Munich and Salzburg. We have travelled to Munich and Salzberg (Austria) the last two days.
After wonderful Christmas celebrations in Pella, the whole family (Vince, Monica, Brett, C.J., and Kyle) headed to Munich, Germany, on Thursday, December 27, arriving on the 28th. Our first day was spent familiarizing ourselves with downtown Munich, sampling traditional Bavarian cuisine at Weisses Brauhaus in the Marienplatz area, and enjoying the …
Tom and Jenn here from Munich... aka Tom gets to to type now. Next to beer and liderhosen, Ambien might be the next sighn that God loves us and wants us to be happy. After two night of getting up at 2am, we've had to knock down the wonder drug. We woke up this morning still reminicesing about last night and how we finagled our way into an Invite …
After a long, yet mostly easy journey from LA we have finally arrived in Munich, Germany. By easy I mean a 10 hour flight in which we both had middle seats (but after some red wine we were able to sleep most of the way). Tom also got to sit next to a lady who I am sure was a witch, in addition she wore an arm sling which she clearly did not need or …
So you know when you watch those movies of old cultured men smashing their glasses together, grunting some foreign chant? Yea, this is Oktoberfest. There are obviously less cultured men, and more tourists, and more American chants than German ones, but hey, close enough.
I was lucky enough to be invited by Lia to go to Oktoberfest and …

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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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).
