While we had a few problems at this Marriott property (our toilet wouldn't stop running and made loud noises AND the concierge/executive lounge was closed since it is not open on the weekends -- a major drawback for Gold members who were not adequately forewarned), I found the property manager, Jeff Corcoran, to be very professional, thoughtful, and fair in...

Rooms were clean and staff were very friendly. Those are my top 2 priorities and the Marriott standard was evident here as both were satisfactory. Room setvice and valet were both prompt and friendly. The hotel overall needs a makeover, particularly the pool. On the 22nd floor, there is a section of the wall with bulging sheetrock in the hallway.... More

This hotel does not care of guest needs. They could not setup the rollaway bed for my kids and finally got frustrated and stayed at another hotel. The Front Desk staff did not care at all. No senior management was available to talk too. I don't recommend this hotel.

The shame is, I had a very nice room on a corner with a view of the water from two sides, but I wasn't in it long enough to enjoy it. The room was spacious and comfortable. The front of the building and the lobby look very traditional - brass and dark wood - but the guest room I was... More

Great hotel, i wish there was more to do within walking distance. Waterview is worth the extra money, and the service is great. It would be nice if they added a spa. Clean rooms, and we didnt hear any noise from outside of our room which made for a perfect night of sleep.

We attended the Caribbean festival and this place was amazing! My husband and I were both pleased with the service here. Staff was great. Everything was quiet and comfortable. We met Wesley one night and he is so sweet! I highly recommend this to anyone in the area.

Loved the location of this hotel. It was in walking distance to so many things - very convenient. Front desk service was top quality. There's a fabulous restaurant in the hotel and a nice little bar on the second floor. Valet parking at the hotel as well which is quite convenient.
