This is an incredibly average hotel with apparently very little in the way of oversight. First the good; Very good location, large rooms, comfortable bed. Now the bad; The absolute worst valet, bellmen and front of hotel staff I have ever encountered. Ive spent roughly 150 or so nights in hotels over last 5 or so years so that is saying something. Zero help with doors, zero inquiry about bags, an absolute abomination parking vehicles and a completely apathetic demeanor. The front of hotel was hanging out, yelling and laughing like it was a house party while people 20+ are waiting to park or get taxis. Now based on how comfortable they seemed acting like this it has to be normal operating procedure. That means NO OVERSIGHT. Its a shame because its in a very good location across the street from Reading Terminal Market which is a fantastic place to get lunch with 50+ diff options.Not as good as Quincy Market in Boston though. Its also near at least a dozen good restaurants like Capitale Grille, Amada etc. Its also a decent looking hotel w a pretty good lounge. But unless you get a great deal $159-$179(very rare) its definitely not worth a look. This will most certainly be my last visit to this Marriott.
The front desk person we dealt with was professional and pleasant.
