Was here for a convention end of February. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate and it was overcast and chilly for February. The hotel room was nice but by Marriott standards I've been in better. Elevators took a long time to get to the lobby or your floor. What I didn't like was the fact that every restaurant bill (including the bar) automatically added a 18% tip even for 1 person. The first time when I ordered a salad by the pool I didn't know there was automatic tip included and the waitress gave me the copy to sign while holding the itemized receipt (it was breezy) so needless to say I added a 18% tip on top of the automatic tip. The breakfast buffet was $28 plus they included an 18% tip and taxes so final bill was $36. The waitress only cleared away the table.
There was a separate pool for adults which was nice. It was quiet and you didn't have to contend with kids screaming and running around. The beach was ok but it seems, like most of the Atlantic coast, the beach had eroded due to all the hurricanes and there really wasn't a big beachfront.
As respects the convention, the meeting rooms were big, the beverages and buffet meals served had variety and were pretty good. We had a cocktail party outside one night and the food was very good. Big issue with conventions is everyone goes out to eat at night and there are no taxis available. Had to wait 45 minutes to get a cab. So be forewarned if you are at a large convention.
Exercise room had plenty of treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, circuit training machines, free weights and balls & mats. Fairly nice size. They offered exercised classes in the morning at evening. Took a spinning class one night was the only one there so the instructor worked with me as I was a novice. That was nice.
I had a really nice maid for all the days I was there. She did an outstanding job cleaning the room plus whenever she saw me she would say hello and ask how my day was. If I was back in my room for an hour or so, she'd go work in another room as to not bother me. Very considerate. She deserved the room tip I left her every day.
