Review – Marriott Brisbane, Twin Executive Room

by Zac George
two beds in a room

Brisbane is home to 4 Marriott properties, the W, the Westin, the Four Points and the Marriott itself. I’ve reviewed 3 of the hotels on the list but still missing two, so I thought It’s time to review the remaining ones.

I booked the Marriott for just over $240 per night which is a little high for the hotel. I just booked a basic room and I was upgraded to an Executive level room free of charge as a Platinum member.

I was also given a list of perks/benefits I could to advantage of during my stay. Naturally, I chose the 1000 points.

The Marriott is a category 4 property which requires 20,000 points for an off-peak reward, 25,000 points for a standard award and 30,000 points for an award night if booked during peak seasons.

When you first enter the room, you’ll first find the bathroom which is located to the right.

The bathroom was clean and tidy, nothing really to major to mention here.

I recently upgraded my iPhone specifically for the wide-angle camera and here are the results, pretty damn impressive!

The total size of the twin Executive room is 33sqm or 355 square feet.

The room features a small sitting area which is located next to the window.

Whenever hotels have airconditioning that’s adjustable to your preference, they’re a winner in my book. Not enough hotels have systems where you’re able to adjust the temp to your liking and it stays at that temperature, well done Marriott Brisbane.

The room does feature a minibar but it’s not stocked with any snacks or beverages.

The hotel also has an Executive lounge, a full-service restaurant as well as a bar, a fitness centre and a heated undercover pool for guests to make use of

The hotel is quite a nice property but location wise it’s not as central to the other 3 Marriott properties. If you’re in Brisbane for longer than a day and want to be closer to things, I would definitely recommend the Westin or W which are in a much better location and things are a lot more accessible.

Did you get a chance to visit the club lounge? What are the hours? Does it operate 5 days per week or 7 days per week?

Hi Greg, I didn’t get a chance to visit but it’s open 7 days a week from 6am to 12pm. Breakfast in the lounge is between 7 and 9 and afternoon drinks and snacks at 5:30-7pm if I remember correctly. Thank you for reading!

Hi Zac- Thanks for your review. I will be in Brisbane next month. I plan on staying at the Westin Brisbane. Is there a Club lounge? I am titanium. Are they generous with upgrading rooms?

Hi Jan, thank you for reading. The Westin certainly does have a club lounge and a great one at that. They are also quite generous with upgrades, a few people I know have stayed recently and had good upgrades. Enjoy your time in Brisbane!

What size are those beds? Using US terms, are they doubles or queens? I’ll be in Brisbane in a few months and need a room with two beds for four larger adults. Only queen size beds work for us. Thanks.

These are double beds.
