Keeping COVID era in mind, The hotel was sparsely occupied. The Room was clean with plenty of towels and hand sanitizer.The in-house restaurants were closed and we're not serving any meals, however, the bar had happy for drinks only. The staff was very pleasant and appeared to just be happy to have our business. I'm a stickler when it comes to water pressure and the reduced flow shower would be my only complaint.

The hotel is very clean and classy looking. Modern and up to date. The room was clean and beautiful. The design is modern and new. Had a very quiet and restful stay. staff was so nice and service was great. Initially I was next to the a room with very loud people, but the hotel accommodated and moved me and it worked out so much better. The walls do seem very thin. It was the most perfect retreat during a stressful time.

I'm not sure if the state of things at this Marriott is how it's always been, or if it's a temporary lapse in service due to Covid hospitality fatigue, but I would probably not stay at this hotel again. It has some redeeming features, sure. First, there is a coffee maker in the room. Second, it's been renovated recently and although the dark brown on brown on grey color scheme is too melancholy for my taste, everything looks pretty new and neat. The lobby is bright, clean and spacious. If you're a no frills business traveler that just needs a fairly ok and benign place to crash for the night, you could do worse than this hotel. However, there is no maid service at this hotel. I mean none. I was there for 3 days and no one came to make up the room in that time. Eventually I had to run down a housekeeping cart to get some coffee pod refills. When I ran out of towels, I tried to call down to the lobby to request some more but the phone wasn't working. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a decorative phone that never worked. I called the hotel several times on my cell phone until someone picked up and when I mentioned the broken phone, the response was a polite "sorry." No one offered to replace the broken phone with a working one. They sent up some towels that smelled kind of mildewy. Later when I went down to the lobby and (nicely) mentioned some issues, like the total lack of housekeeping, again I received a polite "sorry" but no explanation and no attempt to correct any issue. The air conditioner in the room was barely working. It was sputtering like a dying engine and the entire time it was on, the room temperature did not budge a single degree. The sheets were ok - I don't mean to be a sheet snob, so I'll say they were alright and if you're used to sleeping on soft sheets at home you may find these a disappointment. They charge 10 dollars a day for wifi unless you're a Bonvoy member, but they did not apply my Bonvoy number upon check in so I had to go the front desk and ask to have the WiFi charges removed. A minor inconvenience but there were a few too many for just a couple night stay.

We appreciate you sharing your experience with us. First, we appreciate you acknowledging our rooms and amenities as we did recently complete a renovation. Please accept our apology for missing a few things regarding your stay. Yes, because of Covid, Marriott is limiting potential exposure between guests and staff, this includes housekeeping. Once the room meets our clean and safe standards, staff do not enter the room during one's stay. We are happy to bring up additional towels and toiletries as you mentioned. On the 4th day of one's continuous stay, we will conduct traditional housekeeping services. Wifi is complimentary for Bonvoy members and we are glad you shared your number with our staff so we could provide you this benefit. We hope you give us another try when you return to Del Mar.

This Marriott has a great pool and amazingly comfortable beds. That is why I rated it a 3. The staff was also pretty good. The gal that initially checked us in was great, I should have grabbed her name! The rest were ok, nothing special and even one gal on the phone when I called was a bit rude. Here is my issue: Because of COVID everything that one loves about being a preferred member (I am gold) we don't get. There is no connoisseur level breakfast , actually no breakfast at all, no maid service until day 4 and no extra reward points, no gym, no free parking (you know for the inconvenience), no upgrades, etc... I really don't understand the gym being closed. A hotel gym usually has 1 or 2 people in it at a time. I mean change the locks so that we have to get a key at the front to enter, that way you can control how many people in at once. This hotel has one tiny jaccuzzi which holds 8 people. Even at 8 people there is no social distancing. However, the jacuzzi had about 12 - 15 at any given time. Now I am not complaining about that, if a person is fine with the closeness then have at it. My issue is if we can be this close in the jaccuzzi why can't we have the gym open? I will say the hotel was monitoring as best it could to keep the limit to 8 and were very good about closing it nightly at 11. I get it, the state is closing gyms so they have no control, I guess. I do not get the maid service at all. We were there 4 days with 4 people with 2 coffee pods and 4 towels. We had to constantly call down for more coffee, toilet paper and towels. The room is a couple miles from the beach so we had to deal with sand in the room the whole time. I can sweep my own floor but of course there is no broom and no maid service. Marriott I am not sure what is going on here but this isn't the service I have come to know and love. The other weird thing and I don't know if this is new, but the ice was on floors 3, 6, and 9. So me on 10 had to drag my ice chest to 9 and then back again. Not a giant ordeal but again a little inconvenient. I suppose if I want to still travel right now I am going to have to learn that I don't get small conveniences anymore. I think I need to just stay in AirBnb's.

Room Tip: Our room didn't face the pool which is probably much quieter.

Thank you for your feedback and for sharing your experience. Happy to read that you enjoyed the property itself, our pool, and the staff. Unfortunately, the gym not being open for the time being is out of our hands as we are following state and county orders. Their ordinance not ours. We are offering a voucher/credit for the restaurant at dinner or to be used at our market with the temporary closing of the concierge lounge. Unfortunately, buffets do not fall within the current guidelines either. As travel picks up and hotels get busier, I think you will find your travel experience begin to normalize. We are at a time that everyone is having to adjust based on the current conditions. At least with a hotel vs an Airbnb, you have brand protocol on cleanliness and safety, a restaurant to prepare and cook your meals. :) Safe travels and we hope to see you return soon.

Recently stayed in this hotel for a weekend getaway before welcoming a baby. Room and amenities are beautiful. We always stay in this area at nearby hotels. Love the location. No complaints regarding the hotel itself - if all went as expected for Marriott, we would happily have stayed again. However, it did not. We booked a concierge floor room, expecting that the typical concierge amenities would apply. Upon arrival we were informed the concierge lounge was closed due to COVID. Instead we were comped hotel parking, which was appreciated but very much an annoyance since we received no prior disclaimer. The restaurant also closed an hour early - would have appreciated knowing this at checkin. Room cleaning service was also not available. Our shower also dripped throughout the night. Some of the staff we encountered were helpful while others were condescending, rude, and seemed irritated dealing with guests. We stayed three nights and room cleaning service did not come once. We had to call down on the third night to request towels & toiletries. We had purposely left our room once we saw housekeeping near our room on the third day so that our room could be serviced. We were informed they had scheduled a cleaning for the "fourth night" due to COVID. Again, this was not communicated during check in. Otherwise, we could have mitigated different expectations. Lastly, we had to report items stolen from our room on the third day that totaled <$1000+. There were no security cameras on our hall. We filed a police report and a report with Marriott, but this is an exceptional burden for what was supposed to be a nice getaway before having a baby. I have never thought twice about my items or family's security in a Marriott. This experience has changed that.

Thank you for sharing your experience. We apologize that your experience fell below the expectations we have for our guests. Unfortunately with the current environment, some of the traditional amenities have evolved to insure a safe and clean experience including all of which is shared on our website and other social media. Housekeeping service is tailored back due to reducing potential exposure for our staff and for our guests. Towels and other toiletries are being delivered when requested during one's stay. Regarding things missing from your room, we do have a process in place where we can always investigate who has entered the room via our key system.
