Went to Munich for the christmas markets and stayed at the Marriott because my husband often stays at the Marriott Munich airport when working.
The hotel was in a good location and we found it quite easily from Munich Ost railway station. If traveling from the airport, try to get on the S8 rather than the S1 as it is a considerably shorter journey. Trams pass the hotel and it is easy to get to the rail/underground system.
Check in was good and staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the highest floor and was fabulous. The kitchen area was first class with all facilities including hob, dishwasher, fridge and coffee machine. Everything was provided in the way of cutlery and crockery, if you were intending a longer stay you would easily have been able to prepare a meal and there was also a table and two chairs to eat at. The room was warm and cosy with good quality beds and linens.
The bathroom was also clean and well equipped. Less able people may struggle to get into the bath, which had a shower over, but I believe that other rooms have a walk in shower instead.
There was a nice bar area between the Residence and Courtyard and public areas were clean and bright.
Breakfast was the only point which made me consider 4 stars instead of 5. There was a full buffet but over the weekend the breakfast room was VERY busy and the clearing of tables and replenishing of breakfast items and cutlery/plates etc was unacceptably slow. The coffee machines seemed unreliable and there was a general chaos round the buffet. That said, when we went for breakfast on Monday, after 9 it was SO much better. Obviously business people had been and gone and people staying for the weekend had left. Lower numbers meant a much improved experience so I went with the 5 star option!
All in all a lovely hotel, friendly staff and first class room. I would recommend and I would stay there again.
