This is a good hotel for business, or for your last night of a long trip. Near plenty of good restaurants. Hotel restaurant is pricey and very average. Rooms are clean, and they have over the top security on elevators.

This might be one of the nicest hotel visits I have ever had. The staff are all so clever, capable, and friendly, and they clearly take great pride in their work. The result is a hotel when every detail is taken care of and done very well. The art and furnishings are placed with care, the coffee brewed to perfection,...

First night stay in Costa Rica for very late arrival. Very friend staff, checked in very quick. One thing I hate stay the Marriott courtyard, because no breakfast included. The Walmart is just nearby to get everything needed and breakfast.
