My work took me on a quick turn around to Lisbon, Portugal for two nights. As usual, I looked up a Marriott property as I am a lifetime Platinum and they are always dependable and easy to maneuver, even in an other country. The Fontecruz Autograph Collection hotel came up as a Marriott property.
I was pleasantly surprised at the boutique feel of the place, great location and nice service but they have a rule from the "big man" (I assume general manager) that the air conditioning cannot be below 20 degrees Celsius. On a humid summer day that is not cool and I spend two nights sweating with no way to sleep. I tried opening the windows but there was a concert going on with a huge market and the noise was worse than the heat.
As a very frequent traveler, something as routine as a nice cool room is not to much to ask for. I really hate when hotels do things and say it is for the environment when it is for cash savings for them. There are many other things a hotel can do to go green without jeopardizing the comfort of the guests.
This hotel in no way lives up to the Marriott standards and I would never return unless they put new standards in place
