The Brisbane Marriott is, well, just another Marriott. I used to swear by Mariotts (and I was using Marriott Rewards points to stay for a weekend), but I was disappointed. Had I been paying several hundred dollars, I would wonder exactly where the money was going, to be honest.
It's certainly 5-star opulence, but the room could have been anywhere, the service was standard. There seemed to be nothing special, nothing unique.
The staff were friendly, everything worked, the room had everything I needed, the bed was comfortable, but everything just seemed 'expensive' rather than 'value'. In my opinion, you can get the same service, friendly staff, and room facilities for $100 a night less expenditure.
There is absolutely nothing to complain about with the Brisbane Marriott, but you can get the same for a whole lot less.
Unique Quality: Very small swimming pool and health club on the fourth floor.
