Wow; what to say; why did we leave in an hour? First, the hotel is going through a major renovation (which was not mentioned on the web page) and they still charge $239.00 per night. Reception is in a hallway and you have to zigzag around the parking lot to get there. Once you check in its around more construction to get to the elevators. Honestly, I could have lived with this and the ridiculous price, since we checked in at 8PM and were going to leave at 7:00AM. For us it was location, location, location. At least the fitness center was new.
Now, why the Oy Vey? The carpet in the room was stained in multiple places and torn. I went to sit in the desk chair and felt like I was going to fall through, and only a few of the buttons on the TV remote worked. There was clearly no quality control for housekeeping. Honestly, I didn't want to try the bed after I saw the sorry condition of the room. The bathroom was dated as well.
When I called downstairs to complain, the woman at the front desk said they could not discount, but if we wanted, we could checkout without a penalty. For the record, she was very pleasant and professional. She apologized and made the checkout process very simple.
Coincidently, we checked into the Renaissance Hotel (a Marriot property) and it was fine. We then stayed at the Marriott in San Diego and it was great.
