For business travel, I have found that true Marriott Hotels are always reliable, clean, and high quality compared to most of the other chains. This hotel meets all of the high Marriot standards, yet has a lower price compared to other hotels in downtown Munich.
The hotel is located in the charming old village of Freising, and there are some nearby sightseeing opportunities. The staff is excellent and helpful. Also, there is a convenience store in the lobby, which is nice because I hate having to search around for a nearby place to buy snacks & drinks when I am working on reports in my room.
My only complaint is that this hotel doesn't really have easy travel access to the airport. Yes, the hotel is only 6 miles from the airport, but those are a hard 6-miles through local roads. If you plan to travel by Taxi, expect to pay about 25-Euro and spend 20+ minutes (depending on traffic). If you use a rental car, leave 30 minutes early to account for traffic, wrong turns, looking for a gas station, getting lost, etc. GPS is recommended.
My one complaint is that you have to call for for the Marriott shuttle bus after you arrive at the Hotel bus stop... and my cell phone wasn't working. I waited for 1 hour for the shuttle to come before I realized that I had to call. Next, I went to the taxi stand to get a ride. It was ~6pm, still in rush hour. The first taxi driver declined to take me to the hotel (this created a big incident with the other cab drivers). After everything calmed down, the 2nd driver agreed to do it, but he made a cell phone during the trip and was complaining about it because of the traffic.
Bottom line is that this is a great hotel, but I don't think it has easy access to the airport.
