We spent 5 nights in this Hotel using our Marriott Reward points. On checking in we were offered an upgrade to a room overlooking the Harbour but at a cost of $A 30 per night. I said that as an owner of two weeks in Son Antem Mallorca I would have expected this upgrade for free. I was told that if I had Gold Status then we would have been upgraded for free. As I am retired and do not spend time travelling around the UK and Europe I have no opportunity to use Marriott Hotels but I pay maintenance charges for my time share each year of approx £1400. Unfortunately this counts for nothing whereas I feel that as a loyal member of the Marriott family by virtue of my timeshare ownership this would have been recognised as warranting an upgrade when available.
No criticism of the Hotel as it is very comfortable but due to the strong Aussie dollar the food and drink was expensive.
