I’m a Platinum Elite member. I tried to check in here this afternoon and was treated very badly. I was told that both of my work (Visa) credit cards were declined as were both of my personal cards. The front desk person made a scene and told me that I’d have to prepay in cash or walk. I called my bank and was told it was an error on the merchant’s end, although both this person and her manager refused to check into this. I pointed out my status with Marriott and asked if I could check in and then figure out what was happening, but I was told no. Unless I could pay I could not check in. About 25 minutes later, the staff person realized the same issue was happening to others around me. I was finally told to go ahead and check in while they investigated. I was later told that the error was with Marriott and not my fault. I was late for my evening appointment and very upset about this experience. Too bad my 300+ nights with Marriott mean nothing when there are CC problems. They were fine with turning me away. And the male manager walked by and overheard what was happening but didn’t even stop to see if he could help. I’d expect this at a Holiday Inn but not at a Marriott. I’ll never stay here again. In addition to rude staff, it’s old and rundown.
Unfortunately we experienced issues with the room’s hot water, we were moved from that room to another room which had noise issues. We ended up having 3 different rooms. The rooms appeared clean and were modern enough. Hallway carpets may need to be steam cleaned; they have a musty smell.
