“1 Female, 6 Days in Moscow on Business”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Hotel located on famous Tverskaya Street. The Tverskaya Street area is the most expensive shopping street in Moscow and Russia and is the centre of nightlife and entertainment and twenty minutes walk from the Kremilin and Red Square. The Hotel staff are very friendly and do speak English if you don't speak Russian. The hotel rooms are very clean and comfortable and if you want a quiet room ask for a room on the courtyard side, though having said that, the air conditioning unit continually hums even though it is switched off. Some meals I ate meals in the restaurant and the quality is as you would expect from the Marriott, some of the descriptions are not what they seem and it is best to ask. Breakfasts were typical european breakfast, evey taste under the sun was catered for but I preferred the cold buffet, somehow the English are the only ones capable of cooking a full English, (that's just my experience). There is a gym and spa, hairdressers and some expensive shops on the lower ground floor. The only disappointment was the internet connection massively expensive in your room but there is free WiFi but only the ground floor by Reception.

As a single female on business I was within walking distance of my workplace so did not feel out of place or uncomfortable walking to and from work. Crossing the roads was a lesson in itself, you have to use underpasses to cross the major roads and these are dotted along the street, but in some instances you might have to walk 1/4 mile to find one and then walk the 1/4 mile back on the opposite side of the road to get where you are going to!

Taxis can be a bit dodgy in Moscow, unlike London where you can step out and hail one safely. If you are on your own always ask the hotel (or your workplace) to organise a car for you to take you to your destination and pick you up. Pre-arrange your travel to and from the airport also as you don't know who is a taxi driver and who is moonlighting. The state taxi drivers do have id badges and I was quoted 3,500 roubles to drive me to the hotel whilst waiting for my driver, lucklily my driver arrived.

Room Tip: If you are given a roadside room ask if you can be moved to the courtyard side or move up above the...

Well located, minutes to the Kremlin and related goverment offices, and several theatres. Opulent, as are all the large chain hotels in this district, with prices to match. There is an excellent basement swimming pool and gym. Rooms are spacious and clean. At $30 per day in rooms (though free in the lobby), the internet is a major disappointment - it is unreliable and there does not appear to be a system to monitor connectivity problems unless they are reported. If you are not keen to spend the $40 for the buffet breakfast, try the Starbucks a minute away.

The hotel is conveniently located and tries for a grand marble/mirrored foyer and reception that is a bit old hat.
The breakfast buffet has a good selection...but the cold id better than the hot!.
The rooms and bathrooms in particular are a bit dated but they are spacious and clean.

Overall satisfactory for a business trip

Spent my birthday in Grand. Everything was very good - room, hotel location, great swimming pool! But service left much to be desired - a person from housekeeping entered the room even without knocking, when there was Don't disturb sign. They also forgot about my b-day and I received a cake only after my boyfriend called Concierge desk. But still hotel is very good and all the rest was excellent

This is another great hotel of the Marriott chain. It is comfortable with all the amenities you could wish for. Great location, near to many of the significant attractions. Walking distance to Red Square and to Metro. Food was great and the service exceptional.

Room Tip: Do not drink the tap water. Take care with the mini-bar as it has electronic surveillance that will...

I am a frequent traveller to Moscow, and have already stayed in several hotels. Most of them were disappointing. The Marriott brand has always been something that I can trust, sort of an escape. But the Moscow Marriott is a shame. The hotel is a melting pot, with hundreds of people all over.
The hotel is extremely expensive for what it offers.

Best price for quality and location hotel in Moscow. Walking distance to most important sights, and Metro not that far away if you want. Service is up and down, dependent on staff, but considering where you are it's very good. Rooms are comfortable and all amenities are nicely presented. Buffet breakfast is very complete, offering good selection of foods. All requests have always been met - albeit sometimes a bit slowly. Levels of English comprehension very greatly among staff.

Room Tip: ask for rooms not on Tverskaya (main street) as they can be a bit noisy.
