Marriott Vienna

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 3, 2013

The Marriott across from the City Park and right on the Ring is a very good location and well run hotel. If you’re looking for small hotel charm this is not it if your fine with big hotel, efficacy service and location this place is great -- plus if you work for my company it is where you will stay!! The 8th floor executive lounge has a great view of the park on one side (photo 3 and the city center (photo 1) on the other - sees the photos .

Unique Quality: Location location location this is 5 minuets from Ssaint Stephens the center of the city, just across the city park form the Airport train. You can hop on the 2 trolley in front of the hotel that takes you to the Museum district or to Belvedere palace.

Directions: Close to the heart of the city on the Ringstrasse and is within walking distance to St. Stephen's Cathedral, the opera,

The Vienna Marriott: A very nice hotel in an ideal location

It is hard to love a city as cold, wet, and gray as Vienna was for us in mid-May 2009; but it is easy to love a hotel with the wonderful beds, friendly staff, and ideal location that we experienced at the Vienna Marriott. Best of all, we got a great discount on the internet (more about that later).

In Vienna the better hotels are strung like beads along the ring boulevard which encircles the Innere Stadt (former old town). The Vienna Marriott is located on the east side of the ring between the historic Radisson SAS Hotel and the modern Hotel am Parkring.

Although the Vienna Marriott does not have the fantastic Danube views of its sister property in Budapest (in Vienna the Danube is some distance from the city center), it is across the street from the Stadt Park and its famous gold statue of J. Strauss Jr.

From the hotel it is a 10 minute walk through the park to the Wien Mitte train station, which serves the VIE airport by CAT Express (fast) and S-bahn (cheap) trains. Similarly, the Stubentor and Stadt Park U-bahn (subway) stations are each a 5 minute walk, and tram lines 1 and 2 stop directly in front of the hotel. Best of all, the Stephansdom and heart of the inner city are just 10 minutes away.

The Vienna Marriott is definitely a 4 star property, but our standard room lacked a few of the usual 4 star amenities: no robes, no slippers, no coffee or tea pot, and a mini-bar with no space left for personal items. The TV is an older CRT rather than HDTV. There is an internet connection, but there is no radio or Ipod dock.

However, the rooms made up for this in other ways. They are comfortable in size, about 300 sq.ft. total. The beds are fantastic -- pillow top mattresses, ultra-high thread count sheets, extra long duvets, and a choice of four pillows of various sizes and densities.

The decor is an attractive, understated Empire style in pale green and gold. Each room has a bay window, which opens. Only a few rooms are directly on the busy Parkring. Most rooms extend back along the quieter Weihburggasse or (across the hall) overlook the courtyard above the hotel lobby, directly across from offices, which include the U.S. Consulate (the consulate, not the embassy, helps tourists in emergencies).

The granite and tile bathrooms are functional in size, with a single sink and a single tub-shower combo. Lighting is good and mirrors are excellent.

The staff is very friendly. The front desk is very helpful, but unfortunately could not provide a morning check-in.

Non-stop flights to Asia or the Middle East are easier to handle than overnight flights to Europe because they usually provide a full night’s sleep and then arrive in the afternoon, when hotel rooms are ready.

Flying to Europe one usually arrives in the early morning and ends up a street person until afternoon check-in. In our case we left our bags with the concierge, who later delivered them to our room. To stay out of the cold rain we zombied our way to the famous Kunsthistorisches Museum.

We have seen it multiple times before, but at least it is warm and dry, and has comfortable couches where one can safely close ones eyes without being asked to move on, even if one looks and feels like an unmade bed.

Our room rate at the Vienna Marriott did not include the breakfast buffet, which is 27 euros ($38). The continental breakfast buffet is 20 euros ($28). Room service and items in the monitored mini-bar were similarly over-priced.

As a result, we did not consider eating or drinking in any of the hotel restaurants or lounges during our stay. The Innere Stadt has numerous alternatives.

In addition, there is a small but fully stocked Zielpunkt supermarket one block north and west of the hotel on Singerstrasse (beyond the Palais Coburg). There we found a nice split of champagne for exactly one tenth the price of the mini-bar offering, with wonderfully sweet strawberries from Spain and brie from France.

In addition there is a Bila supermarket also on Singerstrasse near the Stephensdom, and a Spar supermarket next to the McDonalds on Schwartzenberg Platz one tram stop south of the hotel. These markets all had fresh fruit, nice bakeries and delis, and good wine selections.

In spite of the terribly cold and wet May weather, we enjoyed Vienna and we loved our stay at the Vienna Marriott. Best of all, we stayed there at the very reasonable rate of $106 per night for a double room, plus $15 in taxes and fees, obtained by bidding for the central Vienna zone on priceline.com .

We wanted to stay at the Marriott again for our return to Vienna in late May, but could not obtain that reasonable rate, so instead we stayed several additional days at the outlying (near the Vienna International Center) NH Danube City Hotel.

But that is another review.

Happy travels!

Directions: Walking distance to Innere Stadt venues.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

A very nice hotel, although a little lacking in character. Enjoyed a stay here in 2006 renewing Marriott points for 2 nights. Otherwise it was probably a bit out of my price range to stay there. Several restaurants on-site although I would recommend getting out to my local restaurants to eat.

Unique Quality: One of few hotels in Vienna (District I) with a swimming pool on site. Great location on the Ringstasse, easy walking to many of the main sites in Vienna.

Very nice business hotel, good sized rooms and (noticeable in June during a heat wave) great air conditioning. We only had two days in Vienna and did not get to use the hotel facilities that much, but the building is attractive and in a great location. It is a short walk to St. Stephen's, and the tram stops in front of the hotel. Unfortunately, it does not have a lot of character; it's sort of like walking into a suburban Marriott in the U.S. All in all, not a bad choice.

Exactly opposite from the Stadtpark Vienna, this miraculous architecture piece is placed on the most famous boulevard of the city.
Only a few minutes walking distance from the most important landmarks of the city, the hotel is an example for elegance, luxury, taste, modernism, comfort, and hospitality.
The spacious rooms, with light and modern facilities, comfortable beds, luxury baths internet connection and much place for agreeable hours, does an unforgettable adventure of your Vienna stop.

Unique Quality: It has an indoor swimming pool and a health club where you can relax after a day's sightseeing.

We stay here because of business and find that the Marriott is like being in any American city. Lovely but all the same. Service is outstanding though and they have an American style bar (Champions) where you can eat American style food and watch American football. The InterContinental is more European but still has no real Viennese character. The advantage is that it has a metro stop across the street and it is next to the very pretty Stadtpark. Both hotels have grossly over priced restaurants, but walk across the street to the park and there's a great little place.

Unique Quality: Marriott has a decent enough pool and both have good workout facilities.

Directions: South side of the ring, near the twin museums
