“Good location”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Stayed one night at Guangzhou Marriott Hotel Tianhe on 22 March 2014.

The Hotel is less than 5 minutes’ walk from the Sport Road West Metro Station. That metro station is only two stops from the Guangzhou East Railway Station. Adjacent to the Hotel are two big shopping malls, the Grand View Mall and the Tee Mall, where there are many shops and restaurants. There were plenty of taxis waiting at the front of the Hotel. This Hotel (and the nearby Sheraton) enjoys the most convenient hotel location in Guangzhou.

The reception staff checking me in asked me to wait a few minutes because the room was not ready (despite the fact that I arrived at the Hotel at about 5:00 p.m.). That was not a problem but I did feel strange that that reception staff had to go up to the room himself to find out whether it was ready before he could release the room key card to me.

I mentioned in my J.W. Marriott Hotel Shanghai at Tomorrow Square review that its lobby was noisy and crowded. It seems that this Hotel has the same problem. The Hotel room was, however, clean, quiet and the bed comfortable. There were two bottles of drinking water in the room but I was not sure whether they were complimentary. In any event the two bottles looked like they were there for a long time so I did not bother to open them.

I had the buffet dinner and breakfast at the City Bistro in the Hotel. It was a very busy restaurant in the evening, so make sure you have reserved a table. While the choice of food and the quality of them was good (much better than many other hotels in China), it seemed that the restaurant staff may require more training because some of them looked inexperienced. This Hotel is in the heart of one of the biggest cities in China, the guests would certainly expect a higher level of service be provided.

I mentioned the aforesaid staff issue in the hotel survey and received a mail from the Hotel manager thereafter, promising that he will look into the matter. I really appreciate the management’s response as it showed that they did read the survey and care to improve.

The location is very convenient and easy to get to the airport. The hotel is in good condition, and the staff there were very polite and friendly. I sometimes felt that the hotel was a bit impersonal though but it was busy so maybe everyone was stress. Breakfast was very good as expected, but I agree with another reviewer that said the buffet was a bit disappointing. It wasn't bad but given the price, I expected a bit more. Overall though a good location and very nice hotel to stay at in Guangzhou.

Were there for 3 days of business trip .. had initial hiccups in check-in and subsequent room change and was told some misleading information too...

The good points first: the location was excellent.. right in the center of the shopping street of Tianhe road. Room was fantastic, clean and modern. Breakfast quality can be improved but evening food at executive lounge was very good. We've made use of the business meeting room too, which was very nice and comfortable as well.

The hiccup now: Be warn... below is a long paragraph of the hiccup.. but I would like to compliment both Julie Zhang for taking the initiative for informing the duty manager Sam Xu and Sam Xu for promptly apologising for the hiccup when he came to look for us in the executive lounge. He was at least honest to clarify that the room given was a deluxe room and not the executive rooms as those rooms are full and charge us only the deluxe room rate. If not for Julie Zhang for her initiative in informing Sam and Sam immediate action to get us a new set of room cards (and he mentioned he personally check them to make sure it has the right room, wifi access and executive lounge access) and came to us personally to clarify and apologise, I will probably give this hotel a 3 star rating for such absurd hiccups.

The hiccups happen during our check-in, my colleague and me were supposed to be checked into executive rooms but were told there were full. Thus we were given deluxe room but still with breakfast and executive lounge access. We were told we can change to the executive rooms the next day and all we need to do were to leave our luggage packed and inform the front desk when we leave for work the next morning. Next morning, I did that and inform the front desk about my colleague name so that her room can get changed as well. However, the front desk took a pretty long time to check their system and the front desk woman was giving me an "are you sure?" look. Anyway I left my card and left. When we came back to the hotel during noon time, we headed to the lounge and told the front desk to send the keys to us. The keys took quite a long while to reach us and I clearly told the person who sent the key to me to make sure they have given me the right keys and switched the right luggage (and not get mixed up with my colleague's room & luggage). We head out to work again and came back in the evening. To my disappointment, the room key was wrong! I have to head down to the front desk to get them to change.. when I head back up again, the luggage in the room was wrong! So I headed down as I wanted to pass my colleague luggage to them (as I have no idea of my colleague's room number). After I pass the luggage to them and told them the hiccup, they mentioned they will promptly switch the luggage and send it up. I waited for more then 20minutes and luggage still did not appear!! So I called the front desk to enquire and they seem confused, anyway I decided to head for the lounge... only to my disappointment that the card didn't allow me lounge access! I have to head to the front desk again!! I've not mentioned the wifi access was not enabled and I have to key my previous night room number to get through. When I headed down to the front desk, I saw my luggage there waiting and I have to tell them that's mine! To make matter worst, the room that was given was on the 10th floor, clearly not the executive rooms on the 19-21 floor (as indicated in the lift), but the front desk insist these are executive rooms.

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was good. I regularly stayed in nearby sheraton tianhe and now I probably will switch here due to better overall experience.
The location is just next to a big shopping mall. The service from reception to waitress at restaurant was excellent.
We dined every morning and buffet at city bistro during our stay. The buffet was nothing to shout about,it just okay in terms of food quality and varieties.
The indoor pool and facilities were top notch.
Things to improve are :
*Shower pressure was weak (room 1415) or may be all rooms were the same
*Beds were too soft and not really top quality beds were used (its pity because otherwise Marriott Tianhe is a perfect hotel in GZ )
*More Pillow menu and higher quality pillows will be good because their neck supporting pillow were not as good quality as the one offered in sheraton dongguan i stayed earlier ( We are in interior and mattrass industry so we know the quality for these items )
If above 3 issues can be sorted,then I woould give full 5 stars rating on the stay.

As a Hyatt Diamond member I was pleasantly surprised by the top notch product and service I received from Marriott GZ Tian He.

Centralized downtown location, easy access to the airport, ample space and new accommodations make this a great value.

Service was superb. Everyone from maintenance to GM was gracious, friendly and smiling. Staff was top notch.

The property was very clean, rich and modern. Nearby construction could be heard from my 20th floor, yet if a/c was on it would drown out the noise. Pool area was fantastic.

Executive lounge was spacious, well staffed by Mia, Henry and all. The team was excellent. Top tier service.

Food was great, well prepared and inviting to most tastes. Well balanced western and Asian tastes.

I highly recommend one stay here when in the GZ Area.

Stayed in this hotel for 5 days on business and am pleased as this was my first time in Guangzhou. The hotel is quite new and clean. It is centrally located and is close to major shopping centres, transport and restaurants.Staff are very helpful and gym and pool facilities are great. Breakfast offers a variety and i especially like the omelette section where you can choose your ingredients and they make it for you.

I have been to Guangzhou before and usually stayed at the Marriott China Hotel but this time i decided to try the Marriott Tianhe. I'm pleased that I did. Although I still like the China Hotel, I think this hotel is slightly better as it is newer and the location is great. The staff are great, the room standards are excellent and the restaurants are also good. Next door is the Grandview Mall Shopping Centre with a metro line station, there is also a big underground supermarket "Taste" next door. The location is right in the CBD there is plenty to see in your spare time. Also the Executive Lounge is very good with friendly staff, the in-room internet is very fast and I never had any problems connecting. I would recommend this hotel for business and also for families.
