How to Get There
I regret that I used 100,000 points to stay at this hotel! Yes, it is a beautiful piece of property, ideally located, but it is overpriced. Either that or Marriott inflates the cost of the room so that you have to use that many points, but I still had to pay $35 a day for valet parking, $25 a day for the mandatory “activity”? Fee and the $53 in taxes on the $900-1,000 hotel cost!!!! So my “free” room cost me another $173!!! You get one free keurig cup of coffee in your room and 2 small bottles of water, if you want more well, it’ll cost you. We got your standard room with two queen beds, and although I’d requested a room with a view, what I got was a room with sliding glass doors that did not open to a slab of cement with another half a wall of cement looking over a building under construction! I wrote to them about this asking to at the very least get the $ I paid them $173. But they only offered 10,000 points back. They can keep them as far as I am concerned, it will be a long long time before I stay at another Marriott hotel!
First of all, the property itself is great. The location is superb. The view is spectacular. There is a lot to like about this property. The breakfast is the concierge's lounge is fantastic.
So, what's not to like? It is pricey. But that was expected.
But the evening servings in the concierge's lounges were pitiful. Which is very surprising considering how well they do breakfast. You have to walk to the bar, purchase your drinks and carry them back to the concierge's lounge. And the evening hors d'oeuvres were are poor as any Marriott I have been at.
Finally, the TV selection was very, very limited. and you could not watch the American League championship between the Yankees and Astros in your room. If you wanted to watch the game, you had to go to the bar. I was quite disappointed in this limited TV selection.
Finally, it is valet parking only. And it is not cheap.
Overall, the good outweighed the bad, and I would recommend this hotel. But there were some noticeable shorting comings.
The hotel is very pricey. I used points for my stay but for anyone paying $522 + taxes + parking, the hotel leaves a lot to be desired. Rooms are small and do not include a chair which is something unusual for a Marriott. We made the mistake or ordering food at the Spiff Bar. It was very expensive and the quality was deplorable. I made my remark to the front desk receptionist at checkout and except for the word "sorry", she did nothing to credit my bill. Breakfast was also mediocre. I have stayed at many other Marriott properties (to name a few: Park Lane Marriott, London; Paris Marriott; Vienna Marriott; Munich Marriott; Marriott World Center, Orlando; Delray Beach Marriott) and everyone of them exceeded my expectations. These guys should learn a lesson or two from these properties.
