Historical Traveler Reviews Hamburg Marriott Hotel
Standard Business Marriot
Standard Marriott. Reasonable if booked through Priceline "Make your own offer" feature. (Marriot picked up the deal on two occasions at about 90-100 Euro as a 4-star). VERY difficult to find if driving for the first time in Hamburg. Hotel is located in a small upscale shopping area across from a plaza complete with outdoor restaurants, take-away and, unfortunately, bums and panhandlers. Mini bar offered a free beer (at least on my first night). Wireless available for a (hefty) fee. On Hamburg itself, I found it expensive and complicated, though attractive. (I must admit I did not spend a great deal of time there). Even the famed red-light district, The Reeperbaum, was just sleezy and reminiscent of the old Times Square in New York (only not as classy ;<). NOTE TO RYAN AIR passengers. The RyanAir facility is at Lubeck Airport, not Hamburg. It's at least 45-60 minutes drive north - the last few miles through crowded village streets with much construction. Allow extra time.
Perfect hotel in a perfect city
As a flight attendant, I've had considerable experience with European hotels. My airline first started service to Hamburg in April, 1989 and the Hamburg Marriott, which had just opened, was our layover hotel. Although we stopped flying there in April, 1990, I have returned to Hamburg many times on my own and have never considered staying anywhere else. The hotel is in a quiet but central location, it's not big and bustling, the rooms are quiet, comfortable and beautifully appointed, the fitness club is good, and the staff are professional and friendly.
Even as I write this review, my thoughts of Hamburg well up in me and there's a flutter in my heart. It is a beautiful, stylish city where the people are extremely good-looking (must be the Danish influence), well-dressed, good-natured and urbane. The shopping is first-rate, the nightlife sophisticated, the restaurants superb. There is great wealth in Hamburg...and it shows. As far as the major cities of Germany are concerned, Hamburg is in a class by itself.
I cannot recommend a visit to this magnificent city enough, and a stay at the Hamburg Marriott would be the icing on the cake.
Very central location. The new beds are fantastic. Nice staff, lively bar and a great breakfast buffet. Can be highly recommended.
Just returned from a 3 night stay over New Year. The hotel was great - extremely clean and well looked after - all you would expect from a Marriott Hotel.
> We didn't eat there so I cannot comment on the restaurants but the hotel is central to all shopping and sightseeing areas and public transport and taxis were plentiful, even on New Year's Eve.
> Overall, we had a wonderful break spoilt only by our chosen budget airline, Ryanair, who failed to get us back home costing us an extra "small fortune" to get back to the UK.
Fine location, otherwise average
The hotel is located in the city centre, within walking distance of a wide range of fine shopping possibilities.
We stayed in a junior suite on the top floor (6th) located in a corner with a nice view of the city and with access to the executive lounge on the 5th floor.
The suite was about 35-40 square metres with a seperate sitting area and an average sized bathroom.
Although we were 3 people, the staff had not provided enough bathrobes or an extra bed in advance. A sliding door was broken and never completely fixed despite our request for repair.
The excecutive lounge offered a reasonable selection of sandwiches, snacks and drinks and was worth the extra. Breakfast is served here too if you want to cater for yourself; breakfast on the ground floor was excellent and the service prompt and accurate.
We had dinner one night in the restaurant but left dissapointed after waiting 90 minutes for 3 standard main courses to be served.
The spa, in our view, had friendly staff and offered treatments of average quality (based on 3 appointments).
Valet parking in the underground garage worked well.
All in all, not an unforgettable experience but a reasonably priced, average quality hotel in a fine location.
My wife and I and another couple stayed at the Hamburg Marriott for three nights. The hotel location could not be better. It is within easy walking distance to some of the best shopping in Europe and of course all the wonderful sights. The staff and hotel were tops. We stayed on the Executive floor and had a wonderful and very clean room. The Executive lounge was excellent. My wife and I stay in nice hotels all around Europe and the world and this Marriott fits right up there at the top. We will return.
Staff were very pleasant, room was very hot, and seemed impossible to cool it down, breakfast very good (although not as good as the side) evening meals barely edible.
When I came to check out they added 100 dollars to the bill for no real reason (or at least no other hotel has ever charged me for bleeding on their sheets).
If you are staying in Hamburg the Side hotel is very close to this location, and is fifty times better (If you like very modern hotels)
Strongly recommended if you get a reasonable rate
Great location amidst all important high streets, only two subway stations from Hamburg Central Station. Spacious, very, very clean rooms with soundproof windows, comfortable beds. Interior: Marriott worldwide standard furniture, so not a place for avantgarde design buffs. Sumptous breakfast buffet served by quick waiters. Staff is very nice.
Best hotel experience ever
It has been a few months since I stayed here but my experience was so wonderful that it is worth knowing about. My husband and I stayed here during a huge Harley event in July 2003. We felt so welcomed and important, staff was incredibly friendly (even for US standards!!), doors were held open for us at the entrance and the lift, rooms were meticulous tidy. I had lost an earring that rolled under the bed. When I looked beneath it I found a note dated and signed by the maid saying "We also clean here". The concierge was very helpful in finding us a rental car, even when we finally didn't make use his services. Breakfast is delicious and has everything you need and wish. Overall, the hotel is in perfect shape, has a very central but quiet location and has the best service ever.

... I thought I was ready to, at least look like a normal person riding a bike, but no, this time the seat that had just been changed was starting to go down because we hadn't tightened up the screw enough, which just didn't work.

Hamburg was pretty cool. We were there for only 3-ish days, and didn't do a whole lot other than walk around a bit.
Hamburg is a city that (like Berlin) embraces the artistic aspects of graffiti. It's everywhere. That being said, the city is quite beautiful, with some ...

We had lunch and checked out the fair before making our way back to the Düsseldorf airport to return our rental car and Jane. Jane made a mess of the ...
... teach the students about cultural differences and history. It would also be fun and it would be easy to get there as you can organise a bus to pick you up from your hotel. After the tour I caught a taxi back to the hotel and stopped by a local chafe for a bit of dinner as I was not very hungry after eating snack food all day.
