I'm considering to stay 6-night in mid August and can't decide between Marriott Heidelberg and Renaissance Karlsruhe.
- I'm Platinum, thus hotel recognition of MR is important.
- Family of 5 (2 adults + 3 kids ages 3,4 and 6) will go for 2 connected rooms or a large suite.
- Got a car and cheap/free parking in hotel or nearby would be a plus
- Will be using this as base to venture around going on daily excursions. will be touring the city of hotel briefly so city attractions are not that important.
Room configuration and possibility of mega suite upgrade is also a deciding factor. With a family of 5, it would be a big plus if I'm upgraded to a big/multi-room suite instead of paying for two standard connected rooms.
