The hotel is very conveniently located near the center of town. It is across the street from the bay and shopping. The only things I would have liked are that the towels need to be thicker (they are very thin.....a la Motel 6) and I would have liked there to be a big mirror above the desk.

Good modern hotel located in a very convenient spot, within walking distance of many restaurants and shopping. The bathrooms are very nice and big. Breakfast buffet has a lot of choice. Staff is very friendly. Bedrooms are not particularly well insolated so bring an extra box of earplugs if you like it quiet at night.

Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Also multilingual which can be helpful to some. Rooms are clean and nice. I found the beds too be overly hard and uncomfortable, similarly the pillows. Sheets were of poor quality and rough against the skin. I chose the hotel because of the Marriott name associated with it and the location which was excellent.... More

We were too early for check-in so we were asked to return a few hours later, but left our bags by the reception with no problem. The check in was quick, and we carried our own small carry-on bags to our room. I didn't see a doorman or bellhop, but maybe one is available on call. The room itself met... More

The hotel is in a good location. The staff was very friendly. Located opposite to the cruise boat pier, and walking distance to the mall and a Burger King joint amongst others.
