I had to write about our experience, especially after reading some of the other reviews. When we went to check in, we found out that there were "teams" staying at the hotel. Big mistake. My personal opinion is that when they have teams booked, they should let the "non-team" guests know in advance. So, we are told there have been no problems with the young men, and our room is in a quiet ,out-of-the-way spot, and this hotel is known for how quiet it is. We get off the elevator and our room is directly across from the elevator. The room smelled musty and was in need of some upkeep and repairs including banged walls, a dirty microwave and coffee grinds spilled all over the desk. We had requested two queen beds and got a "suite" which meant we had to make up a sofa bed. The bathtub base was stained and towels were very thin. Around 10:00 p.m., as we were ready to settle for the night, the running in the halls, banging on doors and shouting began. I have zero tolerance, so I immediately phoned the front desk. The noise died down, but only temporarily. We were also "delighted" to find out our room was directly over the pool so until 11:00 all we could hear were screams and shouts of enjoyment from whoever was using the pool. Needless to say, we were very tired but at 4:30 a.m. someone starting banging on doors, on our floor, to wake up other people.
The continental breakfast would have been much more pleasurable if the adults with the "team" members would have had the decency to give up their tables so those of us who wanted to eat could have, instead of just sitting around shooting the breeze. When we checked out, I was very frank about our experience, and let them know I would not return. We have stayed in numerous Marriotts over the years, and recognize that some of the problems we encountered were not directly the responsibility of the hotel, but in the future, I will pay a little bit more money and ask a lot more questions when I am booking.
