I've stayed here for 12 hours only, as I had to escape back to the States due to flight cancellation.
During my brief stay I quite enjoyed staying at Marriott. Being both GOLD with Marriott and platinum with IHG I couldn't work out from the reception team if I was upgraded or downgraded etc.... However, it is worth saying that I have arrived early and was promptly checked in without the need to wait until 15.00 which was excellent.
The quality of my daytime sleep was excellent.
The pool (dec 2013) was a little cold, but at these altitudes I wasn't surprised!
Hotel taxis might seem expensive, however, you can haggle and the hotel might be able to match yellow taxi prices, which was quite a pleasant surprise. The concierge team will help you to get the best value rate anyhow. Great guys.
The room was nice, but a little too old fashioned for me. The Internet was fast and reliable in all areas of the hotel.
Bathroom is very nice and includes a separate shower.
I'd recommend this hotel to any traveller, however, the rate could bite you just a little bit
TIP: no doubt you will head to the elevator to the hill /extinct volcano, however, I've been to high altitudes before (Hawaii), so please, allow yourself a day to relax and acclimatise to the normal city altitude ( 8000ft?) and then next day go to the hill (14.500ft?). Getting tipsy on/off the aircraft, checking in and jumping off to the 14,500ft mountain straight away is not exactly easy. Taxi to the elevator from hotel $5.
