Directions given by Google took is to the back of the hotel. LOL..had to turn around and find the entrance. Two choices, Valet or self park. Did not see a place to park and check in before deciding. Went to self park. Nice ambiance. Check in was OK..but the person at the front desk did not mention anything about what... More

This newly renovated Marriott is Real Nice.. Has all you need and the service was a 10 from the time you pull in their drive! If there was a negative it had to be the $20 a night parking fee and $13 wireless internet charges. May be common in that area, but I'm not used to paying that in the... More

The Del Mar Marriott is recently renovated and is clearly the best hotel in the Del Mar Heights business corridor area, with its many law firms and biotech businesses. The freeway convenient location is its primary asset, although the rooms are nice. Annoyingly the restaurant is not open every night of the week, so dining in the hotel can be... More

I love staying at Marriott hotels! They never cease to amaze me with their top notch service, beautiful hotels, and an all around pleasant experience. We stayed 2 nights so we could take in a Padres game Friday night and go to the Del Mar fair Saturday. The hotel is right off the freeway and fairly close to the fair... More

The hotel is located right off the 5, which makes for easy access to San Diego and beaches. The room as standard, and cozy. I asked for an upper floor with a "view", and being a Marriott Rewards Gold member, thought maybe the view would be nice. Nope, parking lot. Ooh well, not a big deal for 1 night. It... More

Just got back from a two night's stay at the Marriott, and I am pleased to say that I had a wonderful experience. The front desk people were friendly and the valet acknowledged us every time we went to the garage. The room is spotless and well appointed. Unfortunate the weekend was cool and cloudy so we did not take... More

I've stayed here twice because it is local to the business I visit nearby. I did not have a car so I can give the perspective of a walker in the area. The hotel is around $60 taxi ride from the airport. I walked up to Vons (10 mins) for a few supplies and there are a couple places to... More

While I usually select the Courtyard Solana Beach, the Marriott Del Mar offered a lower rate. The hotel is located in a corporate area. There are several excellent dining options within one mile or a 20-minute walk. The room was typical Marriott. The air conditioning unit was notably loud and ineffective. I woke up both nights feeling like I was... More

The last two times I've been to San Diego, I stayed at the La Jolla Marriott. I will now stay at this property instead. The rooms are nicely remodeled with new carpet, bedding, TV, and other furnishings. The Concierge Lounge was beautiful, well-stocked, and with friendly attendants. The homemade cookies and milk at bedtime were a nice touch as well!... More
