There's no sparkle or pizazz to the Marriott Madison West, but I had no issues during my brief stay for a business trip.
The room was clean, but in need of an update. Some of the furniture was so rickety I was worried it was going to break out from under me, and the cheap fixtures were showing their age slightly.
The mattresses are imitation memory foam, and a little bit too firm for my tastes, but your mileage may vary as everyone's sleep preferences differ.
I have a love-hate relationship with the "cavernous" hotel design, because while it provides an airy and open atmosphere, it also means that anything happening in the lobby transmits to all the room doors. I was on the second floor and heard conversation and the active water fountain sound from my room. Thankfully activity died down later in the night so I could sleep, but I highly recommend a room on the highest floor you can get so you're furthest from the noise.
The staff was friendly and courteous and I had no complaints about the service during my brief stay. This factor alone makes the hotel worth coming back to, in my mind.
The restaurant actually has decent breakfast entrees; I recommend the crispy French toast. Naturally, go out somewhere else for your coffee.
The convention center is small but functional, with food service that was on-par. I will note that Wifi at the event was worse than usual with frequent drop-outs, and "tech support" handed me a phone number for an outsourced company that doesn't even service the hotel any longer. No one at the event could stay online for more than 5 minutes and the staff's only advice was "reboot." Being in I.T. myself, I know how finicky wifi can be so I don't like to nitpick on it too much, but It definitely needs work in the con space.
Overall, this isn't a bad hotel, and a few folks have judged it a lot more harshly than I would have. Not a bad stay, and I wouldn't have a problem doing so again.
