Walked in the check-in area where a couple of older gentlemen were hanging out with a strong smell of beer on their breath. It was at this time I noticed the beer for sale in the refrigerator of the lobby. Makes sense, they sell it, they drink it, no big deal. The gentleman behind the check-in counter asked twice if I understood the pet rules. My confirmation of understanding was obviously not as nice as the first acknowledgement. He conveniently waived the pet fee due to my platinum status and having another room at a different Marriott for the same night with already paying a pet fee.
There were several young gentlemen, late teens to 20s, hanging out in the parking lot, hallways and stairways between 10pm and 2am in the morning. Some were polite and smiled; others were nonverbal and could have been confused for stare down artist practicing for competition.
The room was clean but the walls were really thin. You could easily hear next door and hallway traffic.
One of the guests spoke of gang presence but while unusual I felt safe. Understandably others would not feel this Marriott resembles the standard from this brand but rather a cheaper knockoff. I won’t be staying here again because of the thin walls but the overall feel was not you normal Marriott vibe.
