Stayed overnight for company party at this property and this makes the second year in a row at this location. Lobby, public areas and ballroom are nice but the guest rooms leave a lot to be desired for the "Marriott" name.

There is a lovely exterior courtyard garden off the lobby for relaxing and an excellent terrace bar on the third floor. There was live music on the terrace the evening we visited...
