“Luxury at its best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

We stayed in Hotel Marina, Shimla for 1 night. When we saw our room we were like 'wow' what a room. The interiors of the hotel are superb. I do not think there is any other hotel in Shimla so luxurious and posh. We stayed in superior room located on the 3rd floor. The view from the room was okay but the rooms are spacious and very tastefully done.

Buffet breakfast was very good.

This hotel is 10mins walk from the mall road so it is peacefully located away from the crowd though very near too.
It is located strategically in vip area near to high court and secretariat.

Has ample parking for cars which is a big advantage in a place like shimla. They have basement parking as well as upper level parking.

Rooms service was quick.

Only few things I would like to mention. We had to wait for atleast 45 mins to get our room as it was getting ready. We already had a conversation on phone before reaching the hotel to inform the hotel people about when we would be reaching. Still they took lot of time to give us the room.
Minibar was empty,bathroom slippers were missing.

Overall we had a very pleasant stay and definitely want to come back, relax and rejuvinate at the Marina Shimla.

I stayed in The Marina for 4 days with my family amongst another. I have to say that everything about the Hotel displays Quality. Excellent Location, in terms of approachability to The Mall, and still away from the crowd. Very courteous staff, Excellent food, beautiful rooms, and wonderful architecture. I stayed there during mid-June, and it was extremely peaceful there, instead of all Shimla being full of crowd. Would definitely visit again.

Room Tip: All the rooms have the same view, although travellers should prefer a room on a higher floor.

I stayed here for 3 days with my wife. It's a newly built hotel with great interior. Recommended to all those who are foodies and who want to stay in city. Request for rooms in upper floor so that u get a good view of the valley .I have rated 4 because I did not get good view room. All over memorable experience.

A great position, and as the hotel is new, the facilities are all very good. Everything about the room was of excellent quality. I used the Business Centre, and the staff were very happy to oblige although it was late at night.
Dinner in their restaurant was outstanding. The "Mutton" (Goat) Biryani was exceptional, and I didn't have a better one in the following 3 weeks. Breakfast was average only.

Marina is a new hotel that is located a few yards away from the main mall road in Shimla. The location is quite good because one can just walk out of the hotel premises and onto the mall road, which has become really clean, no garbage dumped on the road, no traffic allowed and therefore no pollution. Only some authorized vehicles are allowed to go on this mall road. Marina hotel stands out in the contemporary furniture, fixtures in the bathroom and clean linen. Hotel staff is courteous, helpful and very polite. Mr. Devender Sharma, the manager, deserves special mention here for the cooperation provided to us during our stay in Marina.
I would definitely stay there again whenever i go to Shimla and would recommend to my friends as well.

Room Tip: We took a room on the third floor which i feel was the best. But can't really say for the other...

Stayed in Marina for 3 nights in April 2014 to attend a wedding in the city. When you think about quality stay options in Shimla, the list is limited. This is a new property and definitely makes the cut. Great location with ample parking. 5 minutes walk to the Mall area which is a pedestrian only zone. Gorgeous rooms!! Small but very tastefully designed , affording some amazing views of the valley. Food quality was variable during our stay although mostly good. The continental/Italian dishes were better than the Indian style breakfast. All in all this is a great place. Have been recommending it to my friends and family!

Room Tip: valley view rooms definitely!!
