My husband and I are currently spending 3 nights at the Marriott with our two small children in a premier delux room.
The concierge and check in are wonderful, upon arrival we were offered a drink of water and we received a complimentery bottle of wine and our children received a small bag with crayons and activities for them to do as well as a lollipop. Our bags were taken to our room and the concierge explained how to use the light switches that really aren't as complicated as previously implied.
The rooms are beautiful although the carpet seems a little grungy (coming from an interior designers point of view" the carpets could do with cleaning but aren't excessively dirty (our daughter was crawling on them and her knees were hardly dirty) and although I read the walls were thin we haven't heard a peep!
The concierge has been wonderful, we called down for a cot and it was there in 5 minutes, then we called for an extra key an they brought it up within 10-15 minutes. Then deserts from room service took about half an hour and I find for a hotel the mini bar and menu prices are fairly reasonable, no more than you would pay on an airplane, we paid more or a drink down at the 7/11 than we do from the mini bar.
The hotel is close to the free city circle tram and getting around is easy from here.
Overall I think they have payed close attention to previous negitive reviews and made mountains of improvement from what I read before booking, I was hesitant but now I am glad we chose to stay here, it definitely has the luxury feel!
