I've never had an issue with leaving a bag at a Marriot.

I only stay SPG and leave a bag every weekend.

Surprised. The Westin we stay at allows this. Consider sending the GM an email if an exception can be made given your business over X months.

Marriott does

It's a ploy to make you stay overnight.

I've done that at many hotels. Only time I couldn't was back in 2008 for the DNC bc of security.

The Sheraton where I am no longer allows it because a bag was lost and punished all of us 😩

It's a local policy !!

Exactly, it's local. I'm sure there are hotels in all chains that will allow fhis

All the ones I stay do it. They like that you will come back. You should definitely talk to a GM or someone

Try leaving a suitcase vs a backpack ;-)

Marriott allows

Club Quarters

Are you a no status scrub ??

Every dump allows that ...

Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
