When we arrived in Bristol, we found we had accidentally booked into the wrong Marriott - the City Centre one. We particularly wanted the Royal because it has a dedicated underground garage, whereas the City Centre hotel uses the adjacent NCP. As it was our fault, and the hotel was full, we thought we were in for a disappointment, but the Manager found us a room, cancelled the wrong booking, rebooked us in the Royal - all with a smile!
The room was pleasant and comfortable with a view of the Waterside, and had all the facilities you would expect, Wi-fi, some Sky stations on the TV, fridge - but one of those 'you pay if you move a can' type (small niggle), tea tray with biscuits. In the bathroom, the overbath shower was good, and there were bathrobes and slippers....and nice toiletries.
We did not eat in the hotel, but service in the bar was good, and all public areas were clean and tidy with no signs of wear, even in the corridors leading to the garage. The only signs of wear were in the lift, on the control panel.
Just one thing - there was some noise at night on Friday and Saturday when the pubs and clubs closed, so try to get a room on the quiet side, if possible.
We would definitely come back again to this hotel.
