The hotel was in the heart of campus and a great place to stay for walking to the restaurants downtown. The lobby and the room was beautiful. The bar was nice and they had live music which was a nice touch . I would recommend this hotel if you are visiting Michigan State University!

Just live staying in a Marriott. The place is so clean. Nicely renovated. Quick check in. Nicely appointed room. So comfy. Walking distance to MSU and local establishments. Great parking too in garage. Marriott never disappoints.

This is so much nicer than the place we stayed previously. The staff is ridiculously accommodating. From the moment we walked in, till checkout, we couldn't have seen more helpful people. Room service had a decent menu. Happy with everything. The room, 513, could not have been better. The bed was incredibly comfortable. We took the cases off the pillow...

I stayed at the East Lansing Marriott two years ago and I dreaded returning to it. My room was noisy, the heating/cooling unit wasn't working properly (even after the maintenance person had tried to fix it), and the place overall was dumpy and shabby. But I couldn't find another play to stay this time--including Airbnb--that was so convenient to the...

We were here several weeks ago for a football weekend. Really like this place. The 5 stars is relative vis a vis the options in Lansing. Sure, it not a Four seasons or Mandarin Oriental, but it does not try to be or need to be. The renovations to the rooms are nice and the staff are great from the...

I attended brunch here for a family gathering. I have celiac disease and cannot eat gluten, it wreaks havoc on my body and makes me sick for days. The waitress was not accommodating at all so I asked to speak to the manager. The manager was very rude. She had an angry attitude and treated me like I was being...

I stayed here recently with a friend for a weekend event at MSU. The hotel's lobby is bright and contemporary with lots of chairs and tables for eating and drinking or just hanging out. The bar is in the middle of the action and I imagine it's pretty noisy on a football weekend, but it was quiet for us. The...

Came here for a meeting, and was in awe with the ease of finding handicapped parking, ample spaces in the parking garage, easy access to the elevators, ease of finding bathrooms, and the surprise of glass elevators. Would love to stay here, but was out of budget. Planning on the next trip. Would love to stay here.

Stayed here 2 nights for Michigan State'sHomecoming. You can't beat the location which is within walking distance of most everything! Despite being a weekend that can be particularly rowdy, security was evident and it was quiet in the rooms. Since you can't bring purses in the football stadium, I was surprised to find no money/jelwelry safe in the room nor...

I was on a business trip and spent 4 nights at the hotel. The rooms were big, clean and comfortable. The hotel's location is ideal - everything is within walking distance. Very friendly staff. A very good choice overall. The only thing I did not like, was the extra charge for internet access. As there are other similar but less...
