Nice clean property. Definitely mostly for businessmen. A very stern and somber atmosphere. The bed was not very comfortable and linens and pillows were well worn out. The staff made a car reservation for our ride to the airport but the driver was 20 minutes late and it was a red taxi in super poor condition with no shocks. For the same price the hotel across the street got us a new private ride in a luxury vehicle that arrived on time. No service at breakfast but they requested a tip! Not sure why this hotel has the poorer options and services (both are Marriott properties), but we will stay across the street next time. Better vibe and better service.

Some of the staff were super friendly but a few made the others look bad. Room cleaning was late on our first day in the hotel. The bath towels are in really bad shape and should be thrown away.
