“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

We booked a 1 bedroom king suite and they didnt have any when we checked in. They gave us two adjoining rooms and an awesome rate! Michelle and the rest of the crew were awesome and we are very appreciative!

Hi Steve R,

Thank you so much for your review. I truly apologize that we did not have your one bedroom suite available. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to accomodate the adjoining suites to make up for it. The associates were excited to hear about your comments at our daily meeting today, especially Michelle. Thank you so much for staying with us. We hope to see you again the next time you visit the San Diego area.

Sincerely,

Evan Haft

I stayed here for two nights on business. The staff was great and very helpful with questions on restaurants and arranging transportation to the airport for me. My room was very quiet and clean. The breakfast was very good and always well stocked. The workout facilities were clean and the equipment was very nice. I would definitely stay again if I am in the area.

We are big fans of all marriott properties. We have not been disappointed. This hotel was great ! Awesome customer service, comfortable large rooms. Would stay here again!
This hotel was easy to find and not far from the freeway. Secure parking was a comfort, we traveled with our bikes and didn't have to worry about them on our stay here.

I cannot praise enough the wonderful staff at this hotel, all of whom seemed genuinely interested to make our stay here wonderful... Upon check-in a lovely lady named Michelle went to great lengths to find us a room that suited our requirements...She was FANTASTIC! We also loved the in-house dining on some weeknights, made the place feel more homely than a hotel..The ladies in the kitchen worked hard to create something different for breakfast each morning which was terrific when you are travelling as often just get the same/same at hotels. The apartment was just lovely with a terrific kitchennette and having 4 nights here was a great stay rather than just being in a hotel room. Only 1 negative, it is not at all close to the beach which the photos and wording really alluded it was just across from the beach, more like a 30 minute walk to the water unfortunately.

Room Tip: Request a room on the 'quiet side'.

Stayed at this property a short while back and can not begin to explain how awesome it was. The rooms were well appointed and very clean. There was even a personal note written on one of the notepads from the housekeeping girl to enjoy our stay and to feel free to ask for anything. The 3 most awesome things about this hotel though are, tons of free parking, free wifi, and a free "happy hour" offering complimentary snacks and beer. Matt at the front desk provided excellent service and the general manager Illana was just outstanding. Every Marriott hotel out there should look into hiring a general manager like her!!! This place is a gem!!!! Hope you enjoy your stay there as much as I did!!!

I enjoy cooking, so the 1 bedroom suite with full kitchen was just what i was looking for. When i didnt have the right tools or supplies on hand the front desk and cooking staff (Elizabeth, Amber, and Cathleen) went out of their way to assist me. Everyone I had contact with was pleasant and truely wished to provide the best stay possible. If possible, I would stay here on my next trip to San Diego.

My stay in this hotel was pretty standard, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, everything worked. To me, what makes this hotel particularly convenient is that everything is so centralized. It is a high-rise building and has adequate and ample free underground parking. The access is easy, you only need your room key, and there is no charge. The rooms are nothing extraordinary. The hotel itself is very new, so all the fixtures are sparkling clean and fully functional. I would certainly stay here again.
