This was our first stay at the Marriott Medical Center. It is ideally situated on Fannin, with easy walking distance to all the hospitals in the TMC complex. As noted by other readers, there's a light rail station immediately in front of the hotel, so you can zip downtown or to the Reliant Center. And if you're here for visiting or treatment at any of the hospitals, this is an ideal spot. And if you like coffee, well, you've come to the right spot. There's a Starbucks in the lobby of the hotel. And there's a Starbucks in the next block, and for good measure, there's a Starbucks three blocks away. But you can't live on coffee alone. We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel restaurant. The breakfast was good. We ventured to the restaurant for dinner after an exhausting day of appointments and had some rather good crayfish bisque followed by a salmon dish. when the waiter asked how was the salmon, we said a little overcooked. The staff then asked to replace the item but we had eaten most of it, so we were complaining with a full stomach. The maître d insisted on offering us a complimentary dessert - vanilla ice cream, very good, and then discounted our bill. The salmon wasn't that overdone, but they were insistent and wanted to leave us with a good impression. They succeeded.
The hotel staff were very friendly and attentive. We enjoyed our stay. The hotel room was not large, but it was a comfortable bed and very clean. We had a quiet night and would consider a return visit.
