Here's a quick overview of the hotel followed by some tips and notes on Cologne.
Room: Upgraded to a lovely big modern suite, not too corporate, pictures of the cathedral, Nespresso style coffee machine etc. No views over town but I believe some of the rooms have nice views. Only downside was no free mineral water, and 3 Euros seems a bit excessive.
Service: Good service and the lady who brought my welcome gift to the room was particularly charming. One nice touch is that the welcome gift comes with a boxed souvenir glass (at least I hope this was part of the gift as I took this home)
Location: Great location, 5 minutes walk from the train station and cathedral.
Directions: From Koln Hauptbahnhof (main train station), exit the platform into the main departure hall and exit the building on the left side where you will see a curry wurst cabin and a Best Western. Walk towards the Best Western- this is the corner of Johannistrasse, take the road and the Marriott is on your right.
Eating: Whilst in Cologne, I would recommend trying Der Hans Stube at the Excelsior Hotel- great food and service. Also, at the other end of the cost spectrum, the bratwurst, currywurst, bretzeln,and various bakery treats are always worth a try.
Cologne: Worth a visit with a nice old town, nice views on the river, atmospheric traditional pubs. Particularly worthwhile at Christmas for the markets or during the annual carinval.
