“Stay away from the "new concept" remodelled restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2011

On the surface this is a great hotel. We had a bad breakfast here a year or two ago, so were happy to see they have addressed this problem by opening a new one. Errrrr.....the light is so bright that it hurts your eyes. They were blasting the Killers when we came in for breakfast, so we asked for them to turn down the music. They put on some lovely blues, for about two songs life was good. Then we were joined by a different staff member who went back to blasting the Killers, and as if that weren't bad enough carrying a conversation with another staff member on the other side of the room. When I say conversation, I'm being polite

They aren't used to having people, for good reason, don't disturb the staff, go somewhere else.

On the bright side the food isoverpriced but swallow-able.

If the new concept in the remodel is: bright, loud and uncomfortable they nailed it.

To be fair the hotel is nice for around here, just beware the restaurant.

This hotel was priced competitively with much cheaper brands and it was a very nice, modern, clean and up to date property in every way.

Our son’s wedding was just held at the Racine Marriott. We stayed three nights for the wedding itself and twice in the last year in the planning process. We have corresponded a dozen or more times in the last month with the catering director who handled the wedding reception arrangements. I have nothing but praise for every employee at the hotel. They work very hard and respond immediately to all requests in professional manner.

The hotel is nicely furnished and has all the amenities one could want. We rented a hospitality suite adjacent to our room for two days as a pre and post reception meeting place and entertainment center for the bridal party and wedding guests. We were offered several options and were helped with suggestions to get what we wanted while minimizing expense. Considerable time was invested by the staff to honor my request of booking family and bridal party guests into specific rooms surrounding the hospitality suite to form a sound barrier that would buffer any noise so as not to keep other guests awake as we went well into the early morning celebrating.

A nice variety of great food and beverages were offered. The reception was held in a large ballroom and was terrific. The specific needs of a handicapped groomsman were handled flawlessly showing experience in this matter. This will be our place to stay anytime in the future that we are near Racine. It is wonderful!!!

Room Tip: Many options to choose from. Tell them what you want and they work hard to satisfy you. We made many...

Very much the old standard for a Marriott. Check in was good, my Marriott profile says I want a fridge and extra feather pillows and the hotel made sure I had both. the room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable, nice flat screen TV. Large bar with several TV’s and a great bar tender. This hotel in not inexpensive but for the area I guess the price is fair. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Some rooms have fridge and microave. this room is a little larger than the standard room.
