This well positioned hotel is located about 20 min walk from the Waterfront. The hotel itself has a nice modern appearance, with full sized courtyard located so you don't get a "locked in by other buildings" feel. The views from the rooms are limited, but gaps can show the harbor and other landmarks like table top mountain park. Still the surrounding buildings tower over this 8 story hotel. A large courtyard, and another hotel next door, give the surroundings for this hotel spacious, you are not butting another building. The security was great, and found it easy to walk anywhere near the hotel with no security; seems safe. The front desk exceptional in helping to pick the rooms, and other concierge services - while check-in was easy. The hotel rooms look great furnished, and spacious, the restaurant in the lobby provides food during the day. the lobby itself seats about 8 people, but the open concept restaurant allows for more in the lobby area. While not many restaurants within 1 block, Marriot has a ($60 rand) shuttle. We found most taxis charged 50 Rand to Waterfront and front-desk had a cab while we exited our room. The Waterfront has many restaurants, stores, food courts, and malls/forums - some might say it's the highlight area of Cape town. Most of the tours leave from the Waterfront too. The staff is perfection from the bell staff, front desk, housekeeping, and restaurant helpers. All pools in South Africa closed due to draught, this hotel too. Refrigerators in the room helpful, and 1GB data Internet coupons can be renewed for free at front desk. These limits typical over South Africa, most hotels give 500MB a day! The breakfast buffet was great, lots of variety, fruits, and breakfast rolls, best part of eating all day. The restaurant also had a limited daytime menu, and I found their style of cooking not to my liking. The beds were comfortable, refrigerator in the room and housekeeping works hard. If you can afford it, the 2-3 bedroom penthouse rooms are worth the extra cost, and maybe the best suites from any other hotels on this side of Cape Town. Would definitely return there again.

We had booked the Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town North Wharf for our last night in Cape Town. The Hotel is centrally located and just about 25-30 minutes away from the airport. We had a nice corner apartment in the 6th floor. It was really big, which we didn't expect at all. Livingroom, couch, TV, fully equipped kitchen, roomy bathroom (shower and tub) and separate bedroom with a big and comfy bed. The staff at check-in/out, breakfast was really friendly. Breakfast was good. Buffet style from hot and cold, sweet and salty, so plenty to eat. Private car parking is available at the underground parking garage with a direct access to the Hotel by staircase or lifts. Rooftop pool for a relaxing dip. Collapse

I had such high expectations for this hotel but I am sad to say that I was very disappointed. We are a family of 4, my husband is permanently in a wheelchair, we therefore required a wheelchair accessible room, which the North Wharf offers. I also have a 9 year old and a 1 year old so the universal access room with the separate bedroom, fold out sleeper couch and space for a camp cot seemed ideal !! I was so excited to have found what seemed like the perfect room. I booked and paid for this reservation a little over SIX months in advance and called the hotel about 10 days prior to our arrival to ensure that all was in order, which I was assured it was. On arrival at the hotel we were informed that the universal accessible room had been allocated to other guests the night before !? How could this have happened when we had a confirmed reservation for the ONLY wheelchair accessible room ? We were informed that they would try to reach the guests telephonically to request that they transfer to another room ! We were allocated another room while we waited for just over six hours before we could move to our booked and confirmed room. NOT a good way to begin a holiday especially with a tired infant. The room itself was large and comfortable and did meet all our needs except for the kitchen area which in our opinion is not wheelchair friendly as it is so narrow. When my husband was in the kitchen area between the two counters he was not able to open the draws on cupboards on either side ! .The other aspect that he found difficult was the weight of the door leading into the room which is very heavy for someone in a wheelchair and he required help most of the time. This is not helpful to the self esteem of a wheelchair user who wants to be as self sufficient as possible. Overall the impression that I formed during our stay was that of one of distinct lack of attention to detail from there being no room service menu in our room, to our tissues not being replaced when they were finished, to our in room crockery and cutlery never been increased from the standard set of 2 to 3. We were hoping to spend some time at the hotel pool but I have to say that it is a very unwelcoming area which looks like it doesn't see many guests at all and is certainly not a feature of the hotel. We actually went next door to another hotel and used their pool which was sparkly clean and inviting. We did however find the staff at the hotel to be very friendly and always happy to assist when asked. After our stay I received a customer satisfaction survey via e-mail to which I replied with all of this and more and now 2 weeks later I still have not received any response from the hotel whatsoever. yet another indication of their indifference. The hotel is well located and has much to offer such a pity that it did not live up to our expectations and quite honestly really spoilt our once a year family holiday. Collapse

Reception of this hotel is dated and unimpressive. I was mentally writing the letter of complaint to my travel agent when the room became available. Well the rooms are a huge surprise - large with lots of amenities and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast is reasonable but nothing special to write about. Hotel is very convenient for the hop on hop off bus. Reception are helpful and uber drivers have no problem finding the hotel. Its a bit out of the way for the V&A waterfront Collapse
