Pleasant enough hotel, good sized rooms, quick in room services. Bar restaurant a little lifeless. Was annoying to pay for parking when there are some many free parking spots close by- next time will use them...plus $12 or so a day for wi fi in room- why?

From the moment you walk in and are greeted (maybe even by the GM Brian) to the amazingly warm and friendly guest staff everywhere (inside and out), you know you're "at home" in this Marriott -- for as long as you want to be! And when you couple this ambience with the AMAZING cuisine of this Marriott's restaurant "Arterra", you... More

Good rooms, efficient and quiet air con, better than normal beds, excellent pool, gym and exec lounge etc. Even though very close to some major roads it's quiet in the rooms as they have double glazing (why is this not the case in all Marriott's). However the topping factor is the amazingly good team on the flaunt desk. Way better... More

Reserved 2 double bed rooms with 7 of us and a 75yr old mother in-law. When we arrived we were informed there wasn't anymore double bed rooms due to a soccer tournament. Soccer tournaments are booked well in advance and the fact that double bed rooms were likely not available would have been known well in advance. This should be... More

Thank you very much for the survey on Tripadvisor. I will pass on your remarks to Ricardo. He is a little shy about compliments. I am very proud of our staff and the manner in which they work hard to meet our guest expectations. Thank you again for the kind note. I hope to meet you on your next stay... More

Great hotel, really friendly and helpful staff. Easy on and off of I-5, close to good restaurants. Centrally located in SD County, so if you need to be downtown, or in Carlsbad, its a fairly quick shot. Only gripe is that it seems the US Marriott's lag far behind in their Executive Lounges in the food and beverage area .... More

Let's get right to it. The room was quite comfortable. Outlets on the night stand for a cell phone charge within easy reach. Bed and pillows were extremely comfortable for a good, good sleep. Roomy bathroom with a unique feature: door opened out, not into the bathroom, like most hotels, where the door often can't clear towels on the floor... More

Stayed at the Marriott Del Mar for a business and vacation combo. Of note was the over the top attitude and service from the Arterra staff. Tracey, the supervisor for the restaurant stopped by the table and checked that we were happy. She relayed that we had a waitress that night flying solo for the first time, but was confident... More

Overall my husband and I had a very nice stay at the Marriott Del Mar. As we pulled up our first reaction was to think we were out of our league with all of the expensive vehicles parked out front. The hotel itself is very nice although there is a lot of noise between the room and the hallway. Unlike... More
