Good hotel great location but expensive
A good hotel I have stayed at many time but over $300 per night is a price hike beyond . I accept we are in recovery from COVID but prior this was a $200 a night with taxes .

4/10 Fair

Disappointing
We were there for only one day. One of The concierge personnel was not very friendly. I do not understand why she took over checking us in when the other person was already doing it and then proceeded to be quite curt. The room had fingerprints all over the desk, the wardrobe, fridge …I literally cleaned it before we used anything at all. Thankfully, we traveled here in our own car so I had my wipes etc handy. The bathroom and toilet etc had to be sprayed down. We paid over $400 but it was definitely not worth it and it was price gouging at its finest because of the regatta. Adding insult to injury, the breakfast options were almost non existent and they don’t even have complimentary coffee or tea? Who does that? I was very surprised and disappointed so this will be our first and last time at any of this level Marriott establishments.

Will not return
The room was fine but for nearly $300 it wasn’t worth it. Having to pay nearly $4.00 for a bottle of soda (because they do not offer drink machines) is silly as well has having to order from a Starbucks cafe at breakfast just seemed over the top for this traveler. I didn’t feel appreciated as a guest. More like a tired and trapped tourist.

6/10 Good

The pool setting was nice. The staff was clearly overwhelmed. Our first room had the plywood on the door disintegrating like it had gotten wet. The pull out couch mattress was in very poor condition - they are never super comfy - but this was not usable. They did change our room but the front desk seemed at first to be totally lost as to next steps.
