Reception personnel - Asia, Kim and Nathan - are great. Kim and Nathan essentially saved my trip. I mentioned to Kim that I would be at the hotel again in a few days. She quickly checked the reservation file, and couldn't find my "second" reservation. My error! I thought I had booked two stays at the hotel, separated by a couple of days. However, I had booked my second stay at a different hotel in the Marriott family. Kim quickly corrected my mistake. Then, when attempting to confirm my arrival for the second stay, I hit "cancel". A quick call to Nathan corrected my second error, and I was able to request early check-in.
Cecilia in food service is a delight. The breakfast offerings are varied and plentiful - eggs, sausage, ham, cheese, hard-cooked eggs, breads and muffins, porridge, dry cereal, two types of yogurt (Activia and Oikos), fresh strawberries, oranges, bananas, pineapple.
The hotel is close to I-40, so if traffic hum is bothersome, request a room away from I-40. Ask for a room on the west side of the hotel.
The fitness center is small, but adequate: 2 treadmills, 1 elliptical, 1 bike, free weights, 1 bench. It would be improved with the addition of a second bench or a yoga mat for stretching and floor exercises.
I recommend adding a second grab bar at the tub. The single grab bar is installed at the head of the tub, which is adjacent to the toilet. It's awkward to hold the grab bar while attempting to get footing on the floor, and avoid the toilet. It's much easier to exit at the foot of the tub, but there's no grab bar.
