I have typically stayed at the Marriott in the ABC-Strasse when I have been in Hamburg, but this time I was working near the Chilehaus, so I wanted to stay a bit closer. The hotel is right in the center of Hamburg in the midst of several shopping streets and within a few minutes' walk of the Jungfernstieg and the Binnenalster.
Rooms are quite large by European standards and the decor is typical for a Renaissance (which is one of the more "quirky" Marriott brands, though all Marriott brands are quite consistently, and conservatively, decorated in my experience). The bed was quite comfortable and I slept as well as I ever sleep in a hotel. I stayed over a Friday and Saturday night, so the hotel was quite busy with tourists and the occasional group, though, except for one breakfast where the restaurant was full and I was sent to eat in the bar, the crowds were not really noticeable.
The breakfast buffet was very extensive, though had it not been included in my room rate, I would have gone to a nearby cafe instead. I ate dinner in the restaurant one night, and the food was tasty and not too expensive by the standards of European hotel restaurants.
The Internet worked well and the television system offers the typical range of international channels one would see in any large European chain hotel.
