"Friendly helpful staff, limited frills"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Booked during Arnold classic for $211/night. Not worth the inflamed rate. Appreciated the in room fridge though the "gym" was disappointing. Had to go to another gym to work out. Was mostly quiet until 6am when kids started running up the hall. Room was generally clean, and breakfast buffet was nice. All in all, I will not book this hotel again for the price. Maybe for $100 less! The staff was nice though.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"I had already contacted Marriott prior to finding your site, but you got us a deal $24 cheaper per night than Marriott was willing to offer! Also, since the rooms are blocked for our wedding, the website with our own URL was perfect. This was the most convenient and easy to use service I have encountered since starting to plan the wedding. I had the whole room blocking process done in 48 hours, it saved a lot of time and money. Thanks!" C.T. - Richmond, BC
