Pleasant - 3 out of 5

SR, Mason City IA Mon, 27 February 2012

I can't believe a hotel this size doesn't have a few designated smoking rooms for the smoking population. The room I reserved cost a total of $195.00. When I checked out, I was given a receipt for valet parking for $20.14. I was totally shocked. I could not believe I just spent $195 on a room that was not $195 quality and I get charged for valet parking. Every hotel I have ever stayed at has complimentary valet parking. I could have parked at the Des Moines airport all week and not spent on parking what I did at the Marriott. This was very disappointing and chances are I will not stay at this Marriott again in the future.

Liked: Close to event centers.
Disliked: Charge for valet parking; no smoking rooms.

Couldn't have went better.

Liked: Front desk staff was excellent, both checking in and extending my checkout. Valet was excellent. Concierge was excellent = recommended the steak house down the street and we had a great dinner. Also, our first meeting was a block away = convenient. Breakfast brought to the room quickly and warm/hot.
