I decided to take my father on an Alaskan cruise and booked this for the night before.  I am new to the rewards program so I don't understand a lot about redemption on points and rates but when I looked online this hotel offered me the ability to redeem my points and also a special members rate for the weekend.  It was an additional little tab when I looked at rates over to the right which was much lower than the regular rate. 


Check in:  Staff was wonderful.  They were not aware I needed a room with double beds but quickly switched me.  The guy was confused about the rate I booked as it included breakfast and WiFi but I already got that since I was a gold member.  On arrival to my room it was obvious someone had been in there as the beds were rumbled and a half bottle of water left on the counter.  I called the front desk and they almost had a heart attack.  They offered to upgrade me to a suite or something really nice but they didn't have any with double beds so I politely declined and they put me in another room with double beds.  They were very kind and apologetic. 


Rooms:  The rooms were standard with Marriott bedding which is why I like Marriotts.


Lounge:  Great views and nice little Starbucks machine for my morning coffee and WSJ.


Random Notes:  Did Marriott buy out an Onyx quarry or what.  I love natural stones and onyx and have seen some beautiful examples at variois Marriott properties.  Just want someone to know it's wonderful and I love it!
