I have been traveling to this hotel regularly for two years due to its convenient location. It has always been decent, but recently the hotel was renovated and looks beautiful! In addition, I should note that the staff here are some of the best Marriott staff I've come across.

Do you carry BBC America?
Sorry, I cannot answer that question. In that area, Time-Warner cable does carry BBC, but I do not know if that is available at the hotel.
