Good For Solo
Great Location for Shopping
We chose to stay at the Hamburg Marriott Hotel as it was close to the Congress Center where my husband was attending a conference.The hotel was very well maintained even though it did not have a contemporary design and feel to it.The staff and concierge were very helpful.The best part about this hotel is its location.It is walking distance to most of the attractions and also a great base for shopping.The only down side is that the breakfast was not included in the room rate.
Excellent Comfort in a Prime Location
Interesting how some hotels that are billed as 4* properties really don't quite fit the bill. Well, the Marriott really does fit the bill - I think this is as fine a 4* as you'll find anywhere.
I was able to get a great rate through Priceline to stay here - otherwise it would have far out of my normal range of accomodation. (Internet rates here are usually around $220 US a night.) Things started out well when I was treated very well at the check-in counter, and given a room that was in no-way one of those "Priceline specials" that certain hotel chains assign you. My room was quite large by European standards, with two comfortable double-beds and an excellent street view. The beds were firm, well-sheeted, and supremely inviting - just what a busy VT traveller wants when returning after a full day of experiences.
Directions: just a bit to the west of the city center, the streets around the Marriott had many antique shops and luxury boutiques. Also close to the Opera House.
Euros 159-235 depending on room type as at 06 Aug 02
Unique Quality: This is a tremendous hotel 5 star with the standards of comfort and service you would expect. Location is excellent with the Alster, buses and underground stops all withiin 2-6 minute walks.
Not far to the Alster Pavilion where you can get good value for money buffet breakfast.
I am due to stay here on 10 Aug 02 for 4 nights. On my return I will add my impressions here , but for now from the web:
This was the first Marriott in Germany, and it remains the showpiece - from the extraordinary barrel-roof ceiling of the reception area to the expansive comfort of its guest rooms. The rooms' modern green furniture isn't particularly inspired, but you do get amenities such as pay-per-view TV and modem and fax lines. The hotel has a central location - an unbeatable spot on Hamburg's Gänsemarkt, in one of the best shopping areas. The hotel's aptly named American Place is one of the better city-center restaurants. The health club is one of the most modern in northern Germany. 277 rooms, 5 suites. Restaurant, room service, in-room data ports, minibars, pool, gym, hair salon, massage, sauna, bar, piano bar, baby-sitting, dry cleaning, laundry service, concierge, business services, meeting room, parking (fee), no-smoking rooms.
