OK, so to preface this, I am a 30 yr. old Lifetime Platinum member for Marriott who has traveled every week for the last 9 years. I'm not really a "review" guy but am starting to do these a bit more to try and help others.
So, I'll give you a basic review of this hotel: On site parking that is easy and safe. You don't have to worry about a valet b/c its so easy to park. You walk in, and everything looks beautiful as you'd expect. I was on the computer printing something out today actually and they had a woman walking around with wine glasses filled with icewater... nice touch. Nice restaurant & bar. Room service is about what you get from a Marriott. Good, not great, food. All the same once you've stayed at so many.
The one drawback, and for me, its a fairly big one. I'm traveling on business and stayed here last week and now this week. Last week, my only option was wireless internet. S L O W. Fades in and out. Really really slow around 9pm on a Wednesday night. 2nd floor room. Stayed here at same hotel this week and tonight, same thing. 4th floor. slow wireless. REALLY SLOW. Luckily, there is a wired box in this room and I found an ethernet cord in the room and used it. Boom. Totallly different internet experience. Now its ultra fast.
So... in summary - all the quality that you'd expect from a Marriott. Gets the job done. Starbucks on premesis. Restaurant/bar on premesis. Concierge lounge is fine - on 14th floor. Honor bar there. Everything gets the job done at an above average level, except the wireless internet. I need to repeat this again - the wireless internet is slow - so don't stay here if you plan on getting a lot of work done on it. Also, remember all full service Marriotts charge for internet - it is not free and isn't free at any full service Marriott unless you're a Platinum member. $13/day. Otherwise, the hotel is spot on.
