6,0 Okay
Cons:Carpet in room was stained, mattress was not supportive/ sagged. It’s a motel, not a hotel.
9,4 Excellent
Cons:No snacks to purchase (candy, chips, etc. )
8,0 Great
Pros:Upscale hotel very close to the beach. The interiors are very well appointed and well thought off. The heated pool and hot tub are quite awesome and the pool side bar is a blessing. They have got cabanas on pool side, which can either be reserved or on first come first serve basis (did not use, so not so sure). The Solaire in house restaurant is quite upscale and offers quite a variety of sumptuous eating options. Overall an excellent hotel with courteous staff.
Cons:The rooms are a bit small, which probably is due to the expensive real estate and demand for rooms in the area. The room service is quite slow, if at all they turn up to service you, which was slightly disappointing. Parking could be a problem if you get in late in night, and the parking spots are quite close together. I was quite worried That someone is going to bang into my car while opening the door.
9,7 Excellent
Pros:The hotel staff gave our party of 150 people 5 star service, the food created for the buffet was excellent, valet service for our guests was a wonderful touch, the ballroom was spacious with tasteful decor, and our private room was clean and well designed. Above all our event planner was knowledgeable and accommodating!
Cons:I can't come up with a negative comment.
6,8 Okay
Pros:the shower,
Cons:the rooms were small
9,4 Excellent
Pros:No complaints. Accommodated all of our requests. Would stay here again.
6,2 Okay
Cons:Restaurant service was terrible!!
7,7 Good
Pros:Overall this is a good hotel with very nice staff. What I expect from a Marriott. Everything was clean and there was tons of parking for self park. Our room was spacious and the hotel was quite. The pool looked very popular for families and the restaurant always had people in it- but we didn't visit either.
Cons:Not sure why they charge you to self park @ $10 a night.
9,1 Excellent
Pros:The staff is actually warm and welcoming, not just cold or professional. The rooms are smart and clean and the beds are unusually comfortable. The decor and cleanliness of the pool area is refreshing; the bar attached to the pool deck is a very nice touch.
Cons:The jets in the spa were weak to non-existent. I am a "spa snob" though, so my judgment may be overstated. I have a bad back, so I always look for places with a spa. I am, nevertheless, glad that the Paradox had a spa: the water was hot and the water was clean. For that, I am grateful. However, without working jets, I have to give the Paradox less than a perfect rating. Please excuse my snobbery.
8,0 Great
Pros:Overall I really liked the concept of the hotel. My room was comfortable and well designed. The lobby, pool area, and touches like the mats by the elevator were nice. Staff was very helpful and kind when I complained about the pool issues, the manager of the restaurant let me know that they're going to hire a pool attendant.
Cons:This hotel is a distance from the beach and on a very busy road so I feel like the people including myself book it because of the pool area which has a great design and an area to eat outside and enjoy the sun. There were clear rules around the pool, no kids under 14 in the hot tub, no children not potty trained in the pool, no jumping or diving from the sides of the pool. No employee of the hotel or restaurant was enforcing these rules when I was there for a 2 day getaway from my home in San Francisco. I witnessed a baby in a diaper in the heated pool, there were children under 14, under 5 years old and babies, with their parents in the hot tub, and adults and children dive bombing the pool so I was getting splashed with water when I was trying to relax. This hotel is in the Marriott chain, Marriott knows what's safe and posted all of the rules, the hotel needs to enforce them so everyone, people with kids and without, can enjoy their stay.
