“Great Vacation in a Great Hotel”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Having traveled to Dubai a ton of times before and having stayed at a variety of hotels, It surely was difficult for any hotel to "pleasently" surprise us!! But I was wrong!! the Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites is one of the best properties that I have ever stayed in! Lets take the inventory of pros and cons point wise.

Pros
- Located in a premium and tourist friendly Dubai Marina, where a lot of attractions were nearby.

- Excellent staff, always smiling, always helpful, and doesn't know how to say "NO" to the guests :) would like to mention Ms. Amandeep at the front desk, and Mr. Aymen at the concierge to have contributed greatly towards the enhancement of our Marriott experience! thank you ppl!!

- Great rooms(we were in a 2 room apartment!), spacious, clean, new, well cleaned and kept, well furnished etc...we stayed in a 2 bed Ocean view apartment on 35th Floor.....the view doesn't get awesomer than that :) we could see (On a clearer Dubai day) the palm island, the Atlantis Hotel (albeit at a far distance), the Sky diving club (morning sky diving happening on a few days) and a great oceanic view!!

- Great Service, Great food.....! room service was aewsome...we tried it, and loved it

- Ample Taxis available outside the hotel (At All the time!!)....this was really helpful to us.

- An overall great experience of a great vacation !!

Cons:

- Very few.....the heavy load of construction work going around the hotel roads owing to the construction of the Dubai Tram service...due to which the roads leading to and fro the hotel were a little congested, and at times tricky...but it was all ok, as someone else was driving the vehicle all the time :)

- I'm not sure about the Mattress in my room....it could have been better!

- Breakfast was very nice, but I somehow think that number of dishes offered was a little less than the number of dishes offered at the contemporary competing good hotels in Dubai.....but the service was very good, and that alone made that worth our while :)

- No con is big enough to stop us from coming back to this hotel, next time when we are in Dubai :)

Thank you Marriott.....It was Great!

Room Tip: Always try to get the oceanic view rooms, that have better views than their City view rooms

Wow! I've stayed in many hotels but the Marriott Harbour took me by surprise. We had gone with one of their offers (the romance package) which provided a free dinner of our choice served in privacy of our living room and also allowed for late check out - which was the main reason as we had a 2 AM flight the next morning.
Upon arrival we got upgraded from a 1 bedroom apartment to a 2 bedroom suite. Living room was massive with formal dining and seating area and there was a full blown spacious kitchen to go with it. Counted 3.5 bathrooms! And yes, we got a nice view over beach and The Palm, with 2 balconies.
So...once the wow factor settled in it came down to the service. Staff were so friendly (especially the 52 floor restaurant folks) addressing me by surname and taking notice of details.
Romantic in-room dinner was served by two of the staff and was really good! Drinks and full bottle of wine included.
Location is great, just by the Marina so you can get out and enjoy the area by foot.
Although we only stayed 3 nights, I can say that it was memorable visit.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who plans on staying in Dubai for an extended period (business trip) or for families passing through looking for an affordable option where everyone can stay in the same place. The full kitchen will serve you well when you don't want to eat out every night.

We have been using this hotel (serviced apartment suites) since 2007 for short stays (2-3 times a year) and this is THE best serviced apartment in Dubai Marina and I would say Dubai overall.

Other hotel apartments are an exceptional value for money. The views of Dubai Marina, The Palm and the Arabian Gulf are fantastic especially if you are on higher floors (20th-50th floor). The apartments are spacious and huge and the bathrooms are excellent. The kitchen is very spacious and fully equipped. The 2 BR and higher have additional rooms (maid's room).

The hotel staff are extremely professional, prompt and very friendly and will always welcome whole-heartedly, everytime we return to the hotel. And what is the best of it all is that as I am a loyal returning customers since the past 7 years now, I always get upgraded to an apartment one-level better than the one I booked.

The surrounding areas have the Marina Walk (200 m away) and the beach and the Walk at JBR which is less than a km away where there are a string of restaurants and supermarkets to cater to your needs.

Overall THE best hotel in Dubai Marina and great value for money.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the south have construction noise due to the new upcoming buildings.

I have had the chance to stay at many marriott properties in the last few years and most every time I provide feedback about how nice the staff are. I can truly say that the staff at this hotel are amazing. Take that along with the location and view, the hotel is great. It currently has its challenges with traffic and location but so does all of Dubai.
Everyone talks about the Observatory, save the money when you do the Burj and spend it here. Amazing views at sunset.
Rooms were very nice with plenty of room.
To finish, I just want to thank the front desk staff, front desk manager and the hotel general manager for taking the time to talk to me and see my family off after our stay. It truly made the difference for me and why I recommend this hotel. Plenty of great hotels in Dubai - no doubt but you take the staff, plus the view, plus the costs and you have just a limited number of places that match.

Room Tip: Get a floor high up. Might take you a bit longer waiting on an elevator but the view is great.

The Observatory restaurant at the 54th floor is absolutely amazing. Having visited the marina, we wanted to see the marina from a hight, so decided to have a look at the marriott if they had a skybar or something likewhise, and immediately we made reservations for dinner for the same night there.

600 dirhams for cocktails as starters, an amazing view, decent wines and main courses, followed with coffee and cognac.

Only thing was that we asked for one table specifically, but it was occupied when we got there. However, the great servers arranged another table for us, and as soon as a table with the same view was free, we were moved there..

As two St. Regis hotel employees, we know what good service and value for money is, and this definetely exceeded our expectations. Special thanks to The Observatory team!

I stayed here on business for three nights. The service is very good indeed as one would expect and the rooms as luxurious. One surprise is that the build quality is good too, no niggleing little things wrong. The aircon worked perfectly, which was a blessing for me but in the evening my ground floor room was perfect with the doors open and the breeze wafting in.
The pool was being enjoyed by families and couples with service great there to.

The concierge service was particularly good and so helpful with meetings and travel.
Yes - they are very good.
