If only Marriott had better in-room coffee. Just replacing the machines with Nespresso machines would dramatically improve the quality of the hotel...

Keurig/Nespresso pods are also way more expensive than the coffee pouches currently in each room

People would just take the pods home and still pick up Starbucks, but I like your thinking

I’m surprised more hotels haven’t shifted to keurig machines to be honest

This is definitely more opinion than fact. Avid coffee drinker here and I barely use in room coffee at all

I get the cost concerns. But the ritz does it so...Marriott should figure it out. Maybe stock them on the platinum floors?

Just email Marriott and I’m sure they’ll get it done. Especially if you’re platinum - they will no doubt listen ;)

Lol disagree 100% that the ritz doing it is justification for Marriott to do it

The extra $100 a night you are paying to the Ritz over the Marriott would include the $3 worth of Nespresso pods in your room that you will invariably take home
It really depends on the specific hotel. I have had Nespresso in some Marriott hotels.

- My work quality has significantly improved since last year
- 90% utilized this year
- Current pay is below market value
- No harm in asking
