This hotel is not up to Marriott standards. The front desk staff informed us that the keys wouldn't work well, and they were correct. Sometimes it took 10 -12 tries to enter our rooms. One room had lukewarm water for the shower. The refrigerator is one room did not work at all, and the guest needed refrigeration for breast milk. She was told that they couldn't get her a refrigerator until the next day, and it never arrived. The staff was friendly, but the hotel is showing its age. As a guest that frequently stays at Marriott hotels, it was disappointing to select this hotel for my group and have so many small, but un-Marriott like issues.
I have nothing but great things to say about this hotel. Check-in was very easy,
and my impression after that was how clean everything was. The room was immaculate, and the bathroom looked as if he had never been used. The housekeeping staff obviously do a wonderful job. The bed was very comfortable, and I was impressed with the amenities in the room. I would suggest paying a little extra and booking a suite rather than a room. The bed in the suites is far enough away from the door that you don't hear any noise from the hall. My suite was in front of the elevator, and I never heard a sound. I was also impressed with the breakfast. It was far better than what I expected - hot scrambled eggs, sausage, oatmeal, and fresh fruit were just a few of the items offered. There were also two very nice ladies working the breakfast area, and they wanted to make sure that
everyone had what they needed. Overall, I was most impressed with every aspect of this hotel. I highly recommend it!
