We have been Marriott Rewards members for several years and have stayed at many properties. This Marriott is in a great location so we've stayed here before. We came for an overnight get away. There are wonderful shops and restaurants around the block. There is public transportation just across the street.
In general we find Marriott to be more comfortable than some of the other chains. But we do feel that the quality of the accomodations has decreased in the past year; paper cups, thin bedding, worn capeting and patched walls. The hairdryer was hidden in the tiny closet. We always have trouble getting onto the wireless. This was our first winter stay and we found some problems due to the season:
1. The air unit in our room was very noisy and loud. When we turned it off the room immediately became chilly. It was so noisy that we kept turning it on and off. If it hadn't been so late we would have asked for another room.
2. The blankets on our bed were completely inadequate for winter. There was one thin quilt under a paper thin white bedspread. We did call for more blankets and received one new one, just as thin and inadequate from housekeeping. I slept with my down vest and socks on!
Would I stay here again? Yes, this is a great location. The staff is friendly and try to be helpful. I do wish that things could be upgraded in the rooms for the future. As members and seniors we receive a reasonable rate for the city. Any higher and I would look for another hotel.
