Outstanding plae for a family gathering
My grand-daughter celebrated her Bat Mitzvah in your ballroom and 50 of our guests stayed at NCED. The service was outstanding - every need attended to; the facilities were great and kept our children of all ages busy while we were there. The food at the banquet was delicious and the choices and quality of the food at breakfast matched the finest restaurant. Lastly, the co-operation and help to my daughter, Stephanie McGinnis was excellent, accommodating all our requests and needs.
I Did Not Want the Experience to End!
My 2 week stay at the Marriott National Center for Employee Development (NCED) Conference Center and Hotel was awesome! My stay opened the door for me to experience, for the first time, a dedicated focus on my complete wellness. The Marriott hotel in Norman Oklahoma is the only Marriott in the U.S. of its kind offering a full holistic fitness regimen for guests. While my husband was in class from 7:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. every day, I participated in a wide range of sessions including Meditation, Dance Cardio, Yoga, Weight Training, Foam Roll Stretching, Power Walking, Ballet, Line Dancing, African Drumming, Contra Dancing, and would you believe even more? Programs are offered for any guests between 10:00a.m. to 7:30p.m., or at late as 9:30p.m. on certain days if you are up for a good movie at the facility. For me, it was truly awesome to view a weekly schedule and create a personal fitness program from a wide range of choices on any given day! The Fitness staff, lead by Director, Jody Watson, was impressively educated and skilled at their craft. Betsy, Christina, Grace, Scott, and Jackson are just a few of the exceptional talent at the Fitness Center who answered my many questions and guided me through each session educating me along every step of the process. I was truly sad to leave because I did not want the very meaningful experience to end, and I did not have the confidence that I could provide such a thorough program for myself after returning home. However, each Instructor encouraged, empowered, and inspired me to practice the tools I learned as I continue to work toward better fitness. I've always been a fan of The Marriott food franchise and the food choices available at this facility was no exception. The food was delectable and often times a little dangerous for a girl like me and for a husband like mine. At least the cafeteria offered a selection of choices for the health conscious and maybe not so health conscious. The Health and Fit section for was my favorite section. And, a big shout out to Alisha Cherry and others who so graciously made a fruit smoothie for me almost every morning. I viewed this act as exceptional customer service since fruit smoothies are not included on the daily menu. Instead, it was a special request I made one day. And to my surprise, Alisha extended the offer to make a smoothie for me every day if I so desired, and I desired. Finally, Housekeeping was very accommodating. DeDe Hawkins' friendly staff exhibited so much respect for my privacy, property, and my schedule. Again, our overall customer experience (from those mentioned above to the front desk, shuttle bus drivers, etc.) at this Marriott was amazing! My husband and I are true fans. I made him promise to never go on another training session without me. Please make the Norman Oklahoma Marriott NCED Conference Center your choice whenever you are in the area. I am convinced you will be as thrilled as we were.
Best Kept Secret in Oklahoma
We have stayed at NCED multiple times since our daughter started at OU. I heard about it through word of mouth, but since my wife is extremely touchy about hotels and cleanliness, I decided to check it out first. The staff allowed me a tour of the facility, including the rooms. I was extremely impressed, but I knew my wife, so on the solo visit I take there once a year I stayed. Loved it! now all three of us will not stay any where else. It's not just the rooms, but the food, gym, computer center, pool/badminton/table shuffle area, the workout areas, and the beautiful and comfortable common areas. Postal workers....you've had it good for so long. Now some of the rest of us get to enjoy.
Second to None
I have traveled extensively throughout the United States. I have stayed in many different hotel chains and inns. I was very impressed at how thoroughly this hotel managed to accomodated every possible need I could have. From the gourmet food to the activities and the beauty inside and on the grounds.....excellent!
I had an eye emergency on the last day of my stay. I was scheduled to fly out that afternoon and it would have been a uncomfortable flight and drive home had I not been helped. I made an appointment with an eye doctor and Dustin gave me a ride in his personal vehicle ensuring I made my appointment. The ride was unsolicited, Dustin simply wanted to help. So this is a word of thanks and a note to let you all know I enjoyed my stay during my class.
