I paid my reservations through Easyjet and paid same if not more than through Marriott. And yet Marriott refuses to give me points for my stay. I will definitely not stay at another Marriott again until this is rectified.

This is a big impersonal convention hotel. Stayed in a junior suite - room was nice - small desk otherwise was fine. Breakfast buffet was fine although there was - NO SERVICE - absolutely none - in 20 minutes no one came to my table - no one offered anything! Excercise facilities were good. This hotel was close to my...

My room on 20th floor facing the Med Sea was totally quiet. It was spotlessly clean, very compact and had most everything you need The hotel service was good but seemed a bit understaffed. No concierge was the main drawback.

We spent 5 days here while my wife was attending a conference. We were very surprised that this business hotel’s rooms did not have a coffee maker, or a room safe, and not even a clock. I called the desk about the clock and was told that they have none. The room was often too warm for our tastes. Even...

I stayed at the AC Forum beginning of November for a conference. Ther hotel was very convenient because it was just around the corner to the convention center. Other than that I was disappointed. There is no W-LAN in the rooms. There should have been one in the lobby, but if you could connect, it was so sloooow. Breakfast was...

The hotel stated it was close to the RR station 650 ft., which it is, but you cannot exit the RR station building near the hotel. So you have to exit one place and walk a few blocks down the street to the hotel. The lobby was nice and the attendants at the front desk were very helpful. The shower...

This hotel is fine based on location to the conference centre but not a great place to stay if you are planning to visit Barcelona as a tourist. Hotel was not cheap at €200 per night and to be honest, the hotel is best described as a functional hotel catering for conference visitors. The hotel has no real soul and...

My room was clean and comfortable - by no means spacious or luxurious. It's all about location for me - steps from the conference center, this was fantastic. We held business meetings in upstairs rooms which were very comfortable and the views were gorgeous. Everyone was happy when they walked in the room. Definitely need to travel out for dinners...
