Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went for drinks and nibbles as the weather was great and we love the view from rooftop. It was a gorgeous sunny day and the views were spectacular! The nibbles were lush, small peppers, olives, fries and bubbles 💕 The staff were so wonderful and attentive as always. We always feel at home and well taken care of here at Marriott. It’s definitely the place for drinks on a beautiful sunny day at the rooftop!

Very friendly and inviting atmosphere with great staff, food and nice modern accommodations. We had standard room that was big enough for two comfortably with fresh clean bathroom with walk in shower. Room was equipped with hair drawer, ironing board, iron and an assortment of hygiene products, shampoo, conditioners, body wash, bar soap and body lotion, all were of good quality. At every turn from the manager and other staff we were asked if everything was ok and did we need anything at all. Excellent breakfast buffet along with made to order eggs in any style you’d like. Lunch, dinner and drinks were all very good and at very reasonable cost.

We recently stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Oxford City Centre and it was a very good experience. Located close to the trading and bus stations, it is easy to access the attractions of Oxford as well as the nearby villages. Great location facing the old Oxford Prison and Castle. Close to shopping centre. Hotel is clean and bright. Our rooms were comfortable and the beds were made with fresh, crisp, clean linens. The Operations Manager, Louise Bird, was wonderful. She was friendly, attentive, and truly interested in making our stay memorable. She assisted us with getting Blenheim Palace tickets - leaving them in our room with chocolates. She followed up after our trip to ensure we had enjoyed our trip. She seems to work day and night as she was always available. She does a wonderful job and Marriott is lucky to have such a dedicated Operations Manager.

Exceptional location, wonderful staff, beautiful clean and quiet facility on a quiet street within walking distance to many shops and quality restaurants. Very close to colleges, museums, and historical attractions. Louise Bird the manager was very engaging, caring, and professional. Erin’s at the front desk and in the lounge was kind, gracious, and very affable.

We had a spacious and comfortable room on the 3rd FL with a fantastic view of an 11th century Norman tower overlooking a rushing brook. The staff was outstanding and the manager set a high bar for the staff to follow. All members in our tour were greeted with a welcome package with recommended services, local map, and room courtesies.

Great young staff that tried hard. Beautiful rooms with comfortable beds. Super location. Manager interacted regularly with guest. Soap, body cream, candy, cookies and complimentary drinks were a nice touch. Improvement suggestions. Used glasses not taken out of room for 2 days. Lunch for groups need to be coordinated with Viking. Dedicated bartender after 4pm.
