“Not the best Marriott I've stayed at but very good and in a great location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I stayed on 19th floor and had access to Concierge lounge. It's not the best Marriott I've stayed at but nice. Concierge lounge could have better snacks but staff was very nice. Unstaffed in Lounge for breakfast but staff was friendly. Room was small but great views. Great location within walking distance to restaurants and bars.

Room & check-in experience good.

Stayed on concierge level. Breakfast experience in concierge lounge not great. Coffee kept running out, attendant was rude and filled up bacon ontaine with his bare hands (not washed). Told the front desk on checkout.

We were treated like royalty at this hotel and are already planning on another weekend stay. The spa was top-notch, we are hooked on hot stone massages!! The champagne and the unexpected addition of chocolate covered strawberries were the best! The concierge lounge was a nice place to hang out, we had a great conversation with the attendant. The pool & jacuzzi were well maintained, clean, stocked full of towels and was just a nice place to be. I've never been disappointed in Marriott properties, and this one is top notch! Special thanks to Hal (front desk), Colin (bellman), and the lovely attendant at the concierge!

Room Tip: The higher floors offer a great view of the surrounding city!

Stayed at hotel to attend nearby college function. Warmly greeted upon arrival by Bell Staff, answered various questions on parking and directions. Check-in was smooth with immediate room assignment and free "Whoopie Pies" offered at desk. Complimentary hot chocolate available in lobby on check-in day. Room was immaculate, in particular the bathroom. Hallways and common areas were clean. Used 'Self-Park' in garage around the corner. Easy access to hotel from 2nd floor of garage. Check-out was easy using TV service in room.

- Parking
If not included in rate, you must pre-pay using kiosks located in garage before
going to exit gate. Use same ticket for stay once validated @ front desk.

- Breakfast
Hotel only offerred Buffet Breakfast on Sunday of stay. Waitstaff stated kitchen
could only keep up with serving buffet and not individual meals. This was not
posted and only told to us when we were seated. Other morning full menu and
buffet was available.

- Lounge/Bar
Paid $40.00 USD for four (4) glasses of domestic wine.

- Hotel Location and Traffic Patterns
Hotel sits on Penn Square and streets leading to it are one way. Extra time is
needed to go around blocks to return to location. Driveway in front of hotel can
accommodate 6 - 8 vehicles. Use caution when entering/exiting driveway due to
pedestrian traffic.

Overall we had a great experience with only minor issues that you may want to remember when staying at this property.

Room Tip: High rooms have good views of downtown and surrounding area.

we stayed at this hotel for a cheerleading event and everything was great from check in to check out, the rooms were nicely done and they were very clean, the hallways were clean no funky smells in the bathroom the pool was small but nice a little cold for my taste but the kids didn't mind. my only complaint is the elevator service, it would take 20min to wait for an elevator and sometimes that was full you would have to use the steps but when your on the 11th floor thats not going to be fun. also the two elevators were on the small side for such a large hotel, i'm not sure if it was bc they they were hosting an event or what the issue was but this was a big problem I was late to a meeting because I couldnt get from one floor to another do to the elevator situation.
