I was to stay here for 3 nights for a regional company event. I was arriving a day early and asked my assistant to specifically double confirm that my resrvation will be 1 day earlier than the rest of our large group. She confirmed, the hotel claimed they were expecting a 2nd confirmation on the day which she didn't do because she wasn't aware of it. Arrived in Bucharest on a 1a.m. Arrival flight. No driver waiting at the airport was first sign of trouble. Took taxi to hotel and they had no record of the reservation and no available rooms :-(. Ended up at the Ibis down the road for the first night and it was 2.30 a.m. At least the Ibis had free wifi. On day 2 all hell broke loose - was given room upgrade apologies, etc.
Hotel itself is very regal and luxurious. The building is a huge Ceausescu built government ministry overlooking the People's Palace and Defence Ministry that has been given a total overhaul. To get to the old town where all the night life is (Lipscani) you need to take a cab so if you want to party and crawl back drunk to your bed this will not be a great choice especially since you will almost certainly get ripped off by a Dacia Logan driving local cabbie who on hearing the word Marriott will immediately see you as a euro stuffed wallet that will feed his family fir the next month.
Otherwise a typical international Marriott so a lot of glitz, chintz and "Opulence, I has it" kind of place with only the lap giraffes missing and Bucharest is a great, fun and vibrant city so enjoy!
