I stayed in this hotel for business. The check in staff are very nice and polite. The other staff are reasonably polite.
As noted in other reviews - don't count on the main restaurant having a seat for you. The lounge has a limited menu. There is also a "sports lounge".
Clubhouse: non descriptive, unlike other Marriott hotels. One time came with salad/chips (crisps) crammed into a long and narrow plate.
Second time, came in a normal plate, stone cold (toasted) and with chips (crisps) only. No salad. Staff unapolagetic about cold toasted sandwich.
Marriott burger: bland (and it is not because it is the UK - Marriott Windsor has an excellant one). Not even worth eating the Marriott burger.
Breakfast: Staff at door spends so much time seating people and ordering coffee (that sometimes never comes) that you wait in line and lose time for no reason. Meanwhile, other staff could order your coffee for you since there are a gazillion of them standing around like zombies.
The breakfast food is fine - normal fare. They do have an egg/omlette station. However, it was unstaffed every time I was there and no one even asks you if you'd like an omlette or differently done egg. It seems to be set up..but a complete waste of time.
Rooms: small, comfortable, air condtioning not up to par.
Fellow guests: some of them ignorant. For example, smoking right outside their balcony so it comes into your room. Smoking out in front of the hotel, despite signs directing them to the smoking area. The staff - front desk and lounge - completely oblivious or non caring that the whole main common area of the hotel is being inundated with tobacco smoke. I mean...you put no smoking signs out in front of the door, and then DO NOTHING when various groups of people smoke there? NOTICE the smoke, do something about it.
I packed up my bags and stayed the rest of my time in the area at a different hotel. I may return just for the room night credits - but with tobacco smoke and poor quality food service, it really doesn't make me that happy. I'll eat at the roadside "services" and stay in a "non premium" room.
