Wholeheartedly agree! This Marriott is really doing something right. Every employee is friendly and goes out of their way to greet each visitor and make their stay as comfortable as possible. The food in the bar is exceptional--every Marriott should copy it. It is not the standard fare because it is a step above the expected. The waitress was alone for part of the time we were here but she circulated well and stayed on top of the room. Again, the message is that you are a preferred guest no matter what your status is here and that comes from one place--the top down. My guess is that the manager of this hotel treats the staff with respect and it trickles down. It is a few minutes from the George Washington Bridge and a great stop on the way to and from NYC!! Really worth a visit--and the breakfast staff in the lobby was great as well. The concierge lounge is closed on the weekend and they give coupons for breakfast in lieu of access to the lounge to premium members.
