Will stumbled on this Marriott due to the condition of I-16 in that area. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful when asked for dinner alternatives. Check in was smooth and the only question dealt with the $10 overnight parking charge. Also when logging on to internet it appears there is a $9.95 charge. Call to the front deck cleared this up. The double queen bed room was clean and comfortable. Plenty of plugins for electronics. There was an excellent buffet breakfast that included custom made omelets as well as scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, plenty of assorted fresh fruits, oatmeal, yogurt, cold cereals, assorted rolls and pastries and more. This was free rather than take award points. The ladies working the buffet area were friendly, kept things cleaned up and made sure we had utensils, napkins. This Marriott is a very short drive to the city center where there are plenty of restaurants to choose from

Everyone at the Marriott has been so lovely and helpful for our entire stay. Beds are super comfy, rooms are clean, and the staff is super helpful and accommodating. The convenience to downtown, and connection to the conference center & coliseum are also very ideal. It's our second time staying here, and we are sure to return!

Let me start at the beginning. I was with a tourism conference at the Macon Marriott City Center. Our group was arriving throughout the afternoon on a Sunday. At approximately 12 midnight, the hotel had to send members of our group to other hotels because they could not get enough rooms cleaned. Luckily, I had a room 2 hours after checking in. After 40 years of managing hotels and teaching classes about hospitality, this was the first time I had come across this. But there is a pandemic. Right? It is common now, after the pandemic hit, for hotels to schedule the cleaning of a room only after you check out. That is to be expected in lodging. At one point early on, I ran out of clean towels and coffee and called the desk for additional items to be brought up to my room. Several hours later a houseman showed up with one coffee and a towel. I knew at that point it was going to be up to me to make sure I had enough supplies for the weeklong conference. I did not have any comments for the front desk or management because I knew from being a hotelier for 30+ years, that properties sometimes hit rough periods. Throughout my stay I noticed the staff had an attitude and it wasn’t very pleasant. There were canned responses “with pleasure”, but no sincerity behind the answers. It almost seemed to be a displeasure. But that is just my opinion. There was a bright spot and that was the excellent, sincere, friendly lobby bar tender, but I never did get her name. My big troubles started on the day of check out. Most of my items, I had taken down to my car early in the morning, starting to prepare to leave. The seminar I was in didn’t get out for its break until 15 minutes after checkout time. I was quite amazed when I made it to my room and the door had been resealed for a new guest, meaning they had cleaned my room within 15 minutes from the time I was to leave the room. What an astonishing transformation from 5 days earlier when they couldn’t find enough room attendants to clean our conferences rooms. WoW! I went back down to my seminar to finish on the conference before heading home. The one item left in the room I really wanted back was a wide brim hat my wife had bought for me many years ago. The next day, I started by thinking I should call the Executive Housekeeper because after running hotels for over 30 years, I knew this was the person that took care of lost and found. I had to leave a message after the desk transferred me. Over the next two weeks I left no fewer than 10 messages for housekeeping and their executive. Wow, I thought! Something must be wrong with this hotel’s housekeeping department! So, my next step was to see, sense it was a tourism conference, maybe the sales department could intervene for me. I called sales and got a pleasant young lady named Ashley. Ashley apologized I didn’t get a return call and told me she was going down to talk to the Executive Housekeeper about my hat. I mentioned to her that the hat was sentimental to me. My wife had bought it for me, and it meant enough to me to give a reward to the room attendant that worked that day and cleaned my room. I waited till the next afternoon and when I didn’t receive a call from the Executive Housekeeper, I called Ashley in sales back. She apologized and said she got busy and didn’t have time to run down to housekeeping, but she would make it down there today. I decided to wait awhile and give sales a chance to contact housekeeping. After 2 weeks I decided to call the General Manager and go right to the top. Or so I thought. When I called, I was connected with a pleasant woman named Kathy who was the GM. I explained my 3-week running problem with trying to talk to anyone about my sentimental lost hat. Again, Mary apologized and said she or the Executive Housekeeper would be calling me back within a day. I waited three weeks and being as stubborn and persistent as I am, I called Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program to see if they could get an answer for me about my hat. I talked to a nice lady named Denise. She again apologized and said she was unable to help me with this hat problem but gave me the number to Marriott Headquarters. Now I am getting somewhere – you would think. I spoke to another nice lady, Linda, and I started with “I was at a Tourism conference”. I still think this should matter to the hotel and Marriott. Linda, who after listening to part of my story, mentioned hotels are not responsible for items left in a room. I reminded Linda I had NOT talked to anyone yet that was able to see if my hat was found because after a month and a half, no one from the property would call me back. I asked Linda if she would like to hear about the service issues of the hotel and she kindly denied. After some time of talking to Linda and being put on hold, she gave me a case number. She said now that there was a case open, something would have to be done on this problem of mine. It was a Thursday and she said she didn’t know if someone would get to me by Friday but definitely by Monday. I received an email on August 1st, Sunday which read “I would like to first apologize for the inconveniences and the manner in which the situation has been handled. This in no way is the description of our team and business practices, and you have my humblest apology. I will be passing this information along to our Executive Housekeeper tomorrow so that she can scour her lost property logs and hopefully retrieve your item. Either way we will be in direct contact with you tomorrow morning. We look forward to getting the matter resolved for you and thank you again for your time. Sincerely, Charles – Front Office Manager”. I thought what a nice letter and finally, I will get an answer. Hopefully! Right? Not a chance! No way!! No phone call. No further email. Just dead silence. The case number was useless. Since all my friends are in the hospitality industry and I am on numerous boards, I have told this story to many tourism professionals so far. I even put it in two of my classes for this fall to tell students how not to treat your customer. A simple call back within a week or two would have satisfied me even if it didn’t return my hat. Now, the hotel stands to lose money. I believe customer service in hospitality is suffering from the pandemic and from years of employee neglect, and it is up to the giants like Marriott, Hilton, and Hyatt to do what it takes to make sure the Human Touch is still in the industry and lead the way for other smaller organizations. Just my humblest opinion.

I checked into this hotel on July 1. The first thing I noticed when I arrived in my room was long brunette hair in the bathtub (I have blonde hair). After getting my bathroom we cleaned I went to the bar to get a drink. The bartender was very rude she cannot keep up with who came to the bar and when. She even went so far as to say that we were getting on her nerves when one patron pointed out to her that I had been standing there for a very long time when she tried to wait on them before me. I stayed here for 23 days and I never went back to the bar again for food or beverages. On several occasions When I asked for towels I was told there was none. On some occasions I requested towels through the app and they were never delivered, So I had to get up in the morning before work and go to the front desk to get towels. As stated earlier my room was only being cleaned once a week and it wasn’t being cleaned then. On two occasions I returned to my room from work and my sheets hadn’t been changed but supposedly my room has been clean so I had the same sheets for over seven days. On one of these occasions my spread was noticeably soil and even after they came back to change the sheets they still left the dirty spread on my bed. This was my worst Marriott experience ever.
