Best value and conveniently located Marriott properties in Asia?

Iím looking at my travels to Asia so far and I find that I tend to go to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, and Tokyo. If I were to do mattress runs in these citi, which ones would you pick? If you are staying and looking for value in a convenient location, which properties in these cities would you pick?

For mattress runs, KL. Tons of properties in the $100 USD range, often sub $100 that are good. LM is excellent value. Sheraton not great but for mattress ok. I think we paid $69 USD a night for 3 of us at LM. One of the best deals in whole sister

Depending on where you are based you might prefer Indonesia for the cheapest mattress runs in Asia. KL is pretty good though...

I read about Indonesia, but there are couple of problems. Unless things have changed since I was in Indonesia, I need a visa. I prefer a city that have a rail connection to the city centre.

Hi,

There are several Courtyards in Hong kong ( inc one at Sha tin) which might be reasonable. I'm not sure I would go just now due to the small potential risk of disruption due to demonstrations but summer has highr risks of showers /typhoons . I went in the first week of December last year and loved all the decorations

Regards

Hi,

The courtyard HK ( on Connaught Road) will be more convenient ( it is a bit west of the Macau ferry terminal on HK island) but with 2 subway/ metro stations near by. The other Courtyard ( Sha tin) is a bit further out.

A bit? It's probably an hour on public transport to TST or Central. 20-30 minutes without traffic in a taxi.

It is a decent award category 2 option with lounge if you want to do a 5 or 10 night stint to get a lot of cheapish nights in...

Hi,

Thanks. I did not think it took that long to Sha tin on the train from TST ( in November I was at the Hyatt TST and took the train to TST, walked passed Snoopy World and then explored the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monestary ( a good workout climbing the stairs) but given the additonal walk to the Courtyard , aan hour would not be too far off

Gotta love Surabaya. Cheapest Marriotts i found so far. 30$ a night. Great at the beginning of the year to get the nights up.

Wow, am I reading this properly? That Marriott is a Category 5?
