Would not return

Came here for a work event and I probably would not return. The pool is nice and the restaurant serves decent food but that’s the extent of it. The hotel is outdated. The carpet in the hallways is pulling up and bubbling in spots. We got to our room and I immediately heard a sound of running water. The toilet was broken and running continually. You could tell someone had “attempted” to fix it because the tank lid was not seated properly. There was no do not disturb sign in our room so I ended up making one out of a piece of paper. The maid came by and asked us if we wanted any cleaning done which we declined but never once did they replace my sad hand made sign with a normal hotel one. The bathroom was ditry. There were many black hairs stuck to the ceiling which was low hanging and easy to be cleaned. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to be showering with random hairs hanging from the ceiling. There was no room service menu in our room which was unfortunate because I would have gladly ordered something one evening. While I appreciate the retro vibe, this hotel clearly needs some upgrades.

Avoid this hotel.

Had the worst service experience ever. It started with telephone reservation when after asking them to book two identical rooms I received a confirmation for only one and had to call back to add another one. I wanted two king deluxe suites next to each other with connecting rooms and I was assured that it was noted and it will be done. On the day we arrived, at check in we found out that the hotel oversold the rooms and there was only on king deluxe suite available and they offered us another regular queen room on the other side of the hotel. We were frustrated that instead of offering us an upgrade for the same price they offered us a downgrade. After 45 minutes of discussion we ended up getting two regular queen rooms, because they were the only ones that were next to each other we agreed to downgrade. In the morning of heck out I received the bill which was even higher than my original bill for king deluxe. I went to the front desk to solve the problem and the assistant refused to do anything because I didn't have an email confirmation for the downgrade, so they had charged me with the initial fee for king deluxe. The matter was only solved after the manager was involved. The whole weekend that was supposed to be a relax ended up being a frustration. I wish this was the end. After our stay when me and my uncle checked our online banking we noticed that my account was charged for the rooms and my uncle who initially made the booking but did not pay himself for the room was charged 150 dollar and in addition my account still has 200 dollars pending and I am still waiting to see what those are. In one word the staff needs training, because the nice pool are and SPA does not make up for the service you get there. And honestly this is not smth you expect to get when you come to a Mariotte hotel. Regarding the room. It was clean, I guess OK, but very outdated and strangely no wardrobe or a drawer so we had our clothes laying around, messy. There was only 2 sets of towels for 3 people, the room was overlooking the parking. The only thing to like about this hotel is the pool area and the SPA, which is a separate entity and has nothing to do with the hotel.
