I have not stayed at a "Marriott Hotel" in a while. I am currently a Titanium Member. Stayed 10 days ago at a Marriott in Charlotte (Category 4 ) and was less than impressed by the "M Club". Breakfast was very basic - more like a Fairfield Inn - Vat of scrambled eggs (still runny) and turkey bacon were the hot items. Bagel some bread you could toast. Small containers of fruit some yogurt and a couple dried cereals / muesli. A few fruit drinks plus of course coffee and tea.
In the evening you can get up to two drinks (wine or draft beer) but I didn't partake so I don't want to really comment there. Nor did I see if any snacks were available. I will be staying there again this weekend and will check.
Now I don't expect a huge spread but some differentiation from a "Premium Brand" Marriott Hotels vs a "Select Brand" like Fairfield Inn or Springhill Suites. Especially when we are comparing M Club for Elites and free breakfast to all guests like Fairfield.
Any thoughts. I did a search but had not seen a recent post on this topic.
