"Great day at the Marriott! We used valet and they were very nice. Check-in was a breeze and we had reserved a day bed. The pool attendant came over immediately with water and a fruit bowl. We ordered drinks from the bar and the service was very good and friendly. Pool is large and saltwater. Nice view of the river walk." - Beth F., ResortPass, September 2021.
