Fantastic location...great for 'Hop on-Hop off' activities. All sorts of restaurants & shopping in walking distance. Great views of water & Table Mountain. Staff always very helpful. Used paid shuttle service several times...very prompt and friendly!

Comfortable and convenient but noisy.
Our only complaint overall was that the hotel is noisy. Otherwise service, cleanliness and location was great. Restaurant was a little expensive but service was awesome and food was delicious. Location right across from the Waterfront couldn't be any more convenient. Our room was located right next to what appeared to be a "lounge" for university students and they were really loud at night and employees were loud in the hall early in the morning.

Fabulous location for a reasonable price
Fabulous location - right across from the Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was quite comfortable with a terrific view of Table Mountain, but had only one electric outlet that we could use for recharging our electronics. We used the transfer service from the airport and back thru them, which I arranged thru email. I was informed that the fee was greater than what their website said, and when we reviewed the bill on departure, the fee was higher again. But it was only a few dollars more and the service was excellent. The breakfast buffet was extensive.

Its like a prison!
It was an old prison, cool for a night I guess, but ultimately not much you can do with an old prison to make it into a nice hotel (obviously... but Marriott didn't seem to realize this). A lot of much nicer places to stay in Capetown...would not recommend this one. Oh and there is a college there to ... altogether very weird.
