"My stay at the Marriott was such a pleasure. I have to say the personal was out standing. My room was very lovely. The bed was so soft, I slept like a baby. The breakfast was out standing. I was very sad to leave. I could of been there for a month or so. I will tell all my friends to stay at this hotel. It was close to everything in the area. Thanks again for a Great Visit to your Hotel"
