... br> At the beginning of December we will cross (hopefully from Northern Thailand) into Laos. We'll have 30 days to explore as much as we can before crossing into Cambodia, for roughly the month of February. Then it's in to Vietnam.
We then plan to head south through Malaysia to Indonesia. Then....we'll let you know!
Checked into our Uber Modern B&B in the old walled city of York. The friendly owner has gone all out in redecorating our room in a Japanese theme and electronics and buttons galore (press button shower, smart 3D TV, silent fridge etc). The old city has a myriad of narrow winding streets and 14th century houses and, of course Minster Cathedral, a sprawling example of a 13th century ...

Our history shapes us. It crafts the building blocks of our culture, language and identity. To truly understand a place and its people, it is important to know its history. England's history, especially here in the North, is extremely rich and interesting. Today, along with my international travel team, I delved deeper into the history of this exciting city.

Historical Traveler Reviews Leeds Marriott Hotel
Superb & Central
An absolutely superb hotel - attention to detail in rooms, very efficient staff and in a tremendous location right in the city centre close to all the shops, bars and restaurants. Spacious rooms with impressive bathroom and nice touches such as tea/coffee facilities, trouser press, irons, shoe shine, needle & thread etc etc (the small things that are not that important but make that little bit of difference between a very good room and an excellent one) Would recommend without hesitation if you can get a good Internet rate.
Super Hotel - Ideal for weekend break
With so much chioce these days in Leeds for hotels we had a difficult decision on where to stay. In the end the Marriott were offering a very reasonable weekend rate so we opted for that one. It was well worth the research. The staff where very helpful. We didn't have enough towels in our room...one call and 3 minutes later they were there. When we stayed the hotel was very busy so they offered to breakfast in you room at no extra charge, which I thought was a nice touch.
When we did go down for brekkie the chioce was vast and catered for all morning appetites.
The only gripe we had was that the room was on the small size and the bed extremely uncomfortable. But if you like extra soft beds i'm sure you would be fine.
A last minute decision to shop in Leeds saw us book an executive room in the Marriott on the last Friday of April. After what seemed like an hour circling the one way system we found the hotel set in a peaceful courtyard just fifty yards from the shopping centre. Reception was businesslike and we were relieved find valet parking (£11 for 24hrs). Our 5th floor room was large very clean and well appointed and with our choice of bed (king) - quite up to exec standard. After an afternoon in the shops, a short walk back to the hotel and a quick change saw us in the small but well equipped gym followed by a very relaxing hour in the steam room and pool. The main bar of the hotel was also clearly popular with the public and had welcoming staff and a lively atmosphere. Supper in the restaurant (Johnny T's) was exceptionally good - excellent service and top quality food at not unreasonable prices. Two niggles - despite paying £125 for the exec room and facilities, the exec lounge was not staffed thus without any of the usual exec bar or refreshment facilities; when I enquired at reception I was told that they were short of staff and it was usually closed weekend evenings; secondly, after using express checkout, I still await a copy bill, so I am unable to check any charges or relate accurate prices. Two relatively important issues when judging the hotels facilities. That said we had a delightful short stay and deliberatly chose not to take issue with management, in order not to colour the experience. We will return.
Just returned from a weekend break to Leeds marriott, not our 1st choice of location, but the York Marriott was fully booked. Leeds City Centre does lack charm but was a good base to visit Harrogate, skipton and the Dales. We had great difficulty finding the hotel as it is hidden away in a lovely little courtyard in fact we had to stop twice on the dreaded one way Loop system to ask for directions. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast delicious with a good selection. We did not have Dinner at the hotel instead chose to eat Italian at Bibis on Swinegate and also the Thai Restaurant Chao Phrana which is located opposite, both were excellent and I would recommend them highly,very good value, they are near the exit of the NCP Car-park. We did have a couple of nigggles, we were charged three times for two items from the mini bar, this was corrected when we pointed it out to Reception, also watch out for the jelly- beans which say MARRIOTT HOTEL WITH COMPLIMENTS they will charge you £2.50 if you eat them!
We have just returned from staying at the Marriott hotel and it was a fab stay! We booked for one night only, taking full advantage of the Friday night for £50.00.
It's in a fantastic location, the staff were exceptionally helpful, the room was very clean, and the concierge was really helpful - He recommended an excellent Thai restaurant called the Thai Edge at Millennium Square.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
Excellent central hotel
Me and my boyfriend stayed here on a Friday night for £50, a complete bargain!
The hotel is very central, only a couple of minutes from all the cool bars and nightclubs.
The room was very clean, comfy bed, well equiped and modern.
Check out time is 12. Breakfast is extra, but we were still asleep for that!
I recommend this hotel highly, especially the £50 Friday night if you want a night on the town!
I stayed at the Marriott for one night on November 19, 2004. I booked through the Marriott website and got the Friday night special rate of £50 for a single room. This was by far the nicest hotel I've stayed at in the UK, for quality, service, and value for money.
We have just got back from staying one night at the Leeds Marriott. We really enjoyed our stay in this very posh hotel. The room and ensuite were very clean. The bed was very comfortable. We stayed on the top floor of the hotel and we had great views of the city. Excellent service from the staff. We were very close to shops and just a short walk to a selection of very good restaurants and bars. We had breakfast ordered to our room it was a real treat as it was a gorgeous breakfast, very very tasty. Enjoyed every minute and would definately return to the Marriott!
