This is a fairly nice hotel. I really liked the beds. They were really soft and comfortable.
The hotel is located in Ogden's historic district. Unfortunately, there isn't much of Ogden that is actually functional. The mall nearby has been torn down and all of the businesses in the vicinity are vacant. The Marriot is probably about the only thing the city has going for it. I guess it's probably a bit rude of me to say, but I wouldn't want to live in Ogden. It seems to be a very depressed city with lots of crime and gangs. Truthfully, I would rather live in a high priced apartment in some other city than a house in Ogden.
The Ogden marathon is probably a good way of keeping the city going. It goes right by the hotel and seems to really help the hotel with business.
The service wasn't super great, but I think it was because the hotel was packed and it was cinco de mayo so maybe lots of people didn't show up for work.
