While I ordinarilly would stay at a local hotel, I had Marriott points to use and I am glad I did. Just about every room has a view of the Danube and the Palace across the river. The staff is very helpful and almost everyone speaks english. The concierge arranged for taxis for both drop-offs and pick-ups so we didnt have to worry about the questionable charging ethics of the independent cabbies. While the air conditioning performance is not up to cushy american standards, it did help take the edge off during the summer. Proximity to the shopping, restaurants, and boat tours is hard to beat. But the biggest benefit of this hotel is only available to the elite Marriott patrons or those willing to pay a little more for their stay. The Concierge Lounge has a large patio on (not quite) the top floor with a commanding 270deg view of the city. Breakfast is served in the morning; bottled water and soft drinks are available all day (a boon when water is absolutely required in the summer); and at night the evening meal and bar are open. Unlike the US concierge rooms, this one has some liquor, wine, and beer all gratis.
After a long day of sightseeing, retire the patio and enjoy watching the boats with a cold Dreher.
While there is no pool for the kids, take a taxi to one of the famous public baths (see my review on that as well).
