the hotel is old, but well painted and carpeted. the staff is very pleasant. it meets marriott standards on the inside. HOWEVER, as to the greeting and sinage, be advised. there is no clear marriott sign to identify the hotel as one drives to the front main street. There are NO bell hops or concierge people to mee the car in the main entrance in front. There is NO sign to direct an arriving hotel stay person to the entry for valet parking or bell boys, which are located under the hotel, in the rear, at the end of a dead end street. even as one enters the dead end, there is NO sign to the right to where the marriott entrance is located. you kind of "feel" your way to the hotel valet parking. once you turn over your bags and get your car ticket, you enter an elevator with NO designation as to where one checks into the hotel. one floor says "lobby" and i guess you are supposed to know where the check in might be. kind of like parking and valet, you "feel" your way to the check in. NO signs. NO help when you get off the elevator, and NO ONE in lobby to direct you, and NO concierge. One can see, if one walks toward the restaurant, an area, empty of people, that looks like a check in. where you stand and wait for some unknown person to come from some unknown place. no bell to call for service. When asking for the manager, the manger does not come and arrive. if you are a little noisy, they send a security person to stand by you and watch. all in all a good aussie welcome to the land of vacation. I have been to over 100 nations and stayed at over 1,000 5 star hotels in 20 years, and can only say, that the greeting and "direct into" on this hotel, is the absolute worst. the worst. and not up to any marriott standard, let alone even a fairfield cheapo.
