I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. Atlantic City is really run down, so it seems like anything even remotely good stands out, and you find yourself saying a hotel or restaurant or casino is good "for Atlantic City."
Marriott's Courtyard Atlantic City is good -- for Atlantic City. The employees are very nice. The hotel is attractive. The rooms are very good, though anonymous. However, there's a long list of red flags.
The air conditioning didn't work. (Before I went to bed, the temperature was 71. I set the AC on cold with max fan with a min temp of 60. When I woke up, the temperature was 71.) My view consisted primarily of a bankrupt motel surrounded by old mattresses and broken lamps. My bathroom amenities included three bottles of conditioner but no shampoo. Don't know how you're supposed to use the coffee maker when there's no water in the room.
There were two -- count'em, two -- warning letters for the occupants, perhaps necessary for this low-rent party city. One stated in no uncertain terms that NO PARTIES WERE PERMITTED. No bachelor parties, no birthday parties, no slumber parties. Okay, fine -- but then add in the letter saying if I take the TV they're charging me $1,000 and you start thinking exactly what you got yourself into.
Worst was the unwanted wake-up call at 10 am. Someone at the front desk claimed they were testing the fire alarms and wanted to get into my unit. This is VERY odd considering I was checking out at 11, making me think they were actually saying GET OUT. Yeah, that makes sense: put a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door and they'll CALL you instead.
When I return to Atlantic City -- there are fun things to do here -- I'll try my luck elsewhere.
