My family just returned from a weekend at the Marriott Gateway. We won our room through priceline bidding and felt we had paid a fair price for a 4* in Niagara. When I called the hotel to confirm our room, I opted to upgrade to a Superior Fallsview room for a fee, ($20/night - which I felt was reasonable).
-All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful.
-The wego stops right in front of the hotel.
-The view from the Superior Fallsview room we had was fantastic.
-The pool area was very clean and well attended to, (on both occasions we were at the pool there was someone there cleaning and a fellow even came to check the temperature and chemicals in the hot tub).
-The linens were a good quality and the beds were very comfortable.
-The parking fee of $20/night plus tax is steep for outdoor parking.
-There is a charge for wifi.
-The elevator is beyond slow - we had read the reviews prior to our stay and fully anticipated that this would be the case but we didn't expect it to be that bad. There was no way to fully prepare for this.... On the Sunday, we gave ourselves about 25 minutes to catch the elevator and we still ended up missing our bus to Clifton Hill, (which only comes every 40min on Sunday - we had to drive and pay for parking downtown). The frustration was evident among the visitors and staff at the hotel... If you add the time up over a weekend, you're probably wasting an hour or two waiting for the elevator.
-Although rated a four star, the room was far from 4* quality. There were stains on the floor and on the furniture and it did not appear to have been vacuumed. The decor was dated. The bathroom? It was an okay size...but again fairly outdated.
I don't think that we would return to this Marriott unless the elevator system was greatly improved. It is so detrimental to your vacation experience...and the fact that the hotel seems to 'nickel and dime' you for everything on top of it, (parking, wifi, expensive food options).
-Head over to Tony Roma's (next door) for their breakfast buffet. It was a very reasonable price - $28 plus a tip for 2 adults and a child. And the staff were amazing! We picked up to breakfast sandwiches (that were terrible) and a cinnamon roll for $18 at the Starbuck's in the lobby...you definitely get a better bang for your buck next door.
