I have stayed at quite a few Marriotts in my time, mainly for business, and I generally like the chain. I was told that this particular hotel is in some ways a flagship, since it is located at Marriott's headquarters complex. It is a fairly typical cookie cutter Marriott, but the rooms are extra spacious, consisting of a good size living room, with a small wet bar, which is separated from the bedroom by French doors.My room did not have a mini-fridge mentioned in other review. The room was clean and everything worked. Somehow, however, it looked tired. Maybe it was the color scheme - yellows and beiges with red here and there. It seemed to lack the crisp fresh atmosphere characteristic of modern hotel rooms. The bed was, as usual for Marriott, very comfortable. There was only wired internet, curious for a business hotel these days. The same rather tired feeling applied to the rest of the hotel. There was nothing really specific, just a general feeling that it needed a breath of fresh air. This was not true of the staff, who were all very friendly, helpful and energetic. The food was average and lacked some of the visual appeal that I have seen at other hotels in this chain. I would go back, but it would be nice to see the owners bring this particular hotel up to the standard of the best in their chain.
