the bathroom. The lighting in the tub/shower was dim, closet door kept going off the track when trying to open the door and there was no luggage rack. But room was reasonably clean and adequate for a 2 night stay.
I was not satisfied with the room location. Our room was on I-95 side and the noise was audible and annoying. Opening the window for outdoor air is not an option because of the noise. But the A/C keeps the room temp comfortable. The pillows need replacing; very lumpy and uncomfortable.
The breakfast was adequate with good choices to start the day. Light dinner was standard stuff, reminded me of school cafeteria food, nothing remarkable but it is free. Perhaps some cookies for dessert would be nice....Free parking is a plus. The staff are friendly and helpful!
