I prefer soft jazz, but a great location and talented musicians. The hotel could hire more waiters, and serve better food, but a fun night.

Best of the three I went to this summer.Judy Roberts and crew were great...concert just right length (over at 8:45). Service by wait staff better/quicker than before-food good but nothing special but reasonably priced ($14 burger)

The band was okay. Food and drink were over priced. Ten dollars to park. Ridiculous.

The event was very nice for some slow jazz. The food was good at the Mariott.

This venue is so much better than the Hyatt! And the John Pizzarelli quartet was fabulous. Great musicians all and John's patter was very amusing. An attentive audience as well which made the whole evening a joy.

Ernie was fabulous, as always. A wonderful stylist. Backup great, especially Richie Cole. Though I had adequate food/beverage service, lots of complaints from others. Marriot needs to tighten up the serve staff.

If you like jazz, you'll love the music here. The venue is beautiful, and the sound is excellent. The food selection is limited and the service can be a bit spotty,... continued

Loved the music and the ambiance! Did not order food. But the wine was fine. Nice way to enjoy these warm summer nights away from the norm.

Save your $10 self-park money and park on the street across the hotel. Only a short walk. Spend those saved dollars on more libations during the show. The outdoor... continued
