The experience was okay. The housekeeping forgot to clean my room and they left it unclean until I reentered the room.

Clean and Modern Hotel

Posted Dec 2, 2014
24/7 Statbucks in the Lobby, need I say more??? Super clean and friendly staff! Only con I have to say is that almost every ice machine was broken, other than that, perfect.

Nice Hotel

Posted Dec 2, 2014
Nice rooms but to close to railroad. Traffic very heavy both railroad and street. Don't like the $20. Credit card run on check in. Thought that was not needed for the restaurant. If you wanted to use the restaurant you could use the card then. Did not eat there. IHOP , Waffle House real close and cheaper prices. Would rather find another place to stay.

Nice hotel stay

Posted Dec 1, 2014
Pros: The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean and the lobby was very inviting. It had that festive appearance and the fireplace was very comforting
Cons: All rooms should have a microwave and frig.
The hotel was in excellent condition, the lobby was beautiful with the Christmas tree and fireplace. My only concern was the room came with a frig but not a microwave. Also, one of the face towels was dirty.

A nice stay

Posted Dec 1, 2014
Pros: Beds were fine and staff were great.
Cons: Dining experience was a bit blah. The dining area was uninviting or cold I thought.
Staff were great - I've never stayed somewhere where I felt the staff cared more about my stay then here and asked if all was OK.

Unusually bad Marriot

Posted Nov 30, 2014
saw a 30% off deal while roadtripping...hotel room was dirty, had candy wrappers left uncleaned in room. small room, wierd small hatch on ceiling above bed, which was distressing. possibly bed bugs. suspect harsh chemical or mystery chemical on toilet which caused an allergeric skin reaction after sitting on it. room street level with pool, unsettling.

Great location to USC. Close to Honors Dorm.

Posted Nov 29, 2014
Pros: Convenient location. Stayed here for USC orientation last summer.
Cons: Silence the mini-fridge. If the shower didn't work, did housekeeping really clean the room after the previous guest?
The parking garage is cozy. I wouldn't take an SUV in there. There is street parking beside the hotel. The Amtrak station is not far from the hotel and you will hear trains all night. Starbucks in the lobby has a bar! They also serve breakfast, not just muffins and pastries. A bit pricey but that is the trade for convenience. Quiet hotel other than the Amtrak trains and loud mini-fridge. Had to move rooms in the morning because the shower didn't work. From now on, I will check the shower before unpacking and sleeping!
