"The bicycles were a nice touch..."
The Marriott Courtyard Stockholm is a fairly typical corporate style hotel, offering most of the usual facilities for business guests. The bicycles for guests were a nice touch! The hotel was clean, with friendly & helpful staff servicing the reception desk and breakfast areas. Situated in Kungsholmen, the hotel is some distance from the city centre and the sights of the Old Town (about 45 minutes walk). However, it is suitable serviced by taxis and is a short distance from bus and metro stops. Next time I'll look forward to cycling around town.
The hotel is brand new and the rooms are nice. The service is very good and breakfast is tasty and fresh. However this hotel is quite far from city center and located in a sleepy suburb of Stockholm. You need to take taxi for 45 minutes in the rash hours to reach the center. Its not recommended to business trips. Also the gym is small and not equipped and there is no water stand. The thirsty guests are asked to drink from the tap!
"Quite good for Marriott, bit pricey though "
I'm a gold member with Marriott and that gets you nothing these days. Over paid for the room. Should have used trip advisor to get a better price. I guess that's what you get for being a loyal member for 20+ years. The rooms are spacious, clean, but a bit worn and outdated. Staff is helpful. This place is very busy with tour bus groups coming in and out. No pool, no hot tub no spa, massage. In Sweden with no massage' That's just wrong, the Bjork restaurant tries to be more than it is. Best advice I can offer the "chef" is the "KISS" method. Keep It Simple Stupid!!! Had one good meal but it took me three tries. Breakfast is nothing special.
"front desk problems"
Stockholm is a beautiful city, I encourage you to go. This hotel was sufficient. However, I had a difficult time with the front desk. I had driven to the hotel and was told I could park on the street. I inquired with another guest, and we were both told that you could park at night on the street for free. However, in the morning there was a ticket on the car for over $100. When the other guest and I talked to the front desk women who told us we could park there, she just said "parking in Stockholm is hard." There was no apology, no acknowledgement of guilt, and no help in trying to address the fine.
"Very nice reception"
Recently stayed at this hotel. It was not in the city center, but the subway could not be easier in Stockholm and this was about a 5 minute ride from City Center. I recommend a daily or three day travel card and you will be set here. The trains come often and are clean. If its sunny out, enjoy the beautiful 30 minute walk along the water to downtown. The check in was so nice. They had left a bottle of wine in the room, because I roll with the Marriott like that...but still, it was an unexpected and nice touch from a Courtyard. The room was nice and clean and the restaurant was excellent as well. If I found myself in Stockholm again, I would definitely stay here again. The people at the reception desk were very kind.
