Nice hotel- quite kid friendly- was surpirsed

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: I liked the quiet of the hotel despite being pretty close to freeway. Pretty hotel- looked newly renovated. I liked they had acitivties for kids
Cons: If you have activities for kids, have staff that understand/tolerate that. SHOWERS! at pool, in gym, etc. No one wants to travel in wet bathing suit!
Location: Ocean Legoland San Diego Zoo and everything else San Diego has to offer LA Jolla Gaslamp quarter Balboa Park Seaworld
Stayed for a weekend with my 2 children because we had an event in Del Mar. Was not disappointed.

Terrible rules and regulations.

Posted Jul 7, 2014
We are a family of 4 and booked a 2 night stay through Expedia. We specifically asked for 2 beds. We checked in at 11:30AM. The person at the check-in desk said all rooms with 2 queen beds were taken, all they had was a room with a king bed. When I said that won't work for us he said next time we want to guarantee a room with 2 queen beds we would have to make the reservation directly with Marriott, he took out his business card and told me to call him directly next time we needed to make a reservation. On top of all, when we went to the check-in desk to see we could do about the single beds, the woman behind the desk said they had rooms with queen size beds but those were reserved for customers who directly booked with Marriott. Seems like that's their policy.

A very nice hotel. Had a good time with my family. Rooms were clean and the bed was clean and comfortable. The restaurant had an excellent food and service was very good. Pool area was good and gym had very good equipment's. The reading room close to the front desk had good books for kids.

Good location, centrally located

Posted May 20, 2014
The room was fine, the bed was comfortable. They provided minimum towels, and there is a fee for parking $20. I must have missed that on expedia, not a fun surprise! It's close to everything, great proximity to the beach, del mar highlands and more. I don't know if I'd stay here again but it was nice enough.

Stayed 5/17/14 for one night. Great hotel with great facilities! Room was spotless, bed was awesome, pool area awesome. Great lounging areas around pool, wait staff very attentive! I really enjoyed my stay, kids had a blast running around. Great location, 5 mins away from downtown del mar village.

Eloquent and Convenient

Posted May 18, 2014
Immaculately clean, great service, and a trendy room style that my high maintenance girlfriend even enjoyed. There are a ton of nice restaurants around the area that we sampled--and its very close to the beach as well!

Terrible Stay

Posted Apr 12, 2014
Pros: The comforters and pillows were great!
Cons: The hotel staffs attitude.
Location: Close to the highway. A little far from Downtown San Diego.
The hotel room was nice and small, but it was ok. The Hotel staff were not helpful at all. During our stay our room still wasn't made up at 4:30 in the afternoon and when I mentioned it to the staff in the lobby they were quite obvious that they couldn't care less. Then the next day the water went out on the top floors, our room wasn't made up again and the hotel staff once again were quite obvious they couldn't care less. They said they would get us a lower room to shower in and 45 minutes later they gave us a room which only had cold water. When I complained to the front desk they said that happens sometimes. The other guests in the hotel were complaining too that the staff was terrible and really didn't care. This hotel is in a mediocre location and really should have better service. Also the parking gate rarely worked and it took everyone a long time to get out of the parking ramp as the valet had to run over constantly to let people out. I stayed there for four nights and this happened constantly during my stay. A decently run hotel would have had that fixed during that time. Stay away from this hotel, it is not worth it. The overall score would have been higher, but the hotel staff really should get a rating of a -5.

Nice hotel, cool outdoor pool lounge.

Posted Mar 28, 2014
Only bad thing to say would be that I had a beautiful view of the A rooftop unit, I'm assuming because I did not book directly through the hotel.
