The other review of this hotel are fairly accurate. I didn't get his name, but the gentleman on reception was excellent. He delivered the kind of service that most hoteliers have forgotten about.
Our room was an executive one. Superking bed, flatscreen TV, decorated in a very traditional way. We were almost at the front of the hotel and in all honesty the noise was tremendous. If I were to review the town of Cardiff then I would say it was fantastic but avoid like the plague on a Saturday night. What was otherwise a laid back happy city, suddenly became an aggressive dirty city. The toilets in bars and restaurants were filthy, every bar seemed to have a pay at the door policy. And Saturday night at the Marriot was a noisy affair. But I always sleep with ear plugs so no worries for me. The slamming of the doors when housekeeping were at work was difficult though.
Housekeeping- I am an avid reader in the bath, on the first day I realised that my book was missing from the bathroom. I found it by the bed- with a bookmark. That's quality service. They really were very good.
To surmise, the atmosphere in this hotel was welcoming and traditional. The service was high quality, there is room for improvememt. A few tiny niggles:-
1. Only one pack of biscuits left in the room, should be one each.
2. Clean but the plastic plant was very very dusty
3.Nice room but the bathroom was cheapy. The plumbing beneath the sink could've been boxed in, cheap shower attachment, small bath (although not too shallow like some hotels)
4. Too darn hot!
5. Noisy (but what do you expect with such an excellent location)
I LOVED IT!
