We stayed one night In early October, traveling from the Albany area to run the Diva Half Marathon in Uniondale. Desk staff was helpful and suggested nice place for a casual-but-not-chain-restaurant dinner. Our room was standard Marriott-type with comfy beds and clean, bright bath.
The first inconvenience I noticed was parking. When we arrived back from dinner (9pm, not very late), the front parking area was full. We had to drive around and park well behind the building, where there are no card-access entrances. If guests are expected to have to hike all the way around to the front of the building, the parking lot could use a lot of extra lighting.
Well into the early morning hours, we heard slamming doors every few minutes. I know hotel room doors have to auto-shut, but you'd think they would have found a way to not have them SLAM! so loudly by now. The people in the next room were up most of the night- even though they were using normal tone, we could hear them just fine through the walls. The air conditioning system drowned that for a a few minutes, but when it started turning on-off-on-off-on-off every few minutes, that became just as annoying. We considered turning on the shower to have a little white noise but didn't want to be wasteful. The slamming doors and conversation continued well past 2am, which made us pretty cranky since we had to get up at 530am for our 13-mile run.
Courteous staff and comfy pillows helped to make our otherwise unpleasant stay more bearable. I'd try to avoid staying there again- but if given no other choice, I'd go and bring really good earplugs.
