I stayed here for a week on business. The hotel room was clean and good sized. The staff are cheerful and polite. Location wise, about a 30 minute drive from the airport, and not much nearby in the way of tourist attractions, but a good base for business travellers as it is near major roads. One weird thing - lack...

Thanks for taking the time to send in a survey. As for the Internet, if you are a Marriott Rewards member, the internet is complimentary. Our rewards program is one of the best in the industry. If you are traveling on business or just taking a weekend, there are many different perks. I'm not sure what happenned with the Shower...

Love the location of this hotel - it is just off one of the major highways north - you can be at Legoland, the Safari Park Zoo, Sea World in less than 30 minutes depending on traffic. It has a beautiful outdoor pool area - see photo with a hot tub tucked in a corner. The restaurant is really terrific...

I stayed here 2 weeks on business and had an excellent experience. Great food, clean rooms and the staff is excellent. More specifically I want to recognize one of the staffers Adrian. On multiple occasions Adrian went above and beyond to not only provide great hospitality but also personalize the interaction. This hotel is an excellent choice to stay in...

Came to SD for my nephew's high school graduation and the Marriott Del Mar was a great central location. Close to the 56 and the 5, easy to get around.

My home away from home for 4 nights, got the job done. In business location, not on beach. Concierge lounge worth the upcharge. WiFi works fine. Staff caring and competent. Housekeeping staff does great job. Restaurant quite good, menu unique, worth dining in at least once. Up to Marriott standards. On site self park $20.

Cooling did not work in room. Staff finally moved us to new room around midnite. When we checked out and ask for some adjustment for the inconvenience, they said that since we booked using an online service they would not do anything for us. Could have stayed at other chain hotels for comparable room at lower price.

The hotel was comfortable, staff was helpful. The restaurant has amazing, melt in your mouth, sushi! The outdoor area near the pool is a perfect place for cocktails with heat lamps if needed. In the mornings there's a coffee stand right outside the hotel. There's a large parking garage for those with a car.
