Very friendly staff. Room was very nice and clean. Our room had a fireplace. Wonderful location with easy on - easy off access. Front desk staff were very friendly and the free breakfast offered many choices.
Extremely disappointed! Reserved room over 6 months in advance, for family weekend trip with children. Specifically chose Marriott property and Residence Inn for suite with kitchen. Was told 2 days before arrival that room unavailable due to ‘high volume and unforeseen maintenance issues’ and suggestion was to rebook at non-Marriott property in standard room (no suite, no kitchen); confirmed unacceptable and reservation cancelled. Loyal Marriott member and have never had a room unavailable at such short notice. Cannot even believe this happened and beyond disappointed and frustrated. Beware to all booking - just because you have a reservation doesn’t mean you will have a room and your family trip might be completely ruined!
