Just came back from an 8 night stay at the Beirut Marriott and I don't have enough words to describe how good this hotel is and how vibrant this beautiful city is.The lobby is opulent with chrome mirrors,scented candles,classy flower arrangements, an oak lobby bar and wonderful young friendly receptionists who are experts in professional and prompt service.
I was given a room on the 1st floor which had 2 comfortable queen beds. The room was extremely spacious with a sitting area and nice desk (and this is only a standard room!)and 3 phones .The bathroom was huge divided into 2 parts, one for the tub and commode and another for the sinks and vanity mirror.The room also had a partial view of the Mediterranean with its magnificent dark blue water.The hotel's location is perfect being in a quiet upscale residential area halfway between downtown and the airport (a cab ride to the shopping and nightlife area costs a mere $3 US).
The breakfast buffet was lavish with a chef to take your orders.I would like to especially mention the very accommodating young lady called Joelle who worked at the Palms restaurant.Thank you Joelle for such great service.
I also had fun at Champions bar where I had an excellent chicken burger.
The only slight drawback to the stay was the older TV set which needed an upgrade with the remote control being not so reliable.
Other than that an excellent stay and I recommend this wonderful hotel to all visitors to this beautiful city.
