This is not a Marriott property. Picture on marriot website totally misleading. They don't recognise platinum rewards customers and the beds and rooms are just like a normal 3 star property. Staff is good as is normal in all south Africa hotels but best to avoid if other choices available.

Stayed here for 4 nights while in town on business. You can't beat the location as the waterfront is right behind the hotel (you just need to go down the stairs and cross the road). The hop-on, hop-off bus stop is there as well. I was in building C, which required that I walk through the university campus to reach my room (same area as the restaurant), but it was no problem! I ate dinner twice at the restaurant (had the buffet) and it was great. Staff was very friendly. The room was perfect f... Read more

This hotel is located just a few steps from the Waterfront and that is really great since that is the only part of the city that is safe for an evening walk. The hotel is clean, breakfast is very good and outside located in summer season and rates of the rooms are good compared with other waterfront hotels. The only negative point is that family rooms are too small ( two very small rooms connecting one to each other with 2 extra small bathrooms in between ...the size of the old prison cellars...

The hotel is located inside the Cape Torn University Campus, in a very confortable location with direct access to V&A waterfront (5 minutes walking distance): the minus is that the hotel facilities are part of the campus, and for example the breakfast area is in building that can be reached just going through the classrooms building. To be noted that in front of the hotel there is one of the main stop of the city sightseening (including ticket office). I guess there is also a parking reserved f... Read more

This is a strange hotel built around the University so fairly sprawling and not a lot of character. The rooms are small and don't have much of a view but the location is perfect and if you've got Marriott points to use its great! It doesn't feel like a Marriott however. The bar is unimpressive and not worth a visit with the VA waterfront under 10 minutes walking with fabulous restaurants, shops etc.

the hotel is well located, but it is a bit odd having to walk through a business school to get to breakfast and the dining area. The two lounges i came across were comfortable but again a bit odd. The hotel lacks a main central space with a bar and dining and comfortable seating. The family rooms are ok and consist of two rooms with one strange shower room and toilet in the lobby area. these are not ideal for a family with teens as they just have frosted glass walls and doors. the wifi was u...

We just stayed 4 nights at this hotel on our first visit to Cape Town. It is made up of 3 separate buildings which are linked through walkways and are shared with a university. A little weird at first but once you know your way around, no issue at all. We had a small issue on check in with incorrect bedding, but the staff quickly addressed this with a smile and put us in a bigger room in building 2. Room was very comfortable (beds a little short though especially if someone is tall). The resta... Read more

This hotel is very well located to access the V & A Waterfront and all the facilities there. However the hotels in co-located wit ha university and for guests it is uncomfortable to navigate within university buildings with long corridors and smaller rooms. Rooms are very modern but in an effort to be modern and post modern, they have cut a few too many corners. Located in the historical "white" prison of Breakwater this hotel has still not been able to shake the confinement of small rooms ........ Read more

My wife and I wanted to visit the Cape Town Boat Show this past weekend (21st and 22nd of October 2017) We decided to make a weekend of it and even though we only live an hour away from the Waterfront, we took the opportunity to use some loyalty points and stay over close to the Waterfront. Now I need to prefix this by saying, I have had excellent experience with the Marriot in general. Indeed to this point I would choose to stay at a Marriot property over many other brands. This general feeli... Read more

Comfortable hotel near Waterfront so very handy for tourists. You are near enough to Cape Town centre and the waterfront so are able to catch buses and trains to visit places in the Cape. We were staying this time because we were going on a cruise to Europe and it was convenient for the Duncan Docks.
