We recently spent 2 nights here with Marriott certificates that were about to expire.
We were greeted by a bellman who cheerfully assisted with luggage. Check in was pleasant and efficient. Because of my husband's platinum elite status we were assigned a room on the 14th floor concierge level. The accomodation was a fairly spacious corner room with views of downtown and LI sound. Some traffic noise from I95 was audible but it did not disrupt my sleep (and normally I am a very light sleeper). The room was clean and in addition to the usual amenities had a refrigerator, coffee maker, bathrobe and 2 complimentary bottles of water (since it was concierge level). the king bed was lovely with higher end linens. The pool is very nice with both an indoor and outdoor component - one complaint is that the pool towels provided are very small and worn.
The concierge lounge had a lovely view and a fireplace which would be nice in cooler weather. It had the usual honor bar with complimentary soft drinks and Starbucks coffee. The appetizer spread was rather impressive with shrimp tempura, crudite, various types of cheese and crackers, pasta salad etc. Dessert was a Boston Cream Cake/Pie and Apple Pie. The evening concierge was very engaging. Breakfast was typical Marriott concierge lounge fair.
One downside was that we were unaware until check in that a large dart tournament was being held during the days we were there. Many of the dart players seemed to be rather heavy smokers/drinkers and the parking garage entrance was always full of choking smoke even though the hotel attempted to minimize it with industrial fans.
Overall we would consider staying here again. It is very close to many good restaurants.
