This was our host hotel for a half marathon. Listed on the race details was shuttle to the race start when I checked in the person at the desk said "there's no shuttle. You were misinformed." I asked about late checkout, as I really wanted a shower after running a half marathon, and I had been told when I made the reservation if I showed my Marriott Rewards Number I could get a 1pm checkout instead of the standard 12pm. He said "no. we don't have anymore late checkout" The race director was able to arrange a shuttle and the manage was able to finagle a 12:15 checkout for me, but it was incredibly stressful. At least 3 of the other runners said 2 other front desk people were also extremely rude to them as well about the shuttle and check out times. I would definitely look for a different hotel next time.
The room was not as clean as I would have liked, there was a sticker - like someone had taken it off their clothes and stuck it to the bathroom wall -so if housekeeping missed that, who knows what else they missed when they were cleaning? And to top it off just before I fell asleep I found a centipede in my bed! I killed it. but it was so disturbing.
I have received no follow up from the management, but I know why I am a Hilton Honors member. I will avoid Marriott like the plague. Rude.unresponsive and uncaring.
