I'm astounded by the very positive reviews and awards this hotel got. We usually stay at Marriotts for business purposes, we've been to quite a few of them in the US and this one was... awful. I had to check to be sure it really was a Marriott because it looked more like some rock bottom cut rate budget motel.
It was dirty, dated, sagging mattresses, awful kitchen closet, tiny bathroom but HUGE closet. The free breakfast was absolutely inedible. This was not my usual Marriott experience and I can only hope we never have to come back. Yes, it's close to McGill...but that is about it, it has nothing else to recommend it.
If you have allergies to anything - beware the overpowering chemicals/air freshener used here - it's enough to knock you out and make your eyes water. And gave me a headache after a while.
They were willing to find us a better room - but we were tired from traveling and needed to get work before morning and so declined.
In fact, why wouldn't they give us a good room to begin with? We have some kind of loyalty card with them, gold or elite membership. I would have thought they'd give us a 'better' room as a matter of course. I guess membership isn't what it used to be.
