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.

Great location, friendly staff, comfortable...

Liked: Great downtown location near very nice restaurants. Love the layout of the room very trendy yet comforting. Beautiful view of the river from our room. Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodated any needs we had very quickly. Valet service was top notch! Will definitely stay again in the future.
