Amazing place to stay at for a weekend get away. Walking distance to great restaurants.Comment of H. Elizabeth , United States the 2016-05-16
We stayed at this hotel while my husband attended a lab convention. I was impressed by the lobby and staff when we checked in...it’s right on the bay and close to shops and the Midway which was cool. The room was nice. I was surprised they had FULL SIZE beds in the rooms...who does that anymore'' My husband and I opted for sleeping apart since we’re NOT little people anymore. The beds were comfy, there was a little balcony also which was nice...good breeze. Despite being close to the train tracks I didn’t hear any trains at all. Close to downtown and a million restaurants. We enjoyed our stay there. A LOT more pricey than we would have stayed at, but the boss paid, so...it was a nice trip. Haha
"average service and facility"
Visited for business. room quality average, and service average at best, considering the price. always a long line at the front desk, service requests always slow to be answered. nice view though. won't visit if on a personal trip.
"Empty Nester Getaway"
Great hotel!!! Gorgeous bay views. Marco the concierge was great. Personable professional and helpful. Made reservations for us at nearby Eddie V's which was very good with live music trio. Very close to the airport but you can't tell. Wander around outside by the marina and you will think you are at a tropical resort. Adjacent to convention center so you will see many business travelers. Marina Kitchen had great breakfast buffet but turns into a lively happy hour spot at night. Scenic trails for walkers or runners nearby. plus the sunny sky and slight breezes were so relaxing. Yet we also saw several families with small kids. Took the ferry over to Coronado island. Had lunch at the historic hotel del Coronado $$$$😳. Carlsbad outlet mall was a 30 minute drive north. Walked around gas lamp area. Lots of sports bars theaters and shops to see. Drive walk bike cab bus train or trolley to get around the down area. Also visited the famous zoo which is about a 15-20 minute cab ride. Really had a great time and look forward to returning😊
Great check in service by Crystal. Connected to the convention center the Marriot Marquis always deliver a clean and functional room. It's reaching the point where it can use a bit of updating, especially the bathroom. Great wifi. Amazing Marina and city views. Wish I has time to use the pool as it looks amazing. Concierge lounge was great, but closes Friday afternoon.
"Dated hotel but good service"
The hotel is conveniently located next to the convention center. The check-in process was ver quick. You will get the in room wifi for free if you are a Marriott member (apply for free). Bathroom amenities include only soap, shampoo and lotion. Slippers, razor, shower cap are per requested. Room is slightly dated but acceptable. Service is impeccable. Breakfast buffet is good but it would be better if adding more vegetable items.
