Favorite Marriott Rooms?

We all have a favorite, memorable room that we would love to go back to! 

 

It's all personal, based upon price, location, or whatever?

 

I would enjoy sharing with you mine,  room 1222, RI, Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Az.  A two bedroom suite (About $200 per night), that is so quiet, free parking, full kitchen, three tv's, two baths. It's just a wonderful place to base my stay's in the Scottsdale area.  Here are some photo's"

    That looks almost exactly like the suite we've been in which we've been living in Montgomery, AL for the last 1 1/2 years.  They were remodeled at that time and we moved from another suite that hadn't been done yet.  The only difference is that our curtains are gold instead of the reddish color.  Stainless steel appliances, too, but the refrigerator door opens into the wall so the left veggie bin won't pull out.

      eb5147,

       

      Good to know!

       

      I try to keep a log of room numbers as well as table numbers at desired places to dine.  It is wonderful to request them when making reservations.

        I never thought of keeping track of room and table numbers; what a great idea!  Thank you for this most helpful hint.

          sledchick,

           

          There is nothing like going to a choice property and knowing the room you will get!  Especially, when you have stayed in that room before and enjoyed it!

           

          Some of us take pictures of the rooms and numbers.  (Wow I know I sound "Weird", but it works for that special trip).

    Jerry, as you may recall, we rarely photograph the inside of the rooms that we are given.  However, we did take a few shots of the one that we had at the JW on Penn in DC.  We have had the same room (suite) twice now and, despite being a bit of an odd shape, we find it to be an excellent room.  No, I have no idea as to what number it is.  It has a nice sitting area which is sectioned off from the bed area and a huge bathroom.  The view from the large windows is across to the Washington Monument.  I know that there have been a few critical reviews of the hotel from some MRIs, but I guess that we have been lucky there ... great service and always an upgrade.

        Unfortunately, she wasn't relaxing ... she wanted to go out and I asked her to sit there so that we could get a bit of perspective on the length of the room ... .  However, we had a great evening at Blue's Alley in Georgetown, so all was well in the end.

          I just hope they come thru for us with that wonderful room in London!

           

          That was a wonderful time for all of us!  They sound like they will, especially if we get a nice "Group of MRI" together!

              Hope you are right!

              See you in the "States"!

                Only 43 hours to go Jerry.  We've just been updating the kids on 'things to do' whilst we're away. 

                 

                It looks like being quite an eventful year for us ... our 40th Wedding Anniversary later this year ... and our eldest son is planning his wedding for late summer.  It could be an expensive year ...

                  So exciting to be so close to your big trip now.  Sounds like the rest of the year will be expensive yes, but think of all the MI points you'll rack up (hopefully).  Anyway, have fun on the trip and we'll be following whenever we get an update!

    Would love to have anyone describe their "Favorite" Marriott room!

     

    I really think back on some of "SS's comments about the experience he had at The original Marriott in WDC".  Stayed there myself, and it was really a unique experience.  Thanks for sharing Roger!

      I wish I could remember the room number, but we had an incredible weekend stay at the Marriott Fairway Villas Congressional Building in Absecon, New Jersey.  I liked it so much I told my husband that I wanted to live there!  The villa was spacious, the views relaxing, and it was warm enough to practice on the putting green that morning in March.  We were on the second floor so there was a walk-out porch that we spent a lot of time on.  The master suite had an incredible soaking tub and the columns in the room made me feel like an Egyptian princess.  We attended a college sporting event at the Atlantic City Convention Center but I did not want to stay in AC itself as at the time my son was only 8 years old.  That was a great idea as the playground was fun, the indoor pool very nice, and they have a Red Door Spa on the property.  If I could choose one word to describe my experience, it would be, "Aaaahhhhhh."  I have made a reservation to go back this March!

    It's been awhile, but I had this great room at the Eden Roc in Miami Beach. If I remember right, you came in, had a hallway of a few steps, and then you had two steps down into the bedroom...and it was on the ocean.

     

    Great old grand hotel.

                That is an excellent idea!  That would be very interesting indeed!  Boy, I need to add experiences to my repertoire... and quick!!  

                 

                Presidential Suite upgrade?!  That's amazing!!  I'm hoping (but convinced it won't happen) that we'll get upgraded to at least a standard suite for our wedding at the JW Marriott Ihilani!  Platinum + large event + return customer... Please?

                  Just make sure you let them know about your special occasion.  For something that special, you should consider going out there and meeting the Concierge and/or the Guest Relations Manager.
