I stayed 3 nights for business with nearby Embry Riddle University. The hotel is located 5 minutes from the airport and the shuttle runs on-demand 24 hrs. Due to the Atlanta snowstorm, my flight into Daytona didn't arrive until 3:00 am so I was grateful for the quick van service. The University is walking distance. (Others in my group reported that they had arranged for the hotel van to drop them off.). Friendly employees thru-out the stay.
Other than the front desk, entrances require a key card to get in, 24 hours a day, so that is good security-wise. I also appreciated the front desk clerk at check in handing me my key packet without that dreaded verbal announcement of my room number - there was a crowd of people checking in and that is always an uncomfortable feeling to have your room number shouted out to strangers. Thank you for writing it on the key packet and saying -" here is your room number, take the hallway to the left. "
Wifi signal (free) was strong and reliable. See quibble below.
Room was clean, amenities in place, and no neighbor noise- quiet.
Got a take-out sandwich combo from the lobby cafe and it was good.
My only quibble about the stay is not about the hotel itself: it is the Marriott "corporate" wifi selection screen.
To be clear, as above, the free wifi service was great. Marriott also offers an upgrade to faster service for an extra $4.95 per day. When you go to the free wifi log in screen to enter your name and room number, you are presented with both alternatives. When you select "free", the next screen appears that says " confirm you want upgraded wifi for 4.95 per day" with a large font and large button. Below, a very tiny type and button says, " no, just go to the free wifi". An unsuspecting person, or a person in a hurry, who intends to get the free ( very adequate) wifi can unintentionally click to confirm what is probably then automatically, instantly, charged to their room.
As straightforward as everything else seems to be about this chain, and with this particular hotel, this attempted little "trap" seems cheesy. I hope whoever from Marriott corporate reads this, that you will take it to heart and review the policy. Its like me ordering the tuna sandwich at the lobby bistro, and the cashier saying, "ok, confirm that you want the filet mignon?" And then I have to say, "no, just the tuna sandwich, please." It just does not make sense and it creates a bit of badwill....when everything else about the chain is so good.
