My friends and I only stayed for one weekend night for an evening out on the town but our stay was a pleasant one and we will definitely find ourselves back here again in the future. We requested a room on a high floor, preferably with larger square footage, and were given the handicapped accessible room on the top floor. We were also informed up-front that the room does not have a tub but that was an acceptable trade-off for us. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the room smelled fresh. The decor was nothing memorable but seeing as to how we weren't there to sit in our hotel room, it wasn't really an issue.
Hotel management here is above average. We had to change rooms after finding out that a water main leak had affected the entire floor (water was coming out brown from the sink and shower) and they gave us an identical room a few floors down along with compensatory gift vouchers for the buffet breakfast the next morning, which was excellent.
The gym/pool on the 5th floor was an added bonus. The fitness equipment was new and well maintained with every cardio machine equipped with its own personal tv monitor (you can obtain a complimentary headset from the onsite attendant). The pool is comparatively small and overrun with children (maybe this was a weekend thing) but the whirlpool was nice and large.
Location-wise, you can't beat this hotel. It is connected to the Prudential Center and Copley Square (shopping & eating to your heart's content) and only a few blocks away from Newbury Street. It's also about a 1 mile walk to Fenway Park ($6 cab ride) and the surrounding Boston area bar/club scene.
Parking tip: Parking overnight at the Marriott will run you $44 but if you park at the Prudential Center next door and print out the parking coupon from their website, it will only cost you $25 for 24 hours.
