I am thinking of going to this hotel. As usual the website gives few details for the Executive Lounge. Can anyone tell me please?
Does it do breakfast?
Does it do evening food?
It makes a difference to me as to whether I pay for a room with ex lounge access or not.
Thanks for that. I have had a reply which says "The Executive Lounge is open Monday through Saturday, and closed on Sundays. The lounge is staffed between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Monday through Friday for breakfast. If you have a room with lounge access included on a Saturday or Sunday morning, then breakfast is included in the hotel's restaurant as the lounge does not provide breakfast on the weekends. The lounge also provides hors d'oeurves and dessert between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages and internet access are also included at all times."
So that sounds like several other ELs I have used in the UK.
sg1974, what did you think of the hotel, and the Executive Lounge please?
The hotel is good. It is centrally located but due to that it is a good idea to request a room on a higher floor.
we stayed on the top floor (10) and we slept fine.
the breakfast in the restaurant was good, I found all on offer at a good standard.
the exec lounge was fine, we had a few drinks there. We weren't around for the evening food though.
parking was 15 per night.
i'd happily stay there again.
The downtown shopping was "Walking distance from the Marriott". It is one of the finest places to shop in GB. I also liked the ruins of "Cardiff Castle".
The prices are a lot less than London (Where I am now. wow, this place is expensive).
Sg, just been there should have more details on the situation there!
Have a wonderful time!
First up would be a visit to Cardiff Castle. It is walking distance from the hotel and able to be seen from the rooms on the higher floors.
i would pay the extra few pounds to go on the premium tour. It was a very informative and interesting 45 minute guided tour. There are some rooms that are only accessible on this tour.
walk around the castle quarter. There were some nice shops and market in this area:
get a map of the city from the hotel upon check in. It was explained to us that you could take a boat to the from the city to the bay area:
unfortunately the weather was pretty ordinary whilst we were there and we didn't get to the bay area.
Also the guide in cardiff castle advised us another nice place to visit was:
unfortunately it was closed in January.
Another place which is more suitable for better weather:
there are a few things here I'd happily visit so another trip is possible.
Thanks for the information! Did not know that. Do not remember seeing any in London, but I wasn't looking either. The place I have been wanting to go to for years, and still haven't made it:
Sea Shell's at Lisson's Grove. Saw it on The Travel Channel, and the "Fish & Chips" looked great. BTW, I hope I got this name right, and now I will look it up on Google!
