I can't say enough good things about the employees at this hotel. I temporarily had lost my phone and was pretty frantic, but Patrick Kirby in loss prevention was unbelievable. He personally helped me dig through hundreds of towels from the pool looking for my phone. Incredibly thoughtful Also the bellman Manny Garcia, very helpful The young man cooking at...

I am very disappointed in the service we received at this hotel. And shocked. I've stayed here before and never had an issue. This time was a disaster. I did not get the room which was requested. The valet area was a nightmare I almost got hit twice. The elevators were under construction and renovation which is good because they...

I am a loyal Marriott rewards member and I have stayed here before on business but I wanted my husband to experience this area when we were on vacation. Was disappointed when we checked in that they didn't have a room with a balcony and view blocked for me because I called about a week before checkin and was assured...

Room was very small, not cleaned completely each day, left dirty coffee cups and coffee service not refreshed. Is very conveniently located just outside of trolley that you can take just about anywhere for a few bucks. Walking distance to the convention center. Hotel restaurant and bar very expensive. Elevators run slow and they had a few shut down during...

I've stayed here a bunch of times and always love it. Has all the great features you expect of a Marriott. Love that it is right along the channels which have a fantastic running path. At this stay I really appreciated Carl Fuller, Jr's hard work at the Concierge Lounge. Can't go wrong here.

Below average. My room was not clean. The coffee service in the room was incomplete Then I noticed the missing paper cups were in an unemptied trash can. Room service was awful. Beautiful building and lobby, but the front desk staff explained that I could not book a shuttle to the airport through the hotel. I was told to walk...

Convenient location, nice view from any side of the building and excellent service from all the hotel staff. The street car stop is right aside the hotel and you can take it to many attractive places like Yibor City. The Riverwalk trail is just beside the main building and it is really a wonderful experience to have a walking along...

Host hotel for a convention/business meeting. Was able to get a room high up with a beautiful view of the water. Was not in town long enough to fully enjoy but I did get a run in along the river. Had good, but slow service at the outside seating area near the bar on Sunday night. Overall this was a...

This hotel could be so much better with attention in the right places. The staff were excellent and service levels high. The fabric of the hotel is however showing fatigue and this is where the focus should be. Tired decor generally and furniture that is outdated and uncomfortable in some cases. I had a room on the 4th floor looking...

The staff was wonderful. The price was reasonable for such a nice place. Our room overlooked the river and we even saw some dolphins a couple times. The hotel I believe has 700 rooms but did not seem crowded. There are a couple restaurants on site and a great bar in the lobby area. We took advantage of the patio...
