but it could be SO much better. Its an old property thats was redone some time ago. Many of the touches are very nice but there are a few little things that should be much better for $400+ a night.
The shower head was the worst head of any Marriott I have stayed in thru the last decade. Maybe it was low water pressure but the (adjustable) head barely sprayed anything outside of about a 6" cone pattern.
The wallpaper was peeling in the bathroom. In many places.
Mold in the caulk in the shower.
The shower door would not stay closed, so water go all over.
The door had about a 1.5" gap under it that I had to stuff a towel under so I didnt hear every noise in the hall.
Breakfast buffet was quite good, but with limited options.
Staff was friendly.
I am a Platinum and asked for a view but only got a low floor back corner room. Hmmmm.
No concierge lounge at this property.
