We went to watch the Dana Point Harbor Christmas Boat parade and since the hotel is walking distance to the harbor, we decided to stay the night. We stayed in a pool view double which had a nice view of a park and the ocean. Everything was nice and clean. We had just stayed at a JW two weeks earlier and found that this Marriott was more of the JW quality - I'm sure the location contributed to this feeling. I loved that the location was convenient to walking to restaurants, the harbor area, parks, etc.
It was freezing so we didn't use the pool, but I thought it was kind of small for a beach area resort.
Service was excellent. Everyone we encountered had a smile and a greeting. Check out was at 11, but the front desk said not to worry about rushing. I thought that was nice.
We had the breakfast buffet at the Vue restaurant, and it was wonderful! I LOVE hotel breakfasts and this one was just excellent. The seafoood omelet was perfect with huge chunks of real crab and shrimp. I especially loved the assortment of fresh fruit and berries. The fresh-squeezed orange juice was also good. The view from the restaurant is beautiful as it overlooks the hotel's green landscape and the ocean is in the background. It was worth the $18.95 per person. My 5 year old was $8.95, but they didn't charge us for our 3 year old which was nice. Overall, a perfect breakfast.
I will definitely come back again - maybe in the summertime when we can enjoy the beach.
