I stayed here with my brother and niece in a room with two queen beds. I paid an extra $40 per night for a river view room because the other room I was given had a view of a building and was rather depressing and made me feel claustrophobic. The main problem for me was that I stayed at the JW Marriot in Quito, Ecuador and had higher expectations from the Brisbane Marriot. I had no idea of the vast difference in everything between the JW Marriots and the standard Marriots. The first disappointment was the entrance which was small and very dingy with a wet floor sign out front for the whole weekend even though it wasn't raining. I was almost embarressed that I chose this hotel as I had told my brother how great the Marriot hotels are. This wasn't one of them. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful but it had a very stuffy and unwelcoming feel about it which I didn't experience at the very opulent JW Marriot. The beds were comfortable enough and the bathroom was nice, cleanliness seemed fine though I didn't pay too much attention to the room overall as I had better things to do. Room service staff were nice but there seemed to be some lack of communication between the 'at your service' staff and the staff actually delivering the order. I had to ask for the tie for a robe three times before it was delivered. The pool was far too cold for the time of year and they should invest in a better heating system. I heard other people comment on this also. It is about a 10 minute walk to the main shopping area which is ok unless you just want to duck out for a takeaway coffee in the morning since it costs around $10 to get one through room service. I left my phone in the lounge area which was spotted and returned to me by one of the managers which was greatly appreciated. Parking is far too expensive but this is typical of this type of hotel chain. Overall this hotel is ok but could do much better. I recommend improving the entrance, complimentary drop-off to city centre and heat up the "heated pool", introduce free parking offers.
