While typically I would suggest a boutique hotel for its charm, and proximity to the city, I wound up cashing in my Hilton points for a one-night stay at the Hilton Munich City (to extend a buisness trip into the weekend and see the sights in Munich with my wife).
I was more than pleasantly surprised about the great Italian neighborhood surrounding this hotel. My wife and I had a great dinner at a pizza place just up the street overlooking a beautiful fountain, we walked to ice cream shop, and found many families playing in the park nearby.
Transportation to Marienplatz was actually under the hotel, and it was two stops away - couldn't be more ideal to get in and get out of the city center. We grabbed bikes for the day, and toured the beer gardens, lovely...a great Bravarian experience!
Oh, and transportation from the airport on the S8 ended up under the hotel as well. 35 minutes in and out.
Anyways, the location was perfect, I was able to enjoy Munich central, and the surrounding neighborhood, and conveniently make my flights. I would highly recommend it to anyone, possibly over charming boutiques...
The only HUGE drawback, was the nearly $40/day for internet access (28 Euro) - I am quite dissapointed in Hilton for fleecing the common traveller, I understand that they are preying on corporate expense accounts, but $40 just crazy...
