I'm interested also. Thanks for the long lead time, as we book about a year ahead for most trips. 330 days, to be exact! We did Prague last year for Christmas, and Marrakesh is 2018 Christmas. December of 2019 is wide open!

450 Euros for the Sheraton?! Are they insane?!

Marriott website shows Le Meridien at €202 (I have no basis for assessment of reasonableness however)

Le Meridien is the better choice, sorta why I was shocked!!

To be fair, they are "pool access" rooms, though why anyone would care in December is beyond me. And all guests have pool access, maybe they have easier access??

I thought the Le Meridien was "just ok". Ordinary rooms, terrible wi-fi. Pretty good location though.

The rooms were definitely small, don't recall an issue with the wifi (granted my use was basic), but the breakfast was quite a good spread, and Le Meridien has much better "soul" or "character". I'd say the Sheraton is primarily business oriented, while Le Meridien is more leisure focused. It was more comparing comparing 170 Euros vs 450 Euros, that is just illogical.

For those of you who have some IHG points the Holiday Inn "Nürnberg City Centre Engelhardsgasse 12, Nuernberg 90402" might be an option.
Currently they are charging 20k for a room and my room last year was quite ok. The hotel ist only 1 subway-stop away from Nuremberg Central Station.

I also checked the two Radisson properties, but they are not offering reward nights for these dates.
