We did not stay in Bucharest at the Marriott. It was quite out of the way. We stayed instead at the Hilton Plaza Athenee in the center of the old city. It was wonderful and we got quite a discount as opposed to an award. We really enjoyed Romania and had plenty to do in the 4 days we were there. Very cheap city, except for hotels. Concerts were $3 to $7, beer at a kiosk 50 cents, dinner at a nice cafe $4. Museums less than a dollar. We were embarrassed to ask for the senior rate! The mountains outside Bucharest are quite beautiful, drove through them. I think it is an up and coming country! We were there two days after Sept 11 and the people were so kind it made us cry.
