I stayed here in October 2013 .... fantastic location, very near to Walking street and just across the road from the beach. The hotel is also attached to a shopping mall, with several eating places .... I recommend Sizzlers on the top floor - free salad bar.
My room was newly refurbished ( 635) .... the only problem, and that's why I only gave 4 stars is the bathroom. The shower is located over the bath( would be better if it was separate)and a huge stepover to get into the bath - if you are elderly or disabled, you would not get into it. Also very difficult to get out. NO OTHER PROBLEMS WITH ROOM .... spotlessly clean, air conditioned , mini bar .... all the usual things you would expect in a 5 star hotel. The pool area was excellent .... say hello to the 2 parrots guarding the towels .... all in all an excellent hotel in probably the best location in Pattaya

Room Tip: Rooms next to the shopping mall may be affected by the noise of the air conditioning unit and are ge...

Excellent Marriott bed and facilities, we looked over the pool to the sea beyond.
Massive pool and area with a bar on the side with afternoon happy hour.

This is my 3rd visit thus year and once again the place and staff are wonderful.
Firstly the staff remembered me and sell said hello which is a sweet gesture.
The day I checked in the very lovely cleaner presented to me a pair of shorts I gad accidentally left on my last visit in August. Thus is great customer service.
The hotel us ideally situated for the fun busy area if Pattaya but itself is a haven of peace and quiet. The rear entrance onto Beach Road is ideal and great to pop out as McDonalds KFC Burger King are there for a late snack and cold drink 24 hours.

And finally the best fir me us once again meeting a lady on reception Miss Jantinna who once again is the sweetest and nicest lady I have met and she is still stunningly beautiful and remembered and greeted me.

I cannot recommend thus hotel more highly.

Stayed December 2013 in a Terrace Suite.

Room Tip: Terrace Suites are very quiet and convenient for the Beach Road entrance.

This is an older hotel but the grounds are kept in very good shape and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

I have had two weekend breaks from business trips to Bangkok. The first (in October) I stayed in a deluxe premier room, although a little smaller than I'm use too it was clean and functional but old and and a little tired. The over bath shower is a dated feature that I though was only offered American motels. The air conditioning although working seemed inefficient and even following adjustment the room temperature or humidity didn't seem to change. This was further compounded later that evening when the power went off and the back generator only seemed to run emergency lights. The TV a/c and most of the lights didn't operate until the power was restored some time later. While I fully understand power outage is a common occurrence in Thailand and that backup generators are regularly used, it is unfortunate that this particular one didn't seem to run the facility.

For my second stay (in December) I had a terrace room, it was terrific, the oversized bath with separate shower couldn't have been better.... I would recommend getting the up grade. The executive club reception staff of Kat and Nam were very helpful, and they helped me with my every need. I didn't use the lounge evening snacks and drinks but the sandwiches offered during afternoon tea were very welcome.

The main breakfast buffet caters for virtually every choice and was as good as I've had anywhere in the world however, at 9:30 am on a Sunday morning it was very busy and some people had to wait a while to be seated. (Recommend to get there a little earlier as weekend occupancy was high).

The pool area is good with very refreshing (cool) water, plenty of shade and a cool breeze mid afternoon.

Overall I would return again, the property is reasonable, but the staff make it fantastic. I would also recommend upgrading to the higher standard room.

Room Tip: Up grade to the terrace room
