Very nice hotel but a bit cold
Posted Jan 8, 2017 on Hotels
We love staying at the Marriott, even though it's somewhat expensive. The location is great, and I love having a good restaurant and a Starbucks right downstairs. The lobby always looks beautiful, and the people who work there are very nice. The rooms are great. My only complaint is that the heat didn't work very well. When we walked in, the maids had left the room at 72 degrees and it felt like the a/c was on. I know it was very cold outside, but it's not as if you don't get cold temperatures here every year. I had to crank up the heat to 80 degrees for many hours and the room was still not very warm. As you first walk in the door, the room was warm, but then as you walk in further it's not warm. I had to sit at the desk with my laptop to work, right next to the heater, and the fan was blowing on me...it was cold. I had to wear pants and a long-sleeved shirt and socks, not my usual loungewear. There was no way to turn off the fan, either, without turning off the heat. I asked them to look at it, and they sent an engineer, while we were out, who couldn't find anything wrong with it. They offered to move us to a new room, but we didn't feel like packing everything up again and moving it again. The downstairs was also very cold, even in the restaurant and bar. They need to heat the place better on the cold days.
