On a road trip in New England, we booked this Marriott property because we frequent the brand and the staff in thier hotels all around the world never disappoint -- and they didn't here either. If you're familiar with the movie "Somehwere in Time" you'll have a real sense of the old-world charm of this aging property. But...try to book a Marina Suite if you can. Housed in a separate building right on the marina, these are huge apartment-like suites. However, the best ones require a trek down a significant number of stairs outside -- and bringing the suitcases up the stairs in the rain wasn't exactly fun, but it was worth it.
The suite was enormous -- much larger than we needed, but we loved the huge marble bathroom with shower and jacuzzi (the suite had three bathrooms all together and there were only two of us), and the living room with gas fireplace on this cool autumn evening.
We ate in their wonderful main dining room where the staff was charming and attentive and the food surprisingly terrific. The public areas, including the bar, are actually quite small and we did wonder what it would be like there during high season.
A word of caution in getting there: our GPS took us on what would have been the most direct route, only to find that the State Street bridge is actually out. According to the staff, this is a long-term project. You'll have to follow the detour if you approach it from that direction. We did ask them to post this information on their web site and the young woman thought this was a great idea and would take it to the manager.
