We stayed there a few years ago. Great location and wonderful staff!

I am here to say goodbye to Marriott. I used to be a valued client and tonight I found out you don’t care. Hilton here I come...

Have had that exact room on a few stays at that property. I’ve also had some of the larger suites. Status has its perks and the staff at County Hall is some of the best in the UK for sure.

Loved my stay here last year! Would definitely stay here again

Not this particular location but Marriott will never receive my business ever.... They play with the rates then never received my points for my room & my parents room that I paid for. Since June 2019 still no points until today am I told that I will not be receiving. I'm glad Hilton goes above & beyond to keep loyal customers

Love this location ...I was treated like a queen lol

So you can wave at people while in your bathrobe eating breakfast! lol

I've been a Marriott card holder for years. Not that it matters but I'm Titanium Elite status. Regardless I have had a problem with Marriott Bonvoy that I think everyone should be aware of...Every year we receive a certificate for a complementary night at a Marriott hotel. I always use my night while visiting grandchildren in Texas. On April 7, I called a representative and requested to use my free night at a Courtyard in TX. My request was granted and confirmed for the night of June 4. I went to TX and upon leaving the hotel I was charged $149.21 for my FREE night. I tried three different times to clear this up with the hotel. Then I called Marriott Bonvoy, they opened a case on June 11, since that time I have called on three occasions always being promised they would call or email me ASAP. These were all in August. I have never been contacted in any way. This is unacceptable customer service and I want everyone to know this.

A beautiful area!

See you Thursday for a trip to the Cove .

Picture perfect!

Why is it cheaper to book a room and pay full price, than to use the points plus cash option? Every time I've ever compared, it's less expensive to pay full price for a room.

I can't book directly.I want the free room after 2 stays

Horrible hotels, horrible service... 👎👎
