This was my 2nd stay at this property...(I am a long-time Marriott rewards customer). Was THRILLED with the Fairfield side of this hotel 2 years ago...no complaints AT ALL. This time, I got a GREAT rate for Courtyard side so I gave that a try. Love this property's location, design, ease of parking, pool area, lobbies, etc. Very classy looking place. Hop right on the freeway to get ANYwhere. Great Mall = Shopping right next door! Check in was somewhat easy, the clerk informed me I had a "great rate" but when I asked about possibly getting a 3rd night at another "great rate" ... he completely ignored me, TWICE. Ok...nothing like making me feel welcome! Then I asked if my room would have a microwave. He said that some rooms did, some didn't...he said If I got a room without, he'd send one up (Hmmmm.... why not just give me a room WITH one?) So ... off I went to my room. (Note that the Hotel was NOT full at all this weekend). I arrived to find No Microwave. So... I called the front desk right away and (thankfully) got an answer...he said he'd send one up. And so I waited. and waited. and waited. And went for a walk to get ice. To find out that there is only 1 ice machine per floor, and my floor, and the next floor and the one below it, ALL WERE WITHOUT ice!! Finally found one on the 6th floor!! Returned to room, still no microwave. Got ready for my event, still no microwave. Finally left, hoping it would be delivered in my absence. It was in the room, on the desk, when I arrived after 9pm... I looked inside... OMG..it was FILTHY with exploded food parts!! I was disgusted!! I tried calling the front desk. No Answer....(Several times....no Answer). I took out the glass turntable (most dirtiest part) and wiped out the rest so I could use the thing. (I need it to heat a heating pad, not for food). I left the filthy glass part on the desk with a note for the maid. The next day, the dirty glass turntable was completely GONE (microwave remained, with the inside STILL FILTHY!). Really?? Who does that? I was too busy on this trip to deal with stuff like this. Also, I will add that the towels in the bath were very worn looking and there were tiles missing from the flooring/baseboard. The pool area was unkempt and scattered furniture/towels everywhere. SO not Marriott-style. SO disappointing! Maybe I got the great rate for a bargain-basement run-down room? Or, maybe..because it was Easter weekend and staff was shorthand. I was asked at checkout about my stay and I mentioned the microwave incident. Apologies and promises of more points to my account. Hmmm. Turned out ...just empty promises. Email received after my stay, again I asked for them to make it right. Still waiting... C'mon Marriott. Really? Hilton's starting to look better and better.
