“Very nice hotel maybe a tad pricey”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

We spent 3 nights here for Christmas 2013. Booked direct on Marriott website since their price included breakfast (other websites were quoting the same price without breakfast). Paid $590 including tax. I chose a double room with 1 king bed so it was very spacious, I think the room would have felt cramped with 2 queen beds in it. I did not go for river view and am glad. Although the balcony they have would have been nice those rooms are overlooking the pool and below is the pool bar so probably noisy. My room #623 was quiet, positioned on the side of the building looking north had a view of the city looking left and the river looking right. Rome was clean and in room tea and coffee was nice although it is also available in the lobby. Check in and out was efficient. Breakfast very nice with local dishes as well as western. Only a couple of things I didn't like - the air con was on too high so impossible to be comfortable inside. We switched it if in the room but it did not warm up much. There was a slight odd smell in the room which I got used to. Housekeeping are not very consistent with changing towels, first day they did not leave face cloths and the second day did not leave any towels at all so I had to phone for them. I had some laundry done, it came back the next day on hangers but had not been dried so smelled damp. 15 min walk gets you into town, no sidewalk but it's OK. We got the shuttle back to the airport and that was efficient. I would stay here again.

I stayed here in May 2013. It was extremely comfortable, nice clean rooms, great decor. Breakfast is extensive with lots of variety, hotel shuttle to and from the airport which is great for the business traveller. This is a convenient hotel for the business traveller because it is in Paramaribo, the city centre of Suriname. There's a business centre at the front of the lobby where you can browse the internet, send faxes etc and internet is available in rooms at no extra cost. All in all a good stay, relatively good service.

Stayed here for a week on business trip. Check in was smooth, Room was clean, Barfridge doesn't work, Lots of channels on the TV have a bad signal. Cleaning staff just walked into the room without knocking. Breakfast is really good with a nice selection. The pool is also nice and clean, Pool Bar serves nice and cold drinks, but don't expect the barman to come to the loungers, you have to go to the bar to order.
They have a mystery accounting system, as the front desk cannot explain why certain bills had $ 0.01 added to it,while others not, she ensured me it is not a rounding of, and they know about it, but can't explain it. Had to wait one afternoon for an hour for a ice cold pizza. The rest of the time the food was good, hot and tasty. The staff in the dining room is really very friendly, helpfull and attentive to what is going on, They strive to serve the clients in the dining room and is making a good job of it.

Room Tip: Do not take a room at the end of the passage by the Ice machine room, it is noisy, Rooms X28. Also...

Local Surinamese cuisine in hotel restaurant is delicious and a nice treat. I wish all Marriotts had the same quality of local dishes. This is as good as other restaurants in the area. Clearly, reviewers who did not like the food were not open to trying local dishes and were only ordering items that were USA related.

Traveling from Trinidad to Suriname does come with its challenges, namely the times of the flights in (late night) and out (early morning). The Courtyard definitely made this a little easier with a reliable shuttle service to and from the airport, easy check-in and advanced check-out, and a prompt wake up call in the morning. The location just outside of Paramaribo itself is also a plus, as there is less noise, traffic etc, but the proximity is still close enough to get anywhere in town within 10-15 minutes. I will definitely be staying here again on my next business trip to Suriname.

Room Tip: Since I travel for business I never use the blackout curtains, I would recommend taking a room on th...

Arriving into hotel at 2am, the front desk attendant seemed very abrupt. It got better by daybreak when the dining room staff displayed a welcoming attitude and invited me by name, to the buffet.
The meals are fairly ok and the service staff were by far very courteous. Downside, hand and face towels seemed a bit worn and discoloured. On my lasy night, dinner was almost a disaster but was averted by creativity and sincerity of my attendant. A fairly ok stay.

As a business traveler you look for a hotel that has a high level of service. The service from the hotel staff was okay. They indeed seemed to be well trained but it seemed that the hotel lacked some level of cohesion in the organisation as a whole.
The cleaning of the room could have been better. Also the restaurant food was adequate but not of a high quality. The breakfast could have been better. The choice was limited. The hotel amenities are limited. I got a mystery phone call when I was taking a bath. I rushed to pick up the phone. Someone from the front desk asked if I was in the restaurant just now. I said no and the person said thank you and hanged up. Later I asked in the lobby about this phone call and nobody seemed to have a clue and I was brushed off.
For the morning I left, I asked for a wake up call at 4 AM. They forgot my wake up call so the taxi driver had to rush to the airport to catch my plane. They also forgot the pre-ordered take out breakfast that morning.
