“Big Mistake”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2006

After a long flight across country and securing our rental car, we were relieved to finally arrive at the Key Bridge Marriott. When we tried to check into our room we were told that all they had was a room with 2 double beds instead of the King we had reserved. We asked that they move us when one was available but that never happened. The rooms are so small that with two beds, you could hardly walk around.

We opened the curtains to find that we were overlooking the pool. When we looked outside in the morning we found that the pool had been drained. There were no tables or chairs to sit on outside and the painting crews became our view.

At $299/night we were looking for something a whole lot better than this.

Aside from looking like a run down hospital on the outside, we checked in to find a dead roach in the bathroom sink, no toilet paper, a room with 1 bed when we had requested 2 beds MONTHS in advance, and a general manager who seemed to not care when these things were brought to her attention.

I loved this hotel. From the professional and quick check-in to the tremendous views from our room the Marriott at Key Bridge excelled. The location is excellent in that you can easily walk across the Key Bridge and be in Georgetown. The person who checked us in was very competent and pleasant and was kind enough to give us two parking passes. There is a fee for parking, but fortunately our son who visited us didn't have to pay. I would definitely return.
