This is a great place to stay. The front desk staff and concierge were very friendly and helpful. We were within walking distance of the Power and Light District and the convention center is next door. The rooms had plenty of space, the beds were comfortable and everything was clean. We were on the 16th floor and the view was...

I am trying pretty hard to be loyal to one hotel brand, mostly for points maximization. But it's hard when there are notable inconsistencies among all brands. Some Hilton properties are amazing, others are really not. Some Marriott properties are amazing, and others are...mediocre. This property unfortunately is sort of mediocre. It's got potential, no doubt. Good location in the...

First, the front desk, guest service staff and valet were wonderful. Very friendly and quick. I would recommend doing valet as that just makes parking easier. However, we were put in the older building and it was unimpressive. For the money I spent for a one night at the Marriott I was expecting a nicer room. (The Aladdin had much...

The hotel is conveniently located next to the convention center and some of the city's hot spots. My room was in the Muehlebach tower which is a cross-walk away from the main hotel. It was a little further away from the main lobby and you had an extra step to get access to the sleeping rooms but not too terribly...

for the price, I expected excellence. Not a analog TV with very poor reception. Not wobbly old night stands, no usb plug ins for phone chargers. I paid 230 for one night.... It should be better Than this.

Stayed on business- location was fantastic. Found the room clean and viable but the furniture and bathroom really shows the age of the hotel, and that its ready for a re-vamp!

I stayed here for a convention and my room was in the main tower. It was clean, comfortable and offered the quality you expect from Marriott. The staff was outstanding at every turn.

I've stayed here many times before. The staff is attentive and the concierge lounge is large with great staff. The rooms, however, need a refresh.

Attending a large meeting, and was relegated to the Muelbach Tower, despite an early check-in and a really high Marriott status. The furniture in the room is all nicked up, the door looks like it's been kicked around a few times too. A long way away from the lobby and resources like the executive lounge. This isn't a Motel 6,...
