My wife and I stayed at this hotel from April 27, 2007 through April 29, 2007 in room 638. We paid approximately $100.00 a night and overall we were very pleased.
The room was very clean and of above-average size. What we liked most about the room was the very comfortable bed. The bed also had a significant number of very soft pillows. The bathroom was spacious and came with all the usual amenities. We liked the body lotion and shampoo so much that we plan to buy the same brands the next time we go shopping. Just before we were about to leave we saw a nice new bath robe that we could have used. I didn’t have any problem with the climate of the room as other reviewers have complained about.
We both enjoyed the pool area. The pool was very warm and was of a decent size. There were plenty of complimentary towels. The hot tub was also great. I was glad to learn that the pool was open until 11:00 pm, unlike a lot of other hotels that close their pool hours earlier in the day.
We had the breakfast buffet and we were both impressed. The variety was very good and the quality of the food was excellent. The total cost for the buffet for two was about $27.00, a good deal in my opinion.
The hotel was not located within walking distance of any stores or restaurants. Also, the hotel is difficult to reach by car if you’re not familiar with the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful in securing transportation to Salem and to Boston Logan Airport. The day we checked in there were a large number of children in the hotel for a special event so the staff made sure to put us on a different floor from where the children were staying. We appreciated that gesture.
There was only one real complaint I had with my stay and that was the placement of the television set. Instead of the television being placed directly in front of the bed, it was placed perpendicular to the bed. Therefore, if you were lying in bed, you would have to turn your head almost 90 degrees just to look at the television. That was not comfortable.
I was pleased with my stay as I have been with most of my other stays at Marriott Hotels. I would definitely stay here again.
