Marriot hotels guarantee a qualitative and glamorous status. Rooms beautiful, makes you feel special. Excellent breakfast for all tastes, amazing buffet for lunch. Of course extremelly expensive. Personnel should be more flexible and willing to assist. They are to have under mind a regulations book and can't cope without it.

Had there been someplace outside - a pool, a deck a rooftop - someplace to relax, I would have given the hotel 5 stars and said it's great. Other than that, the hotel is excellent.
