I am a Platinum Elite member. I am a very active business traveler and have been loyal to IHG for the better part of 5 years. This experience will likely send me back to Mar*****. I understand Covid 19 protocols but they have eliminated the airport shuttle, valet, bellman, breakfast, bar service and from what I can tell the cleaning off the common areas all together. This place is a filthy ghost town, I know Covid and all but it was oddly quiet and dirty. Floors clearly are not being cleaned, elevators had shoe prints all over the doors for all 3 days we were there, definitely not being cleaned. Hallways had piles of food/trash swept into the corners which was finally cleaned up on day 3. Day 2 afternoon homeless man charging his phone at the valet stand while were headed to lunch. That evening upon returning from dinner another homeless man with lots of bags was sleeping in the lobby on the right side near the banquet rooms. We did not see any security on the property the entire visit which is odd given the location. Carried a pistol the entire stay. We arrived to the hotel and checked in quickly. Entered the room to a balmy 80 degrees and clearly no air conditioning. No power to wall unit, clearly this room was not inspected that day for arriving guests. Back to the lobby with all of gear (lacrosse tournament trip). Front desk quickly swapped rooms for us, no one checked this room either. It was ok but didn't look great, it did have AC. Bathroom was in rough shape, door did not close correctly but we needed to eat and get moving so we did not swap again. Both nights the AC unit could not get itself situated. It was either 65 degrees or 75 degrees. It would blast for 30 minutes like a jet taking off and then it would blow warm air for a bit. Comforter on, comforter off.... all night... We considered moving to a different property but at that point it would have been a lot of work to move the gear and get situated again. We decided on dinner instead. Day 2 in the room after dinner there were small bugs/tiny ants on the entertainment center but it was late and we did not want to swap rooms again. Lingering marijuana smell all weekend, we couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. We checked out at 730am Sunday as we were all up because the awful conditions of the room, we were ready to go. Awful stay, no one asked how it was, were we good? Nothing. And there were only a few other rooms occupied. I will absolutely never stay at this location again. I had 4-5 previous stays as it is very convenient to the airport. Awful stay, clean the hotel. Pretend like you care about your business. Read less

We stayed for two nights. The staff was immediately very accommodating and so nice as soon as we arrived. We had no issues at all our entire visit. We loved how clean the hotel was.

The rooms were updated and felt like a luxury hotel experience. The continental breakfast was awesome! I loved having a personal server at a continental breakfast, I've never experienced that before. I would 100 percent stay here again if I am ever in the area again. The staff was nothing but pleasant. The pictures provided are very accurate to what you'll see upon arrival. Read less

While I can understand during this pandemic that hotels need to cut expenses. Stopping shuttle service from an International Airport to an International Airport Hotel is ludicrous and throughout the US there’s shuttle service at all cities. I’m an regular who commutes to Orlando weekly. Normally there is free shuttle service to and from the airport. But now they have cancelled the service. I called and was told to Uber. It cost $16 plus to get to hotel and around $10 to return to airport. This is a 5 minute drive. So add another $25 to your budget! I was waiting for my Lyft this morning at 5 am and saw Wyndham/Ramada and others heading to airport. Should have went with them! Read less

The staff and rooms were excellent despite being under construction. The beds were the ultimate in comfort. The breakfast was very good and worth getting! Due to a cancelled flight (Frontier stinks!) we had to stay for 2 nights until we could catch another flight and this hotel made everything so much better and allowed for us to make the most… Read more

Due to a cancelled flight (Frontier stinks!) we had to stay for 2 nights until we could catch another flight and this hotel made everything so much better and allowed for us to make the most of an unpleasant situation. They even had reasonably priced laundry services and a hot tub and pool AND onsite local rental cars so we could drive to Cocoa beach! Read less

So arrived around 2200 on night of my stay. Shuttle arrived in about 10 min. Not too bad. Driver was nice and drive was fine. Check in was ok, young lady was friendly enough. Had a room on 4th floor. Elevators were dirty with wrappers and a empty can. Large group of loud people got in before me so maybe it was them. Room was ok. Entry light did… Read more
So arrived around 2200 on night of my stay. Shuttle arrived in about 10 min. Not too bad. Driver was nice and drive was fine. Check in was ok, young lady was friendly enough. Had a room on 4th floor. Elevators were dirty with wrappers and a empty can. Large group of loud people got in before me so maybe it was them. Room was ok. Entry light did not work. Thermostat would only go down to 65 but it was not 65 in the room and it was muggy. Needed to plug in laptop but cover on plug in wall was partially broken and would not plug in. Room seemed pretty clean, but looks like vacuum missed under desk. Lots of crumbs. Coffee maker was a nice touch with Keurig. Bed and pillows were ok. Bathroom and shower were clean. Not a bad place, but not worth the money it cost for one night. Read less
