This is one of the nicer Marriott hotels I've stayed in, and I definitely was not expecting such a big hotel in relatively smaller city. I was unexpectedly greeted upon arrival with an invite to the manager's hors d'oeuvres reception and also was able to redeem some of my Marriott rewards points with a free appetizer. After a long trip getting there, I immediately call in for my free appetizer in the form of room service and got the baby clams -- it was surprisingly delicious and a large portion of it at that. I had a couple of hours to kill so I took up the offer on the free shuttle, and went to the quaint area by Brown University per the front desk's suggestion. I went to the manager reception later that evening as well as breakfast the next day, and both were amazing in their options and quality of food/drink offered. The hotel also has a large gym and salon (that offers everything from hair to nails and was quite busy). The only thing that makes me give it a 4 is that I got contradicting information about whether or not the shuttle went to the Medical Center I needed to get to the next morning, so they got me a cab. But when I got there, another interview candidate told me they were also staying at the same Marriott and just took the free shuttle (?). And also, the manager at the reception/breakfast was for some reason greeting everyone but me when walking in, which was a big peculiar. Other than those two incidents, it really was an impressive place to stay and get a good night's rest for a business trip.
