The Marriott Copenhagen isn't the best hotel in the city with its bland interiors and average location , but for fans of the brand, the Marriott is suitable. Clean and conventional to its image, the advantage of the hotel is its large rooms and its lovely views over the nearby canal. Otherwise, the hotel is similar to others under the same umbrella - an impersonal atmosphere and a hectic lobby buzzing with elderly Italian and Spanish cruise tourists isn't the most appealing of atmospheres if you're looking for a bit of that sleek Copenhagen chic!
Located at the canal's edge, the hotel is in a bit of a modern-day no-man's land surrounded by newly built hotels, including the Tivoli and Wakeup. A swift 10 minute walk from the centre of town, where you'll find Tivoli Gardens and Central Station, there isn't anything much to do in the hotel's immediate surroundings. On the other side of the canal is a relaxed area called Islands Brygge - in the summer the harbour is turned into a lido area and during the Copenhagen Jazz Festival (usually the first 10 days of July), lots of free concerts take place here.
There is complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel. The hotel has designated parking onsite, which costs about the same as in town (25Kroner per hour and 250 Kroner for the day). Remember that parking is free all over the city at weekends.
The Marriott Copenhagen has nothing of the Danish design you might expect of a hotel in the city, which is a shame; instead, the Marriott, despite being comfortable, looks like pretty much any other Marriott. The hotel lobby is usually busy with transiting cruise passenger waiting to check-in or check-out. Decorated in neutral colours, beige and off-white, the entrance hall is bland and sterile. A staircase shoots off up to the rooms to the right. Opposite the stairs is the open-plan lobby bar with a few booths and tables and chairs. The bar serves snacks and beverages throughout the day. The actual reception desk is to the left of the entrance and there is a small souvenir shop to the right. The main restaurant is also on the ground floor and its entrance is just past the stairs. The floor to ceiling windows in the lobby give the area a shopping mall atmosphere, but at the same time lets in plenty of light. The large hotel is exactly what one would expect of a Marriott hotel - the atmosphere is an impersonal transitory one. Otherwise in terms of facilities there is a gym.
The 401 spacious rooms are divided up into six categories, the main difference between the rooms being the view and executive lounge access. The advantages of the rooms are in their size and view. Standard rooms start at 36m², which is a lot bigger than the average 22m² in the centre of the city. The comfortable rooms have down comforters and cotton linens, as well as thick carpets, making a cosy stay on a cold winter's day. The rooms come with the usual mod-cons including a safe, hair dryer, flat-screen television, mini-bar, and Wi-Fi internet. There isn't much to say about the decor of the rooms, but that they will be undergoing a complete renovation in the year to come. We look forward to seeing the new rooms. The bathrooms are otherwise well-appointed and clean. The corridors can be fairly long, so if you suffer from restricted movement or you have young children, enquire about getting a room closer to reception upon booking. The hotel has connecting rooms too, but cannot guarantee them at the time of booking.
The hotel has one restaurant, which feels a lot like a diner. The high point of eating here is the view over the canal through the large bay window that lines the entire room. The room itself is as bland and functional as the rest of the hotel. Neutral colours and light pine furniture are the only features to mention. All three meals are served here. The restaurant offers a buffet in the mornings and an à la carte menu for lunch and dinner. The menu tends to range from Italian to French and Danish food, although it specialises in grilled meats and seafood; hence its name: 'Midtown Grill Steakhouse'. The restaurant food is average, but with so many restaurants to try in town, your best bet is venturing out. The restaurant can also accommodate private dinners in a room next door and in a closed off dining room to the back of the restaurant.There is room service and operates on par with the restaurant's kitchen opening times (Monday-Friday: 6:30am-11:00am; 12:00pm-3:00pm; 6:00pm-10:30pm. Saturday and Sunday: 7:00am- 11:00am; 12:00pm-3:00pm; 6:00pm-10:30pm). The lobby bar serves quick snacks and beverages throughout the day.
