Augusta Marriott at the Convention Center Hotel Review: Entirely smoke-free, the Augusta Marriott offers 372 guest rooms, including 23 ADA-compliant suites, some with roll-in showers. Some of the accommodations, especially the suites (which underwent substantial renovation in 2006) feature lovely views of the area. Additional renovations since have added refrigerators, flat-screen HDTVs (two in every suite) and upgraded soft goods. Plush beds come with Revive bedding in all rooms, and suites also offer pull-out sofas, making them especially good for families. In every space, desks with ergonomic chairs come with the Marriott plug-in package, allowing guests to view their laptops through their televisions. Fitness facilities include indoor/outdoor pools and a whirlpool. Jogging along Augusta's level, paved Riverwalk as it follows the Savannah River is a great way to start the day. Founded in the 18th century, Augusta blends history with a modern outlook. Not to miss are many tourist spots close to the hotel, including the Morris Museum of Art with its amazing collection of work by artists from or living in the South. Pets are welcome, for a $50 fee.
