Renovation here just horrible. Please Marriott don't do this to any other property. It is like a bad W. It has lots of plugs. If you work for a company like Google and you spend all your time on the computer and have 9 devices to plug in and charge, maybe you'll like this place. No one else will. Before... More

Although not mentioned on the hotel's website, the common areas of the hotel are under extensive renovation. As a result, entering from the rear parking lot is confusing as to where the lobby is. The signage is non-existent. Also, the gift shop/newsstand mentioned in the website is not finished yet. The main restaurant is apparently unavailable for dinner, too. As... More

First of all the staff remains exceptional. I phoned the front desk with a question, and was greeted with, "Hello Mr. X, this is Jared, how may I serve you?". Did I say WOW enough to myself?

We stayed in one of the suite rooms. It was very nice and had just been remodeled. It had two rooms and was very spacious. The problem we had was with the doors in the room. The one door into the bedroom from the living room had a frosted glass door, but it didn't keep the light out of the... More

We were a little worried about the hotel because it was undergoing major renovations. We requested a remodeled room and our request was honored. What a wonderful experience! We never even thought twice about the renovations because the staff more than made up for any inconvenience we might have had which was none. I have never experienced a more friendly... More

Hotel is under renovation, which upon arrival was a bit of a disappointment, but the attentive & friendly staff quickly made up for the construction disruption. Asking about scenery/hike/beach suggestions, the gentleman at the front desk recommended Gaviota Wind Caves, a sandstone formation located in the Santa Ynez hills, which was about a 10-15 min drive from the hotel &...

My wife and I were making a road trip from Santa Cruz to Palm Springs and wanted to spend the night on the coast on the way. We recently purchased a Tesla and wanted to re-charge overnight en route.

I opened the door to a newly renovated room and was I surprised - the room is a change from the Marriott look I expected. It had hard wood style floors, built in seating seating around a small table. It was clean and pleasant. I will say, that without carpeting, noise is not dampened, but the room is quiet. Plenty... More

We booked this room last minute on points. The website said there were some renovations, but we were not expecting them to be so extensive.
