This was our last stop of a central Europe vacation. I was hesitant to book an American business hotel because we were looking for charm and adventure. Since our young adult daughter was meeting us and staying with us for a few nights we decided to go ahead and book at Marriott so we could be certain to get a room with at least 2 beds. The location was great, central to the things we wanted to do and see. The hotel has a modern feel and look unlike the buildings surrounding it (Personally I am not sure this is a good thing.) Upon check in the lobby was pretty packed with tourists checking in and out. After a short wait we got our room - which although it was what we asked for - was quite disappointing. It had 2 double beds and a rollaway. It had a view of the river but not of the castle. There was absolutely no room to move. We went to inquire about getting a room with a queen/king and a roll away thinking there might be more room. For an additional charge we were offered a suite with executive privileges which we grabbed. The suite was spacious but weird. It had a king size bed and they brought a roll away. It had a dining table with 6 cushioned arm chairs. It had a desk and another easy chair - but no real sitting area. No sofa. Not sure what one would ever do with a dining table for 6. There was a counter with a coffee maker and a mini bar. The bathroom was totally unremarkable. The view was of the river but again not of the castle . Executive privileges were well worth the price. Breakfast, snacks, hot appetizers, beer, wine, spirits, and a beautiful outdoor patio on the 10th floor overlooking the river. Service in the lounge was impeccable. There was also a computer and free wifi. it was a nice stay - but nothing about the hotel screams Budapest.
