The DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Warsaw is a four star hotel located only 20 minutes from the city center of Warsaw. It opened only 16 months ago, so everything in this hotel looked brand new! The lobby of the DoubleTree is very large and bright. It’s a very nice lobby area with comfortable sitting areas all over the place. They played lounge music throughout our stay and it had a relaxed feeling. I was surprised by the size of this hotel, they have 359 rooms and do a great job maintaining the whole place. Everywhere I looked, I can assure you it was clean… Upon arrival, every guest will receive a yummie cookie. Such a nice touch and it made me smile 🙂 What a great way to welcome your guests!

We stayed in a standard Twin room and I was very pleased with the room! It is definitely worth its four stars. The room had a good size and was nicely appointed. It had all the amenities I would expect from a hotel of this class. The large shower in the bathroom was great and they do provide a lot of toiletries which were of a good quality. I also appreciated the large desk and cozy little couch. Oh, I do need to mention the drinks in the mini bar are reasonably priced! Some hotels charge outrageous prices for their drinks, but not at the DoubleTree Warsaw! 1,5 EUR for a coke…

A lot of things to do here! The fitness center was one of the better ones I have seen in a hotel! The equipment is of a very good quality and it offers several treadmills, etc. You will always find something to work out, even if the hotel is full. Free headphones are provided for your convenience! After working out, I went to the wellness area. What a great place to relax and rewind after a busy day. The indoor swimming pool is fantastic! I also enjoyed the sauna and steam room which were both complimentary. They also have a kids pool. Actually, they are really child friendly here. I could imagine that families are staying here for a week since they have a kids area, kids club, etc. Even for the business traveler, a business center on the 1st floor is available with computers and printers.

Later that night we had dinner at the restaurant. But before dinner we enjoyed a few great drinks at the bar!

The restaurant itself is nicely and modern decorated without being over the top. Again, prices are reasonable here but maybe that’s because this is Poland? Nevertheless, we enjoyed our dinner! The food was of a good quality.
The next morning we had breakfast there and the buffet was of a good quality with many hot/cold items!

I enjoyed my stay at the beautiful DoubleTree by Hilton Warsaw! I would even call it a luxurious hotel with great amenities. Since it is located a bit out of the center of Warsaw, one could relax and feel at ease here. The surrounding areas are green and all I heard at a sudden moment were the birds, while I was reading a book. Service was top notch, every staff member I met was friendly and it seems that everyone is enjoying their work here. Highly recommended when you are looking for a modern and upper scale hotel out of the center of Warsaw with great wellness amenities. Also, very recommendable for families with children. Lots of fun facilities!

The Marriott Warsaw is a five star hotel located in the new part of Warsaw. It is one of the tallest buildings of the city and has some breathtaking views including a full view of the … . The shopping Mall (the largest one of east Europe) is a 5 minute walk. Very convinient!

The lobby is pretty large and although the Marriott Warsaw has already its age, they have renovated the lobby by putting some nice and modern furniture. The lobby bar is beautiful, do try their lemonade with mint and lemon, very tasty! Upon check-in, guests are asked which view of Warsaw they prefer. I requested a room one of the higher floors with a view of the culture palace.

And yes, we did get a room on the 32nd floor with an amazing view! The rooms are typical Marriott rooms with nice beddings. The bathroom was kind of dated and not very large. I did appreciate the large desk and comfortable small sitting area. The beds were very comfortable! We had a great night’s sleep.

The Marriott Warsaw has a fitness center with the latest equipment. It is run by Holmes Place. There is an indoor pool too. We had a treatment and thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing massage. They do have specials on weekdays so look out for those.

On the top floor of the Marriott Warsaw is the Panoramic bar, it is te highest bar of Poland. Views are great and drinks are reasonably priced! Every day they have happy hour from 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM. Be sure to visit the bar when in Warsaw and enjoy yummie cocktails with spectacular views.

All in all, the Marriott is a good hotel. Although I do prefer the old town of Warsaw, the Marriott has a good location within the new town.
