'Not a big fan of staying corporate' yeah yeah yeah- this was really a terrific place from soup to nuts.
We had been checked in to a 'luxury boutique hotel' down the block. That lasted 45 minutes! We walked across the street to the Marriott, and this on a Friday evening. The sincerity of the check in staff, and their empathetic bemusement at our experience, was heartwarming. We were given a 20th floor room, with an amazing Bay view, and offered an incredibly low rate, almost half that of the 'boutique hotel'. They even threw in a free drink at the bar for us. The room was clean, bright, the bed was second to none, and had all the conveniences and amenities you want and expect at a nice hotel. The staff was courteous wherever we went, from the bar to the lobby. There is a false sincerity that pervades many corporate venues- this was not the case at the Marriott.
