EARLY MORNING COFFEE AVAILABILITY

FOR THOSE THAT CAN'T START THEY DAY WITHOUT A GOOD CUP OF COFFEE


(Note:  in my opinion coffee service found "in room" is of a quality that is unacceptable to an individual that enjoys a good cup or two of "brew" to begin the day")


FACT #1:  a few years ago prior to the CL opening there  wasn't one full service hotel that didn't provide freshly brewed coffee (usually found in the lobby and complimentary ) for those early risers (for whatever reason - mainly time zone sufferers).


FACT #2: due to concession agreements most properties have installed "Starbuck locations" that precluded an individual from obtaining coffee (prior to the CL opening without going to the expense of room service) until the Starbucks opened - and when it did - bearing the cost of a cup of "Jo".


I welcome other's opinionsE and curious, if this inability to obtain a simple cup of coffee is as important to other members as it is to me.


I cannot understand why such a simple gesture of providing a coffee service in the lobby, which must be a minimal expense is not standard procedure at all propertiesl


Looking forward to your comments and if you miss this service as much as me.

    I have heard this from so many people. I just try to find a Dunkin Donuts if available.

      Unfortunately Dunkin locations are still rare in the West.

       

      They are expanding in that direction but very few have operating at this timel

          If only some would replace the Starbucks in many Marriotts

          Wow.

           

          Never been to a Dunkin Donuts but it sounds like they're making their way west.

            Their coffee is half the price and better (at least the dark roast is). Everyday and any day I would chose over Starbucks.

      Not being an avid Starbucks drinker (over-priced in my opinion), I would prefer just to have a good coffee at a local coffee/breakfast place. Now I do like a good coffee when I go out for dinner however as well.

      It's only a win win for Marriott if they don't alienate many customers.

       

      Obviously many of us do not like this change and it will cost Marriott.

       

      In room coffewe service is mediocre, at best.  Fortunately, most FS Marriotts are providing decent coffee in the CL.

    Thanks for sharing this, misterchk.

     

    I'm curious to read the perspectives of the community on the coffee situation.
