We're planning a trip in October and were deciding between the Marriott Marina and Coronado Island..as suggested for us as Platinum elite member, we are leaning towards the Marina, but just read a couple of reviews mentioning a 'loud train' that is heard in a city view room in the early morning hours. Also, we're going on Points...think that will make a difference in our 'treatment'??...usually doesn't!! Thanks
We recently stayed at the Marina and is was so great! Please see pictures.
We never noticed any RR sounds but we did see the station and all the sights from the hotel were great.
Have not stayed at Coronado, but I am sure it is nice as well. How can you go wrong? Good luck!
When we checked in at the M. Marina, without me even asking, Theo upgraded us to the Presidential Suite! This was a first, this suite was two floors, and covered three directional views from the top floor. It was the nicest room I have ever had. My son, Clayton, and I where there to accept a supplier award from Boeing, and what a great conference center and experience!
Thank-you Marriott Marina, for a memorable time!
My wife and I have stayed at both properties, and I will take the Marriott Marina any day.
The staff are uniformly great. I have absolutely no complaints. The rooms are comfortable and well-maintained, and (since it's a business hotel), everything is very convenient. And if you do want to visit Coronado, there is a shuttle boat that leaves the marina for Coronado on a regular basis.
Let me put it this way -- I stay at Marriott properties roughly 120 or so nights a year, and have been doing so for well over a decade (enough to easily qualify for Platinum Emeritus status), and the San Diego Marriott Hotel and Marina is my hands down favorite property.
Stayed at the Marina on family vacation last year, loved it and are looking forward to our next stay.
The first night we did hear the train you mentioned, it was very loud. Strangely enough did not hear it again after that !?
If you go, make sure you check out the 'Richard Walkers' pancake house about 1 block north. Great for a breakfast treat.
I've stayed at both--without knwoing your interests, I can tell you the MArina Hotel does a great job in recognizing your platinum, status, Coronado does too, but the Marina Hotel belongs on the MArriott Hotel of Fame!!!!! One of the best
Close to everything , Coronado is good if you want a secluded get away
