There's a reason this hotel is available so cheaply on Priceline, etc...you'll have to be pretty desperate to stay here. Arrived at 2:30 on a Saturday, room wasn't ready but we were advised to return in 45 min. Ok fine, understandable since they were sold out the night before. Toured the city for a bit and returned at 4:00 (45 min after our promised time, mind you!), room STILL not ready. Had to wait in the lobby another hour before the room was finally done. All we wanted to do was a quick cleanup and then hit the town; this delay ruined our plans for the entire day. Management was apologetic but offered no compensation. Once we did check in, had to walk thru the common halls and the stench was absolutely unbearable. As in, sick to your stomach bad. Room itself was clean and livable but clearly dated. This hotel obviously was not orignally a Mariott property and does not meet their usual standards of comfort and cleanliness. Called corporate a couple of days later to register our concerns and the Presidential customer service rep says the hotel checked us in at 4:01!!! This property is so far below standards that the corporate office has to flat out lie about it to save face! Please folks, spend a few bucks more and just stay somewhere else.
