My parents-in-law have been at The Marquette for just over one month now. So far, it's been very nice. They have their own private patio and three meals a day. They don't have to let them know if they're going to have guests, and guests are welcome to have meals with them. They have 24-hour emergency care available. Everybody we've met has been friendly, and pets can visit. They have entertainment two to three times a week, and they will arrange doctor's appointment rides for them back and forth. They do some outings that they can sign up to do. The grounds are very nicely kept and you can walk around the building in a garden setting. The room is large and there are snacks available in between meals. As far as senior living costs go, I think it's reasonable compared to others. You get the value for your money. When assistance is needed from the staff, the interaction is positive with me, my in-laws, and my wife. They both have the alert systems so they can just press the button on the necklaces if they need assistance. That comes with being a resident there. So far, I'm very happy with it. The meals I have partaken in have been delicious. I think the place is beautiful and I love it. If I were qualified I'd live there.

Mom's room at The Marquette is very bright and spacious. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The food is good, too. The dining area is bright and welcoming. They have a patio with chairs and rocking chairs.

We chose The Marquette because I like the entertainment that they offer to their residents. The building is very open and based on a cruise ship where the whole center of the building is open with the apartments along the outside. The staff is very good except for the chef because the food is terrible. They don’t listen to the residents, and I think that is just the way it is. For activities, they have an area with gym equipment, a little library area, movie room, pool table, and beautiful garden area.
