After staying in four lesser developed Countries, I was looking very forward the comforts and amenities of a Marriott before heading to the US. I wanted to relax, use the wifi and watch English TV so I was rather surprised to learn that the only free wifi available was at the reception desk which became rather crowded and noisy with customers checking in and other customers in the small area trying to use the wifi and talking on their phones. In-room wifi was at a premium. What is odd is that wifi is free everywhere in Europe except the Marriott. We had free wifi in the airport, train stations and even on the metro bus. Also, I am used to having two sheets on my bed-flat and fitted so I was a little dismayed to learn there was no fitted sheet. The flat sheet was over the mattress cover so you had to lie against the comforter which made me uncomfortable since most hotels do not wash comforters after every customer. Breakfast was 16 pound (about $27) US for pastries and a juice. Lastly, the maid did not replace our bath products. One small bottle of shampoo for four showers does not last. I guess I expected a lot more for a hotel that rents for about $250-$275/night US. Fortunately, I used award points for my stay. I do have to mention though that the staff was excellent. I had difficulty accessing and printing a tour ticket. You had to pay to use the business center printer and internet. The attendant called the tour company for me, had the paperwork emailed to the hotel and printed it for me. I should also mention that I am sure Marriott would have provided another sheet or more shampoo had I asked but for $250 a night, I really did not feel I needed to ask.
