Rooms at the Windsor Marriott Hotel


A peaceful night's sleep and no rush to the airport in the morning

Staying at the Marriott Windsor, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were at a country spa, with comfy beds, down bedding and egyptian cotton linen, aromatherapy toiletries in the en suite and subtle artwork on the walls. The hotel was refurbished three years ago and it shows in small details like the high-quality desk chair attending your personal workspace, or the plasma-screen TVs in the rooms, co-incidentally offering both satellite channels and pay-per-view movies.

You'll find all the usual features: a comfy armchair, the standard kettle with tea and coffee, hair dryer and trouser press, but also a few items you won't find in the average airport hotel. You have a reasonable-size safe - big enough for a laptop, which you can connect to the hotel's wifi from your room for a set fee. Given that the hotel is just 15 minutes from the airport and on a motorway, the windows are soundproofed to maintain the peaceful country atmosphere. If you should find yourself experiencing an unusual bout of British sunshine, each room even has its own climate control.

The hotel doesn't have any connecting rooms, which could be a blessing to some people, but it does have rooms with two double beds to sleep four. Some rooms have one double and a sofa bed. The hotel also has some rooms with wider doors and adapted bathrooms for disabled guests.

The Marriott likes to think of itself as more than just an airport hotel with rooms that are designed for comfort, not just somewhere to rest your head on your way to the airport.
