a real marriott - in a terrible location
Posted Feb 11, 2017
My Residence Inn in the energy corridor was booked and charging +$200/night, so I decided to try out the marriott. Why not? A real concierge lounge, and WAY more points than I get for the same money at the RI. The Residence Inn on Eldridge is walking distance to a bunch of ok restaurants, good pedi, hair, groceries. And, it is quiet. The marriott itself is a better hotel (better rooms, better amenities, better gym), but the traffic is SUPER loud if you are on the front half of the building, and it is walking distance to an auto dealer, or another auto dealer, or a few small business buildings...nothing. I woke each morning at 5AM and covered my head with the giant pillows - didn't help.
