Housekeeping needs a review

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 Dec 2023
We rented two king studio suites for a family event. The room was exactly as we expected, roomy and efficient. Bed was decent but needing better mattress support, although it did not prevent a good night's sleep. We are loyal Bonvoy members and were generally happy with our stay.
HOWEVER. The Bonvoy reservation states alternative day house keeping, but during our 6 night stay we only had one visit by housekeeping. After checking with front desk I was told housekeeping is only every third day. They insisted my reservation confirmation was wrong even after I showed them the actual email. Someone needs to pay attention.
Also Pasadena's homeless problem is evident in front of the hotel. Better attention needs to be paid to this by hotel security. Like clockwork during breakfast, trees in front of the breakfast room were used as a toilet.
We'll be ack in two months, hope to see some changes.
Date of stay: November 2023
Room Tip: Breakfast get busy toward the 9:00 closing. Go earlier.

No A/C; room was full of noisy fans. No bar. No restaurant. Mixed service levels from the front desk. Rooms are functional. Cut a deal to check out early and find a different hotel. Far better choices close by. Reviews show the AC issues have been going on for months without resolution. Gym is good.

We have made 4 stays of a week or longer, at this hotel in the last 8 months. We won’t be going back. The problems that existed 8 months are still not fixed. This trip included 2 nights with no air conditioning. 1 night with a false fire alarm. 1 non working elevator. Their solution to no air conditioning was a box fan. They did nothing to make things right either. I could go on, but find another place.

It’s very hot outside and AC not working 3rd day in a row.

Front office can’t help except for apologising 3rd day and sending me old and noisy. She doesn’t know that this has been going on since she was away for a week! This information is not passed from the previoıs shifts !

There is no technical staff at night who can even have a look at the control panel and try to fix it.

I requested a room change and front desk claims there are absolutely no rooms available ! I doubt that, it’s a huge hotel and it doesn’t feel full at all.

I’m very annoyed. I’m staying for 2 weeks and paying more than 3300 usd. AC in California is not a luxury but a basic need if you want to have a proper stay and sleep.

Not so great mamagement from Marriott!

Room tip: Yeah ask if they fixed the AC before you pay.

Pros:
Spacious room with kitchen, sofa, desk, and large bathroom;
Easy to walk to lots of restaurants in Old Town Pasadena;
Reasonable walk to Metro Memorial Park Station light rail;
I was able to have food delivered directly to my room by an outside restaurant;
Free Breakfast

Cons:
The free breakfast was mediocre.
No free bottled water was provided - I was told there would be bottled water in my room, but that wasn't the case.
Customer service varied in quality. I realized the day after check out that I left my computer charger in my room. When I called to try to get it back I spoke to a few different staff and only one appeared to have made any effort to see if it was actually in the room. Twice I was hung up on by the front desk staff. I don't know if that was an accident, but they didn't bother to call back. It was my mistake to leave it there, but I was disappointed that they didn't help.

Notes:
Interior room on the 3rd floor was pretty quiet, but the pool, ping pong table, life-size chess, etc. were just outside on the 2nd floor, so I may have been lucky.

I saw a room at the Courtyard across the street and it was much smaller.

I am disappointed to have to write this review. We stay here a few times a year . This last time we stayed the room was so worn out and stained I had to ask to change rooms. You can see it in the pictures. They are always very nice and friendly at the front desk but never have any upgrades . The hotel is showing a lot of wear and tear. We won't be going back. I have choosen I different hotel for my upcoming stay . So sad.

Thank you for your review and loyalty to our hotel. We're sorry for the inconvenience regarding the room that you were in. We have been running high occupancies and our courtyard rooms have been occupied with long stayers during your time of stay. We hope you will be assigned a better room on your next stay. Thank you once again for staying with us.
