This well positioned hotel is located about 20 min walk from the Waterfront. The hotel itself has a nice modern appearance, with full sized courtyard located so you don't get a "locked in by other buildings" feel. The views from the rooms are limited, but gaps can show the harbor and other landmarks like table top mountain park. Still the surrounding buildings tower over this 8 story hotel. A large courtyard, and another hotel next door, give the surroundings for this hotel spacious, you are not butting another building. The security was great, and found it easy to walk anywhere near the hotel with no security; seems safe. The front desk exceptional in helping to pick the rooms, and other concierge services - while check-in was easy. The hotel rooms look great furnished, and spacious, the restaurant in the lobby provides food during the day. the lobby itself seats about 8 people, but the open concept restaurant allows for more in the lobby area. While not many restaurants within 1 block, Marriot has a ($60 rand) shuttle. We found most taxis charged 50 Rand to Waterfront and front-desk had a cab while we exited our room. The Waterfront has many restaurants, stores, food courts, and malls/forums - some might say it's the highlight area of Cape town. Most of the tours leave from the Waterfront too. The staff is perfection from the bell staff, front desk, housekeeping, and restaurant helpers. All pools in South Africa closed due to draught, this hotel too. Refrigerators in the room helpful, and 1GB data Internet coupons can be renewed for free at front desk. These limits typical over South Africa, most hotels give 500MB a day! The breakfast buffet was great, lots of variety, fruits, and breakfast rolls, best part of eating all day. The restaurant also had a limited daytime menu, and I found their style of cooking not to my liking. The beds were comfortable, refrigerator in the room and housekeeping works hard. If you can afford it, the 2-3 bedroom penthouse rooms are worth the extra cost, and maybe the best suites from any other hotels on this side of Cape Town. Would definitely return there again.
