Just returned from 8 day stay at the Marriott. Booked 1 bedroom apartment & were on the 10th floor. Hotel is in a lovely area. Lots of eating areas along the quay & shopping mall with grocery stores short walk away. Hotel is modern, clean & very large well stocked apartments. Had breakfast & couple of dinners in our apartment. Kitchen well stocked except for dish detergent, dish cloths or dish towels. There is a dishwasher but no detergent for it either. We bought some dish detergent & paper towels along with our groceries.
Hotel is very modern & clean. It is less than a minute walk from DLR. Hotel provided us with map of area & London map which included tube system. You can get anywhere from the hotel by using the DLR & tube system. Excellent way to get around. London has incredible transit system. As a non-resident get a transit pass before you go to London & you are set to get around without any issues.
Staff are very friendly. Had a smile & hello from everyone on duty every time you walked through the lobby. Maids would ask when it would be convenient to clean your room. They went by your schedule.
Hotel made arrangements for a car to take us to the airport when we were leaving. Ended up with a Mercedes van for just the two of us so it was a lovely transfer. Driver was very friendly & informative when we asked questions.
Apartment is very clean & modern. No noise issues at all. Can't even hear any noise from the halls. Furniture is very comfortable & in excellent condition. No stains on anything. Loved the wall to wall windows so living room & bedroom is bright & airy. We faced the DLR so could hear a muffled noise from it but nothing significant. Hotel ventilation systems were below us but if you look beyond that & the DLR you looked out over the city. We were able to see a new ride attraction that is being built at the Olympic village.
Bathroom is large, clean & modern. Has separate shower stall but it seemed small so used the shower in the bathtub instead. Nice to have the option to use either.
Availability of maid service is dependent on how long you are staying. You can request their service more often but you will be charged extra. It is all disclosed in your welcome letter so there are no surprises.
Overall this is an excellent hotel. When I was researching where to stay I kept seeing the same thing that most London hotels are very small & even the apartment style hotels are outdated & rundown. That is not the case with the Marriott. We had plenty of room in a modern stylish apartment. I couldn't find anything to complain about. We got an excellent deal through Expedia so hopefully in future we could get a similar deal because I think it can be pricey for the average person if there is not a deal available. I will definitely return when we return to London.
