Hotel Stayed: Marriott
Nights Stayed: Friday, Saturday, Sunday and part of Monday.
Amenities: Nice sized TV, but kind of had some connectivity issues that would make the images jump or cut out at times, not too much of an issue as we normally just had the TV on while relaxing anyways. Ironing board, crappy wifi but that was to be expecting because of all the people. Had a fridge/freezer in our room, even though they had initially told us they were all out, so that was an awesome surprise! It kept things a lot colder than I was expecting, but that's a good thing at least for me. ;P Coffee maker, but we didn't use that.
Helpfulness of Staff: Very helpful! They didn't exactly bother us very much over the duration of our stay, and replaced towels when we requested them. So it was nice that they didn't seem very determined to bug us for room cleaning. Also, they were pretty fast to kind of fix an issue which I'll get to.
Roomshares?: Shared a king size bed with my boyfriend, and it was very comfy. I probably should have requested more pillows though because they were REALLY fluffy and we only had 3 of those ones, (I usually sleep with tons of pillows) then like 2 hardish ones that go against the headboard.
Pros of Hotel: Fridge that we weren't even charged for, spacious, comfy...South park was on all the time but that was just the channel, close by to everything so it wasn't a hassle to get back to the room when we were tired. It being close by also let us put stuff away quicker when we bought stuff. The shower was nice and the orange scented soap was very fancy. ;P Pretty quiet and didn't hear any...uh, lewd noises.
Cons of Hotel: Slow wifi but again, that is to be expected. Very VERY busy so getting an elevator was kind of tough at times (but kind of expected due to being connected to the convention itself). Shower, although nice didn't have very much pressure to it.
AND...well, my credit card got swiped twice when we checked in, so they actually ended up taking out about $630 or so instead of the original $317 or so that it was supposed to come up to. Although they fixed it kind of quick and luckily I had enough in my account, it sort of messed up my spending for the weekend... My bank ended up having to give an emergency provisional amount into my account and then they put the money back in like twice too, so my bank account ended up saying I had like $1100 in it when I really only had like $400 in my account. It was all KINDS of messed up and made having fun in the dealers hall a lot more annoying than it should have been.
Would You Stay Again: Yeah, as long as there are no credit card issues next year >.>
Recommendations/Suggestions/Misc: I do recommend the hotel. :D It was very nice to stay so close to the convention, but I suggest when leaving on Monday, to do it early. Or at least get your luggage out as fast as you can unless you want to get caught in the extremely crowded elevators.
