Marriott on the Falls (Niagara Falls Ontario)

Update, Marriott on the Falls, Niagara Falls Ontario: Lounge closed on Friday night to Sunday morning. Told that lounge not accessible when not open (but did not try). Comped full buffet in Milestones Restaurant on Saturday and Sunday morning. Decent restaurant buffet far superior to mediocre lounge fare.

Today I asked nicely as it would make the difference where I stay and they said "no".

I guess this was more of a one time deal than regular practice. So I would move this one to "no coupons". 9/21/2012 update.

Teaneck / Marriott at Glenpointe

Stayed in mid-October. Lounge is an M Lounge on the ground floor. It is open 24-7, with soft drinks and limited snacks at all times. Breakfast is served in the lounge every day. There is a Starbucks machine. At check-in I was told that the one guest (beyond the elite member) would be rigorously enforced, and that names/room numbers would be checked by the attendants. This was definitely NOT the case.

I received an email from the Lexington NYC as my stay begins tonight:

As a platinum member, we are happy to provide the following complimentary amenities:

Your choice of either 500 points or a $10.00 Food and Beverage Credit
Continental Breakfast served Monday through Friday, 6:30am to 9:30am in the Mixing Room located just off the Living Room and Saturday – Sunday, 7:00am to 10:00am
Complimentary High Speed Internet
2 bottled waters upon arrival; complimentary refills given upon request

They bolded that section in the email themselves so must be a new policy.

Marriott Westchester: As a Gold checking in this weekend, I given coupons for Continental Breakfast for two ($13.95 list price pp) and told there was a $5 up charge to the full buffet.

I was also given a $10 Platinum F&B coupon which covered our up charge for one of our two nights, but I believe that was because I had made nice with the woman who checked us in, and not because of standard hotel policy.

The buffet was exceedingly average.

Las Vegas Renaissance updated Nov. 2016

* Las Vegas / Renaissance Las Vegas / CLOSED; free wireless in lounge & 1 i-net terminal; not key accessible on weekends but is key accessible during the week inbetween morning & evening offerings; Full brekkie in restaurant; 05/16 update

Now OPEN on weekends for Breakfast (only) closes at 10am - same time as mid-week. Includes bacon and eggs. No access after 10am on weekend.

The lounge is packed for weekend Breakfast. I am seeing a trend here - with so many people eligible for the free breakfast on the weekend, the restaurants are being overwhelmed. So some hotels are now opening the lounges for breakfast.

Marriott Rancho Cordova, CA /Sacramento - update 11/12/16
Lounge remains closed on weekends EXCEPT open for breakfast 8A - 10:30A.
Therefore no longer does property give Plats comp. bkfst. buffet vouchers to restaurant.

Service on weekends: full continental items (i.e., juice, hot & cold cereal, danish/muffins/bagels breads for toasting) and two hot items (scrambled eggs and french toast today).

[Per property FD, repeat guest feedback was that weekend bkfst lounge access preferred over restaurant buffet access.] Lounge is locked on weekends except for bkfst. hours.

I'm seeing that same trend as well with lounge being open for breakfast only on weekends instead of giving restaurant voucher. My main issue with that is the lounge closes earlier than the hotel breakfast, which is typically up until noon on weekends. Also seen some of the lounge offerings be a lot more sparse than the main hotel offering.

My guess is Holidays. Business travel is light those weeks and lounges are often closed. Usually the weekend lounge policy is in effect. Call hotel to confirm.
