Stayed there for a team bonding.check in was very smooth and just an advice to the front desk staff to respect the guest in front of your colleague while he is dealing with the guest. Room is clean ( for non smoking) but my colleague commented the room is having bad smell in the smoking room ( might a smoke... More

The breakfast and especially dinner buffets are arguably the best in Riyadh. Unfortunately the amount of noise that this hotel generates is completely unsettling. For example they have this tiny compact vacuum cleaner that roars like the humming of Airbus 380!!! The hallways are not acoustically inclined so any talking, walking or crying children in the opposing rooms is clearly... More

Two things knock this Marriott from perfect rankings. First is Location. Our business takes us near the center of the city, and getting in and out on any work day is a hassle. There are hotels in the center of town and unless you're an addict of Marriott points (like my co-workers), you'll be wiser picking something closer (all the... More

No wifi working well..... Not good service.......... Transportation is really an experience you do not want to have......... This by far the worst Marriot hotel I have stayed in.......... Price to quality ratio is really poor..........

Relatively new, Nice and compact hotel. The food is great with wide selections at breakfast and dinner. The hotel is far from the crowd yet close to the main entries to Riyadh. Nice size gym, the pool is a bit small;good for a quick dip:)Both on the 4th floor overlooking the Diplomatic Quarter and --the Ritz to the right.

Just at the end of the capital. Near the Rits Carlton. Small lobby safe place you need a car because nothing near . Stay away of the middle or last rooms . It's far far away I mean the rooms of the main gate.

Asked for king size and they checked me into a room on the first floor with a KSB but the view of a high wall painted burnt orange. Asked for a room higher up with a view and they gave me one on 2nd floor. No more KSBs so I got two double beds which I don't particularly like when... More

Spacious room (about 4 X 8 m) with nice furnishings. The room is very under-illuminated. There is that crazy frosted window (see other reviews). TV has BBC World. Not well soundproofed room-to-room or from the outside (call to prayer easily heard). Wi-Fi is wireless, or in room, with a cable (provided) at 100MBS. Very fast and reliable; included in my...

Visited for 2 days while lecturing at a local hospital; room was nicely-appointed, clean and quiet. Included breakfast was excellent. Location is a bit remote, needed a car or taxi to get just about anywhere of interest.
