“Sea Views”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

I booked and paid for an ocean view but on checking in I was told no ocean view room was available; as I booked this room 3 months earlier this was just wrong!
This is a large convention type hotel; too commercial for my tastes.

This is a great hotel! The convenience to the convention center is amazing. Plus this property is in walking distance to the Gas Lamp and other parts of downtown SD! If you are luck enough to get a room with a view of the Marina... Sit back and just take in the sites! All and I mean all the staff was very friendly and accommodating! Can't wait to go back!

Everything is perfect, location is very good, room is clean and staff are very friendly. The bay view is just stunning! A tip is to ride the Marriott ferry to Coronado Island. Check with front desk for the schedule. The ferry is located right behind the hotel. The New Children's museum is right across the street.

I returned returned from a four day conference at this hotel and found the hotel to be much nicer than many hotels of its ilk. For starters, the rooms are well appointed and exceptionally clean. Although I would have preferred a stocked minibar, the absence of in-room refreshments was no big deal because room service was efficient and there were plenty of dining venues in the lobby, including several order-to-go restaurants, a coffee shop, a bar and sit-down restaurant, and a well stocked shop. While I did not get to use them, the pools looked well-maintained and beautiful, and the service throughout the hotel was top-notch. This would be an excellent hotel to bring the family while attending a conference, as there is plenty for everyone to do. The only missing component was a spa, which is an interesting omission in my view but one I could live without for a brief stay.

I recently stayed at the San Diego Marriott for a business convention. My room was spacious, well appointed and very clean. The hotel is in an excellent location-connected to the San Diego Convention Center, near the Gaslamp District and Petco Field. Be sure to take a stroll along the waterfront path!

I have stayed here a few times for our company Christmas party, but it has been at least 4 years, if not more. My husband and I decided to get away overnight for our anniversary and we bid on a hotel and won this one.

Since I was here last they did quite a bit of remodeling, this hotel is beautiful! We got a city view king room in the north tower. It was at the end of the hall and had a whole wall of windows and a balcony. It was such a neat room, and so immaculate.

We did use the jacuzzi out by the pool. It was nice and hot on a cool night. The pool area here is so lush and pretty. I would love to come back here in the summer.

This hotel is in a great location next to the convention center, right on a marina. It is a short walk to Seaport Village where there are shops and restaurants.

Even though we stayed only one night we had such a great stay. I can't say enough about this hotel.

Room Tip: The North Tower has balconies, south tower does not. City view rooms are a bit noisy with the trolly...

The SD Marriott Marquis is a beautiful hotel. We were on the 25th floor with a view of the world. It was a clear, beautiful fall day which added to the ambiance. The room was large, clean, huge windows for an outstanding view; modern décor. The bed was comfortable with feel-good linens. It had a spacious bathroom with all the amenities. There was a large workable desk area. I was able to keep the room at a rather cool temperature, not always possible at hotels (even though they give you a thermostat.) We did not eat at the hotel restaurants. The only disappointment was lack of parking. Few spaces were open and they were reserved for boat owners. I had to circle the entire parking area to find an open space at the far end of the parking lot.
