“Wonderful stay!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

Great rooms and location. Our room was very spacious, clean and quiet. Nice to have a kitchen with table to eat and play cards. Also the roll away bed with a tv in a separate room for kids. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is also walking distance to many great restaurants. Great stay for us.

Pros: Rooms and common spaces have been renovated; rooms are like mini apartments with full kitchens (huge), W/D, DW and separate living room/dining area. Friendly service at the front desk. Complimentary water was offered after a long trip, which was nice.

Cons: Service spotty. I called ahead of time to have my Marriott number added to my reservation and to request a king (and hope that I might get a nicer room as a result). They could not add my number ahead of time. Huh? Upon entering the room (no one set expectation with me at check in), was given a queen on the sixth floor (613). AC was incredibly noisy -- so much so that we turned it off; room became hot and stuffy interrupting sleep. Water "gushing" sounds emanated from the pipes and was quite loud as well. Fitted sheets did not stay on bed. "Duvet" was barely large enough for bed. Horrible night's sleep my first night there. Tried to call the front desk to cancel my room the last day of my stay; was re-routed to two different call centers. Had to call back. Ten minutes later, still did not have a cancelled room.

More cons: Parking garage is inadequate, dated and requires expert driving skills. Elevators slow and "jumpy." Card keys frequently didn't work.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Towson University Marriott for 2 nights. I found the staff (both front desk & restaurant mgr) to be VERY accommodating throughout my stay. My suite had a separate bedroom, full kitchen, washer, dryer. Very nice. I utilized the hotel van once for an appointment and it was very punctual. This hotel does not offer room service which I'm accustomed to however there is a Starbucks within walking distance and I made the trek over one night for a snack. Overall by stay was a very pleasant one & I would certainly return.

Strangely this is the second Marriott of 3 I will be staying in over the coming weeks and things seem to be going from downhill . Last weeks review got an average , this weeks a poor and there are tow main reasons.
The first is the poor state of the building , i am a light sleeper as you know and the windows in these rooms look like they were installed in the 90's and offer as much sound protection as a plastic bag.It was not just my room i asked a colleague as well , i was awake from 6am with the buses and cars on the road , she was awake at 5am with the trash truck outside . My room was on the 8th floor at the far end but overlooked the main road . After little sleep the first night i moves into the second smaller bedroom on the second night ( i was given a suite for some reason) and that was slightly better . But the peeling paint all around the place and the rotten window sills from the leaking water coming in through the windows was not nice.
Secondly the inconstant service , no paper on the first day , paper on the second day . Turn down service on the first day , not on the second day , no replenishment of the bathroom shampoo etc on the second day . Some of the staff were nice and a special call goes out to Larry behind the bar who seemed to have the right attitude and customer service interest.

Room Tip: One away from any outside noise as that's the biggest problem

Every thing bout this hotel was awesome.. Stayed in the executive suite and it was very spacious with a kitchenette and 2 living rooms.. The bathroom was separated from the bedroom.. Room service was on point and services were always available. Breakfast hours lasted until 11 which made it convenient for sleeping in and still being able to make it. The balcony and view was so peaceful. Prices were reasonable. I love this hotel and I would recommend this place to anyone..

I am used to staying at Springhill Suites Marriotts. That's what I thought I had booked this time. these are nice multi purpose mini suites, good for short stays.
What a surprise when we walked in to a beautifully decorated, large, apartment like accommodation. The price was terrific, too.
A full kitchen with refrigerator, range, dishwasher, sink, cabinets and dishes and silverware. A large bedroom. A full size living room. Two large TVs. A bathroom so sumptuous and spacious it had two entrances, one from the hallway and one from the bedroom. Two large closets.
Fabulous.
My only complaint is that I am used to getting a good breakfast included in the price and no one told me that it was separate. We did have the breakfast anyway and it was a full buffet with eggs anyway you wanted them and everything as much as you could eat. $15. plus tax and tip.
Across the street from the campus and good parking.
If you are visiting kids at Towson or just need a place to stay near here, I highly recommend this hotel.

Very nice Marriott hotel situated across the street from Towson University (even has a walkway that leads from the hotel over the street and into the University). In close proximity to the town center of Towson. I did not walk it, but you could. Was upgraded to a 1-BR suite with balcony. Breakfast buffet at the University Club (inside the hotel) was top-notch with both hot and cold foods. Free parking in the underground garage. There was also another restaurant in the hotel for lunch and dinner, which I did not visit. Hotel was very clean and staff were very accomodating and friendly.

Room Tip: Take a high floor facing the University (front of the hotel), for nice views of the University.
