I have stayed at several hotels by Marriott and am typically satisfied with the service. I must say that this was one of the best locations I have had the opportunity of staying at. The service was great. The hotel was clean. The customer service was superior. There were several groups that stayed a the hotel, which is expected during the summer. One group in particular was a bit unruly and made hotel guests uncomfortable with heavy public drinking, loud music for the entire weekend in the lobby and pool area. The group almost made it impossible for other groups to enjoy their visits because at one point they blocked most of the pool area off and prevented other hotel guests from comfortably enjoying the beautiful pool and jacuzzi. To help the situation, the hotel staff did have to step in, and that was greatly appreciated. Once the hotel management stepped in, I must say that my stay improved 100%.
The breakfast each morning is delicious. They offer pancakes, waffles, some of the best eggs I've tasted in a while, fresh fruit, and several othe options. The breakfast was far greater than what I would have expected. The rooms were well maintained. I had the pleasure of using the wash room and was satisfied with that experience as well. The overall stay, staff, hotel, and service was great. Also, the hotel is located in front of a great outdoor mall that has a movie theater attached. There is a grocery store and a Target across the street. Restaurants are next door. Pretty much everything you need is in close proximity to the hotel without having to get on the highway or travel far. In the past, I have blogged about hotels and I must say that the service, cleanliness, and overall experience is close to that of the 5 star hotels I have stayed at in the past. Also, the hotel is about 40-45 mins from Disney World and probably 30 from Tampa which is not too bad, especially if other hotels are booked up. It's a nice getaway. Thank you for the experience!!!!
