looking for a place to stay in Richmond, VA and came across the Short Pump Marriott and noticed it has an M club. So is there a lot of different between a CL and M club and has anybody been to this one with any advice. Seems like the hotel in general was recently remodeled and a lot of people like it. I'd love to hear what you all have to say.
I stayed here a few years ago, before the latest renovations. Nice property and convenient to plenty of great restaurants. I've only stayed at one location with an M Club so far, and for the most part, there aren't a lot of differences from a typical CL. Non-Gold and Platinum guests can buy a pass to use the M Club, but I doubt many do (not sure of the price). I found the food offerings to be better than many CLs I've visited (though not all).
I'm pretty sure I was Silver when I visited, so I didn't see what the CL was like before the conversion to an M Club. My experience with the staff was excellent. Add to that the recent remodel and I'm sure a stay here would be great.
Further to what bejacob said, I've not stayed at that hotel, but I have had M club experience in two places. In both cases I thought the lounge experience was a step up. A couple of observations,
