"Nice Hotel"
Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Convenient to coffee shops and small grocery store. Laundry machine was a plus, also. Breakfast was great. Not too much of a walking distance to attractions. Nice walking path and park nearby.

"Great Location, Svce., & Environmentally Friendly"
We had a wonderful time at this hotel! The staff are particularly friendly and sincerely interested in helping you. Our room was spacious...we had a one bedroom "suite," which was equipped with all your kitchen needs (even a dishwasher). What is particularly special about the hotel is their commitment to the environment by reducing their carbon footprint. The room was equipped with an automatic, electrical shut down system, so that when you left with your "key" (which was used to not only open the door, but also turn on all electrical systems), all lights turned off...brilliant! The location is perfectly situated to all of Edinburgh's main tourist attractions...but is set back slightly, so you don't hear the crowds and traffic. I highly recommend this Marriott Residence Inn in Edinburgh.

"Great hotel close to old town center"
Appreciated the fact that the hotel is situated in a quite section of town just a few minutes away from the Royal Mile so we avoided all the street noise from the Fringe festival which was underway.

"My visit to Edinburgh"
The main purpose of my visit was NOT the Fringe, however, I found it very pleasing. As for the Residence Inn by Marriott, the staff was unbelievably pleasant and very helpful. When I return to Edinburgh for a visit in the future, the Residence Inn will be my first pick.

"Rooms need soundproofing!"
The hotel was nice, and the breakfast offered in the morning was a big plus. The BIGGEST issue that needs addressing is the very thin walls, at one time during the night, I woke my husband and asked him to turn to stop snoring, and we realized it was the guest in the next room! We could hear conversations and televisions late into the night. The one washer and dryer for the use of guests were not sufficient to wash/dry in a timely way, several guests walked away when they saw how long it was taking to run a medium sized load of wash. The location was good except for having to pass panhandlers on the way to the Royal Mile, but I guess this is true in other tourist areas of the city.

"Great hotel"
The staff was very helpful and incredibly friendly. When we had a problem with a connecting room and noise next door they moved us immiediately after being notified. Breakfast was provided every morning and had a nice selection of hot and cold items. The location was out of the hustle and bustle of old town but very easily walkable to everything. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This was a fantastic hotel. For our purposes, perfectly situated close by the University, and an easy walk to Oldtown. Room was spacious, clean, and well-appointed. Hotel itself was very clean and the staff was very attentive. The complimentary breakfast provided an array of choices, and was something to look forward to every morning. We would choose this hotel again for another stay without hesitation.

"Outstanding service, high quality accommodations"
We were very pleased with the Mariott and I would go as far to say that it was on of the Mariottt hotel accommodations we have stayed. The staff was excellent, the breakffast that was part of the room cost was diverse an large, and well beyond what we would have typically received in the United States, and matched any of the better hotels we stayed in the UK. The location was excellent, next. To the University of Edinburgh, yet not feeling as though you were near any college. In addition, the location was blocks from the Roylal Mile, about it's half mile point, so an east walk to the palace or castle. When I return to Edinburgh, this will certainly be my first choice for lodging.

Visiting our daughter who is studying at the university and living nearby so great location! Complimentary breakfast was very good. Great view of the castle from our 7th floor room! Two complaints though. Bed was very soft and was not fixed to the wall and moved around on its castors. The toilet is right beside the bed, not the best location in my opinion.

"Centrally located hotel."
Our first visit to Edinburgh, which we thoroughly enjoyed,this hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the centre, located near an abundance of restaurants and pubs and close to a great park if you're in to running. A bit of a "student vibe" to the area giving it a "vibrant" atmosphere.

"Nice hotel"
Friendly welcome on arrival, check in staff pleasant and helpful. The room contained all the facilities that you need-it had a little kitchenette which we found very handy, the shower was powerful and the bed was comfortable. It was very quiet in our room (we were on the 5th floor) the maids gave us new towels and tidied the room too which was a nice find when we got back from our day out. The breakfast was excellent-everything you need. WIFI was so so, had trouble getting online. Not sure if that was because we were on the 5th floor...Other than that it was a lovely stay and we would come again.

The Marriott now seems a well-established hotel in the Quartermile development of Edinburgh, surrounded by modern apartments and with some coffee shops and delis on site. It is clean and functional, with friendly staff who were very helpful. This was extremely good value, and the choice at the breakfast buffet - cooked breakfast (although no tattie scones), continental breakfast and fruit really sets you up for the day.

"Paying for location over quality."
This Hotel is in a great location for the City, everything is within easy walking distance. The room was adequate, and to be fair was one of the less expensive, in hindsight I would pay more for a bigger one. The cleanliness fell short of it's 4 star rating for me, under the bed was filthy, with big black scuff marks on the floor from the bed feet. Whilst hard floors are easier to keep clean, carpet around the bed area is quieter and nicer in the morning. There was mildew in the shower, again just attention to detail, overall the public areas are acceptable, but the reception area is woefully inadequate to serve breakfast.

The issues we had was with the noise of the area - college kids out until 3am and construction starting early the next morning. Additionally, the bed and pillows were uncomfortable. Not a bad hotel by any means but probably will not use again.
