Also please know that we have considered this Residence Inn our "go to" for repeated stays when in Charlotte. But the deferred maintenance problems we experienced are not C19 related. The hotel just appears somewhat "shabby" since last year. 1. In our room, the shower ceiling was coming down due to a leak from above. It has obviously been patched over, but the leak above is continuing and has run down the inside of the adjacent wall, as the drywall & paint have cracked open. This is a mold farm and is not healthy. 2. The garbage disposer was frozen (not working), so any food residue is staying in the disposer & drain. This is also not healthy and is stinky. I had to reach in and pull out someone else's garbage. 3. Upon check-in arrival at 3PM on June 20, the lobby men's restroom was a mess. Trash bin overflowing and no paper towels at a time when we are supposed to be careful about hygiene. 4. The same situation in the pool "T" level men's room, only worse. 5. ALL outside trash containers by the entrances were overflowing and garbage strewn around them. There was an unusual amount of litter on the upper parking deck. 6. The outside rear patio furniture is disgusting. On the positive side, the front desk staff was excellent & friendly, as always. Has there been a management change? I would suggest that a Marriott inspector stop by for a surprise visit soon. Unfortunately, we will be exploring an alternative for our next stay in Charlotte, unless we hear that this previously very nice property has been restored.
