Worst hotel experience here. Should be classified as a motel. I'm surprised Marriott would put their name on this property. Got a double room to share with my adult son. The bathroom door didn't close fully. I called customer service to see it. The guy said it's made that way and just deal with it. The shower and sink wouldn't drain and water pooled up to my ankles in the shower. The floor in the bathroom would flood so towels were all used to sop up water. Drybar shower gel, shampoo and conditioner all empty. Nothing to hang a towel on. Two electrical sockets in room. No charging ports available in the room. There must be a lot of theft at this property because the room was bare minimum without any decorations. Room with seedy and dirty. Horrible property.

I never write negative reviews but think one is warranted in this case. The website and reviews are generally positive which drew me in to book at the hotel. It was a very bad experience. The area lacks amenities. The heating unit in my room popped all night long. And, I didn’t have hot water in the morning. All this for $300/night. I checked out early and moved to a different hotel. Marriott needs to take a hard look at this property. Beware.
