I have stayed at this hotel often on business, and I have returned after about a six month absence. The renovations have been completed, and sadly my impression of the changes is that the Marriott has completely missed the mark. I had an extensive conversation with the GM of the hotel re the poor renovation execution, and he mentioned the hotel chain is targeting GEN XY. I took his comment to mean that things of value to older customers will not be a part of Marriott philosophy in the future, and I was disturbed enough by his comments to run the gist by my son and his wife who are definately of the GEN X persuasion. My son and daughter in law are 35 and 27 respectively and their feeling was that Marriott is all wet. For instance, there was NO place in the dining room to evade a giant screen TV or commotion, and the menu did not at all cater to persons with food allergies. There was no longer a safe in each room. Both my young persons said that a hotel that did not provide a quiet meal space was not something that they cared to patronize. What they wanted hotel wide was free internet, a safe in the room, and club facilities being open with extended hour and on weekends. I feel my youngsters are on the mark with their comments, and if Marriott wants to dumb down their facilities to this extent, they are NOT playing to the up-and-coming business traveler, but to persons looking for cheap. Marriott, if such is your intent, build a Motel 6. Do not wreck what had been a fine property with changes that are inimical to upscale customers.
