Very good hotel in a nice area.
Very nice hotel in good neighborhood. The only small spot of bother was that there is only one lift and it is very busy sometimes. Otherwise everything was very good.

Clean and pet friendly
Pet friendly hotel with a very good breakfast. There is no air conditioning and the windows do not open more than 3 or 4 inches, so it can be a little uncomfortable during warm summer days.

You can do better
The hotel is a bit out of the way, on the university campus. The breakfast was awful and was served in the lobby area. My towels were not replaced even though I indicated I wanted fresh ones and dishwasher was not run by the housekeeping staff. There was also an unattended howling and barking dog audible for hours until the guests asked the staff to call the owners back to their room.

This Marriott does not live up to the "typical" Marriott standard. We were surprised by many small (by themselves) deficiencies that add up to sub-standard. There was mold around the caulk/grout at the base of the shower. The sink was "in" the bedroom (not set aside nor with a door) meaning anyone getting up at night had to fumble around in darkness or disturb the other with the light. The lighting was simply terrible with a single little bulb over the sink which cast dark shadows on the face. The floor was barked up from scuffing from heavy objects. The shower drain had no trap in it to block the sounds of people using showers above(?) or below(?). There was only a single elevator serving 8 floors which meant frequent waits. NO AIR CONDITIONING which was a problem on the upper floors even in Edinburgh (in June). The toilet seat, while fully functional, was pressed off to one side (crooked). Two burnt out light bulbs in the room. They don't last forever but maid service should be checking for simple things like this. Service was fine with polite and professional people. Location not great but it was by choice. Lots of hot water. Weak WIFI. Overall, I would book elsewhere, if space were available.
