Looks like a prison!

Did we need another few hundred hotel rooms this badly?

What an eyesore.

There are no less that FOUR, at least, within a mile of this new Marriott.

Within a mile.

My family is not that big.

LOL, I agree...the design of that hotel (at least on the exterior) is horrible......



The floodlights shining down look rediculous.

They wanted to be open by mid-Feb, but it aint gonna happen.

This is not a Marriott, it's a Fairfield, one of the chains that Marriott bought. They are usually cheaper than their Courtyard and of course cheaper than the real Marriott. I think this location is great for a new hotel to service the corp park next door and the growth we see here. It's not finished yet, they usually look nice once finished and all the decoration is done. I stayed at other Fairfields and they are actually very comfortable, the beds and pillows are the new brand that Marriott is using now in all their hotels. Also it means a few people will have new jobs to maintain the hotel and keep it running.

There's an oversupply of hotels in that area already.....



Yes, I understand that once the landscaping goes in, things look much prettier, however I was talking about the exterior of the building. Very blah and pretty much ugly IMO.
