Munich Marriott Hotel
Travel Blogs from Munich
After seeing the amazing Alps and the fabulous skiing, we decided we had to hit the slopes. Unfortunately, we had to be back in Munich tonight (Sunday) for our flight to IAD on Monday morning. We actually considered pushing our flight back a day, but that got very complicated and expensive. However, we had all day so why not …
Munich and Salzburg. We have travelled to Munich and Salzberg (Austria) the last two days.
In a world where consumerism, capitalism and the necessity of fitting in into society, are the most present values in everyday life, some people found a escape for that prison.
A lot of people don´t understand why do I travel so much. And in the beginning I didn´t too. But my travels helped me understanding myself better and the world around me.

... low in Bavaria because the school structure makes for good school to work transition. He particularly pointed out the difference between Bavaria and some of the other states. In Bavaria, many who have jobs in mechanical disciplines attended the hauptschule. In other states, very few attended hauptschule. His point was that the Bavarian school system is better than schools in other states. Comparative tests show that Bavarian hauptschule ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Munich Marriott Hotel
Ideal for city break. Perfect location
Good location, friendly staff and good food. We stayed for 4 nights and found the hotel to be exactly what we were looking for in terms of location, service and value.
In the event that we would visit Munich in the future we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Good for a business hotel
My husband spent a week at a conference at this hotel, then I joined him at the end of his trip.The hotel itself is an average Marriott,OK rooms, nice bar in the lobby, American sports bar (ugh). Husband spoke highly of the staff and their attention to detail for the conference, of which he was an organizer, so this meant a lot to him. He said the food had been good all week, especially the breakfasts. Location is in the suburbs in an office park and not where you would stay if you wanted to see Munich.There was a convenience store and a pharmacy in the office park and another hotel that had a pretty good restaurant.It is pretty convenient to the airport.
No surprises...exactly what you'd expect...
I'm not a huge fan of Marriott Hotels, because of their cookie cutter sameness....but perhaps after staying in Eastern Europe for a week, the Munich Marriott offered a welcome respite from too much "charm." I found this Marriott to be just a cut above the one's I have stayed at in the US. The rooms were nice and very clean, though the bathroom was a bit plain. The staff was helpful, and is very accustomed to speaking English (even if you speak German). The location isn't near any of the sites, but the hotel is very close to a metro station for easy access to all that Munich has to offer. I also liked the fact that we were very near a supermarket and chain bakery store, which allowed us to easily avoid the Marriott's overpriced drinks, etc. We got a great deal on the room, so value for the money, I was very satisfied. Sometimes no surprises is the best surprise.
Mums the word for Marriott Munich
My choice of hotels in Europe is always Marriott which have been very impressive, but the Marriott Munich was very dissappointing. The hotel is your average 3 star hotel such as a Holiday Inn but very expensive. The actual city center of Munich for tourism is no where near this hotel, you must take the subway or a cab. The hotel staff was kind and the breakfast was good. The Champions Restaruant (American style food) in the lobby was very understaffed when I was there and the food was really not very good at all and very expensive. The only reason I would recommend staying at this hotel is if you had business at the Munich Olympic Stadium or you wanted to be able to jump on Autobahn 9 very quickly to leave Munich to the North. If you are coming to Munich for tourism look for another hotel in the city center, the prices are going to be the same anyway. The gym and pool for this hotel are not usual Marriott standard either. Cheers.
Stayed here in March for 1 night on a work trip. The hotel is located on the north side of Munich, convenient to the Airport but remote from much else. It is however less than 5 minutes walk to an U-Bahn station, from which it is only a 7-8 minute ride to the centre.
The hotel dates from about 1989; it was probably advanced for its time but 16 years on it feels very average. The rooms, leisure centre and public areas are fine but nothing special. There is a restaurant but on a Wednesday night the staff said it was full. The bar, which also serves food, is a tacky American themed sports bar with TVs in every corner. We dined elsewhere.
Great value for money
The location of the hotel in Schwabing, which is a calm and rather upscale residential area, is ideal if travelling by car as it is situated at the "Mittlerer Ring", the connecting highway to all "Autobahns". Try to get a public roadside parking space in front of the hotel ore in the nearby roads, which sometimes is not easy as public parking is very scarce, but try to avoid the very expensive hotel parking garage. Next to the hotel there is a supermarket and some smaller shops - by the way in the same building than the "Renaissance" Hotel - which can provide you with all the necessities one has during a stay, especially for buying drinks as the ones in the room are way much to expensive.
There is no need for Taxis as the connection to the historic centre of Munich and shopping area by tube ("U-Bahn" line S-6) is very convenient and safe, even late at night. In a few minutes after 6 stops you will find yourselves in the very heart of Munich at "Marienplatz". Buy your ticket at the reception desk at the hotel.
One of the really great things about Munich Marriott is their breakfast buffet. We use to travel a lot around the globe but we rarely have seen something similar and it is probably the worlds best breakfast we have ever eaten. The variety and quality of the food are unbeatable. You even will find Bavarian "Weisswürstel" with "Bretzel" apart from the huge choice of hot meals, cold cuts, fruits and cheeses, bread varieties etc. Being that excellent the Restaurant is always very crowded in the morning and coffee service sometimes might not be that quick as one could expect. We also love the Sports-Bar which offers very nice food (at great prices) and a great variety of drinks, also at reasonable prices. We prefer the casual atmosphere of a sports-bar to the rather stiff atmosphere of many other hotel-bars.
The rooms are the usual (good) Marriott Standard, very well kept and clean. The bathrooms however are rather basic and lack totally of atmosphere, they remind me to "Motel 6" and definitely are above Marriott Standard and need a little renovation. Still, they are very clean with plenty of towels. If you prefer to sleep with the A/C shut-off and with open windows ask for a room not facing the highways as these tend to be very loud with open windows. Also try under all circumstances to get a special weekend-rate with breakfast included. last time we paid EUR 109 per night for the two of us including the breakfast which would cost another EUR 18 p.P. if not included. Compared to the Sheratons which also are not centrally located and the "Vier Jahreszeiten" and "Bayrischer Hof" (we have tried them all) which of course are centrally located and have more atmosphere but never have these competitive rates at week-ends we cannot think of a better value for money Hotel in Munich than the Marriott.
Overpriced & Inconvenient
This hotel was typical of the Marriott chain, comfortable but higher priced than other comparable international chain hotels. Also, the area between the subway station and the hotel seemed to be home to a lot of "guest workers" and I did not feel comfortable on the street at night.
It was ok!
Stayed for two nights in march 2004. We got a room overlooking the highway, but it was quiet. The location is good, close to a subway. It takes about 10-15 minutes to the city center. The room was nice, very clean. Breakfast buffett is expensive (?18), but very good. The concierge told us some nice spots to eat and party. Would return
Very Good hotel close to the subway
Hotel is not within walking distance of any sites worth visiting. However, it is located in a very safe, residential area about 5 minutes (walk) away from the next subway station (direct line to the Marienplatz, city hall, etc.). A supermarket is on your way to the subway. Very Good weekend rates, fresh hotel with a very nice lobby and helpful staff. Guest rooms were modernized and are offering all your Marriott standards including a handsome American buffet breakfast and a Champions sports bar. Nice, well-equipped health club. Across the Marriott - even closer to the subway - there is the Renaissance hotel. I would go for the better rate at either hotel, because both hotels are playing in the same league(the Renaissance has nice courtyard rooms with balconies as a plus, however it is lacking an indoor pool).
