One thing that I usually enjoy about Marriott is that I usually always enjoy my stay, whether it's in a Category 2 joint or a Category 4 palace. After reading the rave reviews about this particular place, I was looking forward to my business trip to Houston.
The location is great; not even 10 minutes from the airport. When I arrived late at night and got to my room, I pulled the covers back and saw a huge silverfish crawling on one of the pillows. Ok, not comforting, but not a deal breaker, either. Bugs find their way into even the cleanest hotel.
The next night, I went to the gym only to find that the floor was damp from a water leak and the place reeked of mildew. At dinner, I went to get a salad and the lettuce looked like it had been sitting in the sun all day. I was starting to see a pattern. The next day, breakfast consisted of eggs mixed with cut up hot dogs from the night before. Yuck. My mom used to do that trick with leftovers when I was a kid. The staff seemed complacent and did not talk much, not even to smile or say hi in the hall.
I have stayed in dozens and dozens of Marriotts, and this one ranks in the bottom 5%. I don't know what the other reviewers saw in this place.
