The Marriott is ideally located above Tennoji station. This will link you directly by train to Kansai International Airport. The shopping centre below is very good and includes 3 levels of restaurants and a basement food floor. Easy access through Tennoji station to the rest of Osaka. The reception staff were efficient and checked us in prior to the 3pm regulatory time. The room was spacious, well furnished and designed. The views are amazing; floor to ceiling glass that provides great scenery.
Where this hotel falls down in the hotel restaurant Cooka. The first morning we went for breakfast at 8:00am and there was a big line outside. We had to wait for half an hour just to get a table. Once inside the food range was limited; basic yoghurts, hot foods. An unusual mix. The hot food was cold and most items not refilled often enough. After your initial order for tea/coffee there is no refill unless you call a waitress 2-3 times. I have to say that some people treat the buffet breakfast as a sport and it was competitive on both mornings we ate there. We did try the buffet dinner and that was no exception. The food is of low quality, not refilled and not a large range.
As there are not a lot of restaurants to eat at for breakfast or dinner, I would probably chose a hotel closer to Dotonbori or Shinsaibashi next time. This is disappointing as the accommodation side is good, just not the food.
