Through no fault of the hotel, had terribly rude people talking loudly/cussing in the middle of the night! Fortunately, the staff took appropriate action and it stopped. Otherwise, great stay, wonderful room - quiet and very clean!

In my travels Marriott has my rating next to the top. San diego area has no continental breakfast. Too bad. Forceses to go elswhere to avoid very pricey breakfast. If in a hurry I may choose to purchase something. Not enough towel bars or hooks for two people to hang towell to reuse. Not much expense to ha a towell bar for two towels

Nice hotel, easy to get around

The hotel is what I expect from a Marriott brand. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly, especially housekeeping. The amenities were nice. Room was clean and quiet. One thing we didn't like was the automatic closure on the bathroom door. It was annoying. The beds were comfortable. There was no freezer area in the fridge so we couldn't keep our ice block frozen for our carry lunchbox. We would definitely stay here again.
