“Nice place, close to the mall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Nice hotel; they are working on the elevators so it usually takes extra long to get to the lobby from your room. Also, if you have a car, it will cost you $15 to park....wha....???? come on, throw in the parking. $15, really?

It's not a train wreck but she's tired. Nice to have a Starbucks in the lobby but.......the hotel gets an award for the slowest elevators. Rooms are Marriott circa 1990. Not bad but so dated. Shower pressure mimicked a drinking fountain. Not like there is a lot of choice in the area. The doubletree across the street is a total dump. But this property needs a makeover. Wouldn't surprise me to see a new name on the marquis in the future. Just a hunch.

Last weekend we celebrated my daughter's 10th birthday with a 24 hour sleepover at the Marriott. We swam in the pool, did a scavenger hunt, played bingo, etc. The girls had a great time. The hotel made it easy for us to check in early and all the staff was accommodating and extremely friendly and nice. We really enjoyed our time there!

I'd say as good as a Marriott gets. Not a great location for tourists seeking a beach vacation ---- there are several places much closer to Redondo, Hermosa or Manhattan Beach areas. But the hotel itself was great.

I stayed for a few days and really enjoyed my stay. The rooms are clean and spacious and front desk staff is extremely nice. The food was good and room service was excellent. There is also a SBUX in the lobby which is really convenient, and not a proudly brew, but a full on store. The only issue I had were the elevators were SLOOOW. If you are on a tight schedule consider staying on a lower level to take the stairs. I was on the 16 floor, so I did not have that option. The gym is really nice. Fully equipped! The hotel is right across the street from a major mall. Lots of places to eat and shop, and the mall also has a Lucky Strike bowling alley. I walked to the mall quite frequently as it is that close. Blow dryer did not work, but maint brought me up a replacement quickly. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Elevators are slow. Consider staying on a lower level floor if you are on a tight timeline to take s...

This Marriott is not what it used to be. The pictures shown on line are not what it actually looks like. I think long range lens were used to make the pictures look better. For instance the rooms are not that large like shown; unless of course you can afford a suite. The pool area does not look inviting in person. The rooms do not have enough installation; guests bang on walls and floors. The dining room is not available all day. Last I heard they were no longer serving dinner. Even when the dining room is open; it needs to be upgraded. Their prices on the menu are outrageous compared to other nearby restaurants.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and I have found the front desk staff to not be overly helpful or courteous to guests. Also, they now charge for parking which is $15 per day. You are not allowed to park in the surface lot adjacent to Fashion Way. The mall has plenty of parking, however they have signs up that indicate no hotel parking; so you are forced to pay to park in the hotel garage.

The Del Amo Fashion Mall across the street has gone down hill the last several years. The mall needs to be remodeled and no one knows for sure when it is going to happen. They have very limited eating places within the mall except for the food court. The only high end stores they have in the mall is H&M, Forever 21 and Macy's. And there are three Macy's store in that mall.

The per night rate at this Marriott has gone up; it is almost $250 per night. They do have a lot of airline people that do stay at this hotel. Unless you have an expense account, you may want to rethink this. There are other nearby hotels that are not so expensive.

Basically, when you stay here you are paying for the Marriott name. I know quite a bit about this hotel; I have stayed here several times and I live in the area.

We stayed in early September for a wedding and got a discounted price. It is a very nice hotel with a reasonable price for the ammenities. Rooms very nice and clean, the bedding was very good. Staff, specially at the Front Desk were very friendly and helpful.
Location is good, we could be at the beach in about 15 minutes, restaurants were plenty with good variety around it.

Downside is that the elevators were so slow, I think there were only 2 elevators and only one would go to the top floors were we stayed. With so many people at the hotel (Pro Soccer teams, weddings, etc) sometimes it would take 15 minutes to get into the elevator, then it would stop at every floor even if full.

Beware of the bar, a bit overpriced.

Room Tip: Overall a very nice, affordable hotel, centrally located to a lot of ammenities and activites around...
