The hotel has a great location in the heart of central Moscow. Some of the city's most popular tourist attractions are within walking distance and nightlife is easily accessible from the hotel.
Rooms are definitely aimed at the business traveller attending conferences in the hotel, but they are also comfortable enough to satisfy guests in town on holiday rather than to work. Room service is good and English language newspapers can be brought with breakfast.
The Marriott has pleasant public areas, with space used wisely to create comfortable seating areas in the lobby, which are quiet enough for informal meetings or conducting business over the phone.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast at the hotel is good, with a nice selection of food and drinks to suit an international audience. The Marriott also has two restaurants. The Grand Alexander serves Russian and European dishes while Samobranka specialises in international cuisine. There is also a pleasant lobby bar. Dominated by business people attending conferences during the day, the restaurants might seem a bit stuffy to younger guests.
One of the Marriott's strong points, the fitness centre has a decent selection of weights and cardiovascular equipment which is available 24 hours. Free fitness classes are provided and there is also a sauna and a solarium available for guests to use.
Service at the Marriott is great and staff really do all seem to speak English. Bar staff are happy to chat with you over a drink and the assisstants working at reception are competent and friendly.
