We booked the Sprowston based on the lovely photos on their website, but were a bit disappointed in a few areas of the hotel and its amenities. The rooms must be selected with care, as the heat and humidity coming from the pool and spa permeate upstairs, and it can be very hot and stifling if you are in a room above that area. We read a review done by a previous guest, and were happy with the temperature and views from room 355. The rooms at the far end of the hallway in the 350's are cooler and quieter. The issue of a currency converter for my iphone 4 was also difficult to resolve. I expected that this highly touted Marriot property would be equipped with outlets that convert currency and also have a plug adapter like the St Ermins (another Marriot) in London. Not only was that not the case, but the desk staff seemed to have no idea what I needed. Only after pressing them, and having someone else on the staff make a search for one, was I given the appropriate plug and converter. I think a hotel that bills itself as this caliber should be equipped with things like this in 2013, since the mobile phone is such a vital part of life now. A final not should be made about the signage for the hotel. We were driving north from Norwich and almost missed the hotel, as it does not have a proper sign posted far enough in advance and pointing to the actual driveway, so that you can turn from this busy, 2 lane roadway. Almost had a head on collision! It's pretty scary if you are used to driving in the US.
