I have marble floors in a bathroom. It is an apartment that I am renting so how do I clean the floors to make them shine? polish and if so what kind? There is spotting on the floor right now that does not seem to come out. It looks like a "flim" over the surface.

Damage to marble such as you describe can be caused by vinegar. Vinegar will "cut" many minerals, including marble.
Somebody may have used vinegar to try to clean the marble. (It works great on glass.)
