Extremely disappointed in our stay. First room we were given was a connecting room. First night the neighbors's alarm was blaring at 6am for more than 10mns and woke us up. We put in a complaint. Then that afternoon, I was trying to work and ALL I heard was them having intimate time together (if you catch my drift LOL). What they did in their own room was none of my business, however it was absolutely unacceptable that the walls were as thin as they were. I could also follow their conversations, that is how bad it was. I also went to put my little groceries in the fridge, and it wasn't even plugged in!!! Thankfully my husband noticed it in time and he had to move the huge TV stand to access the plug and that too was not ok (I actually have pictures to back this up) I then asked to change rooms, which they kindly did. But this is when the receptionist tells me I have access to the lounge, but... It is closed on weekends. Well what good is that doing me on Saturday LOL. We actually checked in Friday so you think someone would have told us. Very very disappointed in our stay at Marriott, this hotel definitely did not meet any of the Marriott standards for sure.

I am 70 years old and the toilets and restrooms were not very user friendly for that reason. Our floor woman even showed my friend an accessible room. There was not an inch difference in the toilet height. It will make a difference for me in the future.
