I'm debating on staying at the Renaissance Munich or the Munich Airport Marriott the night before a 9:30am flight. They both seem to have good reviews. While the Airport Marriott is closer to the airport, the 22 euro roundtrip shuttle service is a big turn-off. How long will it take to get from the Renaissance to the airport on the subway or on the Lufthansa shuttle? Also, both seem to not have concierge lounges so I'm guessing I'm getting breakfast coupons. Anyone know if one breakfast is better than the other? If you've stayed in both hotels, please let me know if you have a preference.
I'd actually recommend the Courtyard downtown, close to the Alstadt. Great location! And, breakfast was included in my redemption stay.
And, it's close to the train station where you can either take the airport shuttle bus or a train to the airport.
The bus takes about 40 minutes. Here's a link to the schedule:
Train takes about 45 minutes. Here's the info link:
I have done both and would not stay at the Airport hotel again.
The Ren, or Marriott in Munich are very superior and the shuttle ride is a straight shot up the autobahn. Likewise the train is a straight shot right inside the airport.
Good luck, but it is not worth the extra time to me to stay by the airport.
Thanks NewHilton and jerrymorgan!
I got great rates for the Ren and the Airport Marriott so that's why I was comparing the two. I'm definitely leaning towards the Ren now. I'm considering staying at the Courtyard on another night so thanks for the mention of the included breakfast, NewHilton. If I'm traveling with a guest in the same room, will breakfast be included for them as well?
