Here for a one night stay precruise. Arrived at 130pm but check in is not until 3, very pleasant front desk staff, made suggestions on some things to do while we wait. Headed out for a few hours, upon return there is a small art show with appetizers in lobby. We have a balcony room on fourth floor, room 412, small but usable living area with small sleeper sofa and chair, desk with wobbly chair, kitchenette area with cube fridge (watch out its frozen) and microwave. Half wall hides the sleeping area with small closet and sink area outside the toilet and tub/shower combo. Basic toiletries which seem half filled (?) bar soap (yuck) and thin, long towels. Everything very clean but worn, in good working order. Shower has hot water and is a full sized tub, shower curtain fresh and clean.
We have a balcony which overlooks the parking lot but further is the bay and moody garden pyramids. Only one chair but nice to sit out and see sunset. Beds have double pillows and duvets but are fairly hard. Walls are thin and you can hear road noise from the freeway but it is muted through the glass door.
Staff is very friendly and lobby has a fireplace, comfy chairs and tables for the included breakfast which consists of eggs, sausage, make your own waffles, fruit, yogurt, bagels and muffins, coffee, tea, juice and oatmeal. Also a mini store area, small indoor pool/hot tub and tiny workout room with two treadmills and a elliptical. Parking lot is small and it is on a one way street, but easy to get to once you figure out the back way in.
All in all a decent overnight stay and earns us Marriott points but I would look elsewhere if I were staying any longer to enjoy the island at the price we paid. Also, as others have stated, not near the beach but convenient enough if this doesn't matter.
