I debate on giving this hotel 3 stars instead of 2, but really for this class hotel, it's pretty run down.
The lobby is nice and well appointed and the staff are very friendly, which is great. I arrived a bit early and my room wasn't ready. They took my mobile number and said they'd call when it was ready. After waiting around for several hours, I never recieved call... so I stopped back by the desk and asked when my room would be ready... they said it was ready. Thanks for the call! Not like I had been traveling all day and wanted to put my luggage away or anything!
From there, things kind of went down hill. The carpet is looking a bit worn throughout the hotel, it's obviously seen better days. Upon entering the room, it's clearly aging, but not unreasonably so. Nothing is broken or chipped or anything like that, but the fixtures and decorations are clearly from a different era and not in a good way. Then there's the thin walls... lets talk about that.
I can hear everyone moving up and down the hallway, stomp stomp stomp! The door has a giant blade of light under it when the lights are off (no wonder I can hear everything!) which lights up the room at night. I mentioned the thin walls... as I write this, I am listening to the guy (presumably a guy, because I don't want to meet a woman that can make a sound like that) in the next room snore away. Yes, I can hear someone in the next room snoring, that's how thin these walls are. I can hear people talking above me as well.
For the price of this hotel, and the fact that it's a Marriott, I expected a lot better. I usually stay in Starwood hotels and never really have a problem, so maybe I'm just used to higher quality hotels, but I remember Marriotts being much better quality than this... Staying in another Marriott in Hong Kong next month, so we'll compare the two and see how they fare.
As it goes, though, I would definitely not recommend this hotel unless you get a fantastic deal on the price.
