We have stayed here a few times during COVID. I think they struggled through the challenges but have really stepped up their game. The front desk staff was incredibly friendly (quite frankly, they could be working at a St. Regis) and the rooms are very nicely updated. We were treated very well as Titanium members. The pool was actually larger than we expected and the kids had an awesome time swimming. The hotel restaurant is really solid and has a good breakfast option. We also like being near One Paseo and all of the other San Diego attractions.

My wife and I are now retired having spent 50 years in the tourism industry. This is the first time we have ever checked out of a hotel after one night Things started badly when we checked in at 7pm. The front desk person was very polite and totally insincere. I asked if there was a shop there to buy water. The answer was and is the most incredible answer I have ever been given to such a simple question. “ terribly sorry but the hotel is out of water “. I explained I need to take medications and don’t drink sodas. Without knowing whether I had a car or not he directed us to a convenience store down the road “. I asked if there perhaps one bottle on the room and was told no. A very nice gentlemen at the front desk heard this and said he would find some water. He came back with 2 bottles of sparkling water ( perfectly fine). The irony is that when we got to the room there WERE 2 small bottles of water We booked a suite as we were supposed to stay 7 nights. The suite was just all brown, dated old furniture and so depressing. When I went down in the morning to ask if perhaps there was a better room, I was told there was but furniture etc would be the same. I told the young lady about the water experience etc. she was very apologetic and actually offered me 100,000 points as an apology and that they would move us to the nicer suite. Housekeeping was still cleaning the room and she said she would call us as soon as it was ready. 3 hours later ( sitting in our room ) not a word. I went down and she thought someone had called and that the room was in fact ready 2 hours before. My wife and I looked at each other and decided to leave. What is worse is we are Bonvoy gold elite status, which I’m starting to question if it was such a good decision to give our post COVID travels to Bonvoy Needless to say I’ve never received the promised points Never again

Dear "normanp28," Thank you very much for taking the time to submit your feedback after your recent stay. I was surprised and disappointed to read your message, which prompted me to follow up with my team immediately. I know we experienced some regional procurement challenges last week that resulted in a shortage of bottled water across San Diego, and that impacted your arrival experience. The agent who spoke with you initially should not have offered the solution he did. Please accept my apologies for having concerned you as we did, as well as for the housekeeping communication breakdown. I also learned that when our Complex Director of Rooms, Bryant Moore, overhead your interaction with our front desk agent, he immediately assisted and was able to resolve the matter to your satisfaction. He told me he provided you with his business card and asked that you contact him personally should you have any additional questions or concerns. I am also sorry you did not find our accommodations appealing. Having been completely remodeled less than two years ago, most guests have found our rooms and suites to be very enjoyable; I am sorry you and your wife did not find your suite's décor to be appealing. The photos on our website are, in my opinion, an accurate depiction. With regards to the mentioned offer of 100,000 Bonvoy points, I am afraid that has yet to be confirmed by anyone here on property. Please feel free to contact me directly at (858) 369-6001 regarding this. I look forward to your reply. Warm regards, Tom Kermabon Area General Manager

This is a remodel hotel. Hardwood floor, comfortable bright bathroom, 4-digit safe, fridge in the room and lounge. Parking is $30 per night (non valet). LG TV in room is complimentary HBO and ShowTime, with access to Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu and others with your subscriptions. Location is great, just behind Torrey Pines reserve. Hotel is quiet. I'm a regular for this location. And I used to like it a lot. BUT feather free requests are NEVER honored (it's in my pref. in the marriott app, and I even called the hotel before showing up) so check as you enter the room (and they might send you replacement pillows that are... feather pillows... yes... I know... unbelievable). Any request done within the app (more towels, more amenities...) are ALWAYS ignored. What's bothering is the maintenance of the hotel is very bad: things fall apart in the room, hanging items left... hanging. Cleanliness is degrading: hair in the shower, suspicious fingerprints in the toilet paper roll, sewer smell in the corridors (floor 6 and 7), soap dispensers faulty in the public restrooms (it's been months). COVID-19 update: there is no room service by default. If you are staying more than one night, you need to ask for it. They do NOT inform you when you check in. The lounge is closed until further notice. I heard it might reopen on Sept. 1th 2021. Not even sure. Like I said I was a regular of this hotel before covid. This is not the same service since covid. Not sure I will continue to stay in this hotel. It's worse and worse every visit.

Excellent experience once again. Very modern and clean room with hardwood floor, swimming pool and hot tub are well maintained. Friendly staff, easy access to nearby beach at Torre Pines and restaurants. We stayed 3 days and 2 nights and our room was cleaned TWICE! We will definitely be back again!

We stayed 3 nights at the Marriott San Diego Del Mar. We booked and paid $705.89 for a 3 night stay through Hotwire.com. After our first night, we came back to the room and the keys wouldn't work. When I went down to the desk, they said that we only booked for one night (we didn't). While they were "fixing" it, I received an alert telling me that we were charged $528.62--I was charged the regular room rate for 2 additional days even though we had already paid through Hotwire. When I brought it up with the hotel cashier, I was told it was for incidentals and wouldn't be charged. I asked about it again during checkout, and was told the same thing. They're either too lazy to [fully] look into the problem, too incompetent to recognize their error, or dishonest. I won't say that I'll never stay at Marriott again, because I've had many great experiences at JW and Vacation Club, but next year when I book several weeks of business travel, it won't be Marriott. I certainly won't be staying at Del Mar again.
