3's a Charm

My first room obviously was a smoking room (or had occupied a smoker); my second room felt next door to live ins - I heard a baby crying, father singing Spanish lullabies and several other voices. Finally the 3rd room was acceptable - quiet, great view and the staff was awesome. But I didn't like that they tried to give me a smoking room just because I booked on Orbitiz. $35/day for valet parking is so LA! Outrageous!

Good Value for Santa Monica

This was the cheapest room in Santa Monica that wasn't a two-star. The room smelt like men's cologne, which was annoying to my wife who gets migraines. This place gets four stars, however, due to its value and close proximity to everything there is to do in Santa Monica.

Friendly staff

Our room wasn't ready until 3:45pm which was annoying. They comped what we had in the restaurant while we waited so that kind of made of made up for it. The valet and porters were friendly and helpful as was the front desk. We loved the quick access from the pool to the beach. Rooms are what you expect from a nice hotel..the staff went above and beyond which is why we would return to this JW

Very Disappointing

For what we paid for this hotel, we were EXTREMELY disappointed with the quality. Because we booked through a third party and the hotel we were given a "city view" which meant we were directly over the parking lot/valet and the street. The room was average at best, and was in no way what one would expect from a Four Star hotel. The furnishings were old, the bathroom was small, and the faucet leaked. The location was great as far as closeness to the Pier, shops, etc. We were led to believe it was "steps to the beach" but that was not really the case. The one positive was the valet and bell staff. Every interaction we had with those guys was awesome and they were extremely helpful. We should have spent a little extra and stayed at one of the ocean front hotels.

Amazing....

Superb location less than a bock away from the pier and ocean. The price was less than $200 a night. We enjoyed it so much they extended our stay a second night at the same price. My only complaints were the $35 a night parking, but it was definitely peace of mind when I saw the going cost of parking that was not in a parking garage. The WiFi is not free either, but that kept us outside so it wasn't a large sacrifice. Overall I would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend a stay here to anybody in the area.

Awesome Stay

We just returned from Santa Monica. What a great hotel. The staff is amazing, friendly and accomodating. When we checked in, the room was not quite ready at 3:00 so they comp'd us free drinks at the beautiful courtyard area. Nice pool, convenient to the beach, rooms spotless and concierge helpful when we wanted to rent bikes. Bartenders were also friendly. Nice robes and slippers in the room. I would definately stay here again.

Marriott hotel in Santa Monica

When you first walk into the hotel you can definitely tell it is old. But I thought would still be nice. Then walked into the room and it really smelled. The carpet was old and everything was the bare minimum . The only nice thing in the room was the bed. The drapes are disgusting. I would definitely call this a 3 star hotel, not a four star. Everything needs to be updated. Did have ok food service . They need to keep the plants looking nicer outside

great staff!

Tge staff were extremely personable and informative. I didn't like how you had to valet your vehicle and how much they charged for basic internet. U have to be on the right side of the road to get there too so first go around to get there made it difficult. Again the staff were patient and lovely.
