I frequently travel to Augusta for business, and have always stayed at the Marriott, primarily due to its proximity to my customer in the area.  All in all, a fine hotel, with a great location - right next to the river, with a fantastic river walk right behind the hotel.  

I have stayed in both the Marriott Hotel side, and the Suites side.  Both are fine, although the Marriott rooms have old tube type TVs while the Suites side has flat screens - although they are not HD.

Big pluses for location, style and attractiveness of the hotel, and the Marriott folks are always freindly and helpful - a common trait for the Augusta area.

Minuses - the resteraunt food is not the greatest.  Also the "fitness center" is laughable - 2 elipticals (one of which hasnt worked in three years) and a universal machine, circa 1980, is about it.  However, if the weather is decent, a jog along the riverwalk definately makes up for the lack of a decent fitness center.

All in all, one of my favorite hotels in all of my travels.  Include HD in the rooms, and upgrade the fitness center, and this is a 5 star hotel in my book.

I travel a lot for work, and I'm usually placed in a Marriott. I have yet to stay in an unfavorable Marriott, and Augusta Convention Center has also met my needs and standards.

The hotel has a nice interior and exterior, if you don't count the construction going on for the expansion project. It's right next to the Savannah River and offers a great riverwalk to wander if the weather isn't too bad. I even went running along the riverwalk and up/down the many flights of stairs once it cooled off in the evening. There is an outdoor pool located next to the gym in the Tower. There is an indoor pool over in the Suites. The gym was okay--not a lot of equipment but better than some of the other Marriott's I've visited. The gym was very clean and well stocked with towels, water, disposable earphones, etc. They even keep fresh apples and bananas in the gym.

The room was nice and clean. The old tube televisions have been replaced with flat panels. There is a refrigerator but no microwave. Air conditioning worked well. Free WiFi!

The staff was also very friendly and accommodating.

Within walking distance to a lot of restaurants. I recommend the Mellow Mushroom (pizza), about 2-3 blocks away.

I did receive the mysterious $1 charge on my bill marked 'Transaction Fee.' But I just informed int he front desk and they took the fee off.

Minus 1 star for parking. It is $5 a day, and the spaces are TINY. There was a convention going on for the first few days I was there and parking was a bit more scarce, so I had to squeeze my mid-size rental car into a tiny space between two cars that were parked very poorly. If it looks full on the main level, try the downstairs level. You may have better luck. Once the convention cleared out, parking was plentiful.

If work sends me back to Augusta, I wouldn't mind staying here again.

Watch for the hidden costs!
This hotel will charge you $9.95 for the "high speed" Internet access, regardless of Marriott status. They will waive it but you have to go through multiple layers and waste a lot of time. Also they have the sneaky $1.00 room fee. Not a tax but a bs charge. Plus they charge $5 for self parking and $15 for valet. Have you ever been to Augusta? Space isn't a premium to say the least.
With all that said it's probably one of the better hotels in Augusta...not saying much.

Beautiful Old Charm.plus all the bells and whistles you'd expect with a 5 star hotel. Great beds, rooms nicely decorated. Frig. Room service was excellent. The dinning room was also excellent, where we ate three times.

What a fantastic hotel. I stayed here because of a convention that I attended. The room was perfect, the food choices near the hotel were perfect....there is a Cajun place just up the street. I would come back here anytime. The price was agreeable, and the room was warm, comfy and quiet.

Grammy Kami and Super Papa and I stayed here Sat check in 4pm till Monday am check out. Service was not always as fast as it could be, but people very friendly and willing to help when they could. Room's very nice and what you need. Breakfast was very good also on Saturday am.    Located near or on top of the Savanna River and River walk. River walk we did not do this trip as weather did not let us but have done and a great reason to stay at this hotel. Also we visited the Morris Museum across the parking lot and would say its worth the time, on Sunday's its free!. Also if you stay at this hotel you must have a meal at Boll Weevil that you can walk right out too on the side of the hotel.  Many places you can walk too with this hotel choice.

Felt welcomed the minute we walked thru the doors. Prices (for this So Cal gal) extremely reasonable. Sitting areas are abundant and private. 2 pools and a gym (if you are so inclined lol) I preferred to walk along the Savannah river. Art museum (free on Sunday's) right next door.
Housekeeping accommodating. Carrie our breakfast server was without question excellent. As well as Stephanie in the lounge. Many ballroom venues here as well. Would definitely stay here again.

Writing a letter to corporate does nothing regarding customer (lack of) service. How is it that NO hotel rooms are ready prior to 4pm? So... All of the sudden at 4 pm all rooms are available ??? Highly unlikely... I'm a platinum elite member and the front desk rep, tells me ...you know sir, check in time isn't until 4..... I stay at Marriott hotels 90 nights a year... I know when hotels check in and I don't appreciate the condescending tone, nor the inaccurate data that rooms are not available for crack in until 4. I would have cancelled my reservation, but the policy is 24 hours in advance of this hotel. If Mr Marriott arrived at this hotel or witnessed how many Marriott personnel walked by me in the lobby with my suitcase opened, computer bag and phone on the table, while I slept on the couch, there would be some choice words from him.... I've met him at the JW Marriott in New Orleans... He commands respect and not just for him but for the number one revenue source... His customers.

I didn't get to stay here but spent quite a few hours here during the TechNet Augusta 2013 conference. Hospitality suite was great. Omelets, quiche, fresh fruit and great staff. I had a blogger badge instead of an exhibitor badge and plenty of other venues wouldn't have let me deliver the giveaways to the booth before my early morning keynote. They let me, and there was no security breach. The Gaylord resorts should take note. The riverwalk out back is breath-taking. I definitely want to stay there next year if I get to go.

What an experience to forget!  With the reservation not showing up in the system,  I had to check in as a new booking to hope rooms were available.  In addition to that, as a Platinum Elite, I didn't get that treatment as an Elite member.  Front desk didn't give me room preference or other perks until after I reminded them.  To top that, the shower was cold and cold!  No warm or hot water.  Even Marriott corporate didn't help.

Very nice Mariott in downtown Augusta GA.  Overall the entire staff was very friendly and eager to help. The valet staff was great, very pleasant and  joking with us the who weekend. We found our room nice if not dated.  My wife and I loved this location because we were able to wake up Saturday morning and take a nice long stroll along the riverwalk an even found an excellent farmers market a few blocks from the hotel. The hotel restaurant was very good for a nice Sunday brunch or evening drink. I would stay here again the next time I am in town.

This hotel provides an excellent stay. Comfortable rooms, very friendly staff. Free wifi. Great restaurant. Excellent downtown location; walking distance to many restaurants, and the river. Recommended. Self park in attached garage is $8/day. $15 for valet.

I was looking for a nice place to stay were I could enjoy local eats and the river and I was not disappointed.  Upon arrival I was pleased to see how secure the parking was as I had a car full of stuff from traveling.  The check-in was speedy and staff pleasant.  I had requested an upper floor end of hall.  Received an upper floor near mid-hall but was actually pleased with the room.  Kudos on having tea in the room for those of us who do not drink coffee.  My room was standard but still had a nice side view of the river.   All amenities in the room were functional and in good repair.  Enjoyed walking on the river and waking to cool local places for dinner.  Overall very good experience.

This place rocks on a few points:
- fitness center: earphones for use? Whoa!
- service: excellent! I mean who asks for your membership number and adds it without you providing details?
- housekeeping: attentive, I put up "Do Not Distrub" sign and they left a voicemail and card through the door in case I needed anything.

I am definitely a fan!!!

Stood in the hotel part for a military convention,  nice hotel rooms were good I had 2 double beds. The only complaint I have is the parking we drive a suv and it was impossible to get into a parking without being with arms reach of the next vehicle or pole and then to be charged 7.00 was ridiculous.

I checked into the Partridge inn thinking it would be okay, but no! After getting my refund from hotels.com , I was so happy that Marriott was able to offer me the best rate for the night. As soon as I walked in the staff couldn't be anymore welcoming. The staircase and chandelier would have you mistaken this as some boutique hotel. The manager checked me in quickly and with such warmth. As soon as I entered my room, a lady showed up to de-feather my room. She was sweet and professional.

I cannot be happier looking out Savannah River and the outdoor pool from my window.

I will definitely recommend this hotel to everybody who ever visits Augusta!

We stayed 3 nights. We were here for a wedding. Dinner after the wedding practice was in Augustino's on the lobby level. I rate the restaurant and hotel 5 stars. The facilities and the staff are A-one, including the friendly & helpful bellhops. Most of the wedding party stayed here also. Marriott, the hotel and restaurant, did an excellent job.

My only regret was that I did not bring my swimming suit for the hot tub. There is also an indoor pool. The gym is nicely outfitted so I could work off some of the calories I consumed. You can jog or walk along the Riverwalk or use one of the many indoor track machines too. This is an easy town to learn.

Easy in/out parking is $7.00 daily. This is the place I will stay when I am in Augusta again.

We stayed at this hotel 7 years ago and it was great. We had an opportunity to stay again, and it is starting to show it's age a bit. The room did not appear to have been updated at all. The bathroom had wallpaper that was starting to peel away, there was a lot of caulk repairs around the bathtub, the sink didn't turn off good and the carpet was stained and dirty.
They charge for extras like decent internet access and parking.
Honestly, I think a nicer room could be found for half the price at a newer Holiday Inn.
I would have to skip this next time I am in Augusta.

The hotel was beautiful had a great lobby and was adjacent to the convention center. The rooms were cozy and warn. The bathroom was acceptable. As you can see from my other reviews of brand flagship hotels I am just not sure they are worth the money for me as a business traveller. Rooms are expensive, everything is extra including parking. It is really more than I need. But if you are on vacation or going to a convention this is the lace to stay and see Augusta. Staff was great and it was a nice stay.

The high star reviews here confuse me. I stayed two nights and never saw a single impressive thing. To the contrary, this hotel seems to be a bit of a dump to me... And I easily spend over half the nights of the year in hotels.

Check-in, the front counter guy neglected to tell us we were staying in the "suites " side of the hotel, which is a good 5+ minute walk from the main hotel. This is a huge annoyance when you're dragging your bags behind you. I fully expected to find the promised "suite" a closet, but can, at least, report that the room was a decent size. Separate living room and bedroom with a small fridge and microwave... Yes, it was suite-like.

The state of the room though, GROSS. The carpet had stuff all over it, like it had barely been vacuumed since the previous guest. Two or three spots had huge piles of spending crumbled on them. Not sure what it was, but let's just say I didn't take off my socks. The bathroom was disgusting, an AWFUL smelling tub and stray hairs that were definitely not mine on the floor. (One of the good things about being blonde... You usually don't see your own hair, until your vacuum at home sucks it up and it's in the filter :-))

I'm staying here for work, praying that they won't continue booking this establishment. Not looking forward to any future stays here.

Right off Broad Street and twice feeding me upgrades... I can dig it.

It's really all about location for this megaplex in the Marriott family. Conference goers stay here (their conference is like in the convention center), biz travelers stay here (the rates are reasonable), families stay here (it's in the heart of downtown), airline personnel stay here (the free shuttle to/from the airport). And I stay here (all of the above).

What it lacks in small inn charm, or regional homage to sport, culture and history,  the Marriott makes up for with comfortable beds, cordial staff and moderately priced, highly palatable steak sandwiches delivered to your room. Solid toiletries, too.

OH how I wanted to give this place more than 3 stars.....BUT, a HARD BED and waking up with a sore back just doesn't make up for the other outstanding features of this hotel.

The Pluses: GREAT Staff, like at every Marriott. Always pleasant, courteous, helpful and available. Marriott trains their personnel VERY, VERY well and it shows. The Valet/Bell Hops were particularly nice here.

Gave some free homemade cookies every night. Very nice.

Attached to Augustino's Restaurant.....a GREAT restaurant (see my review of that place). Excellent quality food....yes it's NOT CHEAP. But the quality is good, and they were open on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and evening. Thankfully I was able to eat a good meal on Christmas Night after a not so great experience at Buca de Beppo.

LOCATION. Right in the heart of the Riverwalk and the "wanting to thrive" downtown area. Ever since I moved to Augusta in the late 80's, Augusta has TRIED (mostly unsuccessfully) to revitalize downtown. I THINK they're learning that the not-so-secret-secret is to get people to MOVE downtown. It's worked in many other cities, namely my hometown of Chicago and current city of Charlotte. Simple formula - people move in and so do businesses.

The Meh - Price. Not cheap (for Augusta) at $135/night. Thankfully I'm a Marriott Gold Reward Member so I got one night free to dull the pain.

The room, although a "suite," was nice, it was a little dated and the bathroom could have used a minor upgrade.

And the #1 reason, again, for giving this property only 3 Stars - THE BED! Somewhere in there concrete complete with Rebar was sandwiched in between the mattresses....GAWD. One of the biggest reasons I am loyal to Marriott IS THE QUALITY of their BEDS! Normally soft and I rarely ever wake up with a sore back. This bed gave me two very bad bachaches. I did write this same review on the Marriott website AND told the Hotel Manager so hopefully they'll do something about it. Maybe I simply got a bum bed.......Again, I've NEVER had a backache at any Marriott that I've stayed at around the world.

3 Stars does seem so unfair to me because this really IS A NICE HOTEL with a superb staff, great location and an adjacent excellent restaurant. But I can't get over the whole hard bed thing. Hey, there's a first for everything.

I'd still recommend this place but check out the bed first and if the bed's hard ask for another room. I should have done that!

If you here for a conference, it's likely a four star place due to amenities and local attractions within walking distance.  However, if you are a 1-2 night business traveler, you may be better suited to look elsewhere.  

Upon checking in, you literally have to walk the length of two football fields to get across the convention center to your suite.  Make note of this if you have a lot of luggage.  

Additionally, the business center is not operated by the hotel and they charge per minute for internet access and $1.50 per black and white page.  No consideration given to Gold Marriott members.  If you need anything printed, pony up or drive to a Fed-Ex Kinkos.

Absolute beautiful property seated right on the canal. Two blocks from all that Broad St has to offer.
Extremely friendly staff and also very accommodating!  

Special shout out to Theron and Samantha from Augustinos (hotel bar/restaurant), and Art from the event team!
