Great downtown location. Located where weekend markets are held. Beautiful hotel, modern with a great bar/restaurant area. They also have valet at $25/day. Rooms were clean and bed comfy. We love the Marriott brand and seek them out.

I came for a business conference. The room was very clean and nice. The staff was also pleasant. However, most likely I will not stay again for the following reasons: Because it was booked through my business, we had to pay for wifi in the rooms. ($8-$15 a day). Also, check out is at 12 pm. We had pretty much got our things out, but left food and drink items to be refrigerated and not in the hot car. About 20 minutes before check out I went to get the rest of the things out and things were moved and some items missing. Could definitely tell it was in process of cleaning as the sheets was missing, and cleaned out. Thank goodness it wasn't anything expensive missing. My charger was still in the room which was the most expensive item we left.
