This is a first for me. I'm writing this review while in the hotel room as to not forget one detail. We are on a college road trip and have been in 5 different hotels in the past 6 days. I don't have very high expectations for these types of hotels as you will see from my previous reviews, I don't stay in these types of hotels long term. However, I don't expect the room to smell like body odor! We first got a room on the 5th floor by the elevator and when we opened the door we got slapped in the face with the smell. We quickly ran to the lobby to ask for a switch and we were accommodated without a problem. It was almost as if he heard the complaint many times before. We were given a room on the 3rd floor and opened the door and although the smell wasn't as horrific, it is still really bad. We went online to try to get another hotel in the area, but didn't have success and were very travel weary at this point. We went to a nearby CVS and purchased a spray deordorizer and sprayed the entire room. I don't believe the smell exists from the room being dirty because it is not. I honestly believe it comes from something in the material they used to build the room. It seems to be strongest by the wood between the beds and on the headboard. The design of the rooms are modern but not efficient as the bathroom and shower doors are opaque glass and not solid doors so if someone uses the bathroom in the middle of the night, it could wake everyone. The thermostat in our room was mediocre at best and the shower/vanity area is very dimly lit which make it very difficult to put on your makeup. Overall, I would very strongly recommend you bypass this one. My husband is an elite member of Marriott and we usually choose them first. This smell is unbearable. In fact, I'm signing off because it's time to spray again....
