Parking seemed adequate and we immediately noticed a Boston Market right next door - a good thing!! Check in went decent enough but the welcome wasn’t very warm. There were no luggage carts available and the staff said they looked in the hallways but couldn't find any so guests must be keeping them in their rooms. About an hour later I went to get ice and found a cart tucked in a short hall leading to a room at the end of a hall when I went to get ice - obviously the hotel staff who looked for the carts just stood in the hallway and looked both ways instead of looking in all the areas large enough for a cart to be hidden from view.
The room we had was an “executive” king as it had a balcony but the room itself was very small. There was about 14” of space between one side of the bed and the wall and a sofa that was at the foot of the bed. We pushed the sofa toward the window to provide a little bit more walking space and so my husband wouldn't bang his knees. There was no place to set suitcases in the room except on the floor in front of the balcony window (unless you used the closet). The bedding was very light - I usually prefer a comforter. I liked the fact that the sink was separated from the bathtub and toilet but didn’t lie the lack of counter space around the sink. All in all I felt very cramped in this room. Finally I am disappointed that Marriott decided to do away with free coffee in the lobby. I know I can make some in my room but it is difficult as you have to struggle opening condiment packages (and powder for coffee just isn’t as good as half and half). Anyway, we now have to opportunity to buy coffee in the lobby. I probably won’t stay here again but it is just because the room was too small for two people.
