I have stayed at many different hotels before from marriott to big resorts, and to other chains, but my stay here exceeded my expectations. My room was clean spacious and very comfortable. They are doing work on the hotel to update it, but i never heard construction once. The bar/restaurant downstairs was perfect for a quick tasty bite. What made this stay so special to me were the people working. Everyone was so kind and accommodating for any need you might have. Someone was always checking in or trying to eagerly assist me with any question i might have had. Paul, at the front desk was kind enough to give me a later check out time since my flight didnt leave until later on that day. I wasnt expecting that but was so appreciative. Another person who stuck out to me was JJ the shuttle driver. He will pick you up and and drop you off anywhere you need to go in a 3 mile radius. He even picked me up and my friend from a wedding. He is amazing and full of so much information about the area. I can't wait to come back and see the new completed renovations. Your staff really made my trip special. This marriott silver elite member is very happy!
