This is my second review of this place, as I needed to update my first one.
When you check in in this hotel, your card will be pre-authorized for the amount equal to cost of your room for the duration of your stay, which is another way of making you pre-pay for the service which you didn't yet receive. This alone I find dubious practice in Marriott, but what the hell.
During check out there was no connection to the bank or the card machine was broken and the receptionist charged my card again, promising to cancel the pre-authorisation.
Now I have received the statement and there are in fact two charges for my stay. I called the hotel in order to get this sorted, but the person on the other end could not find the record of my stay - which was about 3 weeks ago... Poor service, poor policies, another stay at any Marriott is very unlikely for me. I'd rather stay at no name hotel and get proper service then have my expectations not met by a brand name which seemingly means something in the hotel world.
From my last review - the rooms (at least on the third floor) are located in a different part of a building, so you need to do some exploring in order to get there. Location is good, right in the centre of town, near government buildings.
