“Very nice stay; breakfast just okay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

A very fine Marriott. They are me preferred brand because of their service, well appointed rooms and overall reliability and consistency. This Marriott did not disappoint. Friendly, very service oriented, rooms were well up to date, wonderful beds, good wi-fi. We (wife and kids) enjoyed the small but nice pool and jacuzzi. Nicely heated so you can see a few feet of snow piled around the pool atrium while having a summer-like pool experience :) The "Marriott Burgers" from room service were a hit.

A nit which dropped it from 5-stars: The breakfast buffet ($15 adults, $9 kids) has a decent selection but not great for the price. The food itself was good but not as tasty as I'd hoped. My son had the Eggs Benedict off the menu. It was competently done but lacked zest (a little more lemon or seasoning). The hash fries were greasy. It was an okay meal but I expect a little more from Marriott and those prices.

Ideal location for visiting Salem & Boston.

Rooms were comfortable but as expected when part of a chain of hotels, not much character.

Hotel dining was good value and I would recommend the fish and chips.

As it’s not far from the freeway there are many business people using this hotel but it’s still suitable for tourists too.

Wife, kids and I stayed at this Hotel last week, and were greeted by a very embarassing set of issues...It appears that they had some sore of Crossdressers convention there, late last week....somehow I would have expected someone at the front desk explaining that to us when we checked in, knowing that we had our 2 teenage children with us...But, no, they did not do that! so for 4 days we were subjected to seeing all sorts of men in drag wandering throughout! Taking over the bar area, and forcing us to have brakfast with them..My wife and I were mortified! The children we embarrassed to tears at times, and forced us to explain things that we should not have had to do...Nightime ws bad, as these rowdy individuals, unleashed after a few drinks, and roamed the hallways, with free and open expressions of ove for one another...At 2 am on of the nights I had to call front desk to explain that 2 men in drag were making love in the hallway across from our room....The management should be chastised by Marriott Corporate for allowing this sort of activity to go on, in plain view of everone, including children..Why they even took over the main floor ladies room for their own use.... Gawd...

Room Tip: use another hotel in the area

Biggest complaint: Badly placed soap dish in shower to hit head on.
Biggest compliment: Comfortable inside, and easy to check in and out, park, locate, etc.

The lobby is spacious and amenities well situated. Restaurant is good enough, if mildly overpriced. Rooms are quite nice and clean, definitely quiet enough as well.

Really excellent value and conveniently located.

We've stayed here a few times when visiting friends close by. Each time, we are very happy with our choice. The prices are decent, the rooms are nice sized and very comfortable and very clean. A lot of channels on TV, and free internet, The restaurant/bar was very nice, each time we have breakfast in the AM and hang out at the bar in the evening.

The staff was very helpful, helping us book whale watching trips and other activities, as well as giving directions (found out we had been taking the really long way to get somewhere, and they gave us directions that cut down our travel time in half!).

Definitely will be staying here our next visit.

I loved this hotel. So pretty and very clean. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've experienced in all hotels I've ever stayed in. Want to go back just for the bed!!! Location wasn't too impressive but hotel made up for that. A little expensive for our stay. Breakfast was a nice buffet. Staff was friendly.

I was at the Peabody, MA full service Marriott on business. A good night's sleep. A fast check in. All my preset room preferences were honored. The Executive Lounge had a nice pasta offering making for a light supper. Then out came dessert. Pumpkin cheesecake. Nice. THe decor is a bit dated, yet the sheets were clean and soft. Fluffy pillows. That's what mattered most.

Room Tip: Ask for the executive floor is a member of the Marriott Reward's Program. 6th floor.
