I called this Marriott on the off change they had two rooms at a government rate, with no notice and no reservation. The voice on the other end of the phone line was pleasant and helpful. Unless I had a hundred friends, they had rooms. We received two standard rooms, each with a king size bed. Large flat screen TV, lights that came on right away and actually provided light, large desk with a couple extra outlets in the lamp. Wi-fi is available for $9.95/day. No fridge in the room. In the older Marriotts this is common. Not a huge gripe, just annoying. Across the street are two deli type places and a Starbucks with wi-fi. Also within a couple blocks walking distance is a huge, very well-kept mall, a US Navy museum and a memorial museum for Gen Douglas Macarthur that is fascinating and a must-see for fans of WWII history. Lots of restaurants and coffee shops in the immediate vicinity. There isn't much to do in the hotel itself, but as usual in the Marriott chain, there is a great little gym and pool area. I would stay here again, it's pleasant and well located.
