Marriott Hotel Leeds

Marriott Hotel Leeds

For the best part of a year, whilst working away, I called the Marriott Hotel Leeds home.

Tucked away in a cute, quiet square just off Boar Lane opposite the new Trinity shopping centre, you can escape the hubbub of central city noise whilst still being a mere 10 minute walk from the train station and for me, the all important Harvey Nichols!

I can safely say all the staff were fantastic and really took the time to look after regular guests by learning your name and your room / visit preferences. It did make me feel like Alan Partridge though – and no, I didn’t take my own plate!

If you have ready my Courtyard review here, you will know I am a loyal fan of the whole Marriott chain, so when picking a hotel to call home, it was a safe bet to choose the Marriott Hotel Leeds location.

Approaching the entrance you are greeted by the eternally cheery and pleasant doorman who will either help you in with your luggage or park your car for you – I always went for valet parking – why not eh? It only cost a little more than regular parking and you don’t have to lug your bags across the square from the neighbouring NCP. This was always important to me when I had a big suitcase, laptop bags and a handbag!

With a classic lobby, you can grab a coffee and pastry while waiting to check in or even take advantage of the on site Bar 1871 or newsagent (also open to public). Once checked in, if you are after a quiet night sleep, ask for a room facing the square or if you like a little more action in your life, the rooms facing Boar Lane provide endless entertainment when people watching out of the windows.

As you’d come to expect from a hotel of this size, the rooms are incredibly spacious and generous and mostly operate on the 2 double bed lay out which makes it a great way to split costs if you are visiting for a girly weekend or if you and your other half just want to starfish the bed.

Tucked away in the basement level you will find a pool, jacuzzi, sauna and a gym whilst up above there are meeting rooms, function rooms and a members lounge providing light snacks and refreshments throughout the day and night for Marriott Rewards members or Executive room guests. For all there is an extensive room service menu and a restaurant – the Midtown Grill, if you are feeling hungry for something unusual, the hotel also has an onsight Indian restaurant – AM Kitchen & Bar – which is delicious!

As I called the Marriot Hotel Leeds home for so long, I am quite sentimental about the old girl and if I am in the area, it is the only place I ever consider staying. The service is always impeccable, the quality and condition is always guaranteed to be high at a Marriott property and with rooms often available for <£100, it is actually quite reasonable when some ‘budget’ hotels near by can top out at £80 a night in some cases.

Yes it is 5 month away but if you are planning on visiting Leeds for their Christmas Market, book in to the Marriott like I do, their Christmas Tree is always ginormous and pretty!

Rooms start from £64
