Travel Blogs from Heidelberg
New routine, wake-up call at 6am, bags out 7am, breakfast at 7:15, into coach by 7:45am, then set sail for Heidelberg Germany. We travel roughly south through fairly flat country, but green, lush.& colourful.
After a while we reach Germany & the flatness changes to gentle hills as we travel just inside the borders with Belgium …
... 600000 euro a year for up keep. The pipe organ is again fantastic and is relatively new, with a mirror placed so that you can see the organist. He was playing when we walked into the church, the acoustics were awesome. The music enveloped us as we walked around the church. Then down to the Rhine river for a stroll along the path before wandering back into town for a coffee. We then ...
... After our time on the lake we had to go back home and change for our concert. When we got to the Konzerthaus we had to set up the stage again. Tonight we had five different choirs singing with us. We had the Blue Lake Choir, three young German choirs and a choir from France! The stage was very packed and this caused many people to complain about not having enough space. Tonight was our Beethoven and Mozart concert. It went very well and the acoustics were the best that I had ever ...
Today we woke up and met out host mother Elisabeth and had an amazing breakfast of bread and apricots. We also had fresh picked cherries. We then went back to Landau and practiced for our concert at Jugendstil-Festhalle in Landau. We practiced for 4 hours and then left for the Chief Mayor's house in Landau. When we arrived there he greeted all of us and praised us for coming and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Heidelberg Hotel
Just another chained hotel
It was very close to the Train station. However, it was a bit of walking to the Altstadt. We have to take the bus to the Altstadt. It was a very seclusive hotel.
We stayed at this hotel as part of our tour of the Black Forest in August and as a regular vistor to "chain hotels" for work, I was pleasantly surprised.
I have stayed at this hotel on more than one occasion on business. There were a couple of issues on delayed check in this time around which did not do much for my overall opinion, but to be fair this was my first time with such an issue. The hotel is right on the river so many of the rooms have a lovely view. The Executive Lounge has a fantastic view from the balcony. The foods in the hotel is good and there is a lovely Indian restaurant right down the street. True it is a hike to city center if you want to be in the middle of everything but it is a nice walk and for the parking challenged the Marriott is a clear cut winner. Overall, the service is very attentive. The rooms are clean and comfortable but have nothing that screams out of the ordinary. They have removed the alarm clocks from the rooms so bring a travel alarm clock or be at the mercy of wake-up calls - can be a precarious situation if on business. Charming, is the word that best sums it up.
Very ordinary chain hotel. Nice location on the river, but a good 20 minute walk from the historic centre of the city. Rooms are adequate but dull and boring - mine had a balcony with a great view over the recycling area.
And one minor thing - charging guests a (refundable) deposit if they borrow one of the hotel's umbrellas is a really nice way for the hotel to show their guests that they think they're potential thieves. Symptomatic of a hotel that lacks any class.
Nice hotel, friendly staff
It's a very nice hotel but a bit secluded. It's a ten minute walk to the Altstadt, but considering the price and great service that's okay. Parking in the garage is expensive and unnecessary. You can easily park in the neighbourhood (honestly speaking: we never did).
Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great.
This is a first class hotel, great bar, nice restaurant, breakfast was great. Nice location. Nothing more can be said.
Good size room to US standard. We had a very nice view of the river from our room, which is a big plus. The breakfast is delicious, in the room facing the river and a lovely courtyard. The staff are nice and helpful. Will stay there again.
Warmest staff of those at all our hotels
Situated on the river, this hotel made us feel very welcome indeed. Housekeeping remade our beds with topsheets, and they delivered complimentary refreshments. The front dest helped us find our way to public transportation numerous times, let us use the computer, lent us umbrellas, and placed a call for us when we could not get our calling card to work.
All in all, they were terrific! The food was good, the massages were outstanding, and the price was so reasonable.
Just be aware that the hotel is not within walking distance to Bismark Platz. We tried to book a second stay a week later, and they were sold out. No wonder!
Good Marriott Hotel Lufthansa bus to FRA at door
Friendly and profesional staff..average size rooms
mine had balcony (small). very good breakfast buffet with many hot items but it was expensive..convenience store in gas station across the street. department stores and start of pedestrian shopping areas about a 10 minute walk.
Pay garage..park on street about a block away for free.
The Lufthansa Airlines Bus to Frankfurt Airport
departs from front of the hotel..about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minute ride..
We stayed here over New Years Eve. We had a king room with an extra bed and still had ample space. The hotel is on the Rivar Neckar and our room had a gorgeous river view. They had a huge buffet breakfast that was good. The staff was extremely friendly. The only drawback was having to pay to park in the hotel garage.
