Poor customer focus,
A5891LXrobertg

I am a gold member and this place failed to deliver
1. There was no heat in my room for two nights. I had to use an external heater for third

2. They got the billing all wrong. I asked them to split charges on two separate credit cards. Well they split charges but put on same credit card

3. I never got my points for the stay. Went to someone else

4. I asked Billing to fix 2&3. They promised to get back to me. Never did

5. Gym stinks. Food is barely adequate. Waters hard to obtain ( was told to go to gym and bring a cup)

5. When i called Courtyard Marriott a second time to fix this, saying i needed a bill to me at my home address, showing the amount i paid, they again sent me bill with wrong address and zero balance but no proof of what i paid. I was frustrated so the customer care agent decided to hang up on me. Great customer focus!

My wife and I visited our son in Cambridge and stayed here. The location was very nice - beautiful views of the Charles. We had terrific weather - perfect for walks along the River. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

Great Location, Great views, But HVAC problems

We travelled to Boston Cambridge for the Head of the Charles Regatta. Because of the size of the event and the great loaction for the race, The hotel's rates were $400 night with prepayment required. We did get a high floor with a riverfront view but that's where the good parts of our stay ended. I was not greeted as a Lifetime Titanium Elite Bonvoy member, nor was I offered a complementary breakfast coupon, although one was given for our three night stay when I asked. Our room was over &* degrees and the air conditioner was not operable. We had to turn off the heating unit, and thank goodness the window could be opened. The breakfast room and food were acceptable, but the service at the bar was poor.
