The Marquis Marriott hotel, about 50 storeys, is one of a kind. The hotel as such and related services are quite usual, but having a room at the 40th floor provides you with a breathtaking view of the city. Nice to visit once in a lifetime.More

Thank you for you review. The views of the city are amazing from the 20th floor on up. I appreciate the great comments and hope you come back again soon.
Stayed at the Marquis during Music Midtown. A bit of a distance if you want to walk to Piedmont Park (which we did) but the hotel was very nice with plenty of amenities and a very nice and under used pool. Definitely recommend!!
Thank you for the great review. Music Midtown was awesome! Glad you walked over to Piedmont park. It is about a mile and a half away but on the right day it can be a great walk. Come back again soon!
The Marriott Marquis/ATL is like something from a Sy-fy movie. Like being inside of a GIANT whale like Jonah! It is a behemoth. Built in 1985, I understand it was refurbished last year. The rooms are nice, but not typical Grand-style like most Marriotts. Especially the Davenport Collection in Spokane. The food and adult drink prices in the lobby bars and restaurants are ridiculous. 2 drinks, and not well made at that, cost over $30! A hamburger in the Velocity Bar cost a whopping $17!! The staff was great, and the location worked, but it is clearly overpriced.
I was attending a church conference for the Episcopal Church and we were given a 1/2 price consideration ($135). Also, city/state taxes are huge. I had no complaint about the bed, the bathroom, or the furniture. The TV was a huge LG flat screen there is a fridge and lots of storage space, but the architecture is WEIRD. Almost scary. I agree with the review that it looks like a Sy-Fy prison. Hall ways go wandering wrapping themselves around the strange contours of the building.
The outside is just a odd as the inside and Atlantans call it the "Pregnant Building" as the lower floor bulge out.
My 23rd floor deluxe king was very nice with a spectacular view straight up Peach Tree Street to the FOX Theatre!
Doubt I'll stay here again.
Thank you for your review. I've heard the comparison before! I'm glad you loved the hotel and I hope you come back again soon.
Just stayed 4 nights this week. Hotel staff incompetent and hotel looks like a futuristic science fiction prison. Booked in to my room, after a confusing check in, then 4 hours later as I was getting ready to leave my room, in walks a lady who asked what I was doing in her room? She showed me her keys and confirmed we had the same room number and had been booked in to the same room. We went to the front desk together where the receptionist was dismissive and rude to her. I was given another set of key cards, which worked for one day then would not work the next day. After traipsing up and down to get yet another set of keys, this happened again the next day. The next night the whole hotel was woken by a fire alarm at 1.30 am. Then again another fire alarm at 4.30 am. When I checked out later in the week, yet another receptionist screwed up my bill. There were incorrect charges on my credit card which she was trying to fix. Instead of using the computer system to make the changes she was using a calculator with a roll of paper on it to calculate how much she had to take off the bill. She made two miscalculations and after I left I felt that she did not really know what she was doing. Sure enough when I got back home, the transactions had not been made. I called customer service and spent one and a half hours on the phone, most of it on hold, and for whatever reason this person could not fix it either, and eventually I was disconnected. My bill is still not fixed so I will be calling corporate on Monday to see if incompetence runs through the whole organization. I travel frequently for work and always use IHG group hotels, Holiday Inn etc. I dont know what possessed me to pick this one, but I know I will never use a Marriott Hotel again. Oh, and $45 per day for parking, not including the tips you have to give to everyone who even looks at your car is a complete ripoff, and they know it. So is breakfast at $26. Welcome back IHG hotel group
Thank you for your review. Your stay was horrible and I am so sorry about your experience. I will share it with everyone in the hotel so we can learn from this and improve. I am very sorry about the fire alarm going off in the middle of the night. Someone pulled the alarm twice. We have a good idea who did it and we are doing all we can to make sure they never do something like that again.
The interior of this hotel is spectacular, and most of the employees we encountered were engaging and helpful. A bonus for travelers with Marriott status is that the concierge lounge is open for breakfast (most aren't). It's connected to Peachtree Center and other downtown hotels by skywalks, so it's very convenient for large business events.
But we also encountered some downsides. The entire room had one small drawer - my wife and I shared the room for nearly a week and had to store most of our clothing on the various horizontal surfaces. The other problem we had was trying to extract our car from the valet service when we needed it (there's no self parking). Often times nobody answered the phone, and the morning we left we had to physically hunt down someone in the parking garage to get it.
Thank you for your review. Thank you for the great comments about our staff and the location of our hotel. I am sorry about your valet parking experience. I will share your comments with them and follow up so they know what happened to you.
This hotel is old and needs restoration. The rooms bathrooms especially are in need of great help. I accidentally left my wallet at home, i had gone to the bank and gotten plenty of cash. I was sick so i was in my room wanting to call room service. I did and it took forwever to get them to agree to let me pay with cash. I had a tiny caesar sald, 2 cans of coke and a brownie. The it all came in plastic boxes and it was tiny. The cost of everything was $38.76 ridiculous. The cans of coke each cost $4.00 each. This place is a very expensive hotel with no value for that price. HOrrible experience.
Thank you for your review. I am very sorry you did not care for the hotel. We recently finished a $70 million renovation in the rooms and public space and meeting space. I hope you try us again in the future.
