Friendly and professional staff
Guests have found plenty of reasons to praise the staff here, often commenting that they were on the receiving end of a warm welcome and friendly service throughout their stay. Guests have found the staff is approachable and knowledgeable about the local area.
Clean and spacious pool
The pool has proved popular with guests, with many describing it as clean and well maintained. Guests also say the pool is of a reasonable size, so you’ll be able to swim lengths as opposed to just splash about. The temperature of the water is said to be just right.
Wi-Fi may disappoint
A number of guests have had problems with the Wi-Fi here, with the typical complaint being that it’s so slow it’s barely useable. Even those Marriott members with free enhanced Wi-Fi have complained, so it seems that the problem is not limited to the free standard service.
Mixed feedback about rooms
While it’s unlikely that you’ll encounter any major problems in the rooms, guests have sometimes commented on the overall maintenance and the cleanliness of the bathrooms. Also, some rooms, particularly those near the elevators and housekeeping station, are noisy.
Guests very rarely find the rates here low and while they can usually stomach the nightly rates, they often find the extra costs for breakfast and parking rather frustrating. You will need to leave room in your budget to cover these essentials.
