    We stayed here this summer and it was a nice hotel in a great location. It was a convenient walk to just about everything we wanted to do. The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and we'd happily stay here again.

    Stayed at Marriott to be within walking distance to Civic Center. Needed a snack prior to concert and the bar area in the lobby had some great choices! They even offered transportation to the Civic Center!
