Please be reminded/aware that my review is based purely on my OWN personal experience and emotions during the period of my stay and may not reflect your own experience, opinion or personal view.
Like other reviews, I can confirm that this hotel is not close to anything spectacular.
After an exceptionally long trip I walked through the front door with mixed feelings walking into a slightly out dated decor.
The reception desk was an interesting exercise. It beats me to comprehend that the "face of a Marriott franchise" consists of youngsters in training - not a senior staff member in sight allowing these trainees to sink themselves. Management should be ashamed of themselves a) having training staff thrown into the deepest end in such a manner b) the "interesting" selection of nationality creating the hotel's first impression.
Despite all, check-in was successfully positive.
I was pleasantly surprised at the "courtyard" which sported a beautiful and idillic scenery of pool combined with stretch of canal.... very pretty and perfect holiday feeling.
However, sitting in the lounge I felt a "soaking feeling" in the sole of my shoes.... only to find out that there is a leak from the canal straight into the reception lounge, sporting a sopping wet carpet. It is my understanding that the Marriott courtyard will be undergoing renovations in the near future to sort out this problem.
A Starbucks open lounge was situated in the reception area - unfortunately my excitement lasted till the first sip of my chilled coffee- not completely authentic in line with the original franchise (like many franchises in the Middle East who get away with the franchise name alone)
Although I was given a room with two single beds I was pleasantly surprised at the large size of the beds.
To the contrary, the bathroom towels are so small that you may choose if you would like to cover your chest area or your bottom area.
Having said all of the above, as a reward member, I was treated up to Marriott standards and internet facilities were a dream.
Enjoyed the selection of TV channels
Staff who served us were all, without exception, very helpful and professional.
I look forward coming back in the near future
