This is the 3rd or 4th time I've stayed at this property in the past 10 years. Each and every visit was wonderful, however, this visit really topped them all and elevated my stay. In planning this trip I was undecided on which of the two Marriott properties to chose from, the Marriott Waterside or Portsmouth Renaissance. After calling both hotels and speaking with the front desk personnel, I was convinced by the Portsmouth Renaissance that they would strive to make my trip the most memorable and I must say, they delivered on their promise. I definitely made the right choice!! The hotel and water views were picturesque. The room was clean and quite quiet. At no time did I experience disturbance and noise from guests in other rooms. I have to say I think this hotel definitely did a great job in hiring their staff. All staff, from the Guest Manager to the restaurant staff, to the parking attendants, ensured everything was in order and resolved immediately any concerns or issues that may have cropped up. They definitely succeeded in making me feel "special" and like a "VIP". Corporate should feel very proud of the success of this hotel in promoting, implementing, and meeting the Marriott customer service philosophy and mission statement. My one and only complaint is the restaurant could stand to elevate their menu.
