I must start by saying that the staff is wonderful. Everyone is friendly, just as you'd expect a Marriott property to be. The breakfast is good, just like you'd expect a Residence Inn property to be. But sadly, the rooms are dark, dank, and the walls are thin. My three nights here felt like the "cheap" apartments I used to live in back in the day. We wanted so much to open the curtains and look at the great Florida weather, but because of the courtyard style of construction, if we did so there would be no privacy. We were woken up at 5:30 listening to the people above us walk around and drag their suitcase downstairs to check out.
As a point of note, we did not book our room here. We were "walked" here because our original hotel choice was overbooked. We travel a lot, and stay in a lot of Marriott properties, but were truly disappointed here. This property might be good for those travelers who don't spend time in the room, but if you enjoy having a bright and airy room, this is not the hotel for you.
