Another of my TDY trips to Suriname.
I arrived in country at about 15:30 local time. The Embassy driver picked me up and took me to my hotel. On the way we stopped by King's, a large, new liquor store. I got two bottles of Merlot for about $60 SRD ($20).

This was my second trip to Paramaribo. I stayed at the same hotel, the Courtyard Marriott, but this time I had a room on the fifth floor overlooking the Suriname River. The views were beautiful in the mornings and evenings. I guess the river is about 0.5 miles to 0.75 miles wide at this point.

Everyone had to get up early to get the truck first in line for the ferry over to Suriname. Arriving at the port at 6.30am we were the first in line but the trouble began shortly after...

When that transaction was complete, the driver took me back to the Marriott. I checked in again for one night. I ended up exactly one floor above where I had been earlier, 614 versus 514.
At 06:00 the next day, the driver took me back to the airport. I made it on the flight and back to Georgetown with zero problems.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
For me, this is the only choice for a place to stay when I am in Paramaribo. The only downside is the hotel is not closer to some of the sites and tourist destinations in town. The upside includes the fact that it is a Marriott, so one knows what to expect. Another biggie for me is the staff. They are always very kind and accommodating.
I have stayed in three different types of rooms; standard, Jacuzzi, and river view. I believe my favorite is the river view. It is relaxing to go out on the veranda and watch the activity on the river.
The food at the hotel is very good.
