Spent the last night of my two week trip to Zanzibar and The Northern Tanzanian Safari Circuit at this excellent hotel. Great, relaxing way to end the trip. All the employees were exceptionally kind and courteous. My room was possibly the best in the hotel. I can’t be certain, but I am certain I was upgraded. Breakfast was great and I had an amazing grilled lobster dinner in the restaurant after the late checkout they granted me and before my flight home late that night. Highly recommended!

The vilest and viciousness of intentions with the hotel guests coming right from the management to the staffs! Deliberately got the staffs to slam and bang the doors around my room the entire day! During the night, it would be the security guy pacing up and down my room unrelentlessly every 10 to 15 minutes! The echoing of his footsteps splitting the silence of the night and permeating into my room. All my pleas for a quiet stay fell on deaf ears! The General Manager even has the audacity to threaten me that there’s a huge group of boisterous guests checking in and that I should leave. His persistence for me to leave was appalling and obnoxious. He made it very personal with me and it sure feels very personal. The deliberate and continuous banging and stomping from the staffs was to frustrate and aggravate me to leave! The General Manager refused to turn on the Television Channel despite repeated requests from the maintenance staff and the water heater was turned on partially to conserve energy and I am left with only 5 minutes of lukewarm water everytime! All these he claims to be economically viable for Marriott!!! How Ludicrous and Preposterous can they get?!? As a Marriott Bonvoy Member, I am totally disgusted and repulsed by such unprofessional inconsideration for the Hotel guests! When did Marriott start compromising the creature comforts of their guests in order to be economically viable??? I implore all travellers to reconsider and avoid staying in this atrocious and obnoxious Marriott Courtyard Dar Es Salaam; whose inertia service reeks of vileness and personal vendettas! It’s imperative that you heed my advice or stay at your own peril or suffer the consequences like I did! Eric Room 903

Response from Guest Service, Guest Services / Front Office at Protea Hotel Dar es Salaam Courtyard
Responded 10 Aug 2020
Thank you for staying with us recently and taking time to share your experience. You checked in with a single night’s reservation but continued to extend the stay daily and ended up staying for 5 nights in total. We would like to believe that you extended your stay because you were enjoying your time with us. Every single associate at the Protea Hotel by Marriott Courtyard sincerely tries, at all times, to ensure each and every guest leaves with nothing but fond memories of a satisfactory stay. Our efforts were the same with you as well and you acknowledged this several times by praising the service and experience – verbally and in writing. But after the first three nights and two days of our stay, your started feeling that pretty much all staff were conspiring to trouble you on a 24 hour basis by systematically banging doors, windows and stomping in all rooms around you as well as corridors. Your concerns required constant personal attention of several Heads of Departments and the entire Front Office TEAM. We all did what we could do and more to ensure your comfort. After your first complaint about Housekeeping staff making noise while cleaning rooms they were specifically asked not to enter the floor unnecessarily and do it only with caution, which was followed religiously. Despite being extremely patient, courteous, understanding and hospitable, you continued to feel that the staff are making noise and disturbing you. You wanted to sleep in the gym, which for safety reasons we couldn’t allow. We arranged dedicated security guards outside your room for your peace of mind and to block anyone entering the floor. But that also didn’t solve the problem and you wanted to sleep in the lobby, restaurant or coffee shop, which again, we couldn’t allow due to obvious reasons. There were no other guests staying on your floor apart from one night where one room was occupied and we offered to show you the CCTV footages to prove that no one is disturbing you but you did not want to do this. As you can see we went above and beyond to accommodate you. It would be an impossible feat for us to organize all staff to pull off the kind of stunts you mentioned, all for the sole purpose of making you leave. It is also unnecessary, as we could have simply asked you to leave since the management reserves the right of admission. We conveyed that there is no such effort from the staff to you several times and assured you verbally and in writing that we would continue to host you. But you felt otherwise. We never told you that a ‘’huge group of boisterous guests is checking in and that you should leave’’. You preferred to be the only person staying on your floor or keep other GUESTS away and we informed you that we have a group checking in and we may have to assign some rooms on your floor. We also specifically informed you that we will try to allocate rooms away from your room and that you may stay with us for 1 year if required. We agree that on the third day morning you had an interruption of hot water supply in your room. This was rectified within 15 minutes of receiving your written message, which is on record along with the resolution confirmation. This was not repeated after this, had nothing to do with viability or cost saving and reference was never made to any savings. FYI, we use solar water heaters and hence the water heating doesn’t cost us. Satellite TV connection has been down and you asked about this once only. We informed you that efforts are being made to reconnect the service and may take a couple of days. You did not bring this up during the rest of your stay. As you can see from the response, we pay close attention to what guests feel and say about our services and respond to every one of them. It was unfortunate that you felt the way you did despite our best efforts. It was clearly not the intention and hope you understand the same.

I stayed at the Protea Hotel in Dar es Salaam as part of a conference. The service was very friendly & I felt well taken care of. The food menu was diverse and the reception staff of Jane & Brenda were very helpful.
