AVOID THIS PLACE LIKE THE PLAGUE. YOUR ROOM WILL NOT BE READY BY THE ADVERTISED 4PM CHECK IN TIME =(

William L on Jul 29, 2021

As I type this I've been standing in the lobby for for 2 and 45 minutes. We got to the hotel at 2pm knowing that we may have to wait till 4pm (checkin time) before we actually got the room. Well it's now 4:45pm and after 3 trips to the front desk to check on our room it's still not ready. In fact there is a whole lobby of people waiting and a full bar of people still waiting for there rooms. This place smells musty, looks dated, and the last saving grace could of been service but it most certainly is NOT. I've never not once had a room bot be ready at check I'm time and I travel 10-15 times per year. From previous reviews I've read this seems to be a re-occuring theme at this hotel these days. Some people report not getting rooms till 545-630pm on some of the forums and review sites so in that aspect it seems to be going downhill fast. One guy next to me was screaming at mariott's national call center over the delays. After a long grueling day of travel you hope the room will be ready early BUT thats never a guarantee, we already knew that. But you expect your room to be ready when they actually advertise it to be ready... We'll it seems an on-time check-in at 4pm is also not a guarantee. HIRE MORE HOUSEKEEPERS FOR CHRIST SAKE.

Business trip in July

DavidWT2112 (Arlington, Texas) on Jul 29, 2021

Beautiful location and attached with The Swan. Pool area and lobby bar area were great! Not enough restaurants for all the quests if they are staying on property. All reservations wanted could be filled only around the 9pm hour. Rooms need some help with upkeep and cleaning. Some webs and stuff still left in room. Bathroom is very small with the toilet and shower. David @ travel4seasons@yahoo.com
