The Munich Marriott and Renaissance are great bargains for basing in Munich, Germany. They are only 300 meters apart from each other, and both provide a great room, breakfast, and location. The U-bahn is only 100 meters away from the Renaissance. It will take you directly downtown to the Marienplatz. We go here every Christmas to visit the Christmas market. It is a fantastic time. We browse the Christmas stalls, sample the food, and then end the night at the Hofbrauhaus. It's really covenient to just jump back on the U-bahn and end up in the quiet neighborhood surrounding the Renaissance and Marriott. It is very convenient to locate the hotels from the airport (Franz Joseph). You just take the A-9 into town into the Mitterer Ring. The Marriott and Renaissance are right there! Both hotels have lavish breakfasts, and they provide some really good deals. Especially during Christmastime. Last year, we got upgraded to a suite at the Renaissance plus we had a huge buffet breakfast...all for 69 Euros a night! That by far has been my best European deal yet! We've stayed at both Renaissance and Marriott and have been extremely happy with both. We've been coming back to Munich for the past 13 years. We've never been disappointed!
