“Good Hotel With Excellent Service; Time For Marriott To Expand In Melbourne”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

The Melbourne Marriott is well run and provides friendly service in a very convenient location. It is smaller and more a ‘boutique’ hotel than a normal Marriott in the US and now with its refurbishment complete the rooms are to a good standard. With nearly 100 stays at this hotel over the years I cannot complain about the service and as a Marriott Rewards customer I often get upgraded particularly when the hotel is full. The Executive lounge provides good service and good quality food and most times early check in is available. The staff hasbeen well trained and usually remember me and my name at check in. If there is an issue it is the cost of valet parking which used to be free for Rewards members and because it is the only Marriott in Melbourne it can be difficult to get a booking. It is time Marriott looked to alternative properties in Australia such as Courtyard as competitors seem to be ahead of them in securing new properties.

Dear Oldjack,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a detailed review on one of your many stays here with us at Melbourne Marriott.

It is pleasing to hear that you continue to enjoy the service we provide, and have been a loyal customer of ours for a few years now.

With regards to the parking I would be happy to talk with you further about this. Whilst it did used to be free for Rewards Members that policy has changed. As a loyal guest I would like to see what we can do for you so please feel free to get in contact with me directly at the hotel and we can discuss further.

Sincerely,

Harry Singh

Booked a suite at the marriott for the Melbourne races
The staff were friendly and efficient, but you do notice a difference in service compared to an Asian based Marriott e.g. The bottled water was not replaced when the room was serviced. A small thing but important for travelers.

The breakfast in the exec lounge could do with some more hot options.
The restaurant downs stairs was excellent, but this is Melbourne so it has to be.

The furniture has an Art Deco feel but a couch would have been useful for the group gathering.
Not doubt we drove the staff mad with calls for more ice.

Room Tip: The exec club is not value compared to clubs overseas.

We arrived very late at night with exhausted young children and the service from the staff was outstanding. We found this to be a great hotel in a central location. The room was beautiful and the service was exceptional - all for a reasonable price!

This hotel is on the edge of the hypercentre and easy distance for the park, the Chinese restaurant area and the market (free tram). The rooms are spacious and comfortable. There can be a bit of a queue in the morning around 9am, so it's a good idea to settle your bill the night before and keep away from the mini bar! There is one restaurant. It's not five star, but it's reliable. I love my take away a cappuccino in the morning. I look forward to it.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms off the road.

I was lucky enough to stay here for 3 nights. The staff were very friendly and especially helpful with getting me a room a little early, as I had just got off a 5am flight from overseas and was extremely tired. The staff here were also helpful with regards to where things were to see and also obtaining internet service.
Thanks again for a great time.
