It's a bit difficult to write this review. I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights to attend a convention, and Marriott got just about everything right. Check-in was quick and cheerful. My room was spacious and had a nice balcony. The bathroom was spotless and in pristine shape - no cracks in the tile, a perfect shower curtain. Rugs were spotless. I had a pretty view of the bay. Air conditioning was responsive. The hotel also has an outstanding fitness center.
I had a room with two double beds, and when I laid down the first night, I was stunned - the bed was completely broken down and wobbly. Every time I turned over, it wobbled and squeaked. It was much too soft. I actually don't mind a soft bed, but this one just seemed to be well past its prime. By this time, it was late and I had already unpacked, so I didn't request another room.
The second night I tried the other bed, which was better, but barely. What happened? My college dorm room bed in 1984 was better than this.
I have to take two stars off of this review for that very basic issue.
More forgivable issues: The bathroom wasn't terribly well-appointed. I've gotten used to things like q-tips and cotton balls being provided. The bath towels were small. These were minor issues and, with a comfortable bed, I would have rated this stay 5 stars.
