Marriottts continue to excell !!!! This newly renovated hotel is contemporary, extremely clean rooms, incredible bedding and pillows make it nearly impossible to get anywhere on time and staff is beyond accommodating. A Starbucks in the lobby completes your stay!

We were there for a campus tour. Our tour guide was wonderful and the 2.5 hour tour was very thorough. Our guide, Kirsten, even spent about 30 minutes talking with us and answering questions.

Always majestic and impressive. This was the first time in my life I have been there and there wasn’t a football game going on. So it was nice to see it like that.
