The hotel is very nice and looks wonderful, but there were a few little things that let me down.
Overall, our stay was just fine, but I did find quite a bit of hair on our beds and in the shower. I'm not grossed out by this stuff, but I did find it to be a little more than the normal 1 hair here or there. I was also surprised to see what looked like a nut of some kind on the floor next to the trash can. Again nothing major, but it felt like, perhaps, that room was cleaned in a rush and not given the normal Marriott attention to detail.
There were two other things that were more of an annoyance than a problem, but it would definitely impact whether I choose to stay there again.
1: I was fairly surprised to see the 2-bed room was 2 full size beds, not queen size. I would expect a full service hotel like this to offer 2 queens.
2: $14.95 for wireless internet access. I do a lot of traveling for business and can't believe these hotels are actually still trying to charge for internet access when everyone has a smart phone they can use instead. At this stage of the tech game, give it up and offer complimentary wireless.
