“did not disappoint”
Reviewed 21 December 2009

Surprised at some of the negative reviews and relatively low ranking. This is a small hotel with very smart Deco revival interiors and a very attractive atrium, the roof of which is the glass bottom of the roof-top swimming pool. The junior suites are on the side of the hotel but have a wide view across the bay from a large picture window. The room was large, with a sitting area with a sofa and coffee table and a separate desk. The sitting room does not adjoin the bedroom and is smartly designed, but windowless-you would n't want to sit in it-but it did well for our luggage! I did not investigate, but the sofa might be an extra bed, which would do for a child. Very smart marble bathroom. Absolutely excellent breakfast buffet with a wide variety of Indian and European stuff. All staff extremely pleasant and helpful.
The bar is a dark brown 'English Pub' - they'd have done better to keep to the Deco decor.
Very well situated - most sights are within walking distance if you are reasonably able - if not taxis should not cost more than 50 rupees (about 65p)
Only downside-quite a high charge for internet access and in spite of another comment, there seemed to be only a plug-in connection. There was wi-fi in range from a provider who wanted to send some-one round to sign me up, not what you want when you are only there for a few days. This hotel may be mid-range price wise by European standards, but it is extremely expensive by Indian standards, and the least one expects these days is free wi-fi in all rooms.

Marine Plaza is nice hotel. It is not one of those really big places. Personnel is very friendly and helpful. I was having some difficulties with the Internet connection in my room, and eventually the IT manager came and offered me a fee high speed wireless access

Rooms are quite large, and of course you don't get the sea view in every room. For the best view, you need to go to the 6th floor, where they have pool and a nice terrace.

The room I had consisted of two parts, one area with a desk - more like a small office., great even for a small meeting with 3 or 4 persons. The bedroom is separated by the bathroom unit which located between the two. Quite efficient. Also a nice touch is a daily fruit basket and some sweets. The room was kept very clean during my stay.

A special mention is deserved for the various buffets this hotel serves. Breakfast is quite extensive, but I really enjoyed the lunch buffet. Lots of choice, all nice and fresh. It's a good sign that people from outside the hotel come in for lunch.

All in all, I think this is quite a find. I got a good deal with Expedia and therefor consider it value for money. I also like the location, you're on Marine Boulevard, but turn one corner and you're in 'Busting Bombay!'
