Reviewed August 29, 2011

We arrived 28th August to find out that the property is no longer managed by Marriott. We had stayed 3 nights at the Edition last week before going to the North Shore. As the Edition, we had a wonderful stay. It was our bad luck to arrive when the hotel was in transition. They did not bother to tell us until after check-in although we noticed something was wrong with security guards about. No welcome lemonades or refreshing towels either. It was VERY disorganized - staff unkempt and mostly clueless. Wifi went out last night and who knows when it will be restored. The hotel now has an overall bad vibe - not the experience we were expecting at all. Too many management tpes running about openly discussing this hostile takeover and their problems. Sad situation!

I arrived on Sun 8/28/11 on a one night points stay (Marriott). They told me that at 7am that morning the hotel dropped out of Marriott's branding and changed names to "The Modern Hotel". They were in complete disarray, however were very nice and while they did not honor my Marriott point stay they did offer me a complementary night. (I was only staying one night there). Also they did not have a lot of staff or services and many employees did not report to work. Beware if you have a Marriott reward reservation coming up as they will not honor it. I did hear other guests saying that it was a last minute forced change of name etc.
