Everything was great except for the pay ahead breakfast for the "Bistro" in lobby. The breakfast left my husband and I wanting more. Would have been better just getting fast food or not eating at all.

Not exactly the best place I've ever stayed

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: employee attitudes & helpfulness
There are many activities and resturants surrounding this hotel, however, if you don't know the area don't expect much help from the staff. Each time we asked for directions or recommendations for activities, etc. we were told to go map it on there interactive board in the lobby. (I'm a former employee of this hotel chain and would have been fired on the spot for this type of attitude# The maid complained about not getting paid for not cleaning our room when we asked just for towels. The room was clean upon arrival however we had to search for everything #mini fridge, hair dryer, no phone book, etc) and a little cramped. The resturant prices are outragous, we got snacks that evening and could have taken the whole family to a nice resturant for the prices.

Hotel review

The hotel was very good. centrally located. Had shuttle to almost anywhere you wanted to go.Friendly service.Decent gym-small but adequate.Nice to have Applebys in hotel My only complaint was that my room was not cleaned until after 4PM. By then I just wanted clean towels and couldn't be bothered. I had been out the entire day and just wanted to rest when they came to clean

Great!

I went to Charlotte with my husband and son for a housewarming. All we needed was a hotel that provided breakfast and the Marriott came through and then some. Loved the pool. Service was courteous and fast. Room was quite comfortable. They do have restaurants within walking distance.
