“Very good. Very expensive.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

If this place has a theme, it's 'just enough'. While the main events - bedding, cleanliness, portion sizes when you pay for them - are faultless, there's a tight financial grip on the non-essentials that's quite at odds with the new Marriotts you may have tried in the Middle East, where they're practically throwing soft product at you.
If you're reasonably healthy the best option to get here from the airport is the train to the central station (DKK72 return). At the station exit onto Bernstorffsgade (facing Tivoli Gardens, literally across the road), turn right and head along Bernstorffsgade to the water. It's a straight walk, reasonably paved, about ten minutes depending on your fitness level. As you approach the water you'll see the Marriott on your left.
Quick check-in. Didn't go well for a few minutes after that; the room key worked for the room, but not for the elevators or the lounge. Quickly recoded. I'd asked for a king, the room had two large singles. No big deal with just me in the room, but...
The room itself was on the eighth floor, with a stunning waterfront view. Very large by European standards, large bathroom as well with shower/bath combination, but skimpy on the consumables and no robe/slippers. Neither a big issue for me. YMMV. The work desk by the window's paired with a very comfortable wingback chair and footrest, ideal for unproductive moments watching activity on the water. Too few power points, the bare minimum of wardrobe space as well, but the big nuisance is the minibar, of the '20 seconds to comply' type. I like a fridge to store my own snacks, plainly the hotel doesn't. If that doesn't put you off, Copenhagen Mall's a few minutes along the waterfront, a very pleasant walk.
Internet provided modest but sustained speed, and I've been running two devices simultaneously without a problem.
Food is very good, at a predictably high price. Free breakfast for MR gold/plat is served in the lounge on the 11th floor. The choices cover the minimum you'd expect : fruit, yogurts, a small selection of cold meats, bacon, sausage and scrambled eggs, plus juices, milk and water. They also put out light bites until 19H30, and there are cold drinks on draft, coffee and water. Service in the Pier 5 lounge and Midtown Grill restaurant can be a little slow but was always friendly and the food was superb. If you want to work it off there's a gym in the basement which is among the largest I've seen in a European Marriott (albeit still quite small) or do what the locals do and hit the waterfront. One of the real pleasures of staying here was stepping out onto the waterfront terrace and heading into the city, away from the traffic, or following the walkway all the way towards the outer burbs. If you're looking for a hotel deep in the heart of Copenhagen you can do better, but I preferred the relative tranquility around the Marriott.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

I enjoyed four nights at this hotel. It was nice to walk along the waterfront. There is a very nice, large shopping mall only a few blocks away. Convenient to Tivoli and the train station. My room on the 7th floor was very big - especially for Europe. Elevators are fast but my room was a bit of a walk from the elevator. Window opens for fresh air. Food prices, especially room service are extremely high. Internet in the room was $30/day but free in the lobby. The breakfast was excellent with a large selection and cooked to order omelettes and eggs.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the water.

We didn't expect much walking into this hotel considering it's a big chain. It's a pleasant surprise that everything about it surpassed the typical big chain hotels.

The staffs throughout the hotel are exceptionally courteous. The room is spacious and spotless.
If there is anything slightly off about it is the location. We like its proximity to Tivoli, but it's good 20-25 mins walk to the other major attractions.

All in all, great experience! We would stay here again the next time we are in Copenhagen.

The room was large, clean, modern and with good air conditioning i.e. cool when you want to sleep. The only downsides are - no internet in the rooms only the lobby, located a bit of a walk from the main drag but not too far and you can walk along the water, and one of the front desk guys was snippy. Note: The Hop On Hop Off buses stop right outside the hotel - great start to getting to know the city. Good smorgasbord - recommend getting the rate with it included. Has a room safe. I would stay again.

Room Tip: Good to have a canal view but with a city view, you see Tivoli Garden. Noticed no street noise on 3r...

This is a pretty good business hotel. Nice sleek modern finish, good furnishings, good choice at breakfast (costs €30!). The room was big and comfortable, with a nice canal view. Big comfy bed and good English language TV channel choice. Could possible do with more wardrobe space. The major downer is the lack of a pool and the fact that (unusually for a 5 star), you don't get bath robes or slippers, which are great if you want to relax after a long day. It's close to the downtown, albeit most of the nicer attractions are on the opposite side of the downtown, but that's not really a problem. Passed the Radisson Blu and this property definitely has a superior location (and external appearance). As with everything in Copenhagen, the hotel is frightfully expensive as are things like drinks at the bar, dinner, in-room movies etc...but that's a feature of this city. You can hire bikes at the hotel for €20 and they're a good safe way to navigate the city, which is flat, with a simply outstanding network of bike lanes. Mini bar prices are extortionate - more so than usual! Overall, this is probably as good a hotel choice in this city as you're likely to discover.

Rooms are spacious and well lit. Bathrooms are decent though the toiletries considering the rates are not upto par. Decent breakfast. It is mainly a business or tour and cruise group hotel. The location on the water is really nice. Internet in the public areas is free. Rooms overlooking the water are better. Tivoli gardens and the main station are a easy walk. The hotel is expensive for the amenities it offers.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view room on the top floor.

We stayed at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel for a few days prior to a cruise. It was centrally located across from Tivoli Gardens and the central train station. When we tried to book the hotel for the night after the cruse it was filled so we booked at the Marriott Hotel instead.

The Marriott was slightly more expensive than the Radisson Blu Royal and as such we expected a nicer hotel. However, comparing the two hotels, I would say the Radisson Blu Royal had better rooms, was more centrally located and had more accommodating staff members. Both hotels were very nice, but if the prices are equal, I would choose the Radisson Blu Royal.
