    Location as a transit hotel is good. Bit of a pain to go thru security to access restaurants and shops. Room is spacious, and shower is excellent

    Drainage in the bathroom especially the hand basin is poor (some blockage); I have reported this issue before and it seems to be a permanent state of affairs at this hotel; same with the toilet, it does not flush properly (again not the first time for me to report this). The TV is well positioned in the room but the reception quality of most channels is far below acceptable. For a hotel of this nature and price range this needs to improve. Guests have very little to do at the transit hotel so good quality channels are not a luxury. The Internet is good but troublesome to get a connection.

    Convenient location

    The hotel clearly relies on its exclusive airside location alone to charge its high prices. I’ve stayed here twice out of necessity within the last 2 weeks. Both times the WIFI was “temporarily down” due to server and provider issues I was told. Although the room itself was clean, the bath was filthy and clearly overlooked at the last clean. All tv channels had a fuzzy picture - I was trying to watch a World Cup rugby game on super sport 1. The air conditioner was not working and the toilet flusher was not working. Very disappointing given that you expect Marriott hotels to maintain a certain minimum standard. I will certainly give this one a miss in the future

    The bed was amazingly comfortable, and the sheets, too. it was nice to have water/tea/coffee and a great shower. It was weird that the picture on booking.com was clearly NOT the same property. This property is basically one floor in the airport, with a reception area on a different floor. Not a hotel.

    It wasn't great that you had to go back through security to go eat dinner, showing passport, taking out liquids, etc. It wasn't great to have a reception desk on the 1st floor, and then the "hotel" on the 3rd floor. Not really a hotel, but a hallway. It was overpriced for what it offered.
