Spent two nights here last week to attend a wedding. I was using points so I needed a Marriott property and am glad I booked this one. The rooms are spacious and the mattresses and bedding are very comfortable. I like the seperate seating area as we had several wine and cheese gatherings in the rooms. Breakfast is good quality and a level above what's typical for inclusive hotels. The juice machine was broken during our stay, but for guests requesting juice the front desk was giving it out from the mini market. The property is in a good location, out of the lights, and Athens is about 10 minutes away. Shopping and dining options abound with most of the major chains within a 5 minute drive. The hotel staff was really great, helped getting us a wine opener and loaned us a phone charger for one in our party who forgot theirs. They really have a great staff. Lastly, the crew managing breakfast were incredible and on our second morning we had several members of the wedding party hit breakfast right before 10. The staff restocked everything for them and stayed open another 15 minutes to make sure they got fed. I've not seen that happen very often. You can't go wrong staying here.
