We think we first visited this hotel nine years ago when it was very new (and several times since). Must be well-maintained and updated as needed, because little if any wear noticeable.
Airport location is a great idea for day of arrival or night before departure, or maybe as a central location if you had different plans all over the island every day. (Not really located well for a daily beach vacation, despite people in swimsuits clearing out the ice machine every morning).
What is different is Marriott status does not get you much anymore. No free parking, no free breakfast, no upgrades, and no using free night certificates. (Nine years ago we got all of that, but I suppose it still has location advantages and they get to make those decisions themselves).
There is a food truck park that has sprung up right next door, which helps out with dining options and needing to move and repark your car. I understand why, but the fallout from that is now you have to card into the hotel even at the front door during the day (and so much for our previous practice to stop past for 10 minutes to print boarding passes on he way off the island).More
