The Marriott Courtyard Messe Vien is a new, clean, and modern hotel. The hotel is located in a quiet corporate office park, and is directly across from the Messe Vien conference center. Due to the building shape, several rooms on each floor are quite a bit larger than the rest. Service was good, and the staff was fluent in English. Breakfast – as well as internet – was included in my €178/night room charge and was a delicious assortment of fresh foods and fruit. The Vienna subway is extremely efficient and will take you anywhere you need to be. It is about a 2 minute walk to the U2 Krieau station, and from there is only 10 minutes to the city center (U2 to Praterstern station, then U1 to Stephansplatz). If you stay in town past 1:00am, it is only a €10 cab ride back. One bit of caution on cab rides: The direct route from the city center to the Courtyard takes you along the northeast side of the Messe Vien. However, most cab drivers will take you along the southwest side – between the Messe Vien and Prater park/Vienna Casino to show you the large selection of prostitutes available after hours. If you’re not interested in a display of too much flesh stuffed into too little fabric, be sure to tell your driver! A cab from the airport is about 20 minutes and cost about €35.
Overall, I had a great experience at the hotel and would stay again.
