As you can see from my other contributions, i stay at a lot of Marriott properties. So ii have a good knowledge of whats new old and on its way to change.
These old style "Condo" RI's are up to 25 years old. So it's no wonder that some of them are showing their age.
Furniture in our building 7 rooms was getting warn. Closet doors don't slide well anymore, dresser drawers don't slide out right, or slide all the way out into an 8 year olds lap.
When last we visited, the place was winterized, so this visit the pool is open the patio is in use. The water is clean and warm, Jacuzzi is blowing bubbles fine. The staff offers evening meals Monday to Wednesday, Seems like a cookout of burgers and brats every Wed, a mix of pasta or chicken dishes the other two nights.
Breakfast is the usual assortment of continentals, the scrambled eggs are fine, the potato selection seems to rotate every three days, and so does the choice of meat. Now this doesn't seem like a big deal, but if you are here for 7 days to a month, it makes all the difference.
We had two lower level single rooms with queen beds and pull out couches, again these were not purchased yesterday, but everything in the kitchen was clean and nothing smelled.
I am completely spoiled by flat panels in even the most cut rate hotels, so the tube TV without the ability to plug my Laptop in and play a movie for the kids was a MINUS. Also the on demand box was shorting out, they came and fixed it twice.
We stayed 7 nights. So we had a chance to test drive the staff and the property. A large mall, grocery, and 3 levels of dining are all within 5minutes. The freeway is out in the front yard, so you are on it and back into town in a minute.
We are 10 minutes from the gym my kids came to camp at, but there is another RI 10 minutes farther away in Blue Ash, given the choice we'll try that property next time.
Everything is clean, the staff was 95% friendly and they all tried real hard.
