On our trip to Europe, my son and I only had one night to spend in Copenhagen. We arrived on our Icelandair flight to Copenhagen about 1:30 p.m. and then found the best way to get from CPH airport to Copenhagen city. We arrived at Copenhagen Central station about 2pm and went directly to the Copenhagen Marriott, where we were planning on staying 1 night.

Copenhagen Marriott review – location

The Copenhagen Marriott is located right on the waterfront in the central part of Copenhagen – the address is Kalvebod Brygge 5, 1560 København, Denmark. It’s located about a 10-15 minute walk from the Copenhagen Central train station, and very near the Tivoli Gardens amusement park. It’s also fairly close to the Little Mermaid statue, which is one of the touristy landmarks of Copenhagen.

The lobby is quite spacious and there is a bar with seating as well.

Marriott Copenhagen price

The Marriott Copenhagen is a Category 6 hotel, which means that it goes for 50,000 Marriott points / night. I booked it before the SPG / Marriott merger so it only cost me 40,000 points. Either way that is a good chunk of Marriott points, but compared to cash prices, it’s a pretty good redemption

2800 Danish Kroner (DKK) is about $436, meaning I got a bit over 1 cent per point for my Marriott point, which is definitely above average.

Copenhagen Marriott hotel review – food and drink

As I mentioned above, the Copenhagen Marriott does have a bar on the ground floor, and also has a restaurant.  We did not eat or drink in either place, but they are options.

If you qualify, there is a wide variety of food, drink and snacks in the Copenhagen Marriott executive lounge – see below

The Copenhagen Marriott executive lounge has an ample seating area – we never saw there be an issue with crowding.

Besides the main seating area pictured above, there are additional seating areas and cubicles at the rear of the Copenhagen Denmark Marriott executive lounge, including 2 computers and a small business center with a printer.

The Copenhagen Marriott executive lounge opens at 6 a.m. as mentioned. Between 6 and 6:30 a.m. the staff starts bringing out breakfast. When we got down there about 6:15 they had already put out a variety of meats and cheeses.

We had a 6:52 a.m. train to catch (to Billund and Legoland), so I asked the staff it they would bring out the hot foods a little early, and they were nice enough to do so.

That left us plenty of time to scarf a quick breakfast before hustling to the train station, which we made with no problem.

One of the things I look for in a hotel executive lounge is the “evening reception” which goes by different names but also varies in quality from hotel to hotel. In some hotels, it is truly just light snacks and appetizers, while in other hotels I’ve been in, the evening appetizers are full-on dinner

(SEE ALSO: Which hotels give dinner for free?)

The evening reception food quality at the Marriott Copenhagen executive lounge was definitely on the poorer side. There was a beef stew, and some slightly filled pastries

As well as some fruit salad and bread, crackers and cheese

But not really enough for a dinner, even by my standards (which are incredibly low 😀 )

During the off hours (afternoon), there are some small pastries as well as various soft and other drinks.

Copenhagen Denmark Marriott review – amenities

The Marriott Copenhagen does not have a swimming pool but does have a fitness center, which is actually one of the largest hotel fitness centers I’ve ever seen.  It is a little tricky to get to though! It is on the ground floor (1 floor below the lobby), but only 1 of the 4 elevators goes down to that level – marked with a sign

When you get down to the ground floor, it looks like this – with no real indication that you’re anywhere near a fitness center.

But sure enough, if you go around the corner, you’ll see the Copenhagen Marriott fitness center

They do also have bikes available to rent. When I saw them out front, I thought perhaps they were free for hotel guests, but alas, that is not the case.  They are about USD$15 / day, with a discount if you rent them in the evening and not for the full day.

There is also a large meeting room and convention area on the 1st floor of the hotel (what we Americans would call the 2nd floor)

Copenhagen Marriott rooms and suites

As I mentioned in a previous post, as a Marriott Platinum I was “upgraded” to a Tivoli Gardens / cityview room.

(SEE ALSO: Cmon Marriott, stop your lying upgrade games)

Our room had 2 double beds

The bathroom was quite large, featuring a shower as well as a jacuzzi tub.
