We spent two nights in Room 723 – Concierge Level (were upgraded because of Platinum Elite status), but this room had a parking lot view, not the nice golf course view, which is seen from even numbered rooms. We used to stay here once or twice a year since about 2000, but we stopped staying here in 2008 because the rooms had become shabby & not well maintained. So, we opted to stay at a newer nearby hotel instead during our 2009-2010 visits. Because of a last minute change in plans & the low price we were able to get the day before arrival, we decided to stay once again at this Marriott. Our expectations were low, because I read on Trip Advisor that the hotel is under renovation. Happily, there was no evidence of this – no construction dust anywhere. Our room was probably one of the renovated ones, since the carpet & upholstery looked clean & new & the furniture was not nicked (as we had in previous rooms there). Room 723 is a nice, large, comfortable room with very good lighting. The bathroom is nothing special – large enough to move around comfortably. The sink has a large countertop, which is always appreciated. The bathroom light is on motion sensors, so it will turn on when you walk in; but it also has an automatic shut-off. Thus, if you are in the shower, you can suddenly find yourself in the dark. You will have to wave your hands or shake the shower curtain or call for your roommate to turn the light back on. There was one annoying flaw in our room – the doorstop is mounted on the floor just in front of the closet door. We inadvertently stepped on it & twisted our foot every blessed time we needed something from the closet. (We wear soft slippers, so it was painful). It’s a really poor design. The front desk staff was very friendly & helpful. The housekeeping staff was very nice & concerned (asking if there’s anything they can do for you when you pass them in the corridor). The valet parking team was friendly & very efficient. This is definitely a hotel that aims to please. We have usually stayed here over a weekend, and there always seems to be some conference going on in the lobby area. This weekend was no exception.
