This is a new hotel from the ground up. Built in 2017. Yes, it’s part of the Marriott family of hotels and resorts. You may use or collect Marriott Rewards points here. This is and art’s themed hotel. Interesting and fun. Extra friendly everywhere. Great rooms and suites. There is no parking fees, but they do charge a $20.00 a day fee for recreation. That will get you free bikes to ride and transportation with in a few miles to restaurants and events in their fancy new van. One of our favorite French restaurants is one block away. Bijou.  Two blocks from the hotel is Duval’s Seafood Restaurant. They have the best Mussels in a mustard cream sauce. I am well aquatinted with this hotel, having stayed over 20 days here in 2018. For Breakfast there is an excellent restaurant two blocks away, First Watch, I love this place. And yes, the Hotel restaurant  is good as well. MFS
