“Expensive for Brisbane for a dated accommodation.”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

While the Marriott is placed on the river it is not quite the city centre. Good breakfast bar however the rooms are very last decade and overpriced compared to other 5 stars in Brisbane.
Also they wanted another 20 dollars for interest usage for 24 hrs even though in a suite and executive floor.
Nice and clean but overpriced and a bit dated.

Really nice hotel! Great rooms - large and comfy. Nice bar in lobby area usually busy and a good buzz. Helpful staff.
Location not great but what is in Brisbane. Walking distance to most things or taxi.
Great hotel gym.

And yet another beautiful experience at the Marriott Hotel.
Rooms are large and spacious with sensational comfy beds, Manchester is crisp and fluffy and pillows are beautiful.
Bathroom is large and clean with lovely accessories and huge bath towels.
Tea, coffee, hairdryer etc.
Front desk service was friendly and welcoming and staff in the restaurant/bar were great also.
Breakfast is amazing with everything you could want.
Running/walk track is next to the hotel and some great bars and restaurants are just a short stroll away on the river bank. South bank is a 10min cab ride.
We would stay here again without hesitation. A really pleasant experience but then again we are yet to find a Marriott hotel we have not been happy with. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room, the views are beautiful

We booked an overnight Friday stay at this hotel as we were going to a nearby restaurant and didn't want to bother with parking and wanted to spoil ourselves. Got a great deal on a third party website which include a deluxe city view room with a king size bed, full buffet breakfast for 2, complimentary parking and one $25 fuel voucher. When we arrived, we were upgraded to a river view room looking towards the Kangaroo Point reach of the river. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast buffet was excellent. Would definitely recommend for a couple looking to visit one of the many restaurants nearby. We couldn't fault any of the service staff.

Our Pre-paid by travel agent rooms were not ready @ 6pm check in.
They tried to palm us off with put up beds extra in the room. Only when I produced the receipts for payment/confirmation did they give us correct rooms.
Reception staff gave impression of being arrogant.
Dinner in the restaurant was a nightmare as they had a hen/stag party in of about 12 who were so noisy it was unreal.
Is this really what a 4/5* hotel wants to portray ??
Concierge staff helpful.
Changing money was an ordeal!! The staff member scrutinised Gbp with the queens head on it ??? And confessed to not even knowing what her Prime Minister looked like !!!! Sorry Mr Rudd, your lost in Brisbane.

Expensive for what it is. May carry Marriott name but???? Not the rest.
I don't use Marriott a lot but have a card which didn't count to much. Maybe ill throw it away also.

Yet another hotel trying to pull a fast one on check in!! Don't why these hotels do it ! Travellers know what they've booked so why treat us like idiots
We had booked two twin rooms and yes we're given a twin and a double ! We refused to take it and on providing the paperwork were quickly changed to two twins despite being told the hotel was fully booked. !!!
Rooms okay but far too hot, staff friendly and helpful
It's very close to everything so very handy
If stay again just watch them in check in

Check in was fast and efficient. Upon check in we were offered a glass of sparkling wine each (no charge) which was a nice touch.

The room was large and clean. The bed was comfortable and everything worked. Air conditioning was quiet and worked well. However subsequent cleaning was very average, especially the bathroom which always had large pools of water on the floor after cleaning and it was evident the toilet seat was never cleaned.

Hotel WiFi (the entry level selection) was fine for email and general browsing and ok for Skye voice but not video.

Breakfast was excellent with a good range of choice and eggs made to order. The buffet hot was actually hot. Not just warm, but nice and hot. Especially the baked beans, scrambled egg and bacon. Coffee made to order was excellent. Service was also some of the best I have come across. It really made getting in and out quick at breakfast time. Eat breakfast at the hotel!

The hotel has a bar and prices are reasonable and service good.

Keep an eye out for their 'door deals' where they hang a daily offer on your hotel door e.g a free bottle of wine with dinner. This was excellent and we used them during our stay as it was cold outside.

Overall the hotel service is excellent.

Check out was fast and efficient with no billing errors.

I would happily stay at this hotel again.
