Reviews are mixed with no lack of something to talk both positive and negative about.  Marsala is an excellent choice, but I am partial to this color family.  I love the richness of the tone and the decorative possibilities the color offers.  My immediate thought upon learning of Pantone’s selection was how beautiful Marsala would fit in with holiday decorating,  a Victorian meets art deco meets historical elegance color of sorts. The decked to the halls holiday decorations at The Roosevelt New Orleans “exhibits” all of the above and more.
