I recently stayed at Marriott for a business meeting, I like to rate hotels by each section so here goes:)
Pool: Small, but adequate for the number of guests. Its clean and the towels are plentiful. They said they had service for drinks, but no one ever came around, so I did not spend money (that I would have gladly!). Pool water is warm, not really cold, but its July and I expected it to heat quickly in the sun.
Room: Room was nice, beds were comfortable and bed quality is one of the most important aspects of hotel rooms to me. Bathroom was small , not sure there is anything you can do about this, but it was sometimes a pain getting in and out of there. Coffee in room was delish!
Food: Food/drink in restaurants was better than most hotel food I have had at other locations, and service was always friendly and quick. The third floor "rooftop" lounge was relaxing with lots of open space for our group.
Shuttle: AWESOME! If you plan on staying here (because it is less expensive than staying 2 miles away in historic district), then know that the shuttle is always on time, always clean and always cool when its hot outside. The cost is $6 roundtrip per person and the pass is for all day, and they have a cooler of water for you on the way back...remember to tip the driver a few dollars if you ask him to drop you outside the route (which if time permitting they will). I saw numerous parties who asked for a favor without compensating...don't be cheap, its $2 tip.
