Islamabad Marriott Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Infamous for 2008 bombing the hotel is still good but has very high security. High walls, bomb sniffing dogs, three seperate metal detector controls until entering the lobby. Has 5 different restaurants and fresh juice bars. No alcohol off course, a bit pricey but good spacious rooms.lower floors may be abit noisy lopk for 4th or 5 th floor rooms. Breakfast is good, I tried steak house also, meets expectatons of western meat lover.

The hotel is favourite place due to its location. politicians, diplomats, businessmen visit this place usually. Owing to the perfect location of the hotel, it hardly takes half an hour to commute between the Hotel, the Benazir Intenational Airport Islamabad and other places of interests.

Anywhere else this would be considered an average Marriott, but here it’s one of the nicer hotels. I say this despite their racist policies of preferential treatment toward white foreigners. I am a US citizen but was not allowed to go to the bar. The staff is very nice and the breakfast is amazing.

I have stayed at this hotel several times, its right in the hub of the city with excellent security. Rooms are great and check in staff are very pleasant and helpful. I would certainly recommend staying here. However, I would suggest that you explore restaurants outside the hotel. Nadia is good for buffet-style meals but very limited for vegetarians. The Japanese and Thai restaurants are beautiful with not exceptional quality food but the prices are very high even by London standards.

I had party of four pals at Nadia and it went excellent. Food and services are excellent. Layout of food and menu was matchless. Its far above to money paid. Live music added thrill in party. My foreigners friend enjoyed local hospitality and appreciated services. They love to see old antique car in lobby. Well done Marriot Team. Maj Hyder Malik

I recently conducted a workshop in Islamabad and the workshop venue was the Marriott. Naturally, my organization secured an institutional rate for the accommodation booking, which also complements our long-standing relationship with Marriott. Unfortunately, although the office made a booking, discussed it by email and secured it by phone - the hotel refused to honour the institutional rate because the booking was made on their online system instead of through their representative. To make matters worse, on my arrival they had cancelled by booking and refused to offer the institutional rate - despite me being there, in person, with the organization ID, without a booking and with the workshop to manage within a few short hours. VERY Disappointing management which resulted in all guests paying up to 40% additional fees. Ridiculous. Made us all feel like suckers rather than guests. Bad form Marriott.

Spent two nights here for thin first time. The check in process was very quick and we got a very nice room with a view of the Margalla Hills. The room was very spacious was a plate of fresh fruit and completely minibar drinks. The room was pretty sound proof, only heard some very faint noises once. Breakfast is huge with loads of choices to choose from. All very fresh and nicely done. I had a peek at the ladies gym and swimming pool which looked really nice- they also had a big jacuzzi as well. I only ever tried the Blue Elephant Thai restaurant which was very good indeed. We had a very pleasant stay, all the stuff were very pleasant and very accommodating. I would definitely choose to go there again.

Thanks to Asif, Sbanoqsa, Aqsa, Imrana, Sarfaz, Hina, Imran, Sabeen, guys of the VIP lounge and all the staff !!. Your work, service, happines, knwoledge, skills and kindness are amazing! The staff makes you feel at home! Congratulations and see you soon!

The Marriott Islamabad has one of the best service I have experienced at a hotel. Every person with whom I interacted was attentive and pleasant. The hotel service has continued to improve. The service is just excellent .Complimentary breakfast is world class .The property is amazing, rooms are great. Their security is top class. The location is great as it is close to nearly all government offices. The hotel provides complimentary transport service from airport in private car. Wifi is free. The hotel has good choice of restaurants ;Nadia :-where Pakistani cuisine is mostly served (both buffet and ala carte); Zigolini :-Italian. They also have Chinese, Japanese and Steak House which I did not try on this short visit.

Marriott is excellent for staying as well as business meetings and events. Once here, the area is safe and guests do not need to go out if staying here for work. I stayed here for two nights with meetings in the conference rooms below, and never had to leave the hotel.
