Stayed here for a wedding. As a previous reviewer mentioned, this is a popular place for weddings around the area. (They do give a generously discounted rate for wedding groups.) So noisy people may be coming back late at night on weekends, but I doubt this happens during the week.
This is an atrium hotel so about half the rooms face the atrium, and some face an inner hallway/corridor where there are conference rooms, and sliding doors face the hallway. I got a hallway room and immediately requested a change, which they did the next day. The room is the same as other rooms - but I felt like I was sleeping in a hallway. You have zero privacy with curtains open, no sun, and if people are noisy in the conference rooms you will hear it.
The atrium has an open chlorinated indoor pool and there can be a smell of chlorine in the long hallways you walk down to get to all rooms, even the outside rooms - not just on the first floor but other floors. If you're sensitive to this, it would be best to stay somewhere else. The outside room I was switched to was much more pleasant but windows don't open, so again, if you're chemically sensitive, be aware.
You have to call a couple of days in advance to avoid an inner or atrium room as they do get completely booked up. The staff are nice and try to be helpful / accommodating but if they're booked up, there's nothing they can do to change your room.
Otherwise, the hotel was more or less what you would expect of a Marriott and once my room was changed, I was happy and comfortable there.
