stayed at the location because it is adjacent to the convention center, where I had to attend a meeting. I arrived at 6pm & there 5 people in line ahead of me to checkin. Initially only 2 staff (surprising given size of property), but after a while, a 3rd person came. My time in line was 20 minutes, more than the time I had to wait for luggage at airport or taxi ride to location. Once 3rd person arrived (manager), line moved quickly. Room was clean, nice view of the bay. Toilet has water saving capacity, but I was surprised that the room did not have the blue Marriott recycle trash bin. I did like the night light in the bathroom- didn't have to use my laptop powercord light. I was there on weekend, so M club closed. They give you a $15.00 credit, but the only on site sit down restaurant was buffet only- $32.00- so breakfast would still cost $17.00. You can use credit at Starbucks, but that only gets you oatmeal & coffee. They should do better on weekends. Check out was easy. Again, only 5-10 minute walk from convention center.

One of the worst Marriott experiences I have had. The hotel is cheap; the customer service is awful. We can’t wait to check out and will never be back. A few things to highlight: - Cheap scratchy bedding; uncomfortable bed (although my wife thought it was fine) - Noisy Vents and AC - No complimentary breakfast for Bonvoy members on the weekends - They charge a resort fee (this is not a resort), but don’t offer resort amenities. No bottled water or drinkable coffee in the room. The gym was closed when we got there. - They charge $15 for WiFi. I object on principle - The staff couldn’t care less about customer concerns. They know SD is booming and a conference town with more demand than supply. Not up to Marriott standard and they break the understood deal that Titanium Elite and Ambassador guests will be taken care of. This is why Marriott should have never been allowed to buy Starwood. They have too much market power and it shows in their declining service and rising prices.

Dear 263allent, We appreciate your loyalty to our hotels, and regret that we did not meet your expectations. Your feedback on the vents and AC will be shared with our Engineering team so they may focus on this area when conducting maintenance in our guest rooms. Due to our group and convention status as a hotel, our M Club is one of only a handful in the company that does not currently open on the weekends. However, we do provide Marriott Bonvoy points for the weekend in lieu of the concierge lounge. If you did not receive those points, please reach out to us directly. Our Daily Destination Amenity fee is a bundle of our most popular amenities offered exclusively to our Hotel guests at a significant discount, purchased individually these amenities have a value of more than $140.00. In order to provide this value bundle, we must pass the destination amenity fee through to all of our guests regardless if their stay is either leisure or business. We sincerely apologize that your stay was not more enjoyable and comfortable. We do hope you will give us an opportunity in the future to regain your trust. Warm regards, Donna Lynn Chong Director of Hotel Operations

We stayed at his property in March for a conference at the hotel. This was our second stay here and it was almost as nice as the 1st. This time, however, the bed was not very comfortable. Scratchy linens and the mattress had me feeling like I was sleeping on a slope and might roll off the bed. That is not what I expect of Marriott properties at this point and was very disappointing. The bed a few days later when we switched to a Residence Inn near Disneyland was so much more comfortable and the room was huge comparatively. That said, the pool area is very nice and we spent a lot of time there. It was also nice to walk along the waterfront.

I booked a room for my birthday weekend over 90 days out and 30 days from my stay Marriott cancelled my reservation claiming it was because I used points and didn’t have enough, even though my credit card was on file and my reservation confirmation said it was guaranteed. When I contacted them to fix the issue they didn’t care and couldn’t be bothered to apologize. They refused to take any actions to help me reinstate my reservation other than to tell me I can rebook the room at 4x the price (originally booked at around $200 a night, now they’re asking over $800). All of my friends who also booked rooms there for my birthday weekend, didn’t have their reservations cancelled… now me and all my friends have to try and find a new hotel 30 days out. I will never stay at this Marriott ever again. I suggest you do not book this hotel unless your ok with the hotel keeping your reservation unless they think they’ll get more money closer to your actual stay.

My most recent stay in Jan 2022 at the Marriot Marquis San Diego had been really below par and one of the worst experiences I’ve had since I joined the Bonvoy program in 2016 of which I've been an Ambassador Elite member. This was for both a training my company organized for a business trip. As such, my assistant had booked a reservation under my name and the corporate event also reserved a room – with the notion that given our company is using a lot of space at the hotel, there should be flexibility to find a good room for me / upgrade. 1. Extreme service slowness / lack of professionalism: I arrived at the front desk at 10pm local San Diego time, already tired and hoping to get to my room as soon as possible – there was a ~30-40 min wait as the only representative at the front desk took forever to process the guest in front of me, and then when it came to my turn, there was a ton of confusion from him about a duplicate reservation even as I explained I’m here for a corporate event and also on business so that he can charge the hotel bill eventually to either the corporate event or my corporate card. He called his manager and spoke to him for 10 mins on the phone while I waited and finally resolved to cancel one of the reservations. He spent no time explaining to me the amenities- I had to ask about the gym, breakfast, etc. 2. Zero acknowledgement of membership loyalty / did not provide hospitality that should be afforded to loyal Marriot members: o The front desk person also did not realize I was a Marriot member – which is extremely ridiculous and had never happened at any Marriot property I’ve come t0 – he said, “oh sorry I did not realize” when I said, “is it not in the system?” o He also made a rude remark about my last name - “oh, very long last name, no wonder it’s showing up incorrectly” – blaming his lack of knowledge that I’m a Marriot member on my last name. o When I inquired about a room upgrade, which is typical for my membership status as an Ambassador elite member, he said it’s “NOT POSSIBLE”, and I asked about rooms with bathtubs (which I had inquired about prior to arriving) – and he made it rudely clear to me it is not possible given I’m here with the corporate training / conference – even though I had told him he can charge the bill to my corporate card if that makes a difference. He perfunctorily checked the system, and said “the only rooms with bathtubs we have now have twin beds, so, it’s up to you”. Gravely disappointed and shocked at his lack of professionalism, I eventually went with the room he assigned given it was way past 10:45pm local time and I was beyond tired after flying 5 hours from New York City 3. Room was dirty / towels had blood & TV was broken: o When I arrived at my room, I was shocked at some of the elements. First, one of the bathroom towels had two big blotches of blood stains. Second, the TV was broken / had blue light shading across the screen. This is seriously unacceptable at any property o When I called to ask for an upgrade because I really couldn’t stand the room despite how tired I was, the man on the phone (who is the manager of the front desk rep I spoke to earlier) gave me an extremely rude attitude about how my company had cancelled a bunch of rooms due to the Covid -19 omicron outbreak due to participants deciding not to come (i.e., he said “your company cancelled XXX rooms and our hotel is not going to accommodate any other changes. If you want to pay out of pocket i can put you in a suite – but your company is going to be on the hook to pay for this cancellation, too.” I could not believe this is the attitude of a manager at a Marriott property. He was taking his frustration towards my company out on a single individual – me – who is not responsible for the cancellations that have happened. Not to mention that the cancellations I know of had most likely come from our Canadian colleagues who are in lockdown in Canada which happened very quickly (not their fault) 4. Overall unsatisfying: Room service cannot be placed the night before but only in the morning. Overall lack of cleanliness in the rooms. Food quality was low. The only redeeming factor was the view of the bay and the weather. I'm hence giving this two stars - and because now that I've stayed at the W Miami, I now know that this isn't the worst. There's no hotel on earth as bad as the W Miami (it will remain my only 1 star review for a long time to come, I suspect - hopefully anyway)

Booked months in advance, checked in the day before via the app, on arrival no room type available! Offered another room for one night with the promise to move our luggage. New room available…. No luggage!! Eventually found and delivered. Room tired, balcony filthy, completely under whelming. Independent travellers avoid this hotel, they are only interested in conference business. To sum up ….pathetic.

This was my second visit at this property and it does not disappoint. There’s so many great restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. The property has some great benefits included with the resort fee. The pool area is beautiful and well kept. Richard the bellman is one of the best bellman I’ve ever met throughout my travels. He gave me a great tour of the property and was able to answer any questions I had. Richard kept a smile on his face and was always courteous and helpful. The valet could use some work but I understand they’re usually employed by third parties so I won’t deduct a star for their subpar service. There’s no doubt that I’ll definitely return to this property whenever I’m in San Diego.

Great locations for the activities we planned! Enjoyed being able to walk to gaslamp district, USS midway and the shops and restaurants in seaport village. Glad that we booked a bay views. Pool was awesome. Staff was great. Clean hotel but could use a little refresh. Beds and pillows were not comfortable.

We enjoyed our stay because the location is absolutely perfect if you want to stroll the marina and enjoy the beautiful harbor area. But the facilities are aging and in need of major renovations. Furnishings, carpet, bedding. It's time for some updates.

I stayed with a group of six, including myself, mid-February. We were there for a business conference. One of my party was charged $381 for a cancelation when he did not cancel and did indeed stay at the hotel the booking dates. They now will not remove the charge. Our whole group probably spent $10k staying there. They also would not provide itemized folios to us after check out. Will not go back. I will stay anywhere else.
