As gold Marriott customers, we love the Marriott brand. Stayed the weekend of 8/8 with 2 other couples. Upon check in, clerk confirmed our "feather-free" room (due to allergies). Unfortunately, upon entering the room, it was not "feather free". It took 2 calls and over 30 minutes to get someone to our room with correct pillows. The following day, we... More

As I travel 75-80% of the year for business, and I have a choice as to which airlines, hotels, restaurants and rental car companies I select on weekly basis, I am not often moved to write a personal review as I have come to expect a certain level of service from within the hospitality & travel industry.

Were here for the Surf Cup with 14 year old girls. Everyone at the hotel was very accomodating to the girls and their families. The staff could not have been better and the hotel restaurant, bar and pool are great. I would hight recommend this hotel for groups and families.

Dear DomerDad, I hope you had a very successful tournament. I used to travel with my girls for sports; I know how important a good hotel is for the spirit of the competition. I am glad the family had a great time. See you next year for Surf Cup 2015! More

Stayed here with a family group of 9. One the the best hotels I have stayed in. Great pools/ Excellent service. Quite. Shuttle service to beach, some 20 mins away.

Dear 5Starholiday, We love being called a 5 star hotel. The staff clapped and cheered when I read your review to the morning stand up meeting. I also passed along the thought of being a little more flexible on the timing of the shuttle. Something for us to be more conscience of when picking guest back up. You mentioned the... More

We spent the weekend here with friends. This is a nice family and business hotel. It is located close to the I5 and about ½ hour from downtown San Diego and 15 minutes to Mission Bay or La Jolla.

Stayed at this hotel based on local coworker recommendations. Nice location for access... but in the middle of suburbia and they charge $20/day to park?!?! WiFi was also a charge item. When the room was as high priced as it was, these extra daily charges are excessive. Room was clean and average, nothing stunning. Nice pool deck for hanging out,... More

We stayed at the Marriott Del Mar for 4 nights and 5 days. The people are what make the difference. I'm not sure how Marriot got their brand down to their employees but they really believe in customer service. The front desk and the car valet people were calling me by my name which is very special-- I thought I... More

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?

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).
