I booked three nights with points through Chase Ultimate Travel and all went well in that regard. I arrived at 12:10, early again, hoping that one, just one room ,would be available to rest my weary bones after a long drive. But I was told that nothing was available and nothing , repeat NOTHING, would be available until 2:30 or 3:00 PM. The young lady saiid I could leave my luggage though which I chose not to do. Instead I drove around for half an hour and finally came upon a McDonalds where I spent over an hour. I returned to the hotel at 2:30 and did gain entry for a room. Now its important to remember that I was booked for 3 nights An inspection of the room revealed that there was no soap. Not even one of those tiny bars one usually gets in an no star type place. The next morning I discovered that there was one, ONE, regular coffee pod for the coffee maker and two , TWO creamers. And there were two of those cardboard cups. Three nights already! There not being a cart anywhere in sight , a trip to the front desk was made and , after digging through a drawer , the lady on duty handed me 3 pods. The following day I needed ice and couldn’t find the ice machine so I asked the cleaning person where it was and he pointed down the hall and said something that I didnt understand but I headed down the hall and never did find the ice machine after walking around for awhile. Fortunately the room has a small fridge which served its purpose.. Due to a family situation I had to check out after 2 nights. The lady at the front desk said that any refund or credit could only be arranged with Chase. When I called Chase I was told that only the property could arrange something I was put on hold while the Chase rep called the hotel and when she returned on the line ,she said that the manager at the property said it was not refundable. There is a $20 per night parking charge to be aware of. And the restaurant and bar were only open for breakfast LESSONS LEARNED. Most of the time you are not going to be able to check in early, especially with chain properties. And bring your own soap, coffee makings etc.

Room was fine- other than the fact that there was one bar of soap for the whole room; one coffee cup for two people and very limited toiletries. After a full day of touring came back to the room (8:00PM) expecting to shower, get a good night's sleep and get an early start the next day. The room was not cleaned, not made up nor were there any clean towels, etc. Called the front desk, spoke with Kathleen (mgr) and asked that the room be correctly made up. Kathleen first blamed covid for new rules, them blame me for not noticing some writing on a bulletin board in the lobby. Kathleen did have the room made up about an hour later after we went down to the lobby personally to again complain. Kathleen told us if we left our home phone number someone would call the following Tuesday to discuss compensation for all the inconveniences. The call never came. Did Kathleen just want end the conversation by promising something she knew would not come to fruition? It worked except for this review. It would have been nice to be told of the "new rules" upon check-in. Also they charge you $20..00 each day for parking.

We’ve stayed here many many times because the kids love the pool/game room. We arrived to check in at 4 to find a waiting room of guests waiting because the rooms were not ready. I brought the kids to the pool/game room and a sign said it was closed Monday-weds. I checked the hotel website prior to booking to make sure it was open and there was no notes saying it had limited hours. We booked this hotel just for the game room.

They charge you $60.00 a day for parking. It would have been nice if this was listed somewhere. Then when I tried to call and get a receipt it was a nightmare. I called 4 times and no one will send me the receipt for the parking. The pool wasn't open during my stay, the least they could have done was wave the parking since the lot was empty. Plus it appeared they were allowing outsiders to park there. I tried corporate number and was on hold for an hour no answer.....stay at the Marriot it's worth the extra money.

I bought a pre-paid no-refund stay at the hotel for a conference in late March. Enter coronavirus and the conference is cancelled. I would have had to just absorb the cost, but I called and the hotel (which is a franchise, so this isn't the same as one giant company) offered to refund all but the first night. Maybe someone else would have tried to drive a harder bargain, but I appreciated it. They were kind, didn't make it difficult or unpleasant, and we shared costs for an unfortunate and unexpected situation. Hotels aren't making as much these days and this wasn't a hotspot travel advisory region. In the future when I'm in Boston, I'll stay at this hotel because they've shown themselves to be responsive to customers. They really didn't have to.
