We picked the Marriott because of its proximity to Brisbane's CBD and for the potential views of the river. We had a room on the 26th floor and the vista looking out over Kangaroo Point and the Gabba were all I could have asked for. Watching sunrises reflected on the glass fronted skyrises of Eagle Street was an amazing experience too. The hotel is situated very close to Eagle Street with its Sunday market, plenty of really good restaurants and the river cat. The cat takes you to New Farm where you can explore Chinatown & The Valley. If you feel energetic, get the cat up to Bulimba and have breakfast, lunch or dinner - you won't be disappointed. The hotel is an easy river walk to the Botanic Gardens too.
The hotel is what you'd expect a Marriott to be - large, comfortable but inevitably impersonal. It has all the usual amenties but its business centre rates for using the internet are outrageous - around $9 for 15 minutes! A walk to the nearest internet cafe was the answer given we weren't taking a lap top around with us on our travels.
So, overall, it's all you'd expect but not more, and therefore a good, not a great recommendation.
