My family and I went on vacation here for a week! I was a little worried when I saw the old history of the town but after turning into the Marriott I knew I was someplace special. The service was great, the room was gorgeous although we could never regulate the temperature to reflect in the bedrooms. The washer/dryer in the unit makes it so convenient not to be bothered by housekeeping. They provided everything we needed so that we didn't see housekeeping ever! The wait staff brought down extra towels, cleaning supplies and toiletries as needed and we were never bothered by staff, phone calls or annoying bills/receipts underneath our door. We stayed in the Breakers Unit and I couldn't have been happier. The whirlpool tub was wonderful and the separate shower had plenty of room for two! I loved the fact that everything was provided for us.
The fitness room was extremely small! Almost like being inside of a walk in closet! with only 4 walking machines and a few cross training weight equipment I was disappointed with their presentation of a weight room. For all the money that this place appears to exhibit the weight room is a poor example.
The theater room and activities for the kids were okay. The people that they brought in to do the activities rushed the kids through things a little too fast I think. My kids went to the Bocce Ball contest which they fully enjoyed and then went to the post card making. The whole post card activity was over in 15 minutes and the lady was packing up to leave! The other thing I did not enjoy was the ice cream social. It was $4 per person and they only got one scoop of ice cream and a few toppings and that was it!!! For $4 I would have fared better at McDonald's sundaes as the kids were told to pay for 2nd's!!!!
Other than those minor things, you'll fully enjoy yourself and the privacy!
