The Good

  • Innovations
  • Benefits
Marriott brand hotels and resorts are focused on the idea, "travel brilliantly". This idea is centered on innovation. These innovations for guests include:
  • Mobile check-in. Mobile guest services have arrived at Marriott Hotels. That includes being able to check-in and out from their mobile app at all of locations around the world.
  • Modern-day meetings. Marriott's new meeting spaces feature naturally lit studios and social spaces to maximize multi-tasking.
  • Marriott Mobile App allows guests to ask for anything, anytime during their stay.
  • Bartenders in Residence is in the prototype phase, with a goal to connect local talent, local bartenders and local flavors and bring them into a Marriott hotel.
  • Teleportation. Marriott has a prototype of 4-D journey devices to give guests a virtual travel experience to their destination of choice.
  • New, smartly designed ergonomic guestrooms in the pipeline.
  • Flexible, tech-savvy work spaces
  • Goji kitchen + Bar set to open in Asia in 2014 and 2015. It is a dynamic restaurant designed for the modern traveler with spaces that transform from breakfast to lunch and dinner.
  • Healthy Vending machines containing locally grown organic fruits and vegetables.
The Marriott hotel staff is globally known for being very friendly. Along with the basic amenities such as free WiFi and buffet breakfasts, Marriott encourages guests to "co-create" with them by submitting fresh ideas for the hotels to implement. Hotels are also typically located in convenient locations near airports, restaurants, major highways and shopping strips.

The Bad

  • Additional fees
The resorts are all-around enjoyable, but guests were less-than thrilled with the hotel's additional fees:
  • $27/day resort free which allows you a beach chair, umbrella, towels each day, as well as
  • Free drink must be a signature cocktail-
  • Daily parking fee. Visitors end up paying less to park than a guest paying to stay in the hotel I believe it was $27/day as well, pathetic!
  • Resort Pool was always lukewarm, even in 90+ degrees
  • Breakfast on premises is expensive with $20 for 2 eggs with one meat.
  • Beach lovers were a bit disappointed with the amount of scattered seaweed, hotel needs to do better cleaning it up.
  • Average resort with above average prices
  • Rooms were a little dated but very clean
gavel

The Bottom Line

Marriott Hotels & Resorts is the flagship leading brand of Marriott International. With its "travel brilliantly" campaign, Marriott offers many cutting edge innovations, aiming to be the leading global premium hotel brand among Generation X and Y travelers. One of Marriott's popular guest amenities is their THANN specially- crafted aromatherapy items. Their hotels have a solid reputation with strong customer loyalty. Marriott hotels are located in convenient locations for travel, food, and recreation and shopping. To some, Marriott's resorts have average amenities with above- average prices. Rooms in some hotels are a little dated but very clean. There are also additional resort fees for guests. Despite the negatives, the staff is very pleasant and friendly.

Marriott Hotels & Resorts are our first choice when needing a location to spend time unwinding in a vacation-like setting, or an extended stay. They are almost everywhere where we travel, elegant and extremenly comfortable. They are well priced within the areas they serve and a value when compared to the amenities offered by their properties. They have things like free WiFI where it is often charged for by others, both great city and remote locations and really good restaurants . Their "free" breakfast, in many places, rivals what you can get in a breakfast restaurant and the in-hotel services such as health clubs and pools, make them a great value, even though you may pay a little more for them.

Most of my experiences involving Marriott Hotels and Resorts have been in the Residence Inn. I truly love the Residence Inn. I love their combined Hot and Cold Breakfast offered each morning. This is really an. added. value to an already reasonable hotel price. When you are there on a Monday and Tuesday there is usually some sort of snack type food offered in the evening hours. A real bonus. The rooms are clean and arranged in such a way as to be very accommodating to the. business traveler. I love the oven, stove, refrigerator and plenty of kitchen storage space. These allow me to purchase my own food and create my own meals to eat while I am there. What a great value as a hotel overall.

We have stayed at several Marriott Hotels and have always enjoyed our stay. The receptionists have always been so helpful and patient. Also, at least at the ones we have stayed at, there was always a restaurant available for breakfast! The cost of the rooms are reasonable.

I've stayed in a variety of airbnbs, hostels, and hotels over the years and I have ALWAYS been highly impressed with Marriott. They are always my first choice of hotels. I have stayed there many times with my family. They are extremely clean, offer great services and amenities and I always look forward to staying there, whether it is inside or outside the US.

I have never had a negative experience with Marriott, except with one of the brands when they wouldn't accept a gift card in Page, AZ. When I travel, I basically look first at Marriott Hotels because the quality is consistent everywhere. The only thing is this: be aware of what type of Marriott you are choosing and what services they offer. For example, some brands do not have breakfast. It's worth knowing the difference across the different brands under the Marriott name.

My family has always had great, reliable, quality service from every Marriott hotel we've stayed at. Rooms are always nice with clearly updated amenities such as newer televisions and modern furniture. Most have pools and free continental breakfast--always with the best selection of food of any hotel we've stayed at. Great service, great value--you can't go wrong with Marriott, in my opinion.

The hotel rooms are nice and clean and the staff are very helpful. If you are staying for a while, bring a swimsuit and take a nice swim or sit in the jacuzzi. The morning breakfasts are nice and there is a good variety of food whether you want sweet, healthy, or hearty.

as a gold member, I travel with Marriott for business and pleasure, and know that I can have a consistent experience everywhere I go, from the JW in Chicago, to the Springhill Suites in St George. I appreciate that they know me as a gold member, know my preferences, and when I was there last. Bonvoy provides a great app to manage my bookings, and check my points to see how many points ai have to spend for my upcoming vacations.

When you book with Marriott you know what you are getting yourself into. I like that there is a standard of cleanliness that can be found at different areas of the world. Marriott is always high quality and provides a good experience no matter where you are.

I travel a lot for business and my current employer’s preferred hotel provider is Marriott. The rooms are always clean and comfortable and the beds are amazing! Best sleep ever. I have been a little disappointed with the upkeep at some of the recently acquired Sheraton properties but I’m confident they’ll be brought up to Marriott standards.

I have a whole lot of great things to say about Marriott Hotels & Resorts. We have for years enjoyed staying at their hotels and have always found them so nice and clean.

Usually i prefer Marriott Hotels when i travel but during 2020 i stayed in a hotel that was really dirty. I brought cleaners and wiped down everything. The carpets and floors had visible dirt, especially around the edges. I only give 4 stars because my experience in the past was better but during Covid times, they really drop the ball and clean a lot less. They claim to clean more carefully but in reality, they only cleaned the rooms during your stay if you stayed longer than a few days. Good thing i brought cleaning supplies with me.

We have used Marriott Hotels for years! My husband stays there exclusively when he travels for business. For the most part I'm always impressed with cleanliness and service, however, since Covid began we have stayed in Marriott's 4 times and have been disappointed 3/4 of those stays. Front desk service has not been as friendly and cleaning service is mostly unavailable. Hoping future stays improve.

Marriott is always a go-to place to stay for our family! The rooms and bathrooms are clean and tidy, and the staff members are always happy, eager, and willing to help with anything we need. I love the way they rotate what is on the menu for the complementary breakfast so that you can have some variety when you are staying for several days.

My mother has been a Marriott Rewards member for many years now and this has been our go-to Hotel or Resort for every single trip or vacation. Every stay has gone extremely smoothly and staff is always so accommodating to specific requests such as early check-in or questions about local restaurants/activities. I have always appreciated how clean and neat every hotel we've stayed at has been and I am sure my family will continue using Marriott Hotels for a long time to come!

Marriott is the number one brand I go too when needing a hotel. I took my family to a nearby Marriott Springhill Suites for a mini staycation for my daughters birthday in August. The rooms slept 6 and were pretty big for a hotel room. The things they have implemented to keep there customers safe during COVID were great. I felt safe and had no problems. The outdoor pool was open and the layout of the pool and hot tub made it so fun for my kids.

We try to stay in Marriotts whenever we travel. We have found them to be the cleanest and most well-kept hotels. The Towne Place Suites are my favorite ones and they always have a good complimentary continental breakfast that has a lot of variety. Once, we had a family medical emergency while on vacation and were forced to stay in a Towne Place Suites, several hours away from our home, for two weeks. The staff was so kind to us, giving us a discounted rate and even moving us into a larger suite because of the terrible stress we were going through. That was at the Towne Place Suites in St. George, Utah.

We stayed at one of the new Marriot suites. It was very modern and we found the layout of the room a little strange. But it was clean and well kept. The shower door wasn't aligned properly and a pool of water formed on the bathroom floor after each use. Used up quite a few towel mopping up the water. Still we had a nice stay.

The Marriott may seem like a typical hotel but your stay there will be more than spectacular. Yes, it is a popular chain but the services are unimaginable.

I recently went on vacation and stayed at a Marriott Hotel in the Clearwater, Florida area. It was during COVID-19 and I was pleasantly surprised by the precautions that were in place to ensure we had a safe stay. We were also glad to have some of the comforts of home with a warm breakfast that was prepared and served in a safe way. We almost forgot about the coronavirus craziness because our stay almost felt like normal. We always know we can trust a Marriott hotel and it's why we try to book one whether we're going far or staying close to home for a staycation.
