Marriott Copenhagen: Solid but without much soul

For this short stay in the Danish capital, I will stay at the Marriott Copenhagen, a hotel I already know for having spent a weekend there with my wife a few years earlier.

As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed:

Today’s itinerary

Booking

I booked this hotel about 3 weeks before my stay. Options are few and far between in the Danish capital: no premium IHG, and at Marriott, a super low-rated Tribute Portfolio, some Moxy and this perfectly located Marriott.

It will be for nearly 170 € the night that I will book.

Since most of my Suite Night Awards expire at the end of the year, I will use one for this stay even though I don’t really need it.

Arrival

I arrive at the hotel in the early afternoon. The journey from the airport is very fast with the train line that brings you to the central station in 13 minutes, to which you must add a 5 to 7 minute walk to reach the hotel.

When I arrived at the reception, after checking my identity, I was told that my room was not yet ready. However, as I had a telephone meeting starting within 15 minutes of my arrival, I requested access to the Executive lounge, located on the first floor of the property.

During my call, the receptionist notified me that my room was ready, so I go to the reception after him.

The formalities are not fast because the systems are offline due to an update of the latter. The check-in must therefore be done by hand and my details are collected by the receptionist.

He confirmed my upgrade to the Executive Suite, and of course gave me access to the executive lounge. More petty, the breakfast at the restaurant is charged 90 Danish kroner.

Suite

My suite, 728, was located on the 7th floor of the property, near the elevators.

The entrance leads to the main room, furnished with a sofa and comfortable armchairs, and a large desk with a television set at one end.

A generous welcome package was laid out for me, with a half bottle of wine, a mix of nuts and a box of licorice bombs (which I hate), and a large bottle of sparkling water.

The second room is the bedroom, a bit underfurnished, with an uncomfortable bed. The coffee tables are large and equipped with acceptable connectivity.

The bathroom is large, with shower and bath, and a separate toilet from the main room.

A very comfortable room, but with a very dated Marriott decoration.

Finally, a video tour of this suite:

Hotel facilities

The hotel has a fitness room that I would not have the opportunity to visit during my stay.

Catering

The hotel’s main restaurant, the Midtown Grill, is located on the first floor of the hotel. I will not visit it.

However, I will visit the Executive Lounge also located on the first floor, both in the afternoon and in the morning before leaving.

The place is spacious, nicely decorated, the food is of high quality and the staff absolutely charming.

Look for a more complete review in my first report on the hotel in 2019.

The breakfast offer is delicious.

Departure

The departure formalities will be very simple and the invoice will be sent by e-mail immediately afterwards.

Bottom line

A solid stay in a pleasant hotel, but the rooms could have a decorative refresh.
