This is an older facility just off I-95. Its main competitor is the nearby Doubletree. In January 2011 it was believed that if you bid on Priceline for a 3.5* hotel in Palm Beach Gardens, you will receive one of these two hotels. I obtained the Marriott for a bid of $47. When you check in, the Doubletree offers you a hot chocolate cookie. This hotel offers you apples, oranges or bananas. Although close to I-95, access is complicated by one way ramps. Nothing is within walking distance.
The hotel is older, but clean and well-maintained. The pool is in a nice garden area, but it was too cold to get in the water. The rooms include a modern wide-screen television. My room did not include a refrigerator, but the desk clerk had a small refrigerator delivered to the room without extra charge.
This hotel is best suited for Marriott Rewards guests who can take advantage of the concierge floor, its breakfast and its daily beverages. For all others, breakfast is not included and wi-fi in the room is not included. In January 2011 the hotel was asking $13 a night for in-room internet access. They did offer a free, 24/7 business center with two computers connected to the internet and a third computer for printing out airline boarding passes.
As I was about to depart, I realized that I had absent-mindedly locked my luggage key inside my suitcase. The hotel engineer opened the suitcase by picking the lock with a paper clip. He refused any gratuity.
If you are a Marriott Rewards member, this is a fine place. For others, get a refrigerator in your room and be prepared to serve your own breakfast.
