This was my second stay at the Hilton Head Marriott. I had called the hotel a couple of days before checking in to extend my stay by one night. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived to learn that I had been "upgraded" to an oceanfront suite. The suite was simply a larger room at the ocean end of the south tower building. Previously I had stayed in an ocean front room in the main tower. The hotel is definitely showing its age, and I was pleased to read a comment from the management that the hotel will be renovated soon.
Overall, the hotel is in a great location, and my room was on the top floor of the south tower, so it had an unobstructed view as close to the water as possible. I was also happy to learn that the resort fee now includes in-room wifi. Parking was free in the garage, though I'm not sure if this is year-round. The Marriott is on a great stretch of beach and is great for long walks in the morning and afternoon.
The bathroom is quite awkward, so I hope the layout will be changed during the renovation process. The shower door opens out right next to the bathroom door. There is no way to turn on the water without actually getting into the shower which can be a bit challenging given the awkward location of the shower door. The water pressure was seriously lacking as well.
I used the indoor pool several times, but was disappointed to see that there is a leak in the glass roof (quite noticeable during the rain while I was there).
Overall, this is still a great property, and I look forward to returning after the renovations are completed.
