Bottom Line

The 374-room Athens Marriott is a four-pearl, modern block-size hotel off Syggrou highway in the southern suburb of Nea Smirni. The hotel has a rooftop pool, spa, business center, and draws a mix of business travelers and tour groups. Rooms are modern, and include free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and flat-screen TVs. Located 10 to 15 minutes from the city center and its historical attractions, the Marriott is not a convenient choice for tourists wanting to be within walking or metro distance of the major sights, but the hotel does operate a regular daytime shuttle service to and from Syntagma Square.

Oyster Hotel Review

Athens Marriott Hotel

Location

About a 10- to 15-minute drive to downtown Athens

The Metropolitan is in the Nea Smirni suburb of Athens, off Syggrou highway, about a 10- to 15-minute drive to Syntagma Square, the Acropolis, the Plaka, and other attractions. The hotel sits across the road from the planetarium, and that's about the only sight within walking distance, although the area does have several well-priced restaurants. The hotel runs a regular daytime shuttle to and from Syntagma Square. It's about a 35-minute drive to Athens International Airport from the hotel.
