This Marriott is not what it used to be. The pictures shown on line are not what it actually looks like. I think long range lens were used to make the pictures look better. For instance the rooms are not that large like shown; unless of course you can afford a suite. The pool area does not look inviting in person. The rooms do not have enough installation; guests bang on walls and floors. The dining room is not available all day. Last I heard they were no longer serving dinner. Even when the dining room is open; it needs to be upgraded. Their prices on the menu are outrageous compared to other nearby restaurants.
I have stayed at this hotel several times and I have found the front desk staff to not be overly helpful or courteous to guests. Also, they now charge for parking which is $15 per day. You are not allowed to park in the surface lot adjacent to Fashion Way. The mall has plenty of parking, however they have signs up that indicate no hotel parking; so you are forced to pay to park in the hotel garage.
The Del Amo Fashion Mall across the street has gone down hill the last several years. The mall needs to be remodeled and no one knows for sure when it is going to happen. They have very limited eating places within the mall except for the food court. The only high end stores they have in the mall is H&M, Forever 21 and Macy's. And there are three Macy's store in that mall.
The per night rate at this Marriott has gone up; it is almost $250 per night. They do have a lot of airline people that do stay at this hotel. Unless you have an expense account, you may want to rethink this. There are other nearby hotels that are not so expensive.
Basically, when you stay here you are paying for the Marriott name. I know quite a bit about this hotel; I have stayed here several times and I live in the area.
