This was the hotel where we were supposed to meet family from The Netherlands as well.
When we checked in with Carlos, he said that they had no record of staying there and it might have been my mistake of hotel. So we went to check on the other Marriott in town to find out what I already knew and that they were nowhere to be found! So back to Carlos and I asked him if they have a record of people who have never checked in and hey, he found that they checked out that morning. What? Impossible! To make a long story short, we decided to have dinner in the lobby (recommendable!!) and await the whole situation.
Luckily for us, my family arrived just after that, being in Sequoia that day as well. So after explaining the whole situation to my cousin, he frowned his eyebrows and said that their suitcases were still in the room! So somebody needs to start thinking better! He made us think they may have driven of a cliff or something, which is not unlikely there.
Back to the hotel: when you come in, some Gomez will hold the door for you. Thank you, but I can do it myself.
You know how the desk is, the lobby restaurant is great! Close to 5 star food for 4 star prices. Both enjoyed it!
The room was okay, but for the early booked 120 dollars, I expected more of it and wasn't very well finished in the bathroom. The ceiling had paint blisters and that was something we experienced and expected in the local Super 8. Not here!
In the room you have a large 40 inch TV, with mainly HD channels, mostly sports. Wifi is not for free in any way. Expensive!
When going by elevator, everything flies, no time to talk!
Overall, good if you like luxury, but a lesser hotel in town would do just as nice. We saved 30 dollars by booking at least a month in advance, otherwise we would not take this hotel.
