Pro's: It's a Marriot, and the wedding reception was good.
Con's: Serious Updates Needed. Bar Closed Early For Wedding???
We stayed at this Marriot because we were attending a wedding in the area, and this is where close to 100 of us were going to stay. My brother-in-law made the reservation as he travels a lot for the Coast Guard and was able to make a discounted reservation for a room for us.
I felt the room (King Bed, and a little hard for my taste) was adequate for a quick stay but it seemed older and used. The pool area was nice, although the attached bar and grill closed early and we were at a wedding, so why was it closing ahead of time by 20-30 minutes? During the wedding reception, the bar was removed early (it was in a separate area where we had a cocktail party, but right next to the reception) and then brought back again when we complained.
The elevator out at the pool was the slowest I had ever seen. Someone needs to look into this.
The wedding reception was at the hotel as well as the "morning after" breakfast. These were two things that were done extremely well by the hotel. We had a hell of a good time as we danced and drank the night away (a requirement at any good NY transplanted to Florida Italian Wedding). The morning after the food was excellent as was the service. Only complaint is the above bar issue.
The doorman who helped me with my bags while leaving mistook my wife for my daughter when we were leaving, which I thought was humorous, but which he felt embarrassed about. When he apologized to me, he hugged me and said he was sorry. I thought it was a nice gesture. Luckily, I'm a huggy kind of guy.
Restaurant was overpriced. I heard their pizza was awful. I preferred Denny's a few miles away and across from a Starbucks.
Price paid $119 a night with discount. There are probably better options in the area.
