Convenient hotel with quick access to all downtown locations and sights. Generally good for business travel with OK WiFi. Only complaint is the absence of electrical outlets (there was ONE for anyone not prepared to move tables and nightstands, definitely substandard for a business hotel these days.
Great place to be loved the experience would go again and recommend for anyone that loves to play and travy
The location is just along Brisbane River near Story Bridge and the pier with lots of bar/restaurant options. The Story Bridge to Kangaroo Point and back through the next pedestrian bridge offers nice walking and running opportunities. Standard Marriott amenities.
The hotel staff did not add a second night when contacted. As a result, we were required to find sub par accommodations and missed a planned celebration close to the hotel. The reservation staff realized their error, and offered us a room after we departed Australia.
The Marriott in Brisbane has much to recommend it. The staff tried very hard to be accommodating and mostly succeeded. The room was stylish and mostly comfortable. The hotel is located one short block from the Riverwalk and its many restaurants as well as the CityCat catamaran that provides public transportation to many places in central Brisbane. The room was dark at night, a feature I like, with minimum light coming in from the edges of the draperies. The shower was great and the bathroom amenities were good. U.S. visitors new to Australia might want to note that, pretty consistently, the star rating for Australian hotels is one step up from how the same hotel would be rated in the U.S. So, this five-star Aussie hotel would likely be considered four-star in the U.S. That's not bad -- just a realistic assessment. The few concerns I had about the Marriott Brisbane would not prevent me from staying there again. However, here they are: The bedroom has a shortage of electrical outlets available. (I keep an extension cord in my suitcase, so that was not a problem for me.) The pillows are really wimpy; even after I requested some "firm" pillows, I had to pile up three of them in order to have enough support under my head. The room was serviced pretty well every day, although I twice had to request additional toilet paper and once had to ask for another bar of soap. In addition, and this may point out one of my pecadillos more than anything else, I noted that EVERY item I had out in the bathroom or on the desk was moved every day by every cleaning person. I don't leave anything of value out, but I do settle into a hotel room, and it struck me as a bit annoying and invasive that my things were rearranged on a daily basis. Nothing was damaged or moved significantly, but everything was moved slightly. Room service is quick and the items I ordered were good. However, the room service menu is somewhat limited; after a week at the hotel, I was tired of my choices. One final comment: At check-in, there was quite an aggressive attempt to up-sell me. I was in a standard room with a city view and was offered a room with a river view for $45 more per day or a room with breakfast and unlimited drinks for a "deal" at $95/day (that's a LOT of drinks). I want to feel like I have made a good choice when I check into a hotel, not like I need to spend a lot more to get a good room. Also, these rates seem high. I will stay at this hotel again when I am in Brisbane. It is not perfect but is much better than any other hotel I have stayed in as a business traveler to Australia.
Impeccable service every time I've stayed at a Marriot, world wide. We were staying at the Brisbane Marriot for a wedding during the flood and had to be relocated to the Gold Coast; a fellow Canadian at the front desk helped us with our transport/accommodations and even looked up cheaper (alternate) hotel options on the coast for us! In the end we stayed at the Surfers Paradise Marriott despite the sharp increase in cost - simply an incredible resort, worth the cost.
Good four star hotel, well located right on the river walk. Nice rooms, friendly helpful staff and just a couple of blocks away from good shopping, restaurants, etc.
First time at this hotel. It was very nice but a little pricey. The valet parking cost almost as much as the car rental.
The staff were great! Lots of help w/sightseeing visits. The $50/night parking fee was an unpleasant surprise, but I'd still stay there again.
