Air cond did not work entire time, even after engineering came up to tkae a look. Rooms are very tatty - kind of made your skin start to itch when you walked in, bed sagged big time. The gym (LL)and lounge (2nd flr) were both in very nice shape and quite nice. What lobby they have smells like an ashtray, since all the smokers think they are doing you a favor by standing directly outside of the revolving door to smoke. There was a very larg group of muslims staying there, and EVERY DAY, starting around 11 AM, the men-folk woudl take over the lounge area - lounging, of course, but with their shoes off, feet on the cushions and talking quite loudly. In the evening they again (about 20 of them) would take over the lounge , playing cards, or Strageo, or whatever, ,making it impossible to meet or chat with others in our group before we went out. This place felt more like a flop house than a Marriott. I reccomend that Marriot either get rid of the Residence Inn feature and convert to a regualr hotel or sell the property - it looks like it belongs in a bad part of town. Get location however, nice staff, just trashy.
